Bournemouth vs West Ham United Match Preview
Bournemouth’s excellent start to the season has turned badly wrong and they are very opposable favourites against in-form West Ham.
Eddie Howe was still favourite to be the next England manager this week, but 11 defeats in his team’s last 14 matches is not the sort of form to advertise his prospects for that job.
The Cherries have been overtaken in the Premier League table by West Ham, whose opening to the campaign was in complete contrast to Bournemouth’s but they have got their act together very well culminating in last weekend’s victory against Arsenal.
However, the Hammers cannot yet be trusted implicitly on their travels. A 2-0 defeat at Burnley just before New Year exemplified that, while at the time of writing the future of their star forward Marko Arnautovic was uncertain amid reports of an impending move to China.
Although they are nine points ahead of the relegation zone, Bournemouth cannot feel safe if they continue to be turned over with the regularity they have since the start of November.
They cannot be backed to win this game, but a draw should be within their compass and they have the memory of their 2-1 win at the London Stadium in August to call upon.
