Hammers ace compared to Salah

West Ham ace Jarrod Bowen has been compared to Mo Salah after his dazzling display against Watford.

The Hammers ace absolutely tore the Hornets apart as the Hammers got back to winning ways with a 4-1 victory at Vicarage Road.

Bowen registered three assists throughout the game and could have scored himself, as he slammed a volley into the back of the net, only to see the goal ruled out by VAR due to a Tomas Soucek foul in the build-up.

Salah, of course, has been in electric form for Liverpool this season, scoring 22 goals in 25 games in all competitions and also registering 11 assists.

The Egypt international has developed into one of the very best attackers in world football during his time at Anfield and Tony Cascarino thinks that Bowen is now reaching a level of performance where he can be compared with Salah.

Speaking to talkSPORT after the Irons’ win over Watford, he said: “He had an amazing goal record at Hull City before West Ham bought him. It was something like 50-odd goals in 120 appearances. That’s not bad for someone who is not a natural centre forward.

“He’s direct and he’s a bit like Salah where he always seems to get a chance in a game and will run at people and play in different positions. He has great energy. He will help his full-back out all the time.

“He’s come on leaps and bounds and you have to give David Moyes credit for that. He’s stayed with him.

“Benrahma is more skilful, on the other side he’s got loads of tricks in his armoury. 

“Bowen is more predictable but very effective. He will always outscore Benrahma.”

  1. And who compared him to Salah ?Cascarino? Bowen doing very well but sorry not having that/ Makes a story for someone i suppose. Gives people publicity.

  2. Where he really shines is his vision in the box and his assists show that he is really deadly effective. A striker who knows when to shoot and when to play in is a true talent and a nightmare to play against.

  3. Waiting for the ‘Salah is on the move’ report again then another Klippity wants Bowen…yawn
