Luton Town v West Ham United preview: Team news, head-to-head and stats


Luton Town will again be without the injured trio of Jordan Clark, Gabriel Osho and Dan Potts.

Aside from that, manager Rob Edwards has a fully-fit squad to choose from.

West Ham's new signing Mohammed Kudus is available to make his debut, but fellow arrival Konstantinos Mavropanos is still troubled by a back injury.

Nayef Aguerd is back from suspension, but Tomas Soucek has been ruled out due to concussion protocols after being forced off against Brighton last week.



  • This is the first meeting between these sides since March 1994 when Luton won a FA Cup quarter-final replay 3-2 at Kenilworth Road.

  • The Hammers have gone four matches without a win against Luton since beating them in January 1992, in what was the Hatters' last season in the top-flight.

Luton Town

  • Kenilworth Road becomes the 61st different stadium to host a Premier League game.

  • This is Luton's first top-flight home fixture since a 2-0 win against Aston Villa on 25 April 1992.

  • In that 1991-92 season, they lost only four of their 21 home league matches, but were winless in all 21 league away fixtures.

  • The Hatters have lost both of their opening two matches of a league campaign for the first time since 2002-03 in the third tier.

  • They are aiming to avoid becoming only the second team to lose their first three matches of a top-flight season by a margin of three or more goals after West Brom in 1890-91.

  • Promoted teams have lost all seven of the Premier League games this season by an aggregate score of 18-4.

West Ham United

  • This is only the second time this century after the 2021-22 campaign that West Ham have remained unbeaten in all of their opening three matches to a league season.

  • David Moyes' side are aiming to win three consecutive league matches for the first time since January 2022.

  • A victory would see them top the table (having played at least four top-flight games) for the first time since October 1983.

  • They lost their first league match against promoted opposition last season, but won all five of their remaining such fixtures by an aggregate score of 14-1.

  • After failing to score an away goal in the Premier League last season, Jarrod Bowen could become the first Hammers player to score in their first three top-flight away games in a season since the club's all-time top scorer Vic Watson in 1930-31.
