Wolves 1 West Ham 2: Ward Prowse stunner saves the day


Ward Prowse stunner saves the day

West Ham’s pursuit of European qualification in the Premier League remains alive after a narrow 2-1 victory away to Wolverhampton Wanderers, but manager David Moyes can count himself fortunate following the result.

The Hammers endured a dismal first half, with Wolves’ standout performer, Aït-Nouri, posing a constant threat until his substitution in the 55th minute. Interestingly, Moyes’ side seemed to find their rhythm only after this pivotal change.

James Ward-Prowse’s remarkable goal directly from a corner turned the tide for West Ham, as they rallied from behind to secure the win. However, the victory came at a cost, as Jarrod Bowen sustained an injury just days before their crucial Europa League clash against Bayer Leverkusen. The goal from JWP was a real stunner, I’m sure many will credit the weather conditions but he is capable of such things from set-pieces. The midfielder deserves every bit of praise he receives because his deployment in the first half did him no favours at all.

Wolves 1-2 West Ham: Ward Prowse stunner saves the day

Despite Ward-Prowse’s heroics and a timely intervention from VAR that disallowed Wolves’ late equaliser, concerns linger over Bowen’s fitness ahead of the European fixture. The win has propelled West Ham level on points with sixth-placed Manchester United in the race for Europa League qualification, but Bowen’s injury adds a layer of uncertainty to our immediate European hopes.

    A neutral observer would say that West Ham were lucky to get 3 points. Another mediocre performance. And the lack of movement during the January window is now biting the squad in the rear end. Poor management skills and poor planning all the way.

    Bayer Leverkusen has a good team. Unless West Ham can vastly improve, they may get embarrassed by the Germans.
