West Ham Utd 1-0 Bournemouth


Filed: Sunday, 21st August 2016
By: Staff Writer


West Ham marked their first ever Premier League fixture at the Olympic Stadium with a win - albeit a late one.

Michail Antonio's 84th minute header was enough to secure all three points against a lethargic Bournemouth side, who ended the game with only ten man following Harry Arter's dismissal for a second bookable offence.

And that red card - which occurred 15 minutes from time with the score at 0-0 -
proved to be the turning point as Slaven Bilic was rewarded for throwing caution to the wind by introducing Jonathan Calleri and Ashley Fletcher for the closing stages.
