    • 45'
      Bournemouth are able to enjoy a rare long spell on the ball as they patiently work it from one flank to the other. Ibe eventually finds Wilson, who then spins and finds Smith, but the latter's attempted cross into the penalty area is well blocked by Masuaku. Ibe is there to pick up the ball once aga
    • 90'
      Golden opportunity for Calleri! A Bournemouth attack breaks down and West Ham immediately fly forward on a blisteringly quick counter-attack. Noble sets up Calleri and the Argentine flies towards the visitors' penalty area, but, with only Boruc to beat to confirm the victory, the Argentine ends up f

      In the end, West Ham just had enough to get past Bournemouth and start life at the London Stadium with a narrow 1-0 win, but they were made to work hard by the Cherries. In truth, it wasn't the best of games, with both sides looking tentative and lacking the intensity needed to find an opening in fr

      West Ham have enjoyed the vast majority of possession and have arguably been the better of the two sides thus far, but it doesn't quite seem to be working for them inside the final third of the pitch. Tore has looked lively down the right but his end product has been lacking, whilst, over on the lef

      A Callum Wilson hat-trick helped guide his side to a 4-3 thumping of West Ham almost exactly a year ago today, and the striker, fully fit once again after spending eight months out injured, will be looking to replicate that excellent display this afternoon.

      As for Bournemouth, they were the only team to lose by a two-goal margin on the opening day of the season after they were beaten 3-1 by Manchester United in a tough game at the Vitality Stadium. It was always going to be a difficult ask for the Cherries, but they now have a chance to bounce back wit

      A rare goal for James Collins with just 13 minutes left to play looked as if it had salvaged a point for West Ham in their opening game against Chelsea, but the Blues fought back and broke Hammers hearts with a Diego Costa winner in the 89th minute. Further disappointment came with the news that the

      They may have already christened it with a comfortable 3-0 victory at home to Domzale, but today marks West Ham’s first Premier League game in their new home.

      And we're off! Bournemouth get us underway, attacking from right to left.
    • 3'
      Bournemouth embark on a good start to the game as they move the ball around well deep inside the West Ham half of the pitch. It's sent out to Fraser on the left flank, and the winger tries to cut inside quickly before curling a cross into the penalty area. However, Byram is there to stop the pass fr
    • 5'
      A half-hearted clearance from Collins can only find Fraser, who immediately darts down the left wing before teeing up Wilson. The striker initially looks to be offside but, despite Adrian's protests, the linesman's flag isn't raised. He tries to cut inside but is unable to find a way past Byram, who
    • 7'
      Chance for Tore! Antonio muscles his way down the left flank before finding himself crowded out by Bournemouth shirts, but he's able to spin and find Masuaku in a good position just behind him. The left-back takes a quick touch before swinging a dangerous cross into the penalty area, where it bounce
    • 7'
      A thumping lofted pass is blasted up the pitch and allows Antonio to try and hit Bournemouth on the counter. He darts into the visitors' half of the pitch and puts Francis under good pressure on the edge of the penalty area, but, unlike last weekend against Manchester United, the defender is just ab

      Reid pushes towards the halfway line before chipping a pass up to Masuaku. The full-back is just about able to get the ball under control before turning and finding Noble, but the captain's pass forward is poor and fails to find Valencia. West Ham are quickly able to regain possession, however, befo
    • 11'
      Good move by West Ham! The hosts increase the tempo of their attacks slightly and start to put Bournemouth under more pressure. Tore and Kouyate link up well on the edge of the visitors' penalty area before the latter pokes a lovely pass into the path of Noble over on the right of the box, but the m

      Kouyate is caught by Surman in the middle of the pitch, resulting in a free-kick for West Ham that they decide to thump up towards the Bournemouth penalty area.

