West Ham will hope to shine in front of their own supporters once again as they host Bournemouth in the Premier League on Thursday night.
The match will be shown live on TNT Sports 2 in the UK.
The game will be played at the London Stadium with a kick-off time of 19:30 GMT on Thursday 1st February 2024.
David Moyes' West Ham will look to snap a four-game winless run when they play host to Bournemouth.
The Hammers have only lost once during that run, but they were dumped out of the FA Cup by Bristol City in an embarrassing defeat in the third round of the FA Cup.
While that was far from ideal, their form at home has been impressive of late. They are unbeaten in nine in all competitions, while they have kept four clean sheets in their previous five at home.
Bournemouth arrive on the back of a 5-0 win over Swansea in the FA Cup, but West Ham's forwards should have too much class for Andoni Iraola's side.
Jarrod Bowen is back fit, while Kudus has returned from the Africa Cup of Nations, and the pair can at least help the Hammers grab a share of the points.
Over 2.5 goals @ 8/13
Both teams should put it all on the line as they look to return to winning ways in the Premier League.
The Hammers were held to a 2-2 draw by Sheffield United at Bramall Lane last time out, while Bournemouth were hammered 4-0 by Liverpool.
While Bournemouth have certainly improved under Iraola, they have now conceded seven goals in two matches, but before that, they scored at least two goals in seven consecutive league matches.
West Ham are unbeaten in five in the Premier League, and they have netted nine goals in their previous five at home.
Kudus has returned from AFCON, and he will look to carry on his recent good form after Ghana's disappointing exit.
The forward scored a brace against Egypt for his country, meaning he now has six goals in his last seven matches for club and country.
In his last 34 matches, including his previous spell at Ajax, Kudus has found the net in half of the matches, and he should be able to score past Bournemouth's leaky defence.
Right-back Vladimir Coufal will miss out due to suspension after he picked up two yellow cards against Sheffield United, while Said Benrahma is still serving his ban after a red card against Bristol City.
Nayef Aguerd is still on international duty, while Edson Alvarez is a doubt with a calf problem. Manchester City loanee Kalvin Phillips could make his debut, while Michail Antonio and Lucas Paqueta remain on the treatment table.
Bournemouth's win over Swansea came at a price, as they lost defender James Hill to injury, with Iraola suggesting it was a high ankle sprain.
Iraola is already without Max Aarons, while fellow full-back Adam Smith will need to pass a fitness test to feature. Ryan Fredericks is still unavailable due to a calf injury, and he is joined in the medical department by Tyler Adams and Darren Randolph.
Dango Ouattara is also unlikely to feature as he makes his way back to the UK after Burkina Faso's elimination from AFCON.
West Ham are unbeaten in the last three meetings between the two clubs, with the two teams playing out a 1-1 draw in August.
While the Hammers are winless in four, they are unbeaten in nine in all competitions at home, and they will hope to shine in front of their own supporters once again.
After failing to win any of their first five away matches in the Premier League, Bournemouth have since won four of their previous five games on the road, scoring 12 goals in the process.
