West Ham beats Bournemouth 1-0 in 1st game at new home

LONDON (AP) " West Ham started Premier League life at its new home at the London Stadium by beating 10-man Bournemouth 1-0 on Sunday, with Michail Antonio grabbing the 85th-minute winner.

The winger rose at the far post to head in Gokhan Tore's cross in one of the few chances created in a drab, low-quality match.

Bournemouth had been left a man short eight minutes earlier after midfielder Harry Arter was given a second booking.

West Ham bid farewell to Upton Park " its home of 112 years " at the end of last season to take up tenancy at the stadium that was the centerpiece of the London Olympics in 2012. The team has already played a Europa League qualifier there.

West Ham collected its first points of the new league season.
