Huddersfield vs West Ham: 101 Great Goals prediction: Huddersfield 0-2 West Ham
Huddersfield may have secured a hugely important win over Fulham earlier in the week but a clash with West Ham could prove too much for them.
The Terriers are in the thick of a relegation battle right now but picked up three massive points against Fulham on Monday.
Though, when coming up against a side with the quality that West Ham have, they are set to struggle and we predict that to be the case this weekend.
Huddersfield vs West Ham: Who will win?
With that in mind, it will come as no surprise as to which side is the favourite here.
Yep, you guessed it, West Ham.
The visitors go into the game at odds of 6/5 and that isn’t too bad considering the quality they possess.
That means that home side Huddersfield are priced as the underdogs at 23/10.
A draw is fairly priced at 23/1o and may not be too bad of an option considering those odds.
It is also worth looking at the both teams to score market.
West Ham have played some free-flowing attacking football this season and will likely get on the scoresheet no matter the result.
Though, it is Huddersfield who you will have to worry about if you choose the both teams to score route.
The Terriers have drawn a blank in six of their games this season and have only scored five goals so far.
That means that you should probably be looking at both teams not to score, priced at 4/5.
Meanwhile, both teams to score is priced at 19/20.
Your best bet in this regard will likely be a West Ham win and both teams not to score, priced at 7/1.
It will come as no surprise as to who the favourite in the goalscorer market is.
Marko Arnautovic is priced at 9/2 to score first.
The most likely men to score for Huddersfield are Laurent Depoitre and Steve Mounie, both priced at 13/2 to net first.
Following his brilliant performance, Felipe Anderson is likely your best bet to score first with good odds of 15/2.
Huddersfield vs West Ham match preview
It’s been a bumpy start to the season for Huddersfield.
David Wagner’s side were going into this campaign as one of the favourites to go down.
Wolves and Fulham were promoted and had plenty of funds to strengthen their side, while Huddersfield just couldn’t quite match them on that front.
Their form this season hasn’t disproved that either.
They have suffered heavy losses to the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Watford which haven’t helped.
A poor draw against a Cardiff side who are also tipped for relegation also didn’t help matters.
Their first win of the season came just days ago and what a win it was.
David Wagner’s side faced off against fellow strugglers Fulham and their plethora of summer signings.
The London side have not been great this season but went into this game as the favourites.
However, it was the Terriers who came out on top following an own goal from Timothy Fosu-Mensah.
Wagner’s side were just about able to hold on for all three points which will no doubt be huge in the coming weeks.
Though, they now come up against much sterner opposition in a West Ham side with quality across the park.
Can the Hammers find their spark again?
It’s been very much a mixed bag for West Ham this season.
The Hammers have produced some top quality performances and got themselves some big wins throughout the season.
There have been dips in form dotted throughout the campaign too.
They started the season with four consecutive losses to Liverpool, Bournemouth, Arsenal and Wolves.
They then got their first three points of the campaign against Everton in a brilliant 3-1 win.
Then came huge performances against Chelsea and Manchester United.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side stepped up against Maurizio Sarri’s side and came away with a deserved 0-0 draw.
It was the next performance that would have everyone praising West Ham, however.
That is because they beat Manchester United 3-1 at home in what was a huge win.
The confidence was flowing, fans thought they may finally start pushing towards the top six.
That wasn’t to be the case, however, as they went winless in three.
A disappointing loss to Brighton came first before another to Spurs, then drawing with Leicester.
They finally got themselves back to winning ways on Saturday when they beat Burnley 4-2 during a thrilling encounter.
They may have left it late, but the three points were all that mattered.
Now, they have the chance to keep the ball rolling and if their form says anything about this season, it suggests they are due another win this weekend.

Huddersfield team news
Erik Durm will not be available for Huddersfield in the clash this weekend.
Danny Williams is also said to be a doubt for the game.
Apart from that, David Wagner has a pretty decent group of players to chose from.
West Ham team news
It’s not great news for West Ham news on the injury front, as has been the case for the majority of the season.
The Hammers have been unfortunate with injuries and that hasn’t changed this week.
Manuel Lanzini and Andriy Yarmolenko will miss the game, the latter recently suffering a long-term injury and is expected to be out of action for a while.
Carlos Sanchez will also miss out through a long-term injury which could see him miss the entire season.
Winston Reid is another long-term absentee and likely won’t be back until January.
Andy Carroll and Jack Wilshere are said to be closing in on full fitness but with an international break coming up, they could be saved until after that.
Pedro Obiang had to come off after injury against Burnley but Manuel Pellegrini later confirmed it was not serious.
Finally, Mark Noble will miss the game due to suspension.
