Thursday marks the resumption of Premier League action between West Ham United and Bournemouth at the London Stadium. This match will start by 8:30 P.M.

The Cherries will aim to maintain their impressive form after a sensational performance in their most recent F.A. Cup match against Swansea City.

At Bramall Lane, West Ham United and Sheffield United played to a 2-2 tie, preventing West Ham from claiming their first victory of the year. Before that, on January 16, David Moyes’ team’s four-game undefeated streak ended abruptly with a 1-0 F.A. Cup loss to Bristol City.

Following 21 games played, West Ham United have accumulated 35 points, good for sixth position in the Premier League. Tottenham Hotspur are five points ahead of them in the race for a UEFA Europa Conference League qualifying berth. In other news, last Thursday’s 5-0 F.A. Cup fourth-round thrashing of Swansea City at the Vitality Stadium was Bournemouth’s most significant victory.

Now the focus shifts to the Premier League, where Andoni Iraola’s squad is on a two-game losing streak after seven games without a victory.

West Ham and Bournemouth: Previous Games 

Before this streak, West Ham had gone winless in six Premier League meetings vs Bournemouth (three draws, three defeats). However, in their previous four games against Bournemouth, they have drawn one and won three.

Solanke scored a late equalizer to rescue a point for Bournemouth after Bowen put West Ham ahead in a 1-1 draw on the south coast back on MD 1.

The Cherries have had mixed results on their previous visits to West Ham. When they scored, they went undefeated in three Premier League away games against the Hammers (two wins and a draw), but when they failed to score, they lost their past two.

Despite having Kurt Zouma and Benrahma score for the Irons, Bournemouth were hammered 4-0 at the London Stadium in January 2020 and lost 2-0 in the exact match last season.

Probable West Ham Lineup

Areola, Johnson, Zouma, Mavropanos, Emerson; Cornet, Souček, Bowen; Ward-Prowse, Fornals, Ings

Probable Bournemouth Lineup

Neto; Aarons, Zabarnyi, Mepham, Hill; Cook, Christie, Sinisterra, Kluivert, Tavernier; Solanke

Betting tips: West Ham x Bournemouth

Check out our predictions for West Ham vs. Bournemouth for the day.

Prediction 1: West Ham x Bournemouth / Bournemouth Double Chance

With their cup win under their belts, Bournemouth will enter Thursday’s match with an abundance of self-assurance. We think the hosts, who have had trouble getting going since the beginning of the year, will have a tough time overcoming the Cherries, who are currently riding a strong league form streak.

Prediction 2: West Ham x Bournemouth / Sinisterra over 0.5 shot on target

Sinisterra has scored twice, with his most recent goal coming in the Boxing Day victory against Fulham for the Cherries. The Colombian has managed only two shots on goal in his previous five tries. 

Now that Vladimir Coufal is suspended, Sinisterra may have several breakaway chances to score. We are wagering that Sinisterra will have at least a shot on target.

Prediction 3: West Ham x Bournemouth / Over 2.5 goals

Paqueta is West Ham’s primary creative source; therefore, his absence until early March is a significant loss. West Ham should have a potent offense with Bowen, Kudus, and Ward-Prowse scoring. Bournemouth may play forward, making the encounter exciting.
