Jarrod Bowen shines after Jurgen Klopp admits he likes him 'a lot'

Jarrod Bowen showed Jurgen Klopp what he can do in West Ham’s 3-2 win over Liverpool on Sunday. The Reds’ boss admitted he’s a fan last week.

Liverpool did not play well against West Ham United. They struggled to create too many chances but more importantly, the Hammers consistently worried them at the back.

In the end, all three goals in the 3-2 defeat were weak to concede. The team won’t be happy with that.

But at least there was an interesting performance on the opponents’ team. Jarrod Bowen caught the eye right in front of Jurgen Klopp – a manager who supposedly wants to sign him.

Klopp admitted last week that he likes Bowen ‘a lot’. It’s particularly notable because the Athletic claims Liverpool considered signing the player in the summer.

They mentioned a possible £35m price tag. That seems cheap to us and after Sunday, we think Bowen would surely cost more.

Bowen pressed like mad in this game and while he didn’t win any tackles in the end, Liverpool will like his work-rate. He kept up with Andy Robertson – and that’s no easy task.

But it was on the ball that will impress Liverpool. Bowen finished this game with two assists, both coming in the second half.

His first assist was a result of some excellent running through the middle of the pitch. Liverpool won’t be impressed with their defending but Bowen was tough to stop.

As he powered through, he played a perfect pass for Pablo Fornals to finish. It was the kind of transition goal that Liverpool love.

And then Bowen gets credit for West Ham’s third. He swung a very dangerous corner to the back post for Kurt Zouma to win – an excellent delivery that any team would want.

So Liverpool won’t have ‘liked’ the performance, really – it cost them three points, after all. There’s no doubt that Bowen impressed them, though.

If Liverpool do have eyes on Bowen, you can imagine they’re seriously considering a move after this one.
