West Ham’s remarkable run continued as they clinched their third consecutive win, briefly ascending to the summit of the English Premier League with a 2-1 victory over Luton. This historic match unfolded at Kenilworth Road, marking the venue’s return to top-flight action for the first time since the 1991-92 season, just before the Premier League’s inception. However, Luton’s much-anticipated return to the big stage yielded no points.

In the 37th minute, it was West Ham’s talisman, Jarrod Bowen, who broke the deadlock with an impeccable header, expertly connecting with a pinpoint cross from Lucas Paqueta. The ball sailed past Luton’s goalkeeper, Thomas Kaminski, nestling into the net. Bowen’s achievement was significant as it marked his third consecutive goal in top-flight away matches this season. This feat made him the first West Ham player since the 1930-31 season to accomplish such a remarkable streak.

West Ham Soars to the Top of EPL with Victory Over Luton

Luton, having lost their first two league games, struggled to pose any significant offensive threat. West Ham further solidified their lead in the 85th minute when Kurt Zouma, left unmarked during a corner kick, powered a header into the net from a precise delivery by James Ward-Prowse. Luton managed to pull one goal back during stoppage time, courtesy of a strike from center-back Mads Andersen, offering a glimmer of consolation.

With this win, West Ham amassed 10 points from their opening four matches, momentarily seizing the top spot in the league standings. They edged ahead of Manchester City by a solitary point, as City was scheduled to play their postponed match against Fulham on Saturday.
