West Ham v Bournemouth - Early Team-News

After the Hammers struggled to see off the challenge of Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup, relying on a late goal to do so, the support will be hoping the side play better against Bournemouth this Saturday.

Ahead of the Premier League fixture, we`ve cobbled together some early team-news to keep you entertained.

Starting with West Ham United:

David Moyes will have to make do without the services of Andy Carroll who faces yet another spell on the side-lines after suffering a fractured ankle.

On the positive side though, Javier Hernandez is available again after recovering from illness.

Also available for selection is Cheikhou Kouyate who also missed the aforementioned cup replay against Shrewsbury Town.

Winston Reid will miss this fixture courtesy of a groin problem whilst the duo of Declan Rice and Andre Ayew will face late fitness test to decide whether they are available for selection.

Continuing with our opponents, Bournemouth:

Eddie Howe will be hoping that the duo of Joshua King and the former Hammer Junior Stanislas, will have recovered from hamstring injuries to play.

The Bournemouth boss is also expected to recall several players who he rested only to see his side dumped out of the FA Cup by the League One side, Wigan, in a cup replay in midweek.
