Jarrod Bowen update


Claret and Hugh has been handed a Jarrod Bowen update. The No 20 is improving from his injury but won’t be sufficiently fit to play against Backa Topola in Serbia on Thursday evening tomorrow¬† in the Group A Europa League game. We were told this morning however that there are high hopes he will be available for the match against Crystal Palace.

Jarrod Bowen update

David Moyes had suggested – in what seems now like a game of smoke and mirrors ahead of the Burnley game – that he might have been ready for the match at Turf Moor. That was never going to be the case though after he picked up his injury in the international break and was sent back to the club by manager Gareth Southgate.

It seemed at the time that it may be quite a serious injury but following a scan it was revealed he might miss up to three or four games. However, we were told this morning that whilst there is no chance of the leading goal scorer being available for the match in Serbia, and probably wouldn’t play even were he fully fit anyway, the clubs was now hopeful that he would take his place either in the starting line-up or on the bench for the Palace game.
