Bournemouth travels to East London this weekend to face West Ham. They head there one place above The Hammers, with both sides having played 11 matches.
West Ham has plenty of omens working in their favor for this one. The Irons have been sensational on Monday Night Football in the EPL. In the English top flight, they have been victorious in their last five MNF games.
After a dreadful run at home where they lost six matches in a row, David Moyes’ side has turned a corner. They have won their last two home fixtures 2-0 and 3-1 against Wolves and Fulham respectively.
They have never won three games in a row by two goals or more in their history at the London Stadium.

Starting XI Prediction
The Hammers have a couple of key players out, but we suspect they will still have a fairly strong side against The Cherries.
Here is how we see them lining up against Bournemouth.
DEF- Coufal, Zouma, Ogbonna, Cresswell
MID- Rice, Soucek, Fornals
ATT- Benrahma, Scamacca, Bowen
West Ham United is a far better side than Bournemouth. The Cherries have improved exponentially since their 9-0 humbling at Anfield, but we think this is where it falls apart for them.
West Ham will get back on the winners’ list here, quite comfortably. West Ham 3-0.
