West Ham United travel to Bournemouth on Saturday knowing a win could push the club up to seventh place.
West Ham go into the game against the Cherries off the back of a superb 1-0 win over Arsenal.
While the Hammers are flying, Bournemouth have lost four of their last five games.
The trip to the seaside is set against the backdrop of January transfer unrest for Manuel Pellegrini, though.
The future of striker Marko Arnautovic is uncertain after his agent and brother Danijel told talkSPORT that the West Ham talisman has made his mind up and wants to leave.
It comes after Arnautovic was the subject of a £35million bid from a Chinese club – believed to be Shanghai SIPG (Sky Sports).
