Bournemouth vs West Ham Pundit Predictions- Who will win this GW7 clash?

Both Bournemouth and West Ham will look to bounce back from their respective midweek Cup defeats when they lock horns at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday afternoon. With Arsenal not playing until Monday night, victory for either side will, at least temporarily, see them move into the top four.

The referee for this game is Stuart Attwell, who was also the man in the middle when the Cherries beat the Hammers 2-1 in August 2018. This will however be his first game involving the Irons in the 19/20 season.

With Arthur Masuaku back from suspension, Manuel Pellegrini must decide whether to restore the former to his starting XI, or to persist with Aaron Cresswell, who scored a fine free kick to help seal all three points against Manchester United, and was named in several pundits’ Round 6 Team of the Week.

Here is a look at what various TV and media pundits have predicted for this clash.

Mark Lawrenson: Lawro reckons that home advantage will help Bournemouth and has backed Eddie Howe’s side to edge this clash 2-1.

Charlie Nicholas: The Sky pundit reckons this is the “best ever group” West Ham have had in the Premier League, and says it will be a good game. However adds that both teams cannot be separated and has gone for a 2-2 draw.

Michael Owen: Owen has recommended a West Ham draw no bet for this one, saying that if there’s to be a winner at the Vitality Stadium, it will be Manuel Pellegrini’s men. However says that they must play better than they did in their last fixture on the road against Villa.

Robbie Savage: Savage has tipped the Hammers to run out 2-1 winners against the Cherries.

Stan Collymore: Collymore reckons that Bournemouth will not only win this one, but will also keep a clean sheet. Has tipped the home side to win 2-0.
