Jarrod Bowen says that the clubs eyes are on the top-6 following our excellent 2nd half display to beat Spurs on their home turf last night.

West Ham had to come from behind once again, a regular theme it appears this season, to stun our bitter rivals with goals from Bowen and Ward-Prowse enough to take the points to east London, after Romero had given the hosts the lead in the 1st half, which was deserved.

David Moyes’ side were 2nd best in the opening period, with Spurs keeping our Hammers’ back to the wall as we struggled to get any real foothold on the game. Despite their dominance though, the well placed Romero header was the difference at the break, and West Ham had to respond.

And that we did.

Immediately from kick off West Ham looked a different beast, playing a high tempo and press that Spurs simply couldn’t handle. Bowen fired in the equaliser just 7 minutes into the half, before Ward-Prowse fired in after the initial shot hit the post – which was reward for the hard work our Hammers put in.

After that Moyes’ side continued to fight, while Spurs struggled to get back into it. The match finished with West Ham deservedly winning, and once again getting one over on our rivals north of the river.

Goalscorer Jarrod Bowen couldn’t contain his delight after the match, and now says that the sights are now on the top 6 with the fixtures approaching.

“That’s what it takes to win against a top side,” said the England international to the clubs Official Website. “Those are the standards and this is what it means.

“We want to enjoy these moments across the whole Club. This is a massive statement and to get results in the Premier League, you have to play like that and hold onto those three points. Credit to everyone, we worked to a man.

“We were a goal down and we were still in the game but I think we were a couple of yards off the pace in the first half. Tottenham are a really good side, take nothing away from them, but we showed them in the second half what we’re about as well.

It was, in a way, a classic West Ham performance. We’ve shown some quality on the ball and we’ve come away with three points.”

“The away end was unbelievable. To hold on in the end and take three points, especially after the weekend, I think we needed a reaction. A couple of wins in this tight schedule takes us up into those top six places so we have to keep doing it.”

The Hammers forward was also and understandably thrilled to score in front of the passionate travelling fans, knowing what that result means.

“It’s poetry to score those goals in front of the away support,” added Bowen. “It’s the best feeling. I didn’t know how the ball was going to drop to me and I thought it could go anywhere but, thankfully, it went in. You go into the away end and see the scenes and it was even more for Prowsey’s goal too.

“At the final whistle, we had it as well. We weren’t good enough in the first half and we accept that. But to dig in the way we have done, we showed some proper character. Celebrating with the fans after, we’re all over the moon.”
