Jarrod Bowen’s pair of assists in West Ham’s 4-0 win over Norwich City on Sunday brought an end to what is something of an embarrassing run for West Ham forwards.

By setting up Said Benrahma’s Carrow Road brace, Bowen made it 10 goals and 10 assists in the Premier League this term, which is the first time a West Ham player has hit double figures for both goals and assists in the top-flight since Paolo Di Canio in 1999/2000.

That’s 22 years since West Ham had an attacker or striker to deliver 20 or more goal contributions in a single Premier League campaign,

On reflection, that’s a poor record to have for a club that has been in the Premier League for all but three years since 2000.

But Bowen’s incredible season in claret and blue, which has seen him score 16 goals and assist a further 11 in 49 appearances, has seen him finally end what has been something of a curse for West Ham attackers.

Since Bowen signed from Hull City in January 2020, he has scored 25 goals and provided 21 assists in 102 first-team appearances across all competitions.
