      HALF TIME! Bournemouth head into the break with a 1-0 advantage over West Ham, courtesy of a long-range strike from Arter.

      The Hammers arrive at Dean Court off the back of consecutive top-flight victories, courtesy of wins over both Liverpool and Southampton recently. The visitors, however, have failed to take three points in their last three Premier League games. Contrast that with the Cherries, who have taken five poi

      Hello and welcome to live coverage of one of tonight's Premier League fixtures, as West Ham travel to Bournemouth with the intention of keeping themselves in the race for European football. Slaven Bilic's side are on an unbeaten run of eight games, with Eddie Howe's personnel looking at extending th
    • 1'
      We are underway in the first half! Bournemouth are unbeaten in their last three games on home soil, with West Ham needing to keep their momentum up if they are to stake a realistic claim for Europa League football.
    • 2'
      Noble goes close! West Ham immediately break forward with intent, with Valencia able to chase down a poor pass back from Francis into Boruc! The Bournemouth goalkeeper half clears his lines, with the West Ham captain angling a first-time shot over the bar from the rebound!
    • 4'
      Stanislas gives the ball away on the edge of his own penalty area, but a quick pass into the feet of Valencia comes to nothing for the visitors. The Cherries don't look particularly settled, with Howe's men making some uncharacteristic mistakes while in possession.
    • 6'
      West Ham enjoy a calm spell of possession, before a long pass is launched in the direction of Carroll. The former Newcastle striker's flick ons have been inaccurate thus far, but both Francis and Cook are looking to be struggling aerially against their imposing opponent. Bilic will be pleased with h
    • 8'
      Valencia has seen plenty of the ball in the opening minutes, with the away side looking to try and force the issue. The Ecuador international has been crowded out on the edge of a congested penalty area thus far, but is constantly willing to run at and ask questions of his man.
    • 10'
      Obiang and Payet link up brilliantly, before the latter slides a lovely pass in behind enemy lines for Valencia to chase! The West Ham forward is caught narrowly offside, before continuing and firing a terrible shot straight at Boruc. The hosts aren't looking in good shape early on. Moments later, C
    • 11'
      On second glance, it was Cook who managed to clear from under his own crossbar, there! West Ham are rightly aggrieved that they didn't get a corner. There's a break in play, as Carroll goes down with what appears to be a muscle problem.
    • 13'
      Daniels and Stanislas look to combine down the left-hand side, but the Bournemouth duo haven't had any real joy thus far. Carroll heads down the tunnel and will be unable to continue, with the hosts momentarily having the numerical advantage against Bilic's side.
    • 14'
      Arter and Stanislas link up on the edge of the penalty area, but the Iatter's attempted through ball towards Afobe is cut out. Bournemouth are finally looking to be finding their feet in this contest, following a very shaky start indeed.
    • 15'
      SI N. Jelavić SO A. Carroll
    • 15'
      Jelavic is quickly readied and thrown into the fray, with Carroll limping off and unable to continue due to a muscle problem. That could be another few weeks on the sidelines for the former Liverpool striker.
    • 16'
      Afobe hasn't been given any service in the opening minutes of his debut, with the ex-Wolves striker unable to do anything but chase lost causes. West Ham suddenly need to settle this game back down, with Carroll's injury appearing to have shaken them.
    • 17'
      G H. Arter Assist A. Carroll
    • 17'
      Surman slips a simple pass infield to his midfield teammate, but Arter does the rest!
    • 17'
      GOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! ARTER GIVES THE HOSTS THE LEAD! After receiving the ball around 25 yards from goal, with Irishman jinks onto his right foot and lets fly! His awkward shot bounces just beyond an unsighted Adrian and the crowd goes wild!
    • 19'
      BIG CHANCE FOR AFOBE! Bournemouth work a corner short, with a cross eventually whipped in from the right-hand side with some real swing! The debutant rises well and above Ogbonna, but can only divert his headed attempt up and over the crossbar!
    • 21'
      After a terrible first five minutes, suddenly Bournemouth find themselves a goal ahead and well on top! Adrian is forced into his first save of the evening, after Daniels was released brilliantly down the left flank by Afobe! The left-back shoots with power, but West Ham's shot-stopper is equal to i
    • 23'
      West Ham are trying to retain possession and take the sting out of the contest, but Bilic's men are now the team to be making all of the mistakes. An attempted pass back towards Adrian has to be lashed away in hurried fashion, as Afobe continues to lead the line and press high.
    • 25'
      Valencia is released down the right-hand side, but the Ecuadorian forward is once again caught a few yards offside. West Ham have only been able to generate any kind of danger through the ex-Emelec man, especially since Carroll has taken his leave. After five minutes of mayhem, the Hammers have mana
    • 27'
      Payet tries to slide a cute pass in behind Cook for Jelavic to chase, but the two aren't quite on the same wavelength! The France international's attempted ball instead zips out of play for a goal kick. That's the closest that West Ham have got to equalising since Carroll limped to the treatment tab
    • 29'
      Bournemouth have really had a spring in their step since breaking the deadlock, with Howe's men moving the ball with confidence. Smith and Ritchie combine down the right-hand side, before a cross from the former is blocked well by Noble. Adrian gathers up the scraps.
