Jarrod Bowen has named Felipe Anderson as the best player at West Ham, when speaking exclusively to the club’s official website.

The pacy winger joined the Hammers from Lazio in the summer of 2018 for around £35 million (The Telegraph).
The Brazilian really impressed for West Ham during his debut campaign in England. But his performance levels have dipped dramatically this season.
Anderson has chalked up just one goal and five assists in 24 games in all competitions for West Ham since August (Transfermarkt).
In spite of his struggles, the Brazilian is the kind of player who can change a game at the drop of a hat, when he is on song.
And Bowen has certainly been impressed with what he has seen of the 27-year-old.
The January recruit responded when asked by WHUFC.com to name the best player currently at West Ham:
“When I first came to training, Felipe Anderson. He’s Brazilian and the skills he’s got are incredible. I think he was injured when I first came, but when he came back and got into training, the stuff he does is incredible. He’s so calm about it as well, he makes it look so easy. He nutmegs everyone! Luckily, I’m on his team for small-sided games usually, but he nutmegs everyone. I don’t know how he does it, but he does it! He’s got to be up there with the best.”
Hopefully Anderson will return to somewhere near his best whenever Premier League action resumes. West Ham certainly need him,
David Moyes’s side are currently in real relegation trouble. And a fully fit and firing Anderson will stand the Hammers in good stead.
The Brazilian has what it takes to make a huge difference for West Ham this season. He just needs to step up and produce.
