Bowen ready for a very special night

Jarrod Bowen’s return from injury against Everton on Saturday was a massive boost for the Hammers but the front man doesn’t believe he is crucial to the team.

After results against Sevilla and Villa he’s happy to accept the club has players who can get results although missing the game against the Spanish was a big disappointment.

Jarrod has unquestionably been one of the best buys the club has made in many years and on Sunday took his goals tally to 21 over the last two seasons with hopefully more to come.

He is on 13 for the current campaign and following a goal on his return from the lay off will be looking for more tomorrow night.

With another capacity crowd inside the stadium it’s going to be a huge night particularly with the prospect of a possible semi final clash against Barcelona to follow

He’s clearly buzzing for the game and told www.whufc.com: “I was here for the Sevilla game, and as much as you’re loving the night, there’s that bit inside of you as a player that wants to be part of it on the pitch. 

Unfortunately, it didn’t happen – injuries happen at probably the worst time – but the lads did brilliantly to get through, and now there’s another two legs. 

Thursday night will be another special night, and then we’ll see where we go after that.

When I first came in, we were in a relegation battle. Then lockdown happened, which gave us a bit of time away from football even though, as players, we didn’t want it – those were the circumstances we were under.

Then, we came back the following season and got into the Europa League. This season, we’re in the question for the top four, so it just shows how far we’ve come as a Club as a whole, and as a player you want to be at the clubs who are talking about the top four and being in the last few teams in European competitions.

Winning games of football is what we all want to do. We’ve got a lot of games coming up, and to keep that winning momentum and that confidence in the group is obviously good for everyone involved. 

We’ve got a lot of games now coming up in a short space of time, so the main thing is to just keep winning every game.