    • 31'
      The opening half an hour has had a real ebb and flow about it, with both sides having their chance to dominate and force the issue. Stanislas dribbles down the left flank, before cutting back inside and making tracks towards the periphery of the box. Unfortunately for the wide man, against his forme
    • 33'
      Stanislas manages to break in behind enemy lines, with the Englishman sprinting into the penalty area on the left-hand side. Fortunately for the Hammers, Tomkins recovers brilliantly to outmuscle the Cherries' winger. Moments later, Afobe is slid into the box, but the former Arsenal man is unable to
    • 35'
      With around 10 minutes remaining until the break, Bournemouth might just end up regretting some missed chances come the end of the game. Afobe has had two great opportunities to double the hosts' lead, with Daniels perhaps able to do better with a chance from the left flank.
    • 37'
      Valencia manages to win a flick on, but Cook steps in ahead of Jelavic to ensure that West Ham continue to be caged in their own half. Howe's men are strutting their stuff, with the visitors having little option but to sit back and weather the storm. Arter tries to scamper down the left flank, but V
    • 38'
      Great save from Boruc! The former Celtic goalkeeper has to be very alert to deny a goal-bound deflection off Cook, following a cross-cum-shot from Jelavic! The resulting corner is whipped in from the right, but Tomkins can only hook a volleyed flick over the crossbar!
    • 40'
      Only five minutes are left for West Ham to see out, with Bilic probably wanting the half-time whistle to come as soon as possible. Gosling goes on a driving run, before trying to slip a pass into Afobe, but the debutant is muscled off the ball by Ogbonna! The Bournemouth striker goes down heavily, b
    • 42'
      Afobe is back in the action and moving easily, which is fantastic news for Howe and company. The hosts try and break at pace down the right-hand side, but Smith is unable to take down a lofted pass in his stride. Bournemouth are desperately looking for their second of the night.
    • 44'
      Valencia is the target of a long ball from Collins, but Cook rises above the Ecuador international to defuse the situation. Moments later, Payet goes on a driving run, but the Frenchman is dispossessed as he shapes to shoot.
    • 45'
      GREAT SAVE FROM BORUC! The Poland international does well once again! Payet goes on a driving run, after Surman was robbed in the midfield third, but the ex-Marseille midfielder is unable to beat the Bournemouth shot-stopper! A strong right wrist tips the effort over the crossbar!
    • 46'
      We are back underway at the Vitality Stadium! Bournemouth have the lead, but West Ham have shown some dangerous signs of fighting back. Payet in particular has looked as though he might have a say this evening.
    • 48'
      Ritchie goes down on the edge of his own penalty area, after suffering from a slight knock, but the ex-Swindon man is quickly back to his feet. West Ham whip an early corner delivery in moments later, but the ball sails over the danger zone. Antonio then threatens after jinking infield from the left
    • 50'
      SI J. Iturbe SO A. Carroll
    • 50'
      After suffering from the aforementioned knock, Ritchie is forced off the field of play. Iturbe gets the chance to make his debut, however, with the ex-Roma winger coming into the game as a result.
    • 52'
      Arter goes down heavily, after catching an arm to the face from Obiang, but the Republic of Ireland international is quickly back in the fray after brief treatment. West Ham are managing to see more possession at the moment, but can't quite find an equaliser. Valencia is released by a lovely through
    • 54'
      Gosling tries his luck from the left-hand side, but a deflection off Collins takes the ball looping into the arms of Adrian. West Ham counter in an attempt to respond, but the move ends in Boruc claiming the ball easily. The Bournemouth goalkeeper hasn't had a save to make since the restart.
    • 56'
      Arter unleashes another strike from range, but the opening goalscorer can only fire a low drive into Collins' midriff. Howe's men are looking to play on the break at present, with West Ham trying to impose themselves in this second half. Antonio hasn't seen as much service, but Valencia is still a t
    • 58'
      Payet is released down the left-hand side, but the Frenchman's attempted cross is headed away from danger by Francis! West Ham keep the pressure on, with Bilic's men enjoying the lion's share of possession at the moment. Another delivery into the box looks for Valencia, but this time Cook is on hand
    • 60'
      Noble makes an unorthodox challenge on the periphery of the penalty area, with the Englishman able to poke a touch clear of the danger area. Bournemouth maintain their pressure, but a cross in from Stanislas is headed half clear by Collins! The rebound is caught on the half volley by Arter, but his
    • 61'
      SI C. Jenkinson SO A. Carroll
    • 61'
      Jenkinson replaces Tomkins for the away side, with the former Arsenal right-back perhaps offering a little more offensively as the Hammers look to get back on level terms.
