West Ham v Bournemouth - Managerial Chit-Chat

West Ham v Bournemouth - Managerial Chit-Chat

Can the Hammers follow-up their fine win away to Huddersfield Town last weekend, with a home victory against Bournemouth?

Or will Bournemouth capitalise on their home victory against Arsenal to take another three points?

It`s certainly got the makings of an intriguing fixture this one.

Ahead of the game, both managers have held their pre-match press conferences, David Moyes had, amongst other things, this to say,

'I think what we've got at the moment is momentum. The game against Huddersfield shows we've improved, and we're looking for more again.

'I've set no targets for the players but 40 points was always the magic figure and the sooner you get to it, the better.'

I`m not sure when the season kicked off that our ambition was to ensure we got forty points on the board to avid relegation.

As for the Bournemouth boss, Eddie Howe, he had, amongst other things, this to say,

'We've had to treat the past two results exactly the same way as I don't think there's any point reacting with the highs and lows of results when you're in my position.

'We've been trying to make sure we're as stable as we can be in preparation for this game.

'The mindset has had to change very quickly, as with three games in six days it's a difficult period, there's a lot to think about.'

There is, but I reckon West Ham will take the honours in this one, how about you?
