Bournemouth v West Ham United

Joseph Nalos turnaround Replay 4Q – MPBL: Muntinlupa vs Zamboanga

AFC Bournemouth will be looking to extend their unbeaten run when they host in-form West Ham at Dean Court on Tuesday.

The Cherries have lost just once in their last five outings in all competitions and are on a two-match unbeaten run, with one draw and one win.

The win came in a 2-1 triumph over Birmingham City in their last fixture in the FA Cup third round on Saturday.

In the league, though, Bournemouth are languishing down in 16th position in the standings with 21 points from their first 20 games this season.

Manager Eddie Howe is facing a race against time to get new signing Juan Iturbe registered in time to feature.

Fellow new arrival Benik Afobe is expected to be involved against the Hammers.

West Ham, meanwhile, are in excellent form having not lost in their last eight outings, with three wins from their last three in all competitions.

Their impressive run of results sees the Hammers in sixth position in the standings, four points off the top four.

Enner Valencia and Cheikhou Kouyate are both nursing minor knocks and will be assessed ahead of the game.

Manuel Lanzini is ruled out and faces up to six weeks on the sidelines with a recurrence of a thigh injury.
