The Hammers went into the Vicarage Road encounter on the back of three games without a win in the top flight but ensured they got the job done with a 4-1 thrashing of the Hornets.

 

Bowen had a stellar outing against Watford, registering three assists and was unlucky to not get on the scoresheet himself.

 

 

The 25-year-old set up Hammers new boy Vlasic for his first ever goal for West Ham on Tuesday and the Croatian is delighted with the winger being in top form.

 

Vlasic, who came on for the Hammers in the 85th minute, revealed that he and his fellow substitutes were discussing how much of a beast Bowen is on the pitch as he terrorised the Watford defence.

 

 

Asked about Bowen setting him up for a goal, Vlasic told West Ham’s official site: “Unbelievable.

 

“You know, even on the bench when I watching the game, I was commenting with players like ‘Jarrod! Man, he’s a beast!’.

 

 

“So now he did it again.

 

“I was thinking maybe he’ll shoot from this position but I was in the perfect position and he gave me my easy tap-in.”

 

Having got back to winning ways West Ham will travel to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace at the weekend in the league.
