    • KICK OFF
    • 45'
      TREMENDOUS STOP! Wilson sprints forward into the area and three defenders rush towards him, leaving Gradel wide open to the left for a pass. The striker rolls it across, but Randolph shows great reflexes to deny the Ivorian international!
    • 90'
      THEY'VE DONE IT! Bournemouth have won their first-ever match in the Premier League!
    • 90'
      SI A. Smith SO S. Francis
    • 90'
      A. Smith enters the game and replaces M. Ritchie.
    • 90'
      Blocked! A clever effort from Kouyate who gets inside the area and tries to power a strike through the mess of bodies, but sees it turned aside before Payet over-runs the rebound. There will be a final change here from Eddie Howe as he looks to run down the clock.
    • 45'
      Ambitious! Bournemouth enjoy a good spell of possession in the final third. It comes to Ritchie, who has all the time and space in the world. Bilic is screaming at his players from the touchline, but they aren't made to pay as the midfielder's strike sails wide of the far post.
    • 90'
      Maiga is putting in some excellent work in up top. He's putting Bournemouth under immense pressure and giving their defenders little time on the ball to clear the danger. His teammates need to follow his lead!

      FULL TIME: WEST HAM 3-4 BOURNEMOUTH. Callum Wilson's hat-trick provides the Cherries with a first-ever Premier League victory in a seven-goal thriller at the Boleyn.
    • 0'
      HALF TIME: WEST HAM 0-2 BOURNEMOUTH. The boos rain down as the players make their way off for the break. Delight for the Cherries as their first and second Premier League goals have given them a commanding lead at half time, as they look to convert this effort into a first top flight victory.
    • 0'
      "I'm forever blowing bubbles," a Boleyn staple echoes through the ground as the players take their place on the pitch ahead of the start of the match. Can we expect the West Ham team which beat Arsenal on opening weekend, or will we see Bournemouth steal their first Premier League points?
    • 0'
      Eddie Howe will have to wait one more week for the highly-anticipated debut of Christian Atsu who is still not match fit. The Cherries boss names an unchanged XI following their impressive performance against Liverpool, meaning Sylvain Distin and Tyrone Mings still await their debuts.
    • 0'
      Adrian's red card, picked up in stoppage time against Leicester, means he will miss his first West Ham game in close to 20 months. Darren Randolph deputizes in goal. Reece Oxford misses out through injury, paving the way for summer recruit Pedro Obiang to earn his first Premier League start. Mauro Z

      Bournemouth are quickly coming to learn how vital it is to capitalize on your chances in the Premier League. They played well in their opener against Villa, and gave it the old-college-try at Liverpool – though both times left empty handed. They had good periods of play in each match, but failing to
    • 0'
      West Ham were brilliant in the season-opening victory over Arsenal, playing tight and compact, while being clinical in converting their chances. Then came week two, where they were placed in Arsenal’s shoes, tasked with forcing the game – and it didn’t go nearly as well. These aren’t the days of old

      Hello football fans around the world and welcome to London! We’re at the Boleyn this afternoon as West Ham attempt to get their first points at home this season against a Bournemouth side still searching for their first Premier League point and goal. I am Alex Moretto and I will be your in-game host
    • 1'
      And we're off!
    • 3'
      Encouraging start for the new boys. Joshua King does well to drift out wide to get on the ball and makes quick work of Pedro Obiang, though his final ball is lacking as it runs out the other side of the area.
    • 4'
      Another promising move from the visitors, but Winston Reid blocks Callum Wilson's shot behind for a corner. The ensuing delivery is met by the late arriving Simon Francis, though he's unable to direct a header towards goal.
    • 6'
      West Ham have settled in now as they begin to control possession and dictate the tempo in midfield. Diafra Sakho sends a brilliant back-heel into the path of Kevin Nolan, but Steve Cook is tight on his hip to prevent a way through and guide the ball behind for a corner.
    • 7'
      IT'S IN BUT WON'T COUNT! Irony a plenty in this one, as Reid gets on the end of the set piece and heads home. It's called back, however, for a push on Tommy Elphick, the same player who saw a goal from a corner disallowed on Monday at Anfield.
    • 9'
      STAT ATTACK: Adrian’s red card against Leicester has left him suspended for this match, ending a run of 58-consecutive appearances for West Ham since New Year’s Day 2014.

