Jarrod Bowen has said West Ham must go into the London derby against Arsenal ready to win all 3 points.
Our Hammers sit in the top 6 of the Premier League as we head into the match against the current league leaders, in the hope that a repeat of our last trip to north London when we beat rivals Spurs can be repeated.
Bowen, who has been In tantalising form so far this season – with 11 league goals already for the Irons forward, wants to focus on the positives and says this season has been a positive one thus far.
“There has been a bit of disappointment with some of the games but ultimately, we’re sixth in the league and we’re in the last 16 of the UEFA Europa League,” Bowen told the club’s Official Website.
“We’ve got the FA Cup to come as well. It has not been a bad season at all.
“There have been times when we know we can play better and be better, but we’re winning games. That’s probably the difference from last season. We played okay against Manchester United, stepped it up, and got a 2-0 win. The main thing is winning games. We’re in a business where we have to win, and this was one of those matches. We’ve done that.
“We’ve got Arsenal away next and, if you want to be in the top six or even the top four, then you need to go into games like that looking to get points.”
Bowen also highlight to the blossoming relationship between himself, Mohammed Kudus and Lucas Paqueta – with the England star shedding light on their ability to switch roles within the system.
“We’re really flexible in the positions we can play, if it’s me, Mo and Lucas playing,” added Bowen. “There were times when I was out on the left and Mo was up front, then Lucas was up front.
“If the opposition are starting to feel like they’ve got your number then you can change positions and change personnel around.”
