West Ham United would be really struggling this season if it wasn’t for one player in particular according to Declan Rice.
The Hammers are currently flying high in fourth spot in the Premier League table.
Granted, we have played more games than any of the teams in and around us, but those sides still have to win their matches in hand in order to leap-frog us.
David Moyes has worked wonders since taking over at the London Stadium for the second time just over two years ago.
Declan Rice’s fine form has played a key role in West Ham’s resurgence over the past 18 months or so. But Dec believes that someone else deserves all the praise.
Declan Rice says West Ham would have struggled this season without one player
The 23-year-old absolutely raved about Jarrod Bowen after our win over Watford last night.
The hard-working attacker won the game for us with a second-half goal. He really has made a huge difference for us this season and has arguably been our best player since the turn of the year.
When speaking to BBC Sport after last night’s win over Watford, Dec absolutely raved about his 25-year-old teammate:
“Without his goals we’d be struggling. He’s really stepped it up. His goals and assists – he’s a really top player and he’s going to be a star.”
Bowen has been in truly sensational form for West Ham so far this season.
The former Hull City man has bagged 11 goals and 10 assists in 34 games in all competitions for Moyes’s side (Transfermarkt).
Bowen is strong, possesses brilliant technique, has pace and an incredible work ethic and he is an exceptional finisher.
In essence, he’s the perfect player for David Moyes and West Ham. And the exciting thing is that he just continues to get better and better. Long may that continue.
