West Ham: Jarrod Bowen could be fit to face Man United

David Moyes has been handed a potentially big boost ahead of West Ham‘s game against Manchester United on Sunday afternoon, with Jarrod Bowen reportedly set to undergo a late fitness test.

What’s the word?

The England international was forced off in Monday night’s win against Bournemouth through injury and missed out entirely when the Hammers bested Silkeborg in the Europa Conference League on Thursday.

However, the Irons will seemingly make a late decision on the former Hull City man on Sunday as they prepare for the trip to Old Trafford, where Moyes’ side will be looking to continue their recent upturn in form.

According to a Claret and Hugh source, Bowen has “a minor ankle injury which is, hopefully, ok but will take a last-minute fitness test.”

Worrying news for Man United

Although the winger is yet to achieve the levels he showed for West Ham last season in the Premier League when he hit 12 goals and ten assists, with only two goals and no assists to his name so far this campaign, he is still undoubtedly an important player in Moyes’ squad.

WhoScored suggests that Bowen has been the eighth-best performer at the club so far this season which shows that even when he is not at his best, he still offers a lot to the Irons, and surely it is only a matter of time before he starts finding the net with the regularity he showed last season.

Indeed, before his injury, the England international was beginning to find his footing with three goals in his last six.

Given that West Ham won at Old Trafford in the FA Cup last season, Erik ten Hag will already be expecting a tough game on Sunday when Moyes returns to his old club with the Hammers, and the potential return of Bowen will no doubt worry the Red Devils even more.

No player in the Hammers’ squad has scored more goals in the top flight this season, while only Lucas Paqueta has averaged more shots and only Aaron Cresswell has averaged more key passes per game in the Premier League, which emphasises how much of a threat he can be in the attacking third.

How many points did West Ham end the Premier League season with?

The Red Devils have only conceded one goal in their last five, and they will have to be at their best again if they are to prevent a West Ham side with Bowen starting.

Moyes will be hoping that the wide man passes his fitness test and is fit to feature in Manchester, as he could be the difference maker at Old Trafford.
