West Ham to beat Bournemouth

Why West Ham should beat Bournemouth

Ahead of the game, a number of stats have emerged that show why West Ham should pick up the win on Thursday:

  • West Ham are unbeaten in five Premier League games (W3 D2), their longest run within a season since January 2021 (six). However, they have drawn their past two league games, last drawing three in a row in April 2017.
  • Bournemouth have lost their past two Premier League games, going down 3-1 at Tottenham and 4-0 at home to Liverpool. This follows a run of six wins in seven games in which they had conceded just five goals and scored at least twice in every match.
  • Across all teams’ past 10 Premier League games, only Liverpool (24) have picked up more points than West Ham (21).
  • Excluding penalties, only Nottingham Forest (11) have conceded more goals from set-pieces than Bournemouth (nine) in the Premier League this season. West Ham’s James Ward-Prowse has created more chances from set-plays than any other player this term (28).
  • Only Nottingham Forest (seven) have scored more goals from fast breaks in the Premier League this season than West Ham (6).
