David Gold says Darren Randolph will play for West Ham today

West Ham Upton Park

West Ham United will face Bournemouth in the Premier League this afternoon.

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has stated on social networking site Twitter that goalkeeper Darren Randolph will feature today.

The Hammers will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they take on Bournemouth at home.

First-choice goalkeeper Adrian is suspended for the game at the Boleyn Ground, and Gold has said that summer signing Randolph will start in his place for his Premier League debut for the London club.

The 28-year-old moved to West Ham on a free transfer earlier this summer after leaving Championship outfit Birmingham City at the end of the 2014-15 campaign.

West Ham will head into this afternoon’s match against Bournemouth as favourites.

However, Slaven Bilic’s side will have to step up their game if they want to register a comfortable win against the newly-promoted Cherries.

The Hammers will head into the match on the back of a 2-1 defeat to Leicester City at the Boleyn Ground.
