Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by a thrilling 4-1 win over Huddersfield Town, West Ham United take on Bournemouth at their London Stadium on Matchday 24. The Hammers proved their worth in the triumph over the Terriers, but the capital need to keep on raising their form if they are to avoid relegation to the Championship. Marko Arnautovic has been producing scintillating showings of late and all eyes will be on the Austria international when West Ham face Bournemouth. The Cherries did well to beat Arsenal at home in their last league fixture, but considering that they are not regarded as good travelers, we predict the Hammers will pick up all three points from Saturday’s football match. Bournemouth are on a five-game winless run on the road in the English elite division and, taking everything into account, the visitors are unlikely to spoil West Ham United’s party at London Stadium.
Highlighted Player (Winston Reid):
Despite playing for Denmark youth teams in the past, Winston Reid decided to represent New Zealand at senior level. The prolific defender spent his youth career at Danish clubs Sonderborg and Midtjylland and he made his first appearance for the Midtjylland first team in the Royal League tournament against Valerenga. Winston Reid was making progress year by year and he was on West Ham’s radar during the 2009/2010 season. In the summer of 2010 (August) Reid signed a three-year deal with the Hammers and he made his Premier League debut in a 3-0 defeat to Aston Villa on August 14, 2010. However, the New Zealand defender made no more than 12 appearances for West Ham United in his first season for the capital club. To make things even worse for him, at the end of the 2010/2011 Premier League campaign the Hammers dropped to the Championship. You should bear in mind that Winston Reid played three games for New Zealand at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa and he scored a late equalizer in a 1-1 draw with Slovakia.
Highlighted Team (Bournemouth):
Bournemouth are a professional football club that was formed back in 1890. The Cherries secured promotion to the Premier League in the 2015/2016 season, with the team making it to the English top flight for the first time ever. Bournemouth play their home games at Dean Court and the capacity of the stadium is 11,469. The Cherries enjoyed a very successful season on their Premier League debut, with the team beating the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United in the national championship. Glenn Murray scored the winner for Bournemouth in the 1-0 win over the capital club at Stamford Bridge and that is probably the greatest victory in the club’s history. Bournemouth have been participating in the FA Cup since 1913, but they have yet to win the trophy in the prestigious competition. It has to be noted that the club’s original name Boscombe Athletic Football Club was changed to Bournemouth back in 1923 as the club owners wanted the Cherries to be more representative of the district.
