West Ham winger Jarrod Bowen has admitted that Sunday was a bad day for the club but things will be put right going into a busy schedule.
Our Hammers lost 4-1 to Aston Villa at the weekend, throwing away a chance to go 5th in the Premier League – which was a big blow for all connected with the club, especially off the back of a positive start to the season.
It feels for many like a reality check and one that the players and staff need to address, following a significant confidence loss at the hands of Villa.
Bowen, who was on the scoresheet once again, has confessed that the defeat hurt, but he has stated that the loss will be put right to get the campaign back on course.
“It was an awful day from all of us and it’s something you don’t want to be on the back of, especially conceding four goals,” Bowen told the clubs Official Website.
“It’s really disappointing and like I said a poor performance from us. It’s done now, the good thing is that there are a lot of games coming up for us, so we could have Sunday night to be down about it but Monday brought a new week.
“We go to Greece in midweek before we go back to the Premier League, and like I said we have a lot of games to put it right.”
West Ham face Olympiakos on Thursday night, which presents a big chance to get back to winning ways and lift the mood ahead of Everton at the London Stadium on Sunday.
“When you lose a game, the next game you want to win, of course,” added Bowen.
“You go into every game wanting to win, but when you come off a result like Sunday’s the main thing is to put it right in the next game. That’s what we’ll be working towards for Thursday.”