    • 61'
      Valencia fires over! The former Pachucha striker lets fly from 20 yards out, but can only send the ball arrowing into the stands behind Boruc's goal. Meanwhile, there's some movement on the visiting bench, with it appearing that Bilic is about to ring another change.
    • 63'
      West Ham continue to see more of the ball, with Afobe left to chase in an isolated position up top. Bournemouth are sat back in their banks of four, with Boruc being very well protected indeed. A long pass is pumped forward in search of Valencia, but Cook heads the danger clear.
    • 65'
      Iturbe manages to win the ball back high up the left-hand side, but the Argentina international is let down by Daniels when he attempts to play a neat one-two. The Hammers respond with their own foray down the left, but a delivery from Cresswell is blocked simply.
    • 66'
      Adrian makes an easy save look difficult, after yet another long-range effort from Arter, with the Spaniard choosing not to hold a hammerstrike from the Irishman. West Ham gallivant upfield on the counter, with Smith then giving away a free kick in a dangerous area.
    • 66'
      Smith picks up a yellow card for the hosts, after making a cynical foul on the periphery of his own box.
    • 67'
      G D. Payet Assist A. Carroll
    • 67'
      GOOOOOOOOOOAL! WHAT A HIT FROM PAYET! The France international takes aim from 25 yards out, before curling a dream of a free kick off the underside of the crossbar and into the back of the net! Inspiration from the ex-Marseille midfielder!
    • 68'
      Payet picks up a yellow card for his celebrations, after racing over to the travelling support to mingle with West Ham's fans!
    • 70'
      Suddenly, the ball is back in Bournemouth's court. West Ham have looked dangerous since the restart, with their pressure finally telling. Narrowly under 20 minutes are on the clock for either side to take the much-needed three points.
    • 72'
      SI L. Grabban SO A. Carroll
    • 72'
      After running himself into the ground, Afobe is pulled off by Howe. Despite missing two good chances, the ex-Arsenal forward has put in some miles tonight. Grabban is introduced up top.
    • 72'
      Jenkinson manages to win a corner from Daniels, but the resulting delivery is lashed away by Afobe. A second delivery is put into the box and flicked on by Antonio, but Jelavic is unabel to meet the flick on. Suddenly, the Cherries are looking rather shaky!
    • 74'
      G E. Valencia Assist A. Carroll
    • 74'
      After scoring once, the France international carves out the second! Payet gets to the right byline, before chopping back a lovely delivery from Valencia to turn home.
    • 74'
      GOOOOOOOOOOAL! WEST HAM COMPLETE THE TURNAROUND! The Ecuador international is picked out on the penalty spot, before lashing a first-time finish emphatically into the ceiling of the net! Boruc had no chance and the visitors are 2-1 up!
    • 74'
      Arter opens play out to the right-hand side, with Smith trying to slide a pass in behind Antonio for Stanislas to chase. Fortunately for the visitors, the ex-Forest midfielder makes a timely interception. This contest is becoming very stretched indeed, with tired legs definitely on show.
    • 76'
      Bournemouth have to try and fight their way back from one goal behind now, with Howe needing to mastermind quite the comeback. West Ham might have their first away win in quite some time, here, with the Hammers still on course to stay in the top six.
    • 78'
      SI A. Song SO A. Carroll
    • 78'
      Payet is sacrificed by Bilic, with the Frenchman having quite the influence tonight. Song comes into the midfield to help shut up shop.
    • 80'
      SI G. Murray SO A. Carroll
    • 80'
      The Cherries appear to be throwing caution to the wind, with Murray coming into the game in place of Arter.
    • 81'
      We're into the final 10 minutes at Vitality Stadium, with Bournemouth claiming for a penalty! Stanislas shoots from the edge of the box, with the ex-Burnley winger believing that Ogbonna handled the ball! It did strike the former Juventus defender, but he didn't know much about it!
    • 83'
      Jelavic rises well to flick a header out wide to Antonio, with Gosling sliding into a poor tackle on the ex-Forest winger. West Ham don't have their set-piece taker on the field anymore, however.
    • 84'
      G E. Valencia Assist A. Carroll
    • 84'
      GOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! WHAT A HIT FROM VALENCIA! The Ecuador international tries his luck from the aforementioned free kick, hammering a powerful effort goalwards! It dips and bamboozles Boruc, with the ball arrowing inside the near post! It looked like the Bournemouth goalkeeper could have got there, but
    • 86'
      Ogbonna hits his own post! The former Juve defender slices a clearance onto the near upright, with Murray lurking dangerously behind him! The resulting corner is punched clear by Adrian, with the Spaniard rising well amidst traffic.
    • 88'
      Collins lifts a long ball out to Antonio on the left-hand side, with the West Ham winger happy to shield a deflected pass out for a throw in. Bilic's men are content to wind down the clock, as this three points will be most welcome indeed.
    • 90'
      Daniels accidentally lets the ball run out of play on the left-hand side, which sums up Bournemouth's second-half performance. There are four minutes of stoppage time.
