Bournemouth vs West Ham predicted lineups and news

On Saturday we will be able to enjoy an exciting Bournemouth vs West Ham head-to-head which will take place at the Vitality Stadium at 20:00.

Team News: Bournemouth

The Poppies have made some changes to the squad to improve on last season’s performance. One of the most important signings was Hamed Junior Traore, the attacking midfielder who arrived from Sasuolo for 26 million euros.

The midfield will be well reinforced, as Alex Scott joined from Bristol City for 23 million euros. Both wings will be reinforced with the arrival of Milos Kerkez from AZ Alkmaar and Max Aarons from Norwich. Some players left the team after the end of their contracts. The only sale made by the institution is that of Bean Pearson to Stoke City.

Bournemouth won three of the five friendly matches they played and lost the other two. On the first day of English football, they will have their first real test.

Bournemouth Predicted Lineup: 4-2-3-1

Neto – Anthony, Sensei, Zabarnyi, Kerkez – Cook, Rothwell – Brooks, Billing, Ouattara – Solanke

Team News: West Ham

The Hammers played six friendly matches in the preseason although they started with three victories, the only one that represented a real challenge was against Tottenham. Even so, coach David Moyes was left with some doubts because he lost the last two games and with a result that was not very pleasant.

The team has suffered some important departures, the main one being that of the English pivot Declan Rice, who was in the eyes of other English teams, but finally signed with Arsenal, which paid 116 million euros.

Another important departure was that of striker Gianluca Scamacca and midfielder Nikola Vlasic. So far, the only important signing was the Mexican Edson Álvarez, who joined the team from Ajax for 38 million euros.

West Ham Predicted Lineup: 4-3-3

Fabianski – Coufal, Zouma, Ogbonna, Emerson – Paqueta, Soucek, Downes – Bowen, Antonio, Benrahma

The Brazilian player is in the sights of the reigning Premier League champion. Manchester City made an offer of 80 million which was rejected by the Hammers. The Londoners have no intention of letting the player go for less than 100 million euros.

Although it seems crazy, in the past we have already seen Pep Guardiola’s team pay a large amount to have the players they want. They recently paid 80 for central defender Josko Gvardiol, so paying 100 for Paqueta would not be outlandish. Unless there is a last-minute offer, which meets West Ham’s demands, Paqueta will be in the Bournemouth vs West Ham lineup this Saturday.
