Kieran Trippier for what happened during Newcastle United’s draw at Bournemouth.

Kieran Trippier admitted he was at fault for Bournemouth’s opener in the 1-1 draw against Newcastle United.

A corner into the box by Jaidon Anthony was flicked on by Dango Ouattara before Marco Sensei tapped home at the back post. As the replay showed, the Magpies stand-in skipper didn’t track the of Ouattara in the build-up.

“I lost my man. It is not like us but it is sloppy, myself included,” said Trippier. “We have to go again. We get ready for another game next week.”

The England right-back rallied his teammates, who found an equaliser on the brink of half time via Miguel Almiron’s 10th goal of the 2022-33 campaign.

Both teams pushed for a winner in the second-half but neither were successful. Newcastle remain fourth in the Premier League table, while the Cherries sit 19th.

“I think we did well,” Trippier added. “In certain moments, Bournemouth are good on the transition. They defend well and break forward and we have to be aware of that.

“This is a tough place to come and the most important thing is that we don’t get beat and it is another point that could be massive come the end.

“We didn’t start strong. We knew Bournemouth would come out of the traps quick. They are at home. Overall we are happy but we have so much to work on.”

Indeed, it could have ended in disaster for United if it weren’t for Trippier’s goal-line clearance during injury time to deny Dominic Solanke.

That saw the former Tottenham Hotspur and Atletico Madrid stone for his earlier mistake.

Trippier said. “It was just instinct. Decided to get back on the line and try to affect it. Thankfully I did.”
