West Ham team news: Hernandez available for trip to Bournemouth

West Ham United will be looking to build on their impressive win against Arsenal when they travel to AFC Bournemouth on Saturday.

The Hammers travel to the Vitality Stadium on the back of a 1-0 victory against The Gunners as they continue to climb the Premier League table.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side have managed to turn things around from a poor opening to the campaign as they start to challenge for seventh.

And, it appears the Chilean has been handed an encouraging boost ahead of their clash with The Cherries.

According to the club’s official website, Javier Hernandez is available and in contention to feature for West Ham.

The Mexico international striker has been out with hamstring and back injuries for the past month, however, he is now fit to return to the squad.

Pellegrini will also be happy that he has no other concerns heading into the game and will be able to choose from the same players that were available for their win against Arsenal.

The Verdict:

Hernandez’s return to the squad will come as a timely boost for Pellegrini and West Ham as they look to make it back-to-back wins.

With all the doubts currently surrounding Marko Arnautovic and his future, the Mexican could be thrown straight into the starting XI for the clash against Bournemouth.

West Ham will want to take the momentum from the Arsenal win with them to the south coast as they look to try and take hold of seventh place in the Premier League.
