‘Zero assists’: Paul Merson makes international claim about West Ham & Man United duo


Paul Merson and Clinton Morrison discuss Gareth Southgate’s England squad, including the selection of West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen and calls for Manchester United’s Jadon Sancho to be dropped.

Another new Manchester United player in Marcus Rashford was left out of the new team ahead of the 2022 World Cup, but he may have to deal with his recent injury.

In any case, Sancho looks like last year he will be at home during the international break, even though he had a job before.


Even someone like Bowen, who scored 12 goals and 12 assists last season, has yet to make a mark in the Premier League this season.

There was considerable debate over whether it was right to leave Sancho, and whether Jack Grealish is also in trouble, despite his first goal of the campaign against Wolves at the weekend.

Merson tried to say that, yes, Sancho is better than last campaign, but it is ‘not helping’ his reputation in the Premier League this season.

That was argued by former Crystal Palace striker Morrison, who thinks the ex-Dortmund star ‘should be in the team’ instead of Bowen, when he told Sky Sports News.

“Sancho is doing better than last season,” said Merson.

But when it was put to Merson that Sancho should be in the team, he responded by asking “Who? He’s scored two goals, no assists.

Morrison told him: “I think he (Sancho) should be in the team. Of course, Jack Grealish scored (against Wolves).

“One player, in particular, I think he’s a great player. But, at the moment, Jarrod Bowen is not looking amazing, so why don’t you look at Jadon Sancho as well?

“At the end of the day, Bowen is a very good player and he deserves it. It’s tough because there are a lot of good attacking players.”

In some ways, Southgate is not picking players as the likes of Bowen, Mason Mount, Jack Grealish and Harry Maguire are being called up.

But, on the other hand, Ivan Toney was rewarded for his strong start in Brentford colours.

In any case, Southgate’s call to select a number of players who have already appeared to show loyalty to them should be applauded.

But, at the end of the day, outsiders can question his calls, and this one goes to Qatar – it’s either straight to the finals or an early knock for the Three Lions.
