Bournemouth nabbed a late, late win at St James's Park thanks to a Steve Cook header in added time.
But how did Newcastle's players rate in the loss?
Newcastle United XI (4-4-1-1)
Rob Elliot - One or two vital saves in the opening 45. Kept things level but could do nothing about Cook's winner... 7
DeAndre Yedlin - Caught out of position on one or two occasions... 6
Jamaal Lascelles - Another solid, physical performance cut short by injury suffered at the end of first half - couldn't seem to shake it off... 7
Florian Lejeune - Excellent with the ball. Booked for absolutely nothing... 7
Javier Manquillo - Far too many needless fouls... 6
Isaac Hayden - Not one of his better days... 6
Jonjo Shelvey - Flashes of quality but doesn't influence the game anywhere near as much as he should... 6
Matt Ritchie - Hit the post early on. Left it all out on the park against his former side... 7
Christian Atsu - An ever-willing runner. Always tries to beat his man. Little end product, bar one first-half effort blocked by Cook... 6
Joselu - Played in a slightly withdrawn role. Did very little to impress, despite plenty of trying... 6
Dwight Gayle - Thought he'd opened his account for the season, but was flagged offside. Best show of the season so far... 6
Ciaran Clark (for Lascelles 54) - Beaten too easily for the winner... 6
Ayoze Perez (for Joselu 68) - Added a bit of urgency to United's play... 6
Jacob Murphy (for Atsu 82)... N/A
