West Ham are coming off a disappointing 2-0 defeat away at troubled Cardiff City in their previous Premier League fixture. Manuel Pellegrini’s men laboured for much of the contest and struggled to break down the stubborn Welsh outfit.

The Hammers have been great at home in recent weeks with four wins in their last five matches at the London Stadium. A win over Huddersfield on Saturday is set at odds of 1.53 while a draw is valued at 3.80.

Marko Arnautovic was a second half substitute at Cardiff and is expected to return to the starting line up. Michail Antonio has two goals in his last three home matches and could also be set to start on Saturday.

Huddersfield Town AFC Form & Team News


Huddersfield have been abysmal this season and are on course for a return to the EFL Championship. They are rooted to the bottom of the table, a position they have occupied for much of the campaign.

The Terriers travel to the London Stadium off the back of a 2-0 defeat at home against Bournemouth. Jan Siewert's men have lost seven of their last eight away matches and are valued at 6.50 to claim an unlikely victory on Saturday.

Huddersfield's major problem this season has been a lack of goals having found the net just 15 times. Steve Mounie often features as the lone man in attack but has scored just two goals this season.

West Ham vs Huddersfield Head-to-Head 


Huddersfield have claimed 12 wins while West Ham have seven victories and six draws from 25 previous meetings. West Ham have won three of the last four matches but were held to a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture at the John Smith's Stadium. Alex Pritchard and Felipe Anderson got the goals for their teams.

West Ham vs Huddersfield Match Up 


West Ham have plenty of quality going forward with the likes of Arnautovic, Felipe Anderson and Antonio, who has two goals in his last three home matches. All three men have great understanding in attack and should combine well to get the better of the visitors.

The Hammers are unlikely to face much trouble at the back as Huddersfield have been poor in attack this season. The hosts will be confident of shutting out the threat of Mounie.
