West Ham’s 10-man injury crisis before Huddersfield

Huddersfield Town vs West Ham

There’s a big game at the Kirklees Stadium on Saturday as Huddersfield Town take on West Ham.

Will Huddersfield stay in the Premier League this season?

After 22 rounds of the campaign the Terriers are defying almost every pre-season prediction.

They are 11th in the table with 24 points on the board.

Yet David Wagner’s side are far from safe in the English top flight. They are just four points above the bottom three.

As for West Ham, David Moyes’s men are 15th in the division with 22 points on the board.
