Jarrod Bowen injury latest ahead of West Ham’s clash with Sevilla

An injury update on West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen has emerged ahead of the Hammers’ meeting with Sevilla.

West Ham will face off with Sevilla in the first of two Europa League Round of 16 ties on Thursday the 10th of March. The first leg will take place in Spain, with West Ham at home later this month.

Sevilla, though, are no pushover and have dominated this competition in the 21st century.

Julen Lopetegui’s side are currently 2nd in La Liga and boast the best defence in the Spanish top-flight this term, conceding just 18 in 27.

It is added that West Ham confirmed on Sunday that an initial scan revealed no serious damage to Bowen’s achilles, but he is still suffering from significant swelling:

Given Bowen has been one of West Ham’s biggest attacking threats this seaosn, him missing out vs Sevilla would be a huge blow.
