Alexander Isak scored his first goal at St. James’ Park, but Newcastle is still winless since the Premier League season’s first day after being restrained by a responsible Bournemouth.
With just over an hour played, Eddie Howe’s team fell behind his former team when midfielder Philip Billing stretched to direct a Jordan Zemura cross from the left wing past Nick Pope.
After Jefferson Lerma was found to have handled a Kieran Trippier cross by the video assistant referee, Newcastle was awarded a penalty and levelled five minutes later thanks to Isak, a club record £60 million summer signing from Real Sociedad.
Despite moving up to 10th in the standings, Newcastle’s winless streak now stands at six games after their fifth draw of the year.
Under interim manager Gary O’Neil, Bournemouth have collected five points from a possible nine, placing them in 12th place.
