Jarrod Bowen scored the winner for West Ham against Everton today and he was full of praise for Michail Antonio after the match.
The Hammers beat the Toffees 2-1 at the London Stadium today and it was a huge three points as the race for the top six really begins to that up.
David Moyes would have been delighted at the fact that he was able to name Jarrod Bowen in his West Ham starting lineup for the Premier League clash with Everton.
The 25-year-old has been out injured since March 7th and we have really missed him over the past four weeks.
Having Bowen fully fit and firing on all cylinders for the remainder of the season will be hugely important for the Hammers
The powerful, hard-working forward was back amongst the goals at the London Stadium today. He scored the winner for West Ham against Everton. But the humble ex-Hull City ace heaped praise on one of his teammates, rather than bask in the glory himself.
Jarrod Bowen raves about West Ham teammate after win over Everton
Bowen raved about Michail Antonio after the 31-year-old put in all the hard work before the ball fell at his feet with an open goal gaping in front of him.
The 25-year-old duly slotted home.
Jarrod made sure he highlighted the job done by Antonio in the build-up to the goal though, when speaking to WHUFC.com:
“Mick did unbelievably for the goal, thankfully I saw it fall out and I thought: ‘Please don’t miss this – just score this!’ I was buzzing when it just came to me from there.”
Bowen is spot on. Antonio gave the Everton backline a nightmare afternoon.
The 31-year-old didn’t score but his all-round play was so much better today.
The goals will come but as long as he keeps making a nuisance of himself like he did for West Ham against Everton this afternoon, then that’s all we can ask of him.
Bowen’s goal against the Toffees was only made possible because of Micky’s hard work and endeavour. And it was nice to see Jarrod praise his teammate for that after the match.
