101 Great Goals’ prediction: West Ham 2-1 Bournemouth
West Ham United are continuing to enjoy their revival under David Moyes following a string of impressive results.
The Hammers, though, must overcome a tricky task of beating Bournemouth who are hoping to follow up their huge win over Arsenal last weekend.
Although, with the scintillating form Marko Arnautovic has found himself in recently, he could prove to be the difference on Saturday.

West Ham vs Bournemouth preview
The Hammers are in really strong form heading into Saturday’s clash, having dropped just two points in their last two games.
They are now up into 11th, five points clear of the bottom three, with their eyes now fixed on the league’s top half.
Bournemouth enjoyed a big result last Sunday as they defeated Arsenal 2-1, to take a huge three points and move four points clear of safety.
The Cherries, like Saturday’s opposition, have enjoyed an upturn in form, also taking seven points from their last three outings.
West Ham: No-stopping Marko Arnautovic
He is a man enjoying some of the best form of his career, as the Austrian has netted five times in his last five appearances.
Under Moyes, Arnautovic has been reborn and recaptured the sort of form he produced at Stoke that forced the Hammers to shell out £20m to acquire his services.
The 28-year-old is undoubtedly a man full of talent, just lacking consistency. Though, in recent week, Arnautovic has very much now added that missing ingredient to his game.
His ferocious form comes just at a pivotal point for the Hammers, with the futures of both Andy Carroll and Javier Hernandez up in the air.
With this goal-scoring duo having their heads tuned, West Ham will be looking to their awesome Austrian to supply the goals.Claim a £100 bet on West Ham vs Bournemouth with Royal Panda
Bournemouth: Callum Wilson’s form
The Cherries have their own man in form: Callum Wilson.
Having missed the start of the season through injury, the 25-year-old has managed to get back in amongst the goals in recent weeks.
Wilson has netted three times, along with one assist, in his last three appearances, proving to be a key figure in Bournemouth’s recent fortunes.
Eddie Howe will be hoping his number nine can produce again on Saturday as they prepare for this tricky trip.
