West Ham 2-1 Win Destroys Luton’s First Top-Flight Home Match In 31 Years

Pacesetters Jarrod Bowen and Kurt Zouma’s headers gave West Ham United a 2-1 Premier League victory at Luton Town on Friday, deflating the hosts’ much-awaited return to the top division at their intimate Kenilworth Road home after 31 years.

Mads Andersen scored a goal for Luton in extra time to the joy of the boisterous home crowd by heading past goalie Alphonse Areola, but his team lost the match.

With 10 points after four games, West Ham, the last top-flight team to defeat Luton at home (in 1992), holds the provisional lead over Rob Edwards’ Hatters team, who are still looking for their first points of the season.

“It’s been a great start for me and the team, we are actually annoyed to be sitting here with 10 points and not 12,” Bowen told Sky Sports.

Lucas Paqueta’s precise cross to the far post, which was headed in off the palms of goalkeeper Thomas Kaminski, who slumped to his back in disgust, set up Bowen’s third goal of the game in the 37th minute.

“I headed straight at the keeper so I got away with that one. I don’t score many headers,” said Bowen, the first West Ham player since 1930 to score in their first three away games.

In the 85th minute, Zouma scored on a corner kick from James Ward-Prowse.

“It’s a great feeling in a tough game,” Zouma said of his goal. “James sent in a great ball and I just had to put it in. We knew they would put pressure on us and we had to stay calm and keep the ball.

“Luton made it tough for us, it was very busy but we had a solid match. I am very proud to be captain, by scoring today I did my best.”

Late requests for a handball against Ward-Prowse were ignored.

“If we are on the wrong end of a decision I will be very disappointed as those are huge for us,” Edwards said. “But I can’t stand here and blame it.”
