West Ham are on a high after reaching the Conference League semi-finals in midweek, but they can’t afford to be distracted when they travel to Bournemouth for a relegation six-pointer.
The Cherries boosted their survival hopes with four wins in their last six games, including a dramatic last-minute 3-2 victory over Spurs last weekend, moving them six points clear of the drop zone.
West Ham are only four points above the bottom three, but have enjoyed a morale-boosting week after coming from two goals down to hold Premier League leaders Arsenal to a 2-2 draw before thumping Gent 4-1 to progress in Europe.
The Hammers won the first meeting of the season 2-0 in London, with Kurt Zouma and Said Benrahma on the scoresheet.
Kick-off is at 2.00pm BST. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League wherever you are.

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Premier League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
