Match Preview – Huddersfield Town v West Ham

Manuel Pellegrini’s side will be looking to make it back-to-back wins in the Premier League for the first time since January 2017, as West Ham take a trip up north to The John Smith’s Stadium.

Huddersfield registered their first win of the season on Monday, grinding out an important 1-0 victory against fellow stragglers Fulham.

The Hammers will go into the weekend full of confidence, looking to build on their excellent 4-2 triumph over Burnley on Saturday.

When the sides met last season, it was West Ham who got the better of David Wagner’s side, winning 2-0 at home before an emphatic 4-1 away victory.

Manuel Pellegrini is certainly aware of the importance of this match. He said: “It’s important because we need to recover points.

“At the start of the season it was so bad, we didn’t get any points.

“We must play a complete performance if we want to get the win.”