      A half-hearted Bournemouth attack breaks down, allowing West Ham to fly forward on a swift counter-attack. Noble immediately launches a lofted pass forward that almost finds Antonio before bouncing down into the path of Tore, but the Turkish isn't quite quick enough and is beaten to the loose ball b
    • 17'
      Good passing by Bournemouth sets up Ibe, who does well to skip past Masuaku deep down the right flank before curling a dangerous cross into the West Ham penalty area. It's well hit and is sent into a great area, but there's nobody there to meet it and Adrian is able to cut out the danger comfortably
    • 19'
      West Ham break through the middle of the pitch before winning themselves a free-kick midway inside the Bournemouth half. The hosts send plenty of bodies forward for the set-piece, which is whipped in by Tore, but his attempted cross is poor and fails to find a teammate before easily being dealt with

      Noble does well to break down an attempted Bournemouth attack before kick-starting a West Ham counter. He works the ball over to the left wing, where it finds Antonio, who immediately lifts a looping cross into the penalty area. It misses Valencia before flying over to Byram on the right-hand side o

      Tore continues to make a nuisance of himself down the right flank before cutting inside and heading over to the edge of the penalty area, where he's brought crashing to the ground by a clumsy sliding challenge from Daniels. The Turkish winger steps up and unleashes a shot from the set-piece, but it'

      Masuaku wins back the ball for West Ham deep down the left wing and immediately kick-starts a quick counter-attack. The ball is worked out to Tore, who cuts inside from the right before sending a lovely through-ball into the path of Kouyate, and the midfielder is just about able to chip a cross over
    • 27'
      Cook charges into Valencia and clashes with the Ecuadorian forward once again, leaving him in a heap on the floor and in quite a lot of discomfort. With several players out injured at the moment, Bilic won't want to have to make an early change, especially up front where West Ham are already far too
    • 29'
      After a few moments receiving medical treatment on the pitch, Valencia makes his way off and play resumes once again. Bournemouth immediately try to push forward through the middle of the pitch but lose the ball cheaply thanks to good defending from Reid. Antonio then tries to skip past Smith over o

      Another attempted Bournemouth attacking move comes to an end on the halfway line, and West Ham once again try to break away on a counter-attack down the right wing.

      West Ham continue to work the ball around nicely, with Kouyate and Noble doing well in the middle of the pitch.

    • 33'
      Kouyate breaks down the right flank before trying to curl a cross into the penalty area, but it's stopped by the arm of Arter, who earns himself a yellow card and gives away a free-kick in a very dangerous position. Tore sends it in low towards Collins, but the centre-back ends up tripping his marke

      Noble holds up the ball well deep down the right wing before spinning and finding Tore, who had made a good run towards the byline.

    • 38'
      West Ham lose the ball deep inside the Bournemouth half of the pitch, allowing the visitors to try and break quickly down the left wing.

      Valencia goes close! The Ecuadorian is starting to grow into the game and is beginning to find far more joy inside the final third of the pitch.

      Tore tries to break away on another quick attack down the right wing, but he finds his path blocked and is forced into cutting inside before finding Antonio. The winger is in a pocket of space and tries to fire a quick shot, but he's immediately put under pressure and is unable to do so.
    • 43'
      Wilson does well to get himself into an advanced position down the left flank before sending a dangerous pass into the middle of the penalty area that Nordtveit is forced into blasting out for a rare Bournemouth corner. Fraser, who started the game well before fading slightly, steps up and tries to

      Fraser gives away a needless free-kick midway down the right wing, and Noble decides to send it flying into the Bournemouth penalty area. It finds Collins, who then nods it on to Antonio, but the winger's attempted header is poor and Boruc is able to watch it sail comfortably over the top of the cro

    • 47'
      Bournemouth quickly break down the left wing and earn themselves a corner, which is then swung into a dangerous area inside the West Ham box. Adrian flaps at the ball but can only send it looping up into the air, but Byram is just about able to thump it away from danger before King can make contact
    • 49'
      Bournemouth have started the second half with far more intensity than they ended the first, and it's caused West Ham a few problems so far.

      Fraser breaks down the left wing on a great run before being clumsily tripped over by Tore, who gives away a free-kick in a dangerous position as a result.

