Premier League 2018: West Ham vs Bournemouth Line up: West Ham was dismantled by Liverpool in their opening match of the new Premier League season but have the chance to put that behind them at home to Bournemouth today.
Manuel Pellegrini named five of his summer signings in the side that was overwhelmed by Jurgen Klopp’s side at Anfield, with Andriy Yarmolenko also coming off the bench for his Premier League debut with the damage already done.
While the result certainly won’t provoke any sort of knee-jerk reaction from Manuel Pellegrini, the visit of the Cherries could see Issa Diop and deadline day recruits Carlos Sanchez and Lucas Perez brought into the fold.
Eddie Howe’s side meanwhile secured a 2-0 win over Cardiff City in their opener last week. Jefferson Lerma, the Colombia international who became Bournemouth’s record signing this summer, is still awaiting his first appearance for his new side.
