Regarding Jarrod Bowen’s availability for this Thursday’s pivotal game at the Bay Arena versus Leverkusen, West Ham’s optimism are growing. The winger is set to get a scan, as revealed to Claret & Hugh yesterday by a trustworthy insider at West Ham.


During West Ham’s valiant 2-1 Premier League victory over Wolves, the Irons’ top scorer sustained an injury and was clearly uncomfortable before being replaced.


Nevertheless, despite early worries about “bruising,” West Ham’s staff is becoming more upbeat. One of the club’s prominent figures said to Sean Whetstone of C&H last night, “He’s [Bowen] still feeling some soreness today.” Regarding his fitness, we won’t know for sure until Wednesday or Thursday.

With cautious optimism, manager David Moyes reiterated this view, saying, “We have to stay hopeful he’s okay.” It’s not so much a twist as a knock. A knee into his hip or back was mentioned. It’s seriously stiffening me up. I’ve encountered similar things before, and they usually linger. Hopefully, it won’t be too serious.


With such positive news coming in, West Ham is placing their hopes on their leading scorer making a comeback for this important quarterfinal matchup in the UEFA Europa League. This big of a game will require Bowen’s presence.
