Bitesize Prediction: West Ham vs Luton – 11/05/24

Competition: Premier League

Market: West Ham win

Odds: 4/5 @ Pribet

Facing what is a season-defining showdown on Saturday afternoon, West Ham will welcome Luton to the London Stadium.

Starting with the hosts, with it officially confirmed earlier in the week that David Moyes will be leaving the London Stadium at the end of the season, West Ham are desperate to find a much-welcomed boost on Saturday afternoon. Although the Hammers might have signed off 2023 in the midst of a real purple patch, the one-time Manchester United boss has seen his squad come crashing back down to earth in a worrying fashion. Last seen putting in a nightmare performance away at historic rivals Chelsea as they slumped to a 5-0 drumming, West Ham have remarkably recorded just four wins across all competitions since opening the New Year. Gaining a reputation for their glaring defensive issues, Moyes’ side have come under increasing scrutiny. Nevertheless, hoping to avoid a potential banana skin this weekend, the Hammers did collect a 2-1 victory when they travelled to Kenilworth Road for their reverse Premier League battle on September 1st.

As for the visitors, although Luton might have received plenty of plaudits since making their famous Premier League return this season, Rob Edwards’ men appear to be limping their way back to the Championship. Despite snatching a late point against Everton last weekend as they clung to a 1-1 stalemate on home soil, the former Watford boss has seen his squad muster just a single victory from any of their previous 16 appearances across all competitions – a rut that stems all the way back to January 30th. Hit with that 2-1 loss when they welcomed the Hammers to town for their reverse showdown at the start of September, Luton have also continued to show a string of glaring issues away from Kenilworth Road. Last seen on their travels suffering a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Wolves, Saturday’s guests have lost all of their previous five away fixtures by an aggregate score of 15-6.
