ExWHUemployee has highlighted an incredibly impressive statistic from last weekend’s Premier League action. West Ham ace Jarrod Bowen clocked the fastest speed out of any player in the league during the games on Saturday and Sunday (The Sun).
Bowen joined the Hammers from Hull City on transfer deadline day in January for £22 million (The Guardian).
And he has made an instant impact at the London Stadium. The 23-year-old has already established himself as a hugely important player for David Moyes.
And West Ham will be desperate to avoid the drop this season, because Bowen allegedly has a relegation release clause inserted into his contract (Football.London).
The former Hull ace has racked up one goal and three assists in eight Premier League games for the Hammers thus far (Who Scored).
During those outings, he has averaged 1.6 shots, 1.3 key passes and 1.1 dribbles per game (Who Scored).
Bowen’s work-rate is second to none as well. And that has arguably been one of the most impressive aspects of his game.
The 23-year-old is incredibly quick too.
The Sun reported that Bowen clocked a weekend high speed of 22.3 mph against Newcastle on Sunday.

He’s quality, I really like him. Great amount of effort. Half the price of Anderson and twice the player.

Deceptive. He really doesn’t look that fast. But can’t argue with the stats. Love his attitude and application.

His movement and speed is a problem for teams.
So nice to have at last.

West Ham desperately need Bowen to be at his very best for their final five games.
And if the Hammers manage to avoid relegation, the 23-year-old winger could be an absolute revelation in the Premier League next season.
