Jarrod Bowen missed a crucial penalty for West Ham on the brink of half time against Liverpool, with Reds goalkeeper Alisson saving his effort, relays the WestHamZone.
West Ham were dominated for much of the first half at Anfield, but the team defended well and were given a great opportunity to draw level on the brink of half time.
Bowen was taken down by Joe Gomez and awarded a penalty, but the 25-year-old saw his tame effort saved easily by Alisson.
Alisson guesses to his right…

During the half-time break, Amazon Prime pundit Eniola Aluko didn’t hold back in her judgement of Bowen’s effort.
“I mean it’s a terrible penalty,” said Aluko.
“He’s telegraphed exactly where he’s going to put it.”
Playing against Liverpool is never an easy task, but the Reds gave the ball away a few times and West Ham were simply unable to capitalise on their mistakes.
After being pegged back in the first half, the penalty seems like the perfect opportunity for West Ham to claw their way back into it.
