West Ham United's Enner Valencia celebrates scoring his side's second goal against Bournemouth during their English Premier League match at the Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth yesterday.

A second-half flurry of goals moved West Ham past Bournemouth 3-1 for their third straight win in the English Premier League yesterday.

The result lifted West Ham one point above Manchester United in fifth.

Harry Arter scored his maiden league goal early for Bournemouth, hosting their first Premier League game under lights, and hung on to the lead until an hour in. Dimitri Payet, making his first start in more than three months, equalised with a smart free kick off the underside of the crossbar, and Enner Valencia netted twice, the second off another free kick, all in a span of 17 minutes.
