Jarrod Bowen is still struggling with his bruised Achilles and is certain to miss the Sevilla vs West Ham Europa League clash.
That’s according to high-level club insiders Claret and Hugh who claims that the 25-year-old will not travel out to Seville.
Bowen has been in absolutely sensational form for West Ham so far this season.
The former Hull City attacker has bagged 12 goals and 11 assists in all competitions for the Hammers.
The hard-working forward was forced to leave the pitch against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday, however, having suffered an Achilles tendon injury. It seemed certain that he would miss the Sevilla vs West Ham clash at the time.
It was a huge relief for the West Ham fans, however, when news emerged on the official club website on Sunday evening that the injury sustained by Bowen was not a serious one and that he has not sustained any significant damage to his foot.
It appears as though we may have got ahead of ourselves after hearing the supposed good news, however…
What Bowen has told staff ahead of Sevilla vs West Ham
The Sevilla vs West Ham clash will come too soon for the 25-year-old.
Claret and Hugh claims that Bowen has made it clear to the backroom staff that he will not be able to travel to Seville.
The Bowen injury news will be hard to swallow for the Hammers fans.
We are a team though. David Moyes places huge emphasis on his players working together as a unit rather than individuals carrying us week in, week out.
Declan Rice and Jarrod Bowen are obviously the two best players at the London Stadium. We proved on Saturday at Anfield how we can cope without Dec though.
And there’s no reason why West Ham won’t be able to do the same without Bowen vs Sevilla at The Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium on Thursday night in the Europa League.
Missing Jarrod will obviously be a blow for the Hammers. But at the same time, it will provide someone like Said Benrahma with a huge opportunity to make a statement to the gaffer.
And hopefully the players do enough to get a result vs Sevilla. It’s the biggest game we have faced as a football club since the FA Cup final in 2006.
So whoever Moyes selects to play should be well up for it and hopefully we will not miss Jarrod Bowen. Having said that, he is still a vitally important player for West Ham and the sooner he returns to action the better for us.
