West Ham News

Tim Sherwood is the latest to praise Jarrod Bowen even after West Ham lost 2-3 against Leeds United!

 

Bowen is enjoying a ‘purple patch’ in terms of form, and his first goal for West Ham was welcome..even if it didn’t change the result.

West Ham scored twice despite losing. The other scorer for the Hammers? Pablo Fornals, however the efforts of the two were in vain as Leeds took home the points, by means of a first senior hat-trick from Jack Harrison.

Sherwood said to Premier League Tv production:

 

Jarrod Bowen is on a streak. An in-form man at the moment. Absolutely outstanding. He makes no mistake.”

 

 

Some thinking for Moyes….

 

Bowen is a revelation for West Ham recently, and one can only hope that the national selectors view this favourably, as he deserves a run in the team. But, how good has he been?

Bowen has found the net on five occasions as well as providing three assists, all in only 7 games. There is a reason for this purple patch. He has demonstrated good sharpness, excellent movement, and carries the team forward with his excellent displays. He has raised his game to a different level, and the class is there for all to see.

However, even putting the loss aside, Moyes is facing issues on several fronts.

The Hammers defence, is a worry for Moyes. Even with Kurt Zouma returning, the defence needs strengthening. This means that West Ham must sign a centre back if their season is not to be wasted.

 

Are the Hammers becoming too dependant on Bowen?

 

Bowen’s contributions have been welcome. However, when you consider that he has rifled off an average of 5 shots per game, and lead striker Michail Antonio has only had one( according to Whoscored.), there could be problems for the Hammers..they could be relying too much on just one player.

Not to say that Antonio doesn’t contribute. In fact, Antonio has been the instigator of a good number of creative passes, but when scoring is falling only to Bowen, a problem is brewing.

Some alternative options are needed. Getting the goals spread more evenly is a must if the Hammers are to finish in the Champions League places this year.
