Match ends, West Ham United 4, Wolverhampton Wanderers 0.
Jarrod Bowen scored twice as West Ham registered their first Premier League win of the season against a disappointing Wolves side.
The result lifts the Hammers from 18th up to 12th in the table, with Wolves dropping down to 16th.
It was no more than the hosts deserved, dominating once Bowen had opened the scoring at the London Stadium.
Bowen, who had managed just one goal for West Ham since joining them in January, superbly set them on their way, curling a left-foot effort into the bottom corner after being sent clear by Pablo Fornals’ quick free-kick.
The former Hull forward doubled West Ham’s lead after the break, prodding in from close range after a Fornal effort had come back off the post.
The Hammers had lost each of their last four top-flight fixtures against Wolves without scoring a single goal, but they created several excellent chances to put the game out of sight.
Tomas Soucek made it three with a header that flicked in off Raul Jimenez from Aaron Cresswell’s corner, and Sebastien Haller’s later header added the gloss to a fine victory.
More to follow.
