PREM: Bournemouth v West Ham preview

Bournemouth v West Ham preview

Tyrone Mings will serve the first game of his five-match ban as Bournemouth host West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday.

The defender was charged by the FA after he appeared to stamp on the head of Zlatan Ibrahimovic during a 1-1 draw with Manchester United last weekend and will not be available for selection until the middle of April.

It is a decision that both the club and player have expressed their disappointment about as the Cherries look to pull themselves clear of a relegation battle.

West Ham are winless in their last three Premier League outings but they do have a good record when facing Bournemouth, having never lost on their three previous trips to the Vitality Stadium.

Victory will see them break into the top 10, with Stoke and Southampton not in action this weekend.

Bournemouth captain Simon Francis is making progress after a hamstring injury but could miss out again, while goalkeeper Adam Federici and striker Callum Wilson are continuing their rehabilitation from knee injuries.

Andrew Surman will also be unavailable after picking up a red card at Old Trafford.

Slaven Bilic will welcome back Michail Antonio for the trip to the south coast after his suspension, while striker Andy Carroll is also available despite requiring stitches after clashing with Victor Moses against Chelsea last weekend.

Winston Reid, who limped off against the Blues with a leg injury, is also in contention for the game.
