Darwin Nunez’ lone goal inside the opening 22 minutes handed West Ham their sixth league-defeat of the season on Wednesday. If not for the palms of Alisson Becker and the big toe of James Milner, the Hammers could have come away with a point from Anfield. West Ham’s last league-victory came against Fulham (3-1) on October 9, courtesy of goals from Jarrod Bowen, Gianluca Scamacca and Michail Antonio. It was David Moyes’ side’s third league-win of the campaign. A victory against the Cherries on Monday could help the Hammers move to the mid-table.
Bournemouth, on the other hand, lost to Southampton courtesy of Che Adams’ 9th-minute strike. It was O’Neil’s side’s fourth league-defeat of the season. Prior to that, Bournemouth shared the spoils against Fulham last Saturday courtesy of goals from Dominic Solanke and Jefferson Lerma. Meanwhile, the Cherries’ last victory came against Leicester City on October 8. After Patson Daka put the Foxes ahead inside the opening 10 minutes, the Cherries came out all guns blazing in the second half and netted twice through Philip Billings (68) and Ryan Christie (71).
West Ham playmaker Lucas Paqueta will miss the match on Monday because of a shoulder injury sustained against Southampton last weekend, while Nayef Aguerd is also sidelined with an injury alongside Maxwel Cornet and Craig Dawson. Antonio is likely to spearhead the attack alongside Scamacca. As for Bournemouth, David Brooks and Lloyd Kelly are occupying the medical room. Billing and Solanke are expected to partner up front, with Cook and Lerma pulling the strings in the midfield.
