West Ham showcased a remarkable resurgence in the Premier League as they secured a 3-0 triumph against Wolves, with Mohammed Kudus stealing the spotlight with a brilliant brace.

In a stark contrast to their previous 5-0 defeat at the hands of Fulham just seven days ago, West Ham delivered a dominant performance, showcasing their resilience and determination.

Ghanaian forward Mohammed Kudus emerged as the hero of the day, exhibiting his prowess with a superb strike from the edge of the box, followed by a composed close-range effort within ten minutes. These goals firmly established West Ham’s control over the game by the halftime whistle.

Despite Wolves applying pressure in the second half, West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen sealed the points in the 74th minute with his 10th Premier League goal of the season.

Notably, David Moyes’ squad displayed minimal signs of fatigue from their recent 2-0 victory against Freiburg, securing their place in the Europa League’s last 16.

This crucial win propels West Ham to seventh place in the Premier League standings, while Wolves maintain their position in 13th, comfortably sitting 10 points clear of the relegation zone.

Eager to avoid a second consecutive league defeat following the setback at Craven Cottage, West Ham commenced the match with determination. Kurt Zouma, Bowen, and Lucas Paqueta threatened early on before Kudus’ exceptional low, left-footed strike found the right corner of the net.

The synergy between Paqueta and Kudus was evident once again as they combined for West Ham’s second goal, with Kudus expertly finishing after a well-timed pass from the Brazilian.

Following the break, Wolves posed a more formidable challenge, with Matheus Cunha and Hwang Hee-chan, the club’s leading scorers this season, coming close to breaking West Ham’s defense.

Their hopes were momentarily lifted when Pablo Sarabia connected with Nelson Semedo’s delivery across the goal, only for the goal to be disallowed for offside following an extensive VAR review.

Despite Wolves’ intensified efforts, Lucas Paqueta thwarted their ambitions, completing a hat-trick of assists with a clever pass that set up Jarrod Bowen. Bowen outpaced former Hammers defender Craig Dawson and skillfully found the bottom left corner of the net.
