Game changer Dimi Payet drove the Irons to an incredible victory after they had fallen behind to an early Cherries goal.
And by the end of the evening Slav’s men had extended their unbeaten run to the longest since 2000 and are now within a point of the Champion League places.
Andy Carroll left the action in the 11th minute after going down following a fine run and cross down the right. He walked off seemingly in no discomfort but that he should depart so early doesn’t feel good.
It hadn’t looked good in the first half after Adrian had failed to collect a speculative Harry Artur shot from distance which was enough to give the Cherries a half time lead after their keeper Boruc had made great saves from a deflected Jelavic effort and a Payet piledriver.
But the home team were never at the races in the second period as dynamc Dimi showed himself a class above anybody else on the pitch.
He smashed home an amazing free kick with all the dip and swerve in the world in the 67th minute after Antonio had been brought down.
Seven minutes later he wriggled down the dead ball line to set up an easy chance for Valencia to score and after leaving the action watched the Ecuador international belt home his own brilliant free kick six minutes from time.
It was a night to celebrate as our star players returned to top form and even the sharp edge of the Carroll injury was blunted knowing that Diafra Sakho is due back by the beginning of February according to the boss.
West Ham are looking a very good team indeed.
