Jarrod Bowen has shared West Ham’s aims for the remainder of the season, and for the first time in a while, the club is looking up and not down. The Hammers are challenging at the top of the table and have flirted with the Champions League spots.

The winger is part of one of the best West Ham teams in recent memory. Bowen wants the club to break into the European spots, whether it be the Champions League or Europa League. This determination has been instilled into all of the players by manager David Moyes.

"“We know the quality and we know what the manager wants we have all bought into his philosophy of wanting European football. Don’t get me wrong there is still a lot of football to be played between now and the end of the season. But if we can keep winning each week and sniffing around the top six five areas that is great for us”Bowen on european qualification."

West Ham winger Jarrod Bowen is feeling optimistic for the remainder of the season and believed European football is possible for next season.

Bowen is right in saying that there is still a lot of football to be played. The Hammers have 14 Premier League games before the end of the season. Therefore there is a potential 42 more points up for grabs. At the moment, the plan is clear, keep playing well and then have a look once there are less than ten games left.

"“The manager says when we get to single-digit games we will be starting to look more and more to those European places, but right now, it is about winning as many games and keep the performance levels high.”Bowen told Talksport."

This season has broken a negative trend of being dangerously close to the relegation zone. Something that has happened in every season at the London Stadium except for one. Bowen believes that the club wants to be challenging at the top of the table and not settling for just playing for survival.

The winger thinks that the best for the Hammers is to keep their targets simple, keep performances good, and keep winning games.

"“We were fourth in the Premier League, and we want to be in the top half of the table and not just being happy with staying in the division. The aim now is to keep winning games and keep coming in from games and looking at the table in being in the top four and see where we are at the end of the season.”Bowen on West Ham’s aims."

Bowen has had an inconsistent season in terms of goal contributions. The 24-year-old has scored five goals and assisted three more in 24 Premier League games. However, Bowen has only managed one goal and one assist in his last 12 appearances in the League.

With star striker Michail Antonio struggling with keeping his hamstring intact, Bowen must step up in front of the club’s goal to realise their potential. This is not a criticism on the winger; he brings so much more to the team besides goals; Bowen provides a brilliant work-rate and defensive contribution.
