Bournemouth are in a difficult position coming into the game. The team has not been able to get any kind of a positivity going over the last few months. After having been in a position to finish in the top six, Bournemouth are now struggling to even finish in the top half of the table. West Ham have gone through a difficult period at the start but they are flying high in the table with a consistent set of results. Manuel Pellegrini’s team may be affected by the transfer rumours surrounding Marko Arnautovic but our preview would go with a win for the Hammers.

First Goalscorer odds
Marko Arnautovic has scored the opening goal for West Ham in two out of the last three matches but the striker is likely to be left out of the squad due to ongoing transfer speculation.