      What a mistake by Ibe! King picks up the ball in the middle of the pitch and threads a lovely pass into the right-hand side of the West Ham penalty area, where it finds Ibe. The youngster has a golden opportunity to shoot but instead tries to square the ball over to Wilson, but his pass is easily cu
    • 53'
      Excellent save by Adrian! Bournemouth have started the second half brilliantly and are finding far too much space deep inside the West Ham half of the pitch. King, who was almost completely anonymous in the first period, once again picks up the ball just outside of the penalty area before unleashing
    • 55'
      Tore charges through the middle of the pitch before finding Noble, who spins past two players and finds the Turkish winger once again. The ball is then worked around quickly as West Ham try to set up Masuaku down the left wing, but the full-back's first touch is poor and gifts possession back to Bou
    • 57'
      Antonio is pushed to the ground by Francis, and West Ham are awarded a free-kick over on the left wing. It's taken short and worked back to Reid, who then thumps a lofted pass up towards Valencia, but it's just about cut out by Francis on the edge of the Bournemouth penalty area to deny the striker
    • 58'
      Two attempted Bournemouth counter-attacks break down, and West Ham immediately try to make the visitors pay. Kouyate muscles his way through the middle of the pitch and over to the left wing, where he tries to take on Smith, but he goes down under a challenge from the full-back. The Senegalese midfi
    • 59'
      Tore goes close! West Ham have increased the tempo of their attacks and it's now they who find themselves on the front foot. Antonio charges down the left-hand side of the Bournemouth box before lifting a great cross over to the far post, where it finds Tore, but the Turkish winger's volleyed shot e
    • 61'
      West Ham continue piling into the Bournemouth half of the pitch as they try to find an opening goal. Noble picks up the ball in the middle of the pitch and immediately plays it into the feet of Valencia, but the striker is quickly muscled off the ball by Cook after a heavy touch lets him down.

    • 65'
      Bournemouth string together a good series of passes as they work their way towards the West Ham penalty area. The ball eventually finds it way to Ibe, who controls the ball well on the right-hand side of the box before cutting inside and firing a low shot towards goal. It's slightly underhit, howeve
    • 66'
      Calleri darts down the left wing and does well to keep the ball in play before spinning past Smith and finding Masuaku. The full-back is in a pocket of space and tries to chip a deft cross into the left-hand side of the Bournemouth box, but it's completely mishit and sails harmlessly out of play for
    • 68'
      Noble charges into Ibe and clumsily brings the young winger crashing to the ground, resulting in a free-kick for Bournemouth in a dangerous position over on the right flank.

      A lofted pass is flung forward and finds Wilson on the right-hand side of the West Ham penalty area, and the striker does well to control the ball before holding it up on the edge of the box.

    • 72'
      After increasing in tempo for five or 10 minutes, the game seems to have slowed down once again, with both sides failing to find much in front of goal. Bournemouth are arguably on the front foot at the moment thanks to good movement from Wilson inside the final third of the pitch, but, bar King's ef

      Great chance for Antonio! Calleri picks up the ball just outside of the Bournemouth penalty area and immediately chips a great cross over to the far post, where it finds Antonio.

      GOAL! West Ham have finally scored the first goal of the game! Antonio bursts down the right wing before firing a low cross into the middle of the penalty area, but it's poorly hit and rolls out to the opposite flank, where it's picked up by Tore.

      West Ham have made their last change of the game, and, unsurprisingly, it's a defensive one, with Obiang coming to take the place of Tore.
    • 90'
      The fourth official has indicated that there will be four minutes of added time.
    • 90'
      Obiang immediately receives a yellow card after flying into a reckless challenge in the middle of the pitch, which results in a free-kick for Bournemouth in an advantageous position. It's whipped into the box by Surman and almost finds Cook, but Reid is there to clear the danger at the vital moment.
    • HALF TIME
    • 45'
      The corner eventually comes in and is fired towards the near post, but it's poorly hit and fails to beat the first man before the referee brings an end to what has been a slightly disappointing first half.

      Reid really isn't happy with the linesman's decision to award Bournemouth a corner, and he earns himself a yellow card after arguing slightly too vociferously.
