In what continues to be a dramatic and pulsating start to the 2020/21 premier league, the Hammers thrashed Wolverhampton Wanderers 4 goals to nil at home on Sunday evening to wrap up the games for the weekend.
West Ham, who lost to Arsenal last week in a testing fixture, knew they had to respond with a positive result as they had played 2 games and hadn’t registered a win yet. Manager David Moyes has come under much scrutiny as transfers went horribly when they allowed one of their top talents to leave, much to the dismay of some players and the fans.
Coming off the back of that and already losing their first two games, West Ham needed a win or at least a draw. But it would not be easy. Not against Nunu Espirito’s Wolves. But it was.
The premier league fixtures are now producing dramatic results, and after Leicester thrashed Manchester City at home by 5 goals, it was the turn of the Hammers to turn on the style against a Wolves side that played in Europe last season.
Wolves have been a tricky opponent to face in the Premier League as they have proven repeatedly by taking the scalp of teams like City, Chelsea, United, Spurs, etc. But on this night, Wolves were also just 1 win out of 2 matches. Sadly, they now made it 2 losses out of 3 matches.
Jarrod Bowen scored a brace with Sebastian Haller also grabbing a goal and Raul Jimenez putting the ball behind the back of his net to heap much disgrace unto the away side who had a night to forget against the Hammers. With that result, Wolves dropped to 16th on the table whereas West Ham climbed up to 10th.
