Jarrod Bowen cannot escape the expectation of West Ham fans – as his father-in-law Danny Dyer is reminding him of his duty to win the club’s first trophy since 1980.

West Ham host AZ Alkmaar in the first leg of the Europa Conference League semi-finals on Thursday as David Moyes’ men look to make this a season to remember.

Speaking on Wednesday, Bowen, who is the partner of Dani Dyer, talked of his ‘dream’ being to get to the final and score the winner. ‘It’s massive,’ said the West Ham attacker.

‘I’ve only been here three years and I feel like a fan of this club so I know what it means to the fans. I want to give them that success as well.

‘The missus’ old man is obviously on at me every week but for everyone, the whole club, it’s not been a great season but staying in the Premier League and bringing home a trophy for the fans would be a good end to a bad season.’

Bowen, formerly of Hereford and Hull, is excited at the prospect of picking up a trophy.

‘I’m just a boy with a dream that I’m still living,’ Bowen said. ‘Sometimes I look back and think about where I am. But I always demand more of myself.

‘It’s been a difficult season, there’s no denying that. The manager is the one who faces the press after every game. 

‘He’s the one who’s got to speak. But as players we know we haven’t been at been at a level.

‘I don’t want to talk too much about the final because I don’t want to seem to disrespect the opposition because we know they are a top side but we can all dream about winning a trophy.’

The final will take place in Prague on June 7 and manager David Moyes said: ‘We don’t hide away from it. I have always said I want to get to the final, but when you get to a semi-final you have another opponent that you have to respect.

‘You have to be a good side to get to a semi-final. AZ are a good side and have beaten some good sides like Anderlecht and Lazio, and they played at Ajax at the weekend, so I don’t think them coming to us will be a big fear for them. 

‘Do I want to get to a final? One hundred per cent. We will do everything in our power to do so.’
