‘I’m A Big Fan’ Premier League Legend Names Two West Ham Stars In His Team Of The Week

Former Premier League manager Harry Redknapp has named West Ham United superstars Vladimir Coufal and Jarrod Bowen in his team of the week with BetVictor.

He praised Coufal’s ‘key’ performance against Sheffield United at the week, pointing out his defensive solidity and ability to get forward as his best attributes.

Meanwhile, the former Portsmouth and Southampton head coach claimed that he is a ‘big fan’ of Bowen, citing his excellent finishing ability and cool head when presented with opportunities.

However, the Hammers were not the only team to have more than one player in Redknapp’s team of the week. Aston Villa (Moussa Diaby and Ollie Watkins) and Luton Town (Tom Lockyer and Alfie Doughty) also had multiple entries in the XI, as they defeated Brighton and Hove Albion and Everton on Saturday afternoon, respectively.

What did Harry Redknapp say regarding the West Ham players in his team of the week?

Speaking on Vladimir Coufal’s performance, Redknapp said: “It was a comfortable win for West Ham at the weekend and Coufal was key. He’s been a great servant for the club since he signed, and you always know what to expect from him. He’s solid defensively but will get forward too, he set up the opener at the weekend.”

Meanwhile, when asked about Jarrod Bowen, the 76-year-old stated: “I’m a big fan of Bowen, he’s back in the side again. I mention it all the time but he’s such a goal threat, such a great finisher inside the box.

“That finish from him was so classy, so composed. Just a side foot finish in the corner, too many players try and burst the net when they get a chance like that.”

Who else was in Harry Redknapp’s Premier League team of the week?

Redknapp’s full Premier League team of the week for game week seven is as follows: Alisson (Liverpool), Vladimir Coufal (West Ham United), Tom Lockyer (Luton Town), Joachim Andersen (Crystal Palace), Alfie Doughty (Luton Town), Jarrod Bowen (West Ham United), Martin Odegaard (Arsenal), Nicolas Dominguez (Nottingham Forest), Miguel Almiron (Newcastle United), Moussa Diaby (Aston Villa), Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa).
