West Ham v AFC Bournemouth
August 21st 2016
Kick off 16:00
Live on Sky Sports 1 / Sky Sports 1 HD / Sky Ultra HD
West Ham started their Premier League campaign with a 2-1 defeat at Chelsea last Monday night, as Spain international Diego Costa scored a last-gasp Winner for the Blues.
Despite that defeat, Slaven Bilic’s side will have taken positives from the defeat and the Hammers look to have strengthened their squad this summer. The Hammers had a strong home record last season, losing just one of their last 17 home games at the Boleyn Ground.
The Irons should welcome back playmaker Dimitri Payet to the starting line-up, after he came off the bench against Chelsea.
The Hammers are favourites to record a win in this clash at odds of 21/20 with Marathon Bet.
Bournemouth also started their Premier League campaign with a defeat, suffering a 3-1 home defeat against Manchester United last Sunday. Full-back Adam Smith’s goal was the only bright spot for the Cherries.
The Cherries have brought in a number of new players in the summer and those new signings will take a while to settle this season. The side from Dorset have lost five out of the last six outings in the top-flight, but pulled off a 4-3 victory at West Ham last season.
Eddie Howe’s side are underdogs to repeat that feat from last season in this clash at odds of 29/10 with Marathon Bet.
If you like sitting on the fence then the draw can backed at odds of 45/17 with Marathon Bet.
West Ham under Slaven Bilic have consistently improved and with the extra incentive of christening their new stadium with a win, they should be backed at odds of 21/20 with Marathon Bet to win this clash.
