"We needed Chicharito, I think the sort of goal he got today might be typical, so we need to try and get a lot more balls in the box and hopefully he's going to score a lot more for us in the coming weeks and months".

David Moyes says West Ham are making steady progress but he is demanding more from his players who extended their unbeaten run to seven games.

'I always say to players, they'll get their chance and it's up to them to take it. Chicharito has played some games, he's come on and made a difference - and he can do that.

Things have not gone to plan for Hernandez since a £16million move from Bayer Leverkusen in the off-season, but he scored just 64 seconds after Ryan Fraser put Bournemouth ahead in the 71st minute to earn the Hammers a point.

'We've got so much powerful threat up front at the moment, ' Moyes said.

Lanzini went off in the 64th minute to add to West Ham's injury concerns and their problems worsened when Fraser drilled a fine through-ball from former Hammer Junior Stanislas beyond Adrian. "We're working hard and we'll keep trying to get someone".

"I thought we played some of our best football this season, especially in the first half, but Bournemouth got strong in the second part of both halves, so in the end perhaps the draw was the right result. He's an impact player", he added.

Manuel Lanzini played Arnautovic through on 28 minutes, but he failed to hit the target before being taken out by Ake, and Lewis Cook was also off target with a curled shot that was inches wide.

After experiencing the ecstasy of coming from behind to beat Arsenal last weekend, Bournemouth's fortunes switched as it was unable to hold its lead in Eddie Howe's 100th top-flight match as manager. 'We've arguably got one of the best forwards, I know there are others, but I think Marko's up there.

"We hope Mano's [Lanzini] isn't serious. We haven't attacked the ball well enough, twice, just outside our box".
