Taking to Twitter, many West Ham United fans slammed the performance of winger Jarrod Bowen as they dropped yet more points in the top four race.
David Moyes’ men took to the London Stadium against Brighton aiming to put two losses on the trot behind them and get back to winning ways, but it didn’t quite pan out that way despite a promising start.
Tomas Soucek opened the scoring just five minutes into the contest but West Ham couldn’t put the game to bed, spurning a plethora of chances throughout the 90 minutes before Neal Maupay equalised for the visitors late on.
As a result, London rivals Arsenal could leapfrog West Ham if they beat Manchester United at Old Trafford tomorrow, and Moyes will be ruing a missed opportunity to strengthen their grip on fourth spot.
West Ham fans slam Bowen…
One man who attracted criticism for his performance in parts was Bowen, with the Englishman showing a threat but also spurning opportunities to extend West Ham’s lead.
As per SofaScore, the 24-year-old missed one big chance and was also wasteful in possession, giving the ball away 18 times in total on the night.
Losing more than half of his ground duels, winning just one battle in the air and ranking in as joint-lowest rated West Ham starter with a 6.5 (SofaScore), it’s safe to say that Bowen had a game to forget.
Here’s how these Irons fans reacted to his display:
“Bowen’s finishing recently has been abysmal, we don’t deserve to win this game. Such a joke, yet again. Brighton must love playing us.”
“I think Bowen is allergic to goals.”
“Bowen is the most frustrating player to watch”
“Bowen finishing is atrocious at times. Another game where Lingard would shine Matty.”
“Bowen can’t hit a barn door”
“Is Bowen even playing @westham, so far very invisible”
“One point from nine. Nowhere near good enough. Conceding at the end of the game against 10 men, utter joke. Diop for Dawson and Lanzini for Benrahma are NEEDED for Saturday or Moyes has lost it. Also, why is Bowen such a terrible finisher now? He’s been so wasteful.”
