West Ham United winger Jarrod Bowen has spoken of his frustration following the clubs latest defeat at the weekend to Brentford.
Our Hammers fell to a 3-2 to defeat at the Gtech Community Stadium, despite leading at half time. A result that makes it five defeats in the last seven matches for David Moyes’ side in the Premier League.
“We let it crumble and they won the game,” admitted Bowen to the clubs Official Website. “It was a poor game from us.
“We came in at half-time 2-1 up, but in the second half it was far too easy for them. The goals were poor and we’re disappointed on our part to concede those type of goals. We weren’t strong enough to try and keep the ball out the back of the net as a whole collective.”
David Moyes side will look to put things right tomorrow night when we face Olympiacos at the London stadium in the Europa League, but Bowen admits the time is now for action rather than words.
“I think talk is cheap now,” said the England winger. “We’ve had a really poor set of results, minus Arsenal. Obviously we have to come and speak about it, but talk is cheap and it has to change on the pitch.”
A win is much needed in East London to lift the mood which has wavered in recent weeks, following a poor run of form which has seen West Ham slip into the bottom half of the Premier League table.
“We’ve got a big European game on Thursday, followed by another big game on Sunday,” added Bowen.
“Like I said talk is cheap and we have to put it right on the pitch.”
David Moyes will be hoping for a much improve performance from his side on Thursday night prior to a must win game against Nottingham Forest on Sunday – both at the London Stadium.
The next run of fixtures are crucial for West Ham and getting the season back on track, with the objective to be competing for European football once again next season.
