West Ham manager David Moyes will need to win over Hammers fans by getting off to a good start against Bournemouth this evening. The Cherries are in an awful run of form themselves and it should be a good opportunity to pick up three points.
In terms of injury news, there are three players currently on the treatment table. David Martin should be available after recovering from a thigh injury, but Andriy Yarmolenko (hamstring) and Jack Wilshere (groin) are both ruled out:
West Ham’s Predicted XI To Face Bournemouth:
Fabianski, Fredericks, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Rice, Noble, Antonio, Lanzini, Anderson, Haller
Bournemouth’s injury situation is pretty dire at the moment. Josh King has been added to the list of absentees with a hamstring injury. David Brooks (ankle) Jack Stacey (hamstring), Lloyd Kelly (thigh), Charlie Daniels (knee), Adam Smith (ankle) Nathan Ake (hamstring) and Danjuma Groeneveld (ankle) are all out of contention.
However, Simon Francis could be available if he passes a fitness test on a troublesome knee injury.
Bournemouth’s Predicted XI:
Ramsdale, Francis, Cook, Mepham, Diego Rico, Harry Wilson, Billing, Lerma, Fraser, Solanke, Callum Wilson
At the bookies, West Ham are favourites with Coral pricing them at 19/20 odds-on. A draw is 14/5 with Betway while a victory for Bournemouth is 29/10 at BetVictor.
Predicted Score – 3-1 to West Ham
