Jarrod Bowen believes West Ham are turning the corner this season ahead of a huge match against Wolves in the Premier League this weekend.

It has been an incredibly disappointing first half of the campaign for David Moyes’ side, with our Hammers currently sitting in 17th place and arguably now in the midst of a relegation battle, which not many could have predicted.

A summer outlay of around £180m which saw the likes of Nayef Aguerd, Lucas Paqueta and Gianluca Scamacca arrive in East London to give hope West Ham would be challenging the European spots once again, but results have not been good enough as Moyes desperately seeks to turn around a very difficult situation.

There is some optimism however, with West Ham starting 2023 with a hard fought draw away to Leeds followed by knocking an in-form Brentford out of the FA Cup away from home. Those results and improved performances are evidence that a corner is being turned according to Bowen, who himself seems to be rediscovering form as we head into a pivotal moment in the season.

“Momentum is the big word,” stated the Hammers forward to the clubs Official Website. “I look at the Leeds game and we were disappointed to not leave with three points after going ahead in the second half. But it’s a tough place to go and a good point in the end.

“We then built on that against Brentford. Again, it was a tough game, but we showed a real spirit. The last two games away have been tough away games, and we have come away with a win and a draw. We’re moving in the right direction.”

There is no getting away from the magnitude of Saturdays fixture, with Wolves currently just a point behind West Ham in 19th place. A win has to be the aim for Moyes with pressure mounting on whether he should remain at the helm. A win would certainly ease that and add much needed confidence with Everton at home awaiting after, providing a big opportunity for the Scot to swing the pendulum.
