Bowen’s brace earns Team of the Week nod

Having bagged a brace against Premier League leaders Manchester City at the weekend, Jarrod Bowen is set to run rings around virtual defenders on EA SPORTS’ FIFA 22 once more, having once more been named in the Premier League ‘Team of the Week’!

The No20 was superb in the Hammers' 2-2 draw with Premier League leaders Manchester City at London Stadium on Sunday afternoon, taking two half-chances in the first half superbly, and frequently running in behind the visiting defence with menace.

That result helped West Ham captain Mark Noble sign off his 18-year home career with a positive result, as well as keeping the Irons in contention to secure back-to-back top-six finishes and UEFA Europa League football, now dependent on final-day results this weekend.

Bowen’s second Team of the Week Item this season takes the Hammers’ tally of Special cards in FIFA 22 up to 18 for the game, with the winger’s ‘Europa League Road to the Final’ card – upgraded up to 89 as the Irons reached the semi-finals this year – still his leading presence in a FIFA title.

Nevertheless, Bowen has received another in-game Team of the Week ‘in-form’ card, boosting his standard rating within FIFA Ultimate Team up to 84 from an initial 78.

The forward’s FIFA card now boasts a fearsome range of attacking attributes, including a dribbling rating of 85 (up from an initial 79), shooting rated at 82 (up from 74), pace rated at 84 (up from 76) and passing up to 82 (from 73).

West Ham United fans will be able to collect Bowen’s latest Team of the Week card in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team packs as of 6pm on Wednesday 18 May. The card will be available until 5.59pm on Wednesday 25 May.
