Moyes blown away by one Hammer

David Moyes has been blown away by the improvement shown by winger Jarrod Bowen this season.

The Hammers star has been so good that he certainly appears to be knocking on the England door as he has increased his output in terms of both goals and assists.

This season, Bowen has scored six goals in all competitions and has also laid on 10 assists.

The penny certainly appears to have dropped for the former Hull City ace and Moyes has been delighted with the winger’s displays throughout the season, although he believes that he still has an extra level that he can reach as he continues his improvement.

Speaking ahead of this week’s clash with Norwich, the boss told reporters, as per the club’s official website: “Jarrod’s improvement in the two years he’s been here has been brilliant.

“Some players from the lower leagues take time. Jarrod started near enough right away but has taken his game onto another level, and he needs to keep it up.

“I think he can do what he wants – he can play even better – but he’s doing a great job for us just now.”

Moyes is also looking forward to the game against the Premier League’s bottom club, insisting that they have the chance to stay in the league if they can put a run of form together; they have won just twice this season.

He added: “The thing about Norwich is they’ve got a really good manager in Dean Smith. It’ll take a little bit of time to get things sorted. They’re in a fight to stay up, but I think there’s a chance for the bottom five teams – there’s a fight on.

“Norwich will see every game as an opportunity, but I see it at West Ham as a chance to challenge the teams at the top and keep trying to win.”
