Team News

West Ham
Bournemouth
  • Slaven Bilic will still be without Enner Valencia, Andy Carroll and Joey O'Brien, who are all still sidelined through injury. The West Ham boss will also be without Adrian, who will serve the first of his three match ban, and Mauro Zarate, who is out for the next two matches with injury.
  • Darren Randolph will earn his first Premier League start for West Ham, in place of Adrian.
  • New singing Pedro Obiang is likely to earn his full debut in place of 16-year-old Reece Oxford, who struggled in his second Premier League outing and is also struggling with a knock.
  • Modibo Maiga is likely to deputise in Zarate's absence.
  • Eddie Howe is likely to go with the same XI that performed so admirably at Liverpool on Monday night. The Cherries were unfortunate to come away without a share of the points and will be hoping to seal their first points away to West Ham on Saturday.
  • Christian Atsu and Shaun MacDonald could make the bench, although unlikely.

Prediction

  • After the highs of beating Arsenal in their Premier League opener, West Ham were handed a reality check against Leicester. The problem for Slaven Bilic's side will now be whether they can bounce back against a Bournemouth side itching for their first ever Premier League points.
  • The Cherries were very unlucky not to have earned at least a point against Liverpool on Monday and Eddie Howe will be hoping confidence hasn't been affected too much by the result.
  • West Ham represent a far superior outfit on paper, but football matches are decided on the pitch and Bournemouth's desire could see them snatch something at the Boleyn Ground on Saturday.

  • please can someone explain why andy carrol and valencia are not even on the bench? :)

  • @erolneymargmail.com Both are injured I think

  • Yeah maybe both defenses were weak, but what a gripping match!

  • Not watching this, was Wilson targeting poor wee Cresswell?

  • Is wilson better than payet now spencer

  • So are West Ham not going to finish in the top 4 now? So close yet so far.

  • Both teams to score and Bournemouth to win!

  • West Ham will have problems if they dont buy some winger. They dont get a lot of players in the box. From three goals they scored two were big mistake from goalkepper. they will try to score from set pieces but that is not enough. Bournemoth has big chance to win. West Ham needs Gradel he can cute through defence. Gradel, King and Wilsson are capable to push B. higher on table. Draw or B. win

  • Ritchie man of the match

  • Bournemouth TO WIN

  • Honestly, there's too much unnecessary hype with Bournemouth, same as Burnley last season. 2-0 west ham.

  • @Zee530 Yeah? Honestly?

  • @SargentBoston They're still going down

  • 0-0 with Payet as MOTM.

  • @Overmars Couldn't have got this one more wrong really...
