Following Chelsea’s 3-0 victory over West Ham on Monday night, West Ham midfielder Jarrod Bowen has sent a warning to Chelsea and other clubs challenging at the top of the table.
According to Bowen, West Ham’s performance against Chelsea on Monday has shown the Hammers can challenge with top Premier League teams like Chelsea.
“At 1-0, I think we were always in the game and in the second half we were pushing and pushing and just waiting for the right moment, but then they scored the second goal which was unfortunate for us, the way the [Timo Werner] shot rolled into Tammy’s feet and he puts it away,” Bowen said.
“They then scored another one straight away which kind of killed the game, so we feel like we shouldn’t have been on the end of a 3-0 defeat because we played really well with the ball and without the ball as well.
“We had a lot of chances and we limited them playing out from the back and they were just kicking it longer, which was a great credit to us, the way we pressed without the ball.
“I feel at 1-0 we were massively in the game and we just needed a goal, but it didn’t come, then they went up the other end and scored two really quickly which put the game to bed. Fair play to them, they’re a really good team and we want to be challenging up against these top teams and after the performances we’ve put in this season, there’s no reason why we can’t.”
