David Moyes saw his side’s good run come to an end at Liverpool on Wednesday, but the manner of their second-half performance certainly proved encouraging.
In the grand scheme of things, a narrow defeat at Anfield is hardly fatal to West Ham’s attempts to lift the Premier League, such has been their improvement of late. While they’re still not perfect, they’re well past their rocky start.
Bournemouth, meanwhile, lost at home to Southampton last time out but proved tough to beat under former West Ham midfielder Gary O’Neil.
