Saturday sees a match of two clubs going in opposite directions. Manager Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth had a great start to the season, but can’t find the win ledger of late, while Manuel Pellegrini’s West Ham United started out like crap, but now look pipped for Europa League contention with a possible seventh place finish in the Premier League table.
West Ham United
The Hammers are accomplishing all of this despite the swirling rumours of goal talisman Marko Arnautovic leaving to take the money in the Chinese league. West Ham have also had major injury concerns, with Winston Reid, Manuel Lanzini, Javier Hernandez and (of course) Andy Carroll chief among them.
How are West Ham doing it? The brightest spots has been a resurgent season from Scottish marksman Robert Snodgrass, and an excellent young player in Irish international midfielder/centre back Declan Rice. The latter scored the first goal of his West Ham career last week versus Arsenal in a London derby, and he looks like a future captain once team icon Mark Noble calls it quits.
Interesting these two clubs should meet, as there has been lots of heat about the Cherries’ goal man Callum Wilson joining West Ham as a possible Arnautovic replacement. Howe and the Bournemouth board are asking for some serious cash for Wilson, though, so we’ll see if the deal goals through with stingy Irons owners David Gold and David Sullivan.
At their best, Howe has his squad playing an open, attacking brand of football; they must get back to that if they are to top West Ham this weekend. It can be possible, too, because the Hammers have often had defensive frailties. The speed and counterattacking verve of Bournemouth could expose West Ham.
Free West Ham vs Bournemouth EPL Prediction:
West Ham is the superior club on paper, but we know that games aren’t played there. The Irons have the offense to victimize average Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmer Begovic, but they have to watch they don’t leave themselves too vulnerable on the back end.
4* Free EPL Betting Pick: West Ham to win
I could see a few goals being scored in this one, as both clubs are prone to ship a few occasionally. Someone like Wilson or Jackson Lerma could pot for Bournemouth, while keep an eye out for Arnautovic, Samir Nasri and Michail Antonio for the visitors.
