West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen injured against Liverpool

West Ham United fans will be sweating after seeing the in-form Jarrod Bowen substituted through injury at Anfield on Saturday night as the Hammers narrowly lost 1-0 to Liverpool.

What’s the latest?

The Englishman was withdrawn in the second half after being caught by the Reds’ left-back Andy Robertson and looked to be in some pain.

Speaking to the media post-match, manager David Moyes said: “It looks like something in his heel it happened in the tackle with Andy Robertson and then he ran back to the edge of the box and then went down.

How many Premier League goals did West Ham United score in the 2020/21 Premier League season?

“I was hoping it would not be too bad but what I did not like was he came off unable to bear weight so we will get him scanned and see what it is. For me, look I am not a physio but it is not an obvious looking injury to me at the moment, it looks as if he has been caught near the Achilles.”

Moyes will be livid

After regular captain, Declan Rice was deemed unavailable through illness, the blow of potentially losing Bowen too will be a major concern for the Hammers manager and fanbase.

The winger has been in sensational form since the turn of the year, scoring seven goals in his last 11 appearances across the Premier League and FA Cup and is by far the east London side’s most potent goal threat currently.

With Bowen’s 12 goals and nine assists across all competitions this campaign, the 25-year-old is the Irons’ top scorer, with striker Michail Antonio second with ten goals and nine assists.

Moyes’ side are still targeting a top-six finish in the Premier League and have European commitments to deal with, starting on Thursday as the Scotsman returns to Spain to take on La Liga high flyers Sevilla in the Europa League round of 16, having had a stint managing Real Sociedad.

However, the potential absence of Bowen will provide a major dent in the Hammers’ hopes of ensuring their campaign is a success and doesn’t fizzle out with a significant decrease in offensive threat.

Who should take Bowen's place?

Striker Michail Antonio hasn’t scored in the top-flight since 1 January whilst attacking midfielders Said Benrahma and Nikola Vlasic are yet to find the back of the net in 2022.

Although it is still unknown how long the 25-year-old will be absent, Moyes will have a major headache trying to find goals from alternative sources whilst Bowen is on the sidelines.
