Super Eagles striker Emmanuel Dennis was on parade for Watford in their 1-0 defeat to fellow Londoners West Ham United.
The Nigerian was handed a starting role by new boss Roy Hodgson, but he didn’t have enough influence on the game.
Dennis failed to test West Ham goalkeeper, despite playing the entire minutes of the encounter at the London Stadium.
Tom Cleverley and Joshua King had the best chances to score for the Hornets, but their efforts weren’t enough to beat West Ham goalkeeper.
Bowen netted the winner for the Hammers on 68 minutes when his speculative effort from range deflected past a helpless Ben Foster.
It was tough on Watford, who looked set for a second clean sheet in a row under Roy Hodgson in a much improved defensive showing.
Watford have now suffered their 15th defeat this season in the Premier League; only once before have they lost more in their first 22 games of a top-flight campaign (16 in 1999-00).
The result lifted West Ham United back into the top four, while Watford remain in the bottom three.
