Venue: Olympic Stadium (London).
West Ham United will play their first Premier League game in their new home London Stadium against AFC Bournemouth on Sunday.
The Hammers boss Slaven Bilic was angered with way their opening game defeat to Chelsea, they lost in the 88th minute. Diego Costa broke the hammers heart as he scored few minutes to final whistle after he should have been sent off.
Slaven Bilic will be eager to get off to a winning start in their first game in the stadium, to keep the fans smiling.
Bournemouth are currently rocking the bottom of Premier League table, with an opening day 3-1 defeat to Red Devils at Vitality Stadium. Mata, Rooney and Ibrahimovic all got their names on the score sheet, also Adam Smith got a consolation goal for his side.
Eddie Howe’s side now have another difficult game as they will be playing the Hammers on their new stadium. Howe’s side needs to put in a much better performance than their last game if they have to get something out of this game.

West Ham vs Bournemouth: Prediction
Both teams lost their opening game, they both will want to grab a win to make up for the last game. The Hammers were unfortunate in their first game but they look brighter than their opponent. Bournemouth gave too much respect to Man United in their opening game, giving away much possession and misplacing passes.
I predict a win for the Hammers on the new ground
