Bournemouth will face West Ham United in the Premier League on Tuesday evening.

Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that Andy Carroll will score for West Ham United against Bournemouth.

West Ham will take on Bournemouth away from home at the Vitality Stadium in the Premier League on Tuesday evening.

“The Hammers have conceded just twice in their last six PL games, but are without a win in their last five on the road in the PL,” Owen has written on Betvictor.com.

“Andy Carroll has scored in his last two PL games but has never found the back of the net in three successive PL games; he might be the difference between the sides in what should be a fascinating clash.”

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Andy Carroll to score anytime at 5/2.”

Carroll has scored three goals and created five chances in 12 Premier League appearances for West Ham so far this season.

The England international striker has a pass accuracy of 63% and a shot accuracy of 61%, and has won 42 headers, two dribbles and one tackle.

West Ham are sixth in the Premier League table at the moment with 32 points from 20 matches. Slaven Bilic’s side are four points behind Tottenham Hotspur, who are currently fourth in the standings and occupy the final Champions League spot.

Meanwhile, Bournemouth fans find themselves 16th in the Premier League table at the moment with 21 points from 20 matches, four points above the relegation zone. The Cherries are doing better than many expected them to and are playing good football as well.

While West Ham will be favourites to win on Tuesday evening, an early goal for Eddie Howe’s side could make a huge difference.
