West Ham United head into Saturday’s Premier League clash with Bournemouth without any new injury concerns.

The Hammers were soundly beaten by an impressive Liverpool side last weekend and the home support will demand a much-improved performance and result against the Cherrie this weekend.

It will be interesting to see if Pellegrini sticks with the same starting XI that took to the pitch at Anfield or makes changes – but the West Ham boss has the same contingent available for selection.

“It’s the same three players who have the long injuries; Andy Carroll, Winston Reid and Manuel Lanzini. All the other players are OK,” the Hammers boss told the club’s official website.

Pellegrini has a number of key decisions to make, especially in the spine of his side where there could potentially be changes at centre-half and in the heart of the team’s midfield.

West Ham will hope Marko Arnautovic has shaken off a knock to feature as the furthest man forward, or Javier Hernandez could be used as an alternative.

The Hammers fans will be relatively unimpressed by the new players that started against Liverpool and will get the chance to run the rule over a handful of fresh faces in the first game at the London Stadium in 2018-19.
