The defeat raises several questions, but one West Ham player was indeed ‘a shadow of himself’

    Erling Haaland’s double was enough for Man City’s successful start of the season. West Ham’s hardly get the ball in the midfield and even during that rare opportunities the Hammers could not tie up enough pressure on Manchester City’s defence. Eventually, Moyes team enjoyed only a single shot on target.

    Though most players did not manage to show their best, one of them has indeed unpleasantly surprised the fans. It was a tough afternoon for Jarrod Bowen.

    This how Malik Ouzia from the Evening Standard characteraized Bowen’s performance:

    ‘Tore City apart here only three months ago but hardly had a kick today.’

    West Ham have one week to work on mistakes before they meet the PL’s newcomers in the face of Nottingham Forest.
