Soccer-Rondon double earns Newcastle second straight win
Newcastle, full of confidence following their previous victory over Watford, got off to the perfect start when Rondon opened the scoring after just seven minutes following fine build-up work from DeAndre Yedlin.
Bournemouth's Adam Smith suffered what appeared a serious injury and play had to be suspended for eight minutes while he received treatment before being carried off with suspected knee ligament damage.
Rondon grabbed his second five minutes before the break when he met Kenedy's cross and directed a powerful header past Asmir Begovic.
Eddie Howe's side were unfortunate not to come away with a point in the second half as Jordan Ibe fired over when clean through on goal and Dan Gosling's 84th minute effort was ruled out for offside. (Writing by Marc Isaacs Editing by Ian Chadband)
