Perfectionist James Ward-Prowse seemed content enough with the weekends performance against The Blades. However the midfielder remained unsatisfied with scoreline, and let it be know that he wants more in future.
Moyes boys secured a solid victory against Sheffield United with a 2-0 victory, whilst maintaining a strong seventh position in the league table. However, there was a hint of frustration in the air as they wished for a more comprehensive scoreline.
The former Saint told West Ham’s website: “We knew it was going to be a tough game, but the two early goals helped us and I think we’re a little bit disappointed that we couldn’t build on that with more goals in the second half.”
Individually, Ward-Prowse has shone brightly, displaying his prowess with two goals and five assists in the first seven games for the Hammers. He attributed this success to the incredible support from fans and the efficient staff, emphasizing how it aided in his swift integration into the team.
He has also settled into a rhythm alongside Tomas Soucek and Edson Alvarez in a combative, yet clinical midfield. If that combination can continue to flourish in the middle of the park, we could be poised to maintain our decent start in the Premier League.
What is clear, is that Ward Prowse has set himself very high standards. Many of us fans (of a certain vintage) can remember a time when the lesser teams would come to East London and cause an upset. There’s nothing wrong with a workmanlike and efficient 2-0 home win.
But the fact that James Ward Prowse feels there was room for improvement is a very good omen.
