Watch West Ham's Jarrod Bowen Score Twice Against Man City To Make Liverpool Dream

Liverpool fans had barely gotten over celebrating winning the FA Cup when Jarrod Bowen had them jumping for joy again at the weekend.

Less than 24 hours after Liverpool's penalty-shootout win over Chelsea at Wembley, all eyes turned to the London Stadium where West Ham United were hosting Manchester City in the Premier League.

City went into the game three points and seven goals ahead of Liverpool in the EPL title battle.

But Jarrod Bowen scored twice to give West Ham a 2-0 lead at half time.

Bowen's first arrived on 24 minutes when he raced onto a hooked Pablo Fornals pass before dribbling around City keeper Ederson.

City were dominant in terms of possession with 78% of the ball in the first half.

But with Fernandinho playing at center-back in a patched-up defense, Pep Guardiola's men looked vulnerable.

That vulnerability allowed Bowen to pounce again seconds before half time.

Michail Antonio flicked a pass to Bowen, who was played onside by Oleksandr Zinchenko, and he held his nerve to drill a low shot past Ederson.

Had West Ham held on to win, the chances of the Premier League title being decided by goal difference - or even a playoff between Liverpool and City - would have rocketed.

But City stormed back in the second half to earn a 2-2 draw courtesy of a strike from Jack Grealish and an own goal by Vladimir Coufal.

That result meant that City will be champions of England as long as they beat Aston Villa on the final day.

City almost stole all three points at West Ham, but Lukasz Fabianski saved a late Riyad Mahrez penalty.
