West Ham cornered Norwich with simple but effective side attacks. In the 36th minute, the net of the away team shook after the annoying suspension of Jarrod Bowen. However, the referee refused to recognize the goal because the home player was involved in the attack in an offside position.
Six minutes after the goal was stripped, Bowen was celebrated after a positional situation and a precise header from Vladimir Coufal’s cross on the right.
In the 83rd minute, Bowen hit the Norwich net again from close range after Arthur Masuaku’s cross. Initially, the referee refused to recognize the goal, but the VAR team got involved and gave the opposite result. The host’s number 20 has scored in a valid position
According to Opta , Bowen has contributed to 16 goals for West Ham in all competitions this season (8 goals, 8 assists), the best record for an English player in the top 5 European leagues.
