The visitors are in sixth place in the league and could potentially leapfrog Manchester United should they take all three points in this match. Both sides managed to win in their recent FA Cup third round clashes and both will look to carry that momentum over into the Premier League.
A win for the home team could see Bournemouth climb as high as thirteenth position, a respectable mid-table position for the newly promoted side.
Bournemouth have looked impressive in the Premier League in their most recent matches and Eddie Howe will be looking for another three points against a Hammers side which has struggled on their travels.
Eddie Howe fancies his chances, telling the BBC this morning:
I am full of admiration for Slaven Bilic and the job he has done at West Ham this season.
“I think they are a really competitive side so we know we are in for a battle but if we can replicate our good form, then we have got a good chance
Other than a 2-0 loss against league leaders Arsenal, the home side have managed hard fought draws against teams such as Leicester and Crystal Palace.
Bournemouth were even able to pull off an impressive 2-1 home win against Manchester United.
Against West Ham, the home side will be looking forward to the debut of new signings Benik Afobe from Wolves and Juan Iturbe who is on loan, with the option of a permanent move, from Roma.
The Cherries further boosted their squad with the arrival of Benik Afobe from Wolves.
He is strong, you just look at him and know he is going to be a handful, but he has good technique.
“I am excited by that because I think there is a lot of potential in him and he is a really good age, and I think there are a lot of good years ahead of him.
However, Bournemouth will have to make do without Wilson, Elphick and Grabel who all have prohibitive knee complaints.
West Ham have won three matches in a row and will look to extend that run away at Bournemouth. Most recently, the Hammers managed to win their third round FA Cup tie at home to Wolves.
West Ham have also put together back to back Premier League wins against Liverpool and Southampton. Victor Moses has made his return to the training ground but is not yet deemed fit enough for match action so will not play.
Valencia and Kouyate will both be touch and go up until kickoff due to minor complaints which may or may not prevent them from playing.
Andy Carroll will be looking to score for his third match in a row and represents the most likely source of goals for the away side.
Bournemouth are favoured to win this one but it is more than possible that West Ham will leave with all three points.
Both sides have played some good football so far this year and Tuesday night’s game should be an interesting contest.
