West Ham United winger Jarrod Bowen picked up a knock in the Hammers’ last Premier League outing when they won 2-0 against newly promoted Sheffield United.
It is now being reported that Bowen could potentially miss West Ham’s UEFA Europa League fixture against German club Freiburg in midweek.
Sources from inside the club have reported that the Englishman’s injury could be a minor one which is not expected to keep him out of action for too long. It is also reported that he may not miss any time due to the injury.
“Bowen was carrying a slight limp as he was subbed in extra time against Sheffield United but our sources claim there is no problem with the player,” stated Hammers website Claret and Hugh.
Even though Bowen has not been injured seriously, it is likely that the English winger will not be available for the Irons’ Europa League tie as a precautionary measure.
But it is expected that he could return to the matchday squad for the Irons in their crucial Premier League fixture against Newcastle United at the weekend.
The 26-year-old has had a solid start to the season, having contributed with five goals and one assist in seven Premier League games. He will surely be looking to keep this form on and stay fit to help the Hammers stay high up in the league table.
The winger also solidified his place in West Ham’s history after scoring the winning goal in last season’s UEFA Europa Conference to win the Irons their first-ever European trophy. He also managed to make it into the team of the season for the competition after scoring six goals.
Bowen joined West Ham on the deadline day of the January transfer window in 2020 for an initial fee of £18 million from Championship club Hull City.
He has since played over 140 games for the club having become an important part of the plans under manager David Moyes.
The winger started his career at local club Hereford United before joining Hull City back in the year 2014. He has also gone on to win 4 caps for his national side England.
Moyes and West Ham fans will be hoping to see the Englishman back in action as soon as possible at the London Stadium.
