West Ham ace Declan Rice explained why he was so desperate for Jarrod Bowen to score against Leeds yesterday, when speaking to ITV Sport (Sunday January 9th, 4:04pm).
The Hammers beat Leeds comfortably at the London Stadium yesterday and we are now safely through to the fourth round.
An exciting tie away at Kidderminster Harriers awaits on February 5th.
Everything is looking very positive at West Ham at the moment. Yesterday was out third successive win in all competitions.
David Moyes will have to get his team ready again very quickly with Premier League games against Norwich and Leeds to come on Wednesday and Sunday respectively.
Confidence amongst the West Ham players will be high at the moment though and at this stage of the season, that is absolutely vital.
Yesterday’s injury time goal from Jarrod Bowen was the cherry on the cake yesterday for the Hammers and Declan Rice has explained why he was so desperate for his teammate to score.
Declan Rice shares what he thought before Jarrod Bowen scored yesterday
The 25-year-old Hammers ace put the game to bed yesterday after scoring in the 93rd minute, having been played through by Michail Antonio.
And Rice shared why he was so desperate for Bowen to find the back of the net, when speaking to ITV Sport:
“As Mick was running through I was thinking please let it be a goal because this place is going to erupt. The roar was incredible, these fans, every time we go out there they give 100% to us and we want to give it back to them.”
Every single person involved with West Ham at the moment is absolutely buzzing.
There is a genuine feel-good factor emanating from the London Stadium.
The good results this season have certainly helped with that. And never before has there been such a close connection between players and fans.
Yesterday’s win over Leeds further enhanced that relationship.
The London Stadium was absolutely on fire after Bowen found the back of the net. The feel-good times are back in the East End. And long may that continue.
