West Ham manager Bilic backs struggling Snodgrass

Chelsea’s Victor Moses is challenged by Mark Noble of West Ham at the Olympic Stadium Hammers handed triple boost

Bournemouth started the game in a strong fashion and earned an early penalty, which Josh King conspired to miss to let West Ham off the hook and the Cherries were punished soon when Michail Antonio gave the away side the lead in the tenth minute.

Former West Ham attacking midfielder Dimitri Payet says he left in January because he was "bored" of the Premier League club's position in the table as well as their style of play.

In February 2016 Payet signed a new five-year contract with the Hammers, which gave the player a significant pay rise, believed to be double the money he was previously on.

The France worldwide went on strike at the London Stadium in an attempt to fast-track his exit from the Hammers and says he needed a fresh challenge after being suffocated by manager Slaven Bilic's pragmatic approach.

"You can say that it bothered me, yes".

"I had had contact with Marseille and most notably with Rudi Garcia, who had a philosophy that I knew well. The players should be in position and then if we are with the ball, 30 metres from their goal, I am expecting my defenders to go up and try and win the ball". If I had waited six months, I was losing six months.

"I thought that I would not have room for improvement". On the contrary, I risked regressing.

The player himself said he wanted to make the move for personal reasons, but - in an interview with L'Equipe - Payet has now revealed that the poor nature of the team's play was also a contributing factor. "I need 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". I respected the choice. I'm happy with him, great professional, great left foot.

West Ham believe Payet's career was "resurrected" during his 18 months at West Ham.
