West Ham to Win

West Ham were quite unfortunate to leave Anfield empty handed on Wednesday night.

David Moyes’ side spurned two glorious chances to share the spoils against Liverpool, with Jarrod Bowen missing a penalty and Tomas Soucek missing with the goal seemingly at his mercy.

However, it was yet another encouraging display from the Hammers, who have improved considerably in recent weeks.

West Ham had taken seven points from their three games prior to that Liverpool defeat and have won each of their last two home games.

They have a great chance to make that three home wins on the spin against a Bournemouth side going through a resurgence of their own.

Bournemouth responded to their 9-0 mauling at Anfield by going six games unbeaten, taking ten points in the process.

The unbeaten run came to an end with defeat to Southampton midweek, but it has lifted them clear of the relegation zone and given them room to breathe.

Another few defeats before the World Cup will cast them right back into the mix, however, and they could struggle against West Ham on Monday night.

Gianluca Scamacca to Score Anytime

West Ham’s resurgence can partially be attributed to Gianluca Scamacca finding his feet in the Premier League.

Scamacca had failed to score in his first five league appearance before scoring in the win over Wolves at the beginning of October.

The Italian striker has put West Ham ahead in each of their last two home games, scoring the first goal in the win over Wolves before completing the turnaround after West Ham had fallen behind against Fulham.

He has scored six goals in all competitions for the Hammers and is fact becoming their most dangerous player.

Jarrod Bowen to Have Two or More Shots on Target

Like Scamacca, Jarrod Bowen has experienced a relatively slow start to the season, failing to score in his first seven league appearances before finally getting off the mark.

Like Scamacca, Bowen has scored two league goals this season, with the goals also coming in wins over Wolves and Fulham.

Bowen’s penalty miss at Anfield is likely to still be playing on his mind and he will surely be out to make amends on Monday night.

The former Hull winger has attempted 28 shots in 11 appearances this season at a rate of more than 2.5 per game.

It would be surprising if he didn’t at least match that average on Monday considering he has a point to prove. It’s not beyond him to find the target with two of those efforts.

Adam Smith to be Shown a Card

Adam Smith is the only Bournemouth player walking the five-yellow card tightrope at the moment, but the defender may find himself suspended after 90 minutes at the London Stadium.

Smith has been booked four times this season and has averaged the most fouls of all Bournemouth defenders.

He has averaged 1.1 fouls per game this season and finds himself up against a tricky West Ham attack that will ask him plenty of questions.

It wouldn’t be surprising to see him match his season average and, by extension, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him earn a fifth booking of the season on Monday night.
