West Ham scored three goals in 17 second-half minutes to secure a fine comeback victory at Bournemouth in the Premier League on Tuesday night.

The Cherries appeared on course for victory after Irish midfielder Harry Arter opened the scoring with 17 minutes gone.

But Dimtri Payet hauled the visitors level with a magnificent free-kick shortly after the hour mark before Enner Valencia fired West Ham into the lead.

The Ecuadorian international then scored his second of the night with another fine free-kick to see the Hammers secure their third consecutive league victory.

Benik Afobe, the £10million signing from Wolves, was Eddie Howe's only change from his side's 0-0 draw at Leicester. Fellow new arrivals Lewis Grabban and Juan Iturbe were named on the bench.