    • 11'
      The assist came from S. Francis.
    • 11'
      BOURNEMOUTH HAVE THEIR FIRST EVER PREMIER LEAGUE GOAL! And it's Callum Wilson who gets it! A moment of history for the Cherries to savor! Dreadful defending by Aaron Cresswell is punished dearly by Francis who strips him of the ball and delivers the perfect cross for the striker to head home. Wonder
    • 13'
      INCREDIBLE GOALKEEPING! Looking for a quick response, the Hammers turn to the creativity of Payet. The Frenchman sends a wonderful through ball into the path of Sakho, but Artur Boruc rushes off his line to collect at the last second. That was exceptional timing!
    • 15'
      Bournemouth appear buoyed by their first Premier League goal. If they weren't convinced they could compete at this level before, they certainly will be now. They're playing with plenty of confidence in possession, really taking the game to the hosts as they look to break quickly into attack.
    • 17'
      No one there! Payet delivers from a corner and the ball drops straight in the middle of the penalty area, atop the six-yard box. Everyone was jostling for possession and no one though to attack the ball! Pressure stays on and Cresswell sends another cross in from the left this time, but Kouyate is u
    • 19'
      The tide begins to shift as West Ham push forward in search of an equalizer. Sakho makes a good turn down the left-hand side, but a clearance sends the ball well out of harm's way. In fact, Wilson gives chase as he has the last defender beaten clean to the ball. Randolph comes way out of his area, h
    • 21'
      Vital recovery! Jenkinson slips, gifting the ball to Gradel to break. The right-back shows impressive pace to chase down the winger, however, and is able to stick a leg in to block what looked like a real chance from the shot.
    • 23'
      It's a sweltering day in London, and as a result the teams are given a short break to head over to the touchline and grab a drink of water. Slaven Bilic is quite animated as he gathers his team to give some vital pointers as they attempt to chase this deficit.
    • 25'
      Inches too high for Wilson! Ritchie and Francis link-up well on the right flank. The former sends a flat, inviting cross into the area, but it sails just over the head of the striker. Jenkinson then gifts the ball to Surman as he scuffs his clearance, but it doesn't prove costly as Ritchie's effort
    • 27'
      Bournemouth are passing the ball way better than West Ham at the moment. Daniels sends a brilliant, penetrating ball through for King. The striker takes it well but can't get the beating of Ogbonna who stands tall to break up the move.
    • 28'
      G C. Wilson Assist S. Francis
    • 28'
      BOURNEMOUTH IN DREAMLAND! Absolutely horrendous again from Cresswell who is having a shocker in defence! He tries to play the ball back to his keeper from the top of the area, not spotting Wilson at all as he sends the ball straight into the striker's pass and he makes no mistake in blasting a clini
    • 30'
      SIDE-NETTING! The boos rain down at the Boleyn as Wilson works a clever one-two with King, before drilling a shot wide of the near post. He's never scored a senior hat-trick before, but what a story it would be if his first provided Bournemouth with their first Premier League victory in club history
    • 32'
      Not to take anything away from the Cherries, but West Ham are all over the place in defence! They're lacking in concentration and some absolutely mindless decisions are allowing Bournemouth to apply relentless pressure. These fans are not at all happy.
    • 34'
      STAT ATTACK: Bournemouth ended last season on a six-match unbeaten run away from home in the Championship (W4, D2). They conceded just three times over that span while scoring 13 themselves.
    • 35'
      SI J. Tomkins SO S. Francis
    • 35'
      Enough is enough says Slaven Bilic who makes a change to his back-line. Ogbonna gives way to James Tomkins, but the Italian appears to be a scapegoat here. He hasn't played great, but Jenkinson and Cresswell have been the greater liabilities in defence.
    • 37'
      Worrying moments for the Cherries, the first time I've said that in the first half. Max Gradel goes down after appearing to pull something. The medical staff comes out to attend to him, but hopefully for their sake it's nothing more than a cramp.
    • 39'
      West Ham desperately need something to take with them into the break. Be it a goal or a good spell in attack, they need a reason to believe they can erase this deficit, because at the moment things are looking all-too similar to their defeat against Leicester a week ago.
    • 41'
      JUST ELUDES SAKHO! Tremendous ball from Payet over the head of Cook for Sakho to chase. Boruc rushes off his line but runs past the ball accidentally. It catches Sakho off guard, however, as he can't control and knocks the ball behind for a goal kick, saving the goalkeeper's blushes.
    • 43'
      Jenkinson's downfalls have been overshadowed this afternoon by the play of Cresswell, but he's been far too careless with the ball. I've lost count of the times he's given the ball away and put his team under unnecessary pressure. He's trying to overcompensate now and it's only creating further prob
    • 45'
      Good tackle from Ritchie! Obiang is teed up for a shot atop the area, but as he arrives to meet the ball, the Bournemouth midfielder slides in to turn the effort aside - this as the board goes up to indicate four minutes of stoppage time.
    • 46'
      SI M. Jarvis SO S. Francis
    • 46'
      M. Jarvis enters the game and replaces K. Nolan.
    • 46'
      Here we go again! Matt Jarvis has come on to start this second half and should provide some more pace and direct play in attack as he replaces Nolan.
    • 47'
      WEST HAM AWARDED A PENALTY! Boruc fails to convincingly punch clear from a Payet free kick. The ball comes to Noble and he darts across the top of the area, before King commits a careless foul! The midfielder was running away from goal, what a silly challenge that was!
    • 48'
      NO MISTAKE FROM MR. RELIABLE! Noble converts from the spot and it's game on at the Boleyn!
    • 50'
      Eddie Howe readies a change as he attempts to solidify his side in midfield. tt looks like Marc Pugh who will be coming on. West Ham sense blood and Bournemouth have to shore things up as to not let this lead slip from their grasp.
    • 51'
      SI M. Pugh SO S. Francis
    • 51'
      M. Pugh enters the game and replaces J. King.

