West Ham United to Win

Reason for tip

This is Luton’s first home game since promotion and they should be fired up for this test, but if West Ham can survive the likely early pressure they should be able to come away with three points. The Hammers have seven points from three games and their two victories have come against teams who have already beaten Luton this season, so back the visitors to spoil the party at Kenilworth Road.

West Ham United 2-1

Reason for tip

West Ham have conceded exactly one goal in all three of their Premier League games so far, scoring seven themselves, and Luton are generally good for a goal at home, having only failed to score in one of their last nine at Kenilworth Road. This should be a close game but with West Ham in good form back the visitors to edge this clash with a 2-1 win.

James Ward Prowse To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

James Ward-Prowse has two assists and a goal in 170 minutes for the East Londoners. Ward-Prowse grabbed his first Hammers goal against Brighton last time out and had three shots in total during that game, so he looks a good contender for an anytime goal.

Luton vs West Ham United Predictions

  • The Hammers have beaten both of the teams Luton have lost to.
  • Luton have scored in eight of their last nine home games.

Luton face West Ham examination

Kenilworth Road is now ready for top flight action after necessary upgrades, and Luton Town have their first home game since promotion as they entertain West Ham in the Premier League on Friday night.

The Hatters have found the step up tough so far with two defeats in as many games, while West Ham arrive in form after picking up seven points from their first three fixtures.

Luton’s results at home will be crucial to their chances of avoiding an immediate return to the second tier but they face a particularly tricky tie on Friday.

Hammers can handle atmosphere

Luton will be looking to make the most of home advantage and the crowd will obviously get behind them, but West Ham should be able to handle that pressure.

The hosts have lost to Brighton and Chelsea so far, conceding seven goals and scoring just once themselves. The Hammers also go into this game having faced Albion and the Blues – beating both of those teams 3-1 – and that suggests they should have too much for Luton.

The fact that this is Luton’s first top flight home game in over 30 years – during which time they have fallen out of the Football League and worked their way all the way back to the top – means this is clearly a special occasion and one that may well be treated like a cup final. As such, Luton shouldn’t be discounted here despite West Ham’s strong early season form and this will probably be a close and hard-fought game. With that in mind a 2-1 win for West Ham is the correct score prediction.

David Moyes’ side have conceded exactly one goal in all three of their Premier League games so far and Luton are generally good for a goal at home, having only failed to score in one of their last nine at this venue.

Ward-Prowse making Hammers impact

West Ham captured James Ward-Prowse from Southampton over the summer and the midfielder is already starting to make his mark for his new club.

The 28-year-old has two assists and a goal in 170 minutes for the East Londoners. Ward-Prowse grabbed his first Hammers goal against Brighton last time out and had three shots in total during that game, so he looks a good contender for an anytime goal on Friday or for a goal or an assist if you’re putting together a Friday night football bet builder.
