King bags hat-trick as Bournemouth down West Ham

Arsenal's Theo Walcott applauds fans after the game Hammers handed triple boost

Joshua King's hat-trick, despite missing a first half penalty, guided Eddie Howe's side to victory as West Ham's lacklustre display saw them slip to their second defeat in a row, and without a win in four league matches.

"The defensive system that we put in place did not give me any pleasure", Payet told L'Équipe, as translated by Goal.

With a 5-4-1 in front of our area, I could have all the freedoms in the world, but it was hard to express myself.

Ayew would pull the Hammers level inside the final minutes, with Sam Byram - West Ham's third change of the game - providing the finish, but it would be Bournemouth and King who would have the last laugh.

West Ham's players protested that King was offside when the kick was taken, and that the ball had struck Afobe's arm, but after a long chat with his assistant Madley signalled a goal.

"You could say that I was pissed off, yes".

"I thought that I would not have room for improvement". Claiming he was "going backwards as a player", Payet has effectively hit back at co-owner David Gold who accused the France worldwide of a "betrayal" following the player's refusal to play for West Ham. "For a year and a half, they gave me a great deal and I'll never forget that". I needed another challenge.

"Bournemouth didn't have a good run since that game against Arsenal, which they were winning 3-0 but drew 3-3, but their last game has given them confidence, going to Old Trafford and getting a draw with ten men".

Slaven Bilic intends to use Barcelona's incredible comeback against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League as motivation for his own players facing adversity on the field.

"We are disappointed because first of all when you score two away goals, we expect to get something out of the game, especially when you equalise a few minutes before the end of the game", he said.
