Jarrod Bowen: Leicester win shows our quality


Jarrod Bowen believes Sunday's 3-0 win at Leicester City was the perfect showcase for the quality of his West Ham United side.

The Hammers were on dominant form at the King Power Stadium, preventing the high-flying Foxes from having a single shot on target on Lukasz Fabanski's goal, and notching three of their own at the other end.

Bowen completed the scoring with his third goal in the last two games, adding to earlier strikes from Michail Antonio and Pablo Fornals to round off what he described as the ideal away day.

"Everyone, from the Gaffer, to the coaching staff, to all of us boys as well, we're all buzzing," he beamed.

"A clean sheet is the benchmark, you want to keep a clean sheet in every game you play, but to score four last week and three this week against two very good teams just shows the quality we have in this squad and where we want to be this season.

"I think it was the complete away performance. We were solid without the ball, we limited their chances and when we won the ball we looked dangerous on the break.

"We scored three goals away from home against a good Leicester side, so it's definitely the perfect away performance."

A feature of the Hammers' success against both Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leicester was the link-up between the front three of Bowen, Antonio and Fornals.

Bowen is delighted that his partnership with Antonio is flourishing and he was full of praise for the No30 after another exceptional display.

"You can see the work rate that he offers, he never stops running," he added, "Me and him have a great understanding and we're looking for each other all the time.

"On Sunday he pulled off to the back stick and what a header it was. An unbelievable ball from Cressy too. Mic is a great lad and on the pitch he is unplayable on his day."
