Ahead of West Ham's weekend clash with Bournemouth, we bring you the best stats.

Eddie Howe's Bournemouth travel to the Boleyn Ground to face West Ham United this weekend, with the Premier League new boys still searching for their first point in the English top flight. 

In the Cherries, the Hammers face a team who have been on the wrong end of a 1-0 scoreline in their first two matches since winning promotion from the Championship - despite showing positive signs.

Saturday's hosts, meanwhile, have enjoyed mixed success this term. After an excellent start to the campaign at Arsenal on game-week one, they fell to defeat against Leicester City during their first home game last weekend. 

But how do Bournemouth and West Ham shape up going into the game statistically? One Darren Randolph stat in particular may worry fans in the capital...

- This will be the first league meeting between West Ham and Bournemouth since April 1990 and only their third overall in league competition.

- Bournemouth have not won any of their previous five competitive meetings with the Hammers (D2 L3).

- The Cherries have given Premier League appearances to 10 different English players in their opening two games of 2015-16; more than any other side.

- Bournemouth have lost their opening two games - only one of the six newly promoted sides to lose their opening three games of a Premier League season has gone on to avoid relegation (Southampton in 2012-13).

- Mark Noble has been fouled 10 times in the opening two match-days of the 2015-16 season; three more times than any other player.

- Andrew Surman has made the most passes in both of his Premier League appearances so far this term and has made the most overall in the top flight after two matches (167).

- Goalkeeper Adrian will miss this match for West Ham following his red card against Leicester - the Spaniard had started each of the last 58 Premier League matches for the Hammers.

- West Ham backup 'keeper Randolph has conceded 16 goals in his last three appearances against Bournemouth, including 12 in two games last term.

- Callum Wilson has had 19 touches in the opposition box so far this season; only Alexis Sanchez (20) has had more.

- Since the start of 2014-15, Callum Wilson has won more penalties alone (11) than 92 of the 93 other clubs (excluding Bournemouth themselves) to have played in the top four tiers since then (the exception being Swindon - 14).
