Luton Town v West Ham United Match Preview & Best Odds

Kenilworth Road, Friday 1st September 8:00pm


After two games of the 2023/24 Premier League campaign, Luton Town are still in search of their first win but they are preparing for their first outing at Kenilworth Road this season, West Ham United the visitors in what will be a tough encounter for the home side.


Excellent start

West Ham have enjoyed an excellent start to the season with wins over Chelsea and Brighton & Hove Albion thus far, however victory over Luton Town on Friday evening would send them into pole position.  The Hammers have been busy in the summer sales with their midfield being rebuilt following the departure of Declan Rice, Nikola Vlasic and Gianluca Scamacca, the future starting to look bright on the back of their Europa Conference League triumph.


Goalscoring opportunities

In their last outing, West Ham secured a convincing 3-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion despite having just 22% possession in that encounter. They had plenty of goal scoring opportunities come their way and were more than happy to sit compact and hit Brighton on the counter-attack.


Easily beaten

Luton Town are firm favourites to be relegated straight back into the Championship and they have been easily beaten in each of their opening two games this term. This clash with the Hammers looks set to be a rather intriguing match with neither side prioritising keeping hold of the ball, thus possession may well be more evenly shared here.


Direct approach

The Hatters tend to favour long direct balls but do press the opposition at the high end of the pitch, while the Hammers won’t be happy to invite the press and play the ball around at the rear. The direct approach here will probably result in an abundance of goalmouth action and on that basis we’ll be siding with Over 27.5 Shots in this game at best odds of 17/20.
