West Ham United vs AFC Bournemouth Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Despite all the expectations before the start of the campaign, West Ham were unable to prevent yet another horrendous performance at Anfield, as they lost 4-0 against Liverpool. Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane provided a 2-0 lead for Liverpool going into the half-time break. The second-half was once again comfortable with Mane and Daniel Sturridge scoring the goals. Bournemouth came up with a crucial 2-0 win over Cardiff City to start the campaign in a positive way. Ryan Fraser was able to break the deadlock with a 24th-minute goal before the points were made safe by Callum Wilson’s late goal.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Both games involving the Hammers and Cherries last season finished as stalemates. In fact, there has been very little to separate the two teams over the last four meetings. This time around, things are expected to be a little different with West Ham having had more time together with the new players. Bournemouth are also on the road and getting positive results on the road is not a forte of the team. I would pick a win for West Ham.

Games between West Ham and Bournemouth have been tight encounters and there is just a solitary game with a winning margin of more than one goal in the last six meetings. West Ham still need time to gel the players and it will be a close contest once again. I would pick a one-goal winning margin for West Ham.

West Ham win – 21/20

West Ham winning margin by one goal – 11/4

West Ham United Preview

West Ham need to shake off the heavy loss against Liverpool as soon as possible. Despite making vast changes to the squad, the Hammers went with a customary defeat at Anfield. Now, the club can look forward to a difficult run of fixtures, which includes opponents like Arsenal and Everton, in the next five games. Manuel Pellegrini is no stranger to the Premier League and the former Real Madrid boss will be targeting certain matters in order to achieve season objectives. Furthermore, the hammers may also need a little more time as they are trying to infuse plenty of new players into a team.

West Ham United Team News

Andrew Carroll (ankle), Winston Reid (ligament), and Manuel Lanzini (cruciate ligament) are unavailable for West Ham.

AFC Bournemouth Preview

The Cherries had a standard fare against Cardiff City and were able to pick up three points on the opening day. There are plenty of positives for Eddie Howe and his team. Now, they can look forward to a smooth introduction for likes of Diego Rico and Jefferson Lerma, who are the big-money signings of the summer for the Cherries. Bournemouth had a pretty poor away record last season after managing just four wins and suffering nine defeats in away games. Once again, the primary focus for the club will be to get positive results at the Vitality Stadium in order to stay up in the division.

AFC Bournemouth Team News

Diego Rico is suspended for the game, while Junior Stanislas (knee) is another major injury concern after being ruled out until September. Kyle Taylor is also set to miss the game due to a muscle injury.
