David Moyes: 'West Ham United can not afford to lose Javier Hernandez'

"Well, Chicharito, there has been speculation about him but there has been speculation about Andy Carroll, Diafra Sakho - there's been speculation about every man and their dog here", he told reporters after the 1-1 draw. We're working on it and we'll try to get the right players.

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has admitted that the timing of West Ham's equalizer frustrated him following the Cherries 1-1 draw with the Hammers at the London Stadium on Saturday. He made 35 appearances for United in the 2013/14 season, but was restricted to just 12 starts in all and just six in the Premier League as he struggled to get game time. However, he has struggled to readjust to life back in the Premier League and is seemingly still not favoured by David Moyes.

"I thought we probably played our best football since I've taken over", Moyes added.

Manuel Lanzini played Arnautovic through on 28 minutes, but he failed to hit the target before being taken out by Ake, and Lewis Cook was also off target with a curled shot that was inches wide.

Ryan Fraser's slick finish in the 71st minute after former Hammer Junior Stanislas split the home defence with a through ball gave Bournemouth the lead. We grew into the game and scored a great goal from our perspective, and looked a real threat on the counter-attack in the second half. The Hammers equalised from the restart, as substitute Hernandez pounced. Manu is the problem and we hope it isn't serious. You could say it's a concentration issue - I'm not sure.
