West Ham's Mark Noble is targeting points against Bournemouth
West Ham lost their season opener against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Monday night, having seemingly snatched a point when James Collins lashed home after the Blues failed to clear a corner, only for Diego Costa to strike to make sure Antonio Conte would get three points from his Premier League bow.
And Noble knows that whilst they may feel hard done by after the Chelsea result, the Hammers need to start to pick up points soon, with a great chance to do so at their new stadium's Premier League debut.

"The games are coming thick and fast, had we got a point at Chelsea it would have been fantastic.
“Now we have a huge week ahead, first away in Romania and the very first Premier League game at the new stadium.
"The game against Bournemouth is going to be great, the atmosphere is going to be fantastic. Again, it’s another hard game but we have to pick up points.”

Before West Ham grace the turf at the London Stadium in the Premier League, they face a tricky trip to Romania on Thursday as they look to qualify for the Europa League proper alongside Manchester United and Southampton.
Astra Giurgiu are the last club that stand in their way of making it into the group stages of the Europa League, with the Hammers having already overcome Slovenian side Domzale.