      G C. Kouyaté Assist S. Francis
    • 53'
      WEST HAM LEVEL! WHAT A TURNAROUND! Dreadful defending from Cook as he lets a long throw get past him at the near post. Sakho's strike from a tight angle is stopped but Kouyate is there to send the rebound into the ceiling of the net. This crowd has come to life!
    • 55'
      This stadium has come to life once again! It's nothing short of a disaster for Bournemouth who appeared well on their way to a first Premier League victory no less than 10 minutes ago!
    • 57'
      The Cherries have to get their rhythm back. This West Ham defence has proved to be vulnerable and there for the taking. If Bournemouth can collect themselves and apply some pressure there could still be three points available for them. Gradel tries his luck from distance, but his effort curls wide o
    • 59'
      STAT ATTACK: Darren Randolph spent last season with Birmingham in the Championship and conceded 12 goals in his two league games against Bournemouth.
    • 61'
      A poor giveaway by Reid allows Bournemouth to keep the pressure on. Pugh sends a cross in from the left, but Ritchie is unable to get anything on his header before the hosts finally clear their lines. This is anyone's game at the moment!
    • 63'
      GREAT SAVE! Pugh finds a good pocket of space atop the penalty area as he latches onto a pass from Surman. He drives a strike at goal, but Randolph gets down extremely well to turn the effort aside!
    • 65'
      Jarvis drives down the left flank as he takes on two defenders with real intent. He cuts back well, before playing it through for Cresswell on the overlap, but the wing-back can't do much right on the day as he sends a cross straight at Boruc.
    • 66'
      G M. Pugh Assist S. Francis
    • 66'
      Assist by M. Gradel.
    • 66'
      SPECTACULAR FROM PUGH TO RESTORE THE CHERRIES' LEAD! Gradel wins the ball in the middle of the pitch before finding the substitute on the left in acres of space, left alone by Jenkinson. He cuts into the area and the right-back tries to recover, but commits too early as he slides in, allowing Pugh t
    • 68'
      This is turning into an all-time classic! Bournemouth can sense it now! What great resiliency they have shown. It would have been easy for them to get discouraged after seeing their two-goal lead evaporate, but they've battled back in a big way here.
    • 70'
      The crowd is sent into an absolute uproar as Jonathan Moss brings a halt to play for another water break. It surely will take all the tempo out of the match, just as the pace was picking up yet again. This has come at a terrible time for the Hammers.
    • 72'
      STAT ATTACK: West Ham won the last meeting between the two teams in the League Cup, a match current manager Eddie Howe started for the Cherries in a 2-0 defeat in October 1999.
    • 73'
      SI M. Maïga SO S. Francis
    • 73'
      M. Maïga comes on for D. Sakho.
    • 74'
      Sakho, who has been the main man in attack for West Ham, is taken off here. Surely it must be an injury that's cutting his afternoon short, otherwise this is a very puzzling switch from Bilic, as he's replaced by Modibo Maiga.
    • 75'
      A. Boruc is cautioned by the referee.
    • 76'
      There's a lengthy stoppage as Obiang remains down here, having been hurt already in this second half. The medical staff comes out to attend to him but this is precious time running off the clock for West Ham.
    • 78'
      GRADEL WINS A PENALTY! Following a West Ham corner, Bournemouth break quickly on the counter. Gradel sprints past Jenkinson, who eventually catches up with him and tugs him down in the area. No question of a penalty there, but what else will the referee do here?
    • 79'
      IT'S A RED! The referee doesn't have much choice as Jenkinson was the last-man back and denied a clear goal scoring opportunity. That puts an end to an abysmal day for the right-back.
    • 79'
      WILSON GETS HIS HAT-TRICK! It's his first as a professional at the senior level, and it may come on the most historic of days for the club!
    • 81'
      STAT ATTACK: Callum Wilson has won more penalties since the start of last season (11) than any other player. Out of the top four divisions of English football, only Swindon Town have earned more as a collective team over that time (14).
    • 82'
      G M. Maïga Assist S. Francis
    • 82'
      The assist came from A. Cresswell.
    • 82'
      MAIGA CUTS THE LEAD IN HALF! Great turn from the substitute who sprints past Francis and gets Boruc to commit early before rolling in the simplest of finishes in to give the Hammers hope yet again!
    • 84'
      Game on yet again here! West Ham down a goal and a man, but Maiga has restored belief! Can they overcome the odds and spoil Bournemouth's party? We're in for one heck of a finish at the Boleyn!
    • 85'
      SI D. Gosling SO S. Francis
    • 85'
      M. Gradel is done for the day. D. Gosling is his replacement.
    • 86'
      You have to earn your points in the top flight and Bournemouth are finding that out the hard way here. Twice they've had two-goal leads today. They already let one of them slip, surely they can't do it twice in the same half?
    • 88'
      West Ham are enjoying the bulk of possession here as Bournemouth commit men back in numbers. They're struggling to pick out a threatening pass and find a way through, however, as time is starting to run out for them.
    • 90'
      There will be SIX minutes added on at the end of this first half, just as Wilson wins the Cherries a corner.
