Bowen believes West Ham are relishing busy schedule

Jarrod Bowen says West Ham are enjoying their packed schedule ahead of their Carabao Cup trip to Manchester United.

The Hammers, in the Europa League this season, will have played six matches in 20 days by the end of September.

in the Premier League and face another quick turnaround for the Old Trafford return.



Forward Bowen said: “There are a lot of games coming up now. We’ve got the Carabao Cup, then we’re in the Premier League and then the Europa League the following week as well.

“But as players that is what we want, and we’ll go into the next game exactly the same as on Sunday.”

Bowen had to deputise as West Ham’s main striker in the absence of the suspended Michail Antonio on Sunday.

The 24-year-old, who usually plays on the right of a front three, says he is happy to fill in more centrally.

“It’s different,” he told West Ham TV. “I had a few little tastes of it last year when Michail was injured or we played a different kind of system.

“Anywhere that I play on the pitch, I love playing. It’s different, but I felt like I did as much as I could up there.”

Antonio is back from his ban on Wednesday but boss David Moyes could rest him with Saturday’s league trip to Leeds in mind.

Goalkeeper Alphonse Areola and midfielder Alex Kral are in line to make their debuts following their summer loan moves.

Issa Diop, Arthur Masuaku and Manuel Lanzini could also start along with club captain Mark Noble, cost the Hammers a point at the weekend.

Meanwhile, star Jesse Lingard says it was ‘only right’ for him at the weekend.

The England international had a successful spell with David Moyes’ side in the second half of last season.

He has since returned to Man Utd and bagged an impressive goal on Sunday as the Red Devils gained three points.

“They supported me in the loan spell and gave me a great reception, so it was only right to pay them back,” Lingard said.

“It was a great reception from the West Ham fans. I had a brilliant time here, but I had to do my bit.”

Wenger admits feeling responsible for injury-plagued duo

Arsene Wenger has revealed his feeling of responsibility for the injury-stricken careers of two former Arsenal stars, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere.

The former Arsenal boss gave many opportunities to youngsters during his tenure in north London, but perhaps two of the most highly regarded to break through were Ramsey and Wilshere.

The Wales international currently finds himself at Juventus, and whilst playing for one of the most prestigious clubs in the world on big wages might not seem like the worst thing, the midfielder struggles for regular game time as a result of recurring injury problems.

Wilshere on the other hand is currently without a club after leaving Bournemouth at the end of last season. The 29-year-old enjoyed a good run of games for the Cherries last year but is yet to find a home for the new season.


Five players who shouldn’t be their club’s highest earners


Now Wenger, who is currently in the news for his idea of a biennial World Cup, has admitted feeling responsible for how the duo’s careers have panned out.

Speaking to The Telegraph ), Wenger said. “I see more positivity. Before there was more kicking and I must say the media allowed that. The VAR has brought more respect for the offensive game.

“Sometimes the more technical guys were kicked. Why? It was not very encouraging. We have moved forward from that.

“We (Arsenal) always tried. It was a frustration sometimes. When I look back at players like (Jack) Wilshere, (Aaron) Ramsey who have been injured early in their career and when you are a manager you feel very responsible for that.”

Wenger, currently serving as FIFA’s Chief of Global Football Development, also revealed

When asked if 2016 was the last time the Football Association came calling, he said: “Yes, I think so.”

The Frenchman also praised current manager Gareth Southgate, saying he “likes” the 51-year-old.
