Bournemouth v West Ham

West Ham have lost 22 of their 38 Premier League away games over the last two seasons, the most of any side not to be relegated in either of those campaigns.

They have also lost their last four Premier League away games, though their last win on the road was at Bournemouth in April (4-0). They’ve not lost more consecutively away from home since June 2020 (7).

Sadly the club has lost their opening game of the season more often than any other side in Premier League history (15), while David Moyes has lost such games more often than any other manager (10).

The Hammers haven’t drawn their opening game in any of their last 25 Premier League campaigns (W11 L14) since a goalless draw with Leeds in 1994-95.

This is the sixth consecutive season that Bournemouth have started their league campaign with a home game (W3 D2), beating Aston Villa 2-0 on their return to the Premier League last term.

West Ham have scored in both halves of the match in each of their last four Premier League meetings with Bournemouth. They’ve never done this in five consecutive games against an opponent before, while only against Leicester (Jan 2020 to Feb 2022) and Norwich (Feb 2016 to May 2022) have they scored in nine consecutive halves before.

West Ham have never lost against Bournemouth in the Premier League with David Moyes in charge (W3 D2), with their four defeats against them coming under Slaven Bilic (2) and Manuel Pellegrini (2).

    Made me smile this one….. my immediate reaction was So what? hahaha

    My all-time favourite ‘So what?’ was the stat we used to read or hear just prior to every visit to Anfield. Something like “West Ham haven’t won away at Liverpool since The Beatles were number one when Geoff Hurst scored the winner!”
    Expect it to read “West Ham have only won once at Anfield in 60 years” this season.

    John Motson’s commentaries – bless him – used to be full of quotes like this. They gave him something extra to say, but never really mattered.

    In West Ham’s case it’s how we perform at Bournemouth tomorrow that only counts…..
