Jermain Defoe Could Be Back For Bournemouth To Face West Ham

AFC Bournemouth vs West Ham Preview Sides with same aims look for resurgence

But Callum Wilson salvaged a point for the Cherries to earn a vital point.

Arnautovic took his tally to five goals in as many games with his late double, the first of which came after Asmir Begovic's slip when attempting a regulation clearance.

After their Boxing Day assignment, the Cherries will lock horns with Everton, Brighton, Arsenal, West Ham (again), Chelsea, Stoke, Huddersfield, Newcastle and Leicester City - a run of games which will be pivotal in their battle to stay up.

Referee Bobby Madley held a lengthy discussion with his assistant before awarding the goal, leaving Wilson relieved that the call went his way.

Bournemouth moved ahead in the 56th minute when Lewis Cook's cross evaded everyone apart from Nathan Ake, who sidefooted the ball past Adrian.




"The offside could be close, the linesman gives it as an offside goal but the worst thing is the Bournemouth player puts it in with the top of his arm so it should be ruled out for that". The referee really should have just given offside and we would not be talking about that. "A total mixture of emotions and I felt like the game was ours at 2-1, we had so many chances to make it three and put it to bed but we didn't take them", he told Sky Sports.

Chris Wood missed Burnley's 2-2 draw at Manchester United due to injury while All Whites captain Winston Reid was relegated to the bench for West Ham United's English Premier League visit to Bournemouth.

The Austria forward then slotted home after Begovic could only redirect Javier Hernandez's effort, as West Ham looked set to steal the win.

The result leaves West Ham way down in 17th place, even though a correct refereeing decision in the eyes of Madley would see Moyes' side on 20 points and way up the table in 13th.
