Liverpool team-mates Trent Alexander-Arnold and Mohamed Salah are leading the race for the Castrol Playmaker Award for the most Premier League assists this season, while the chasing pack are close behind.
Alexander-Arnold leads on 10 assists, with Salah one behind, but the latter's departure to the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) is set to shake up the standings.
Right-back Alexander-Arnold remains on course to beat his career-best total of 13 assists, achieved in Liverpool's 2019/20 Premier League title-winning campaign.
West Ham winger Bowen will also back himself to have a productive spell.
A meeting with Manchester United will hold little fear given he set up a goal in this season's reverse fixture.
Leaders Man City are on a run of 11 consecutive wins and, with fixtures against bottom-half sides Southampton and Brentford coming up, their Brazilian forward Jesus has a good opportunity to close the gap.
Man Utd star Paul Pogba was the early front-runner for the 2021/22 Playmaker Award after becoming the first player in Premier League history to reach seven assists in the first four matches of a season.
But a groin injury suffered in early November means he has been unable to add to that total since. However, he has returned to training with his team-mates and so may soon be able to resume his bid.
