West Ham beat Brighton thanks to Ward-Prowse’s goal.

According to goalscorer James Ward-Prowse, West Ham United “executed their game plan perfectly” to maintain their unblemished start and stun Brighton with a clinical counter-attacking effort.

West Ham finished Saturday with the most goals scored in the Premier League, however Manchester City and Liverpool could potentially leapfrog them if they win on Sunday.

Ward-Prowse scored his first goal for the Hammers in the 19th minute, tapping in from two yards out following superb work by Michail Antonio.

Jarrod Bowen scored the visitors’ second goal in the 58th minute, pulling down Said Benrahma’s cross and putting the ball into the corner.

Despite dominating possession and territory, Bowen set up Antonio to drive a shot into the corner for the away side’s third goal in the 63rd minute.

The Seagulls scored a late consolation goal when Pascal Gross’ drive reached the far corner, but David Moyes’ side held on to win despite a late surge of Brighton pressure.

“A lot of effort went into the game plan, and you have to respect Brighton,” Ward-Prowse said on BBC Match of the Day.

“We were compact and clinical, denying Brighton space.” We kept our cool to make the most of our opportunities, and we executed our game plan flawlessly.”
