The Ghanaian attacker scored twice in the first half to give the Hammers a comfortable lead, and Jarrod Bowen sealed the victory with a third goal in the 74th minute.
Kudus’ first goal was a beautiful strike from the edge of the box, showcasing his excellent technique and power. He then doubled his tally less than 10 minutes later with a calm finish from close range, demonstrating his composure in front of goal.
The 23-year-old’s performance was all the more impressive given his initial struggle to break into the West Ham starting lineup.
However, with his consistent displays and high level of performance, Kudus has won over manager David Moyes and established himself as a key player for the club.
Unfortunately for West Ham, Kudus will miss a month or less due to his expected call-up to the Ghana squad for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations tournament. However, his absence will provide an opportunity for other players to step up and make their mark.
Kudus has now scored five Premier League goals, but nine in all competitions for West Ham since joining the club in August.
