West Ham might’ve crashed out of the Carabao Cup against Tottenham but Jarrod Bowen and Nikola Vlasic came away with huge plaudits.
The Hammers were beaten 2-1 in North London as David Moyes’ side were eliminated at the quarter-final stage.
First-class finish that from Bowen. Outstanding really. It’s a touch of genius from him.
Meanwhile, 24-year-old Vlasic’s 7.30 Sofascore rated display earned plenty of praise from supporters on social media.
Nikola Vlašić has been very impressive so far for West Ham. Always looking to make things happen in the final third through dangerous crosses into the box and composure in tight areas. Beginning to show his qualities.

Nikola Vlasic was incredible last night! His pace, skills & strength were causing Spurs so many problems, as well as the fact he ran his socks off from the start.
Definitely deserves a start on Sunday and with Antonio having COVID, he should slot in perfectly.

READ WEST HAM VERDICT
Superb yet again from Bowen.
The former Hull City man is coming to the fore in a big way this season and is currently providing the level of consistent performance Vlasic longs for.
Despite making a slow start to life in East London, the Croatian certainly possesses plenty of quality and displays such as this act as a welcome reminder for supporters to remain patient.
