|West Ham vs Bournemouth Betting Tips
West Ham United, currently grappling with a four-game winless streak, seeks redemption following a 2-2 draw with Sheffield United. Despite their recent struggles, the Hammers maintain a commendable sixth-placed standing in the Premier League. David Moyes’ men, particularly formidable at home, have kept a clean sheet in their last three league matches at the London Stadium.
In the last 540 minutes of Premier League home football, West Ham has allowed a mere four goals. This defensive resilience is a testament to their steadfastness, especially considering the decimation of their squad by injuries and international call-ups. The Hammers aim to extend this impressive defensive record against a rejuvenated Bournemouth side.

Bournemouth, currently positioned 13th in the table, showcased attacking brilliance in their recent FA Cup tie against Swansea City. Taking inspiration from Liverpool’s attacking playbook, the Cherries demolished their Championship opponents with a ruthless first-half display, securing an 8th win from their last 11 games in all competitions.
However, Bournemouth’s defensive vulnerabilities were exposed in a 4-0 loss to Liverpool, where they conceded as many goals as West Ham did in their last nine home league games. Additionally, injuries to key players, including James Hill and Max Aarons, have added to their defensive woes, presenting an opportunity for West Ham to exploit.
Vladimir Coufal’s suspension and Said Benrahama’s ban pose challenges for West Ham, but the potential return of Mohammed Kudus adds attacking impetus. With uncertainties surrounding Edson Alvarez and key players like Lucas Paqueta and Michail Antonio in the infirmary, Moyes might hand a full debut to Manchester City loanee Kalvin Phillips.
Possible Starting Lineup: Areola; Johnson, Mavropanos, Zouma, Emerson; Phillips, Soucek; Kudus, Ward-Prowse, Cornet; Bowen
Bournemouth faces defensive concerns with injuries to James Hill and Max Aarons. The absence of Tyler Adams and Darren Randolph adds to their woes. The attacking prowess of Solanke, Sinisterra, and Scott will be crucial in challenging West Ham’s resilient defence.
Possible Starting Lineup: Neto; Kelly, Zabarnyi, Senesi, Kerkez; Cook, Christie; Tavernier, Scott, Sinisterra; Solanke
Considering West Ham’s home defensive record and Bournemouth’s recent defensive lapses, we predict a 3-1 victory for West Ham. The return of Bowen and Kudus, coupled with Bournemouth’s defensive vulnerabilities, may prove decisive in West Ham’s favour.
Prediction: West Ham 3-1 Bournemouth
