Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has played down suggestions that Newcastle's player will 'already be on the beach' ahead of Wednesday's clash.

The Cherries lie 18th in the Premier League, while the Magpies are in 13th place and effectively safe from relegation.

Yet despite the standings, Howe does not expect United's players to be half-hearted when the two sides meet at the Vitality Stadium - even revealing that he's been impressed with what he's seen of Steve Bruce's men.

Asked about United's players having their mind elsewhere, Howe responded: "Yeah, I don't see that when I watch Newcastle.

"Since lockdown, I think they've been very good, very competitive, and I've been very impressed with their performances now for a consistent run in the Premier League.

"I think they've done very well.

"We expect a very difficult game and a very motivated team to come here, but just looking at ourselves, which is all we can do, to impact . . . we have to be a lot more creative as a team, be full throttle to be to impact the game from the start."

Howe's side come into the game against Newcastle bottom of the form table - having lost five of their last six games, drawing the other, but the Cherries' boss denied Wednesday's game was a 'must-win' or 'the biggest game of the last five years.'

"It's one of them but then I'd say the same about the next seven - they're all going to be the same, and this is where it is dangerous because people can build certain games up to be bigger than others.

"I believe we can win every game we've got between now and the end of the season but the only way we can do that is if we perform at very best levels.

"No game is a write-off in my opinion but certainly we have to start winning and performing very quickly.

"We can't look at it in that way [a must win] in my opinion or the group of games ahead of us, we just look at the next one.

"When I say we can win the next seven games that's my mindset, I always believe we can and no-one should tell us differently.

"The only game in our mindset right now is Newcastle, everything else will take care of itself beyond that, but we need to give everything to win this game."

Bouremouth will be without Callum Wilson who is suspended, while Josh King is 'touch and go.'
