Predicted West Ham United and Bournemouth line-ups

Upton Park

Here are possible teams for the game between West Ham United and Bournemouth this weekend.

To be played on Saturday 22nd August 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Boleyn Ground, London

Odds: West Ham 25/18, Draw 53/21, Bournemouth 23/10

West Ham United boss Slaven Bilic will be keen for his team to make the most of their home advantage against Bournemouth, as they look to react to a defeat at the hands of Leicester.

The Hammers have the home advantage and Bilic knows that his side should be superior in terms of quality as they look to edge key man-for-man battles all over the pitch.

A win and three points for Bilic’s side should be enough to move them into the European places by the end of the weekend.

Bournemouth are currently in the bottom three and still searching for their first three points in the Premier League.

It was always going to be difficult for Eddie Howe’s team in the top flight of English football but they have a gutsy brand of football, which should help them to be competitive in this game.

What’s encouraging is that the side have been beaten just 1-0 in both of their opening games, which shows they have a defensive resilience but they need to start converting their chances.
