Bournemouth entertain West Ham hoping to extend an unbeaten Premier League (PL) H2H record spanning back to August 2016. They are in the right form to do so, having attained consecutive 3-1 wins across the last two PL rounds, making this an opportunity to register three consecutive PL wins in a single season for the first time since March 2016. In turn, Bournemouth’s last five PL games have now seen over 2.5 total match goals and both teams score. However, it is the ‘Cherries’ themselves that usually start their goal search early, with four of their 11 PL goals (36.36%) coming inside the first 15 minutes of play.
Visitors West Ham offer a contrasting approach, with eight of their last ten PL matches witnessing under 1.5 first-half total goals. Their efforts to keep it tight early have seen them lose just once in ten PL games, with the ‘Hammers’ managing eight first-half clean sheets during this run, including three in a row this season. Overall, West Ham are unbeaten in four league games ahead of this trip to Dorset, managing three consecutive clean sheets during that run. Even on the road, West Ham are unbeaten in five PL trips, managing four first-half clean sheets.
