West Ham assistant manager Stuart Pearce has likened Jarrod Bowen to Liverpool star Mohamed Salah.

Bowen has enjoyed a fantastic season for the Hammers scoring nine goals and registering ten assists across 32 appearances in all competitions this season.

Salah meanwhile has scored 23 goals with nine assists in 26 games and is regarded by many as the best player in the world at present.

Pearce told talkSport: "The comparisons between him and probably Mo Salah, the way Mo Salah finishes where he stands the defender up and stops him and then goes again or uses the defender, you use the defender to curl the ball around into that far corner.

"And I think its just picking up a few comparisons that can help Jarrod with his game a little bit.

"Starting a run then stopping it, killing a defender in his tracks then going again, little things like that, that's why I think he still has more to come from his game.

"Good thing with him, he's got two really good feet, and the last goal he scored was with his head and he's got a really good leap on him as well.

"So all-round he can score with his head or both feet which is a sign of a decent striker and he's played up front for us as well which has been a real bonus for us as a team."
