Since then, Huddersfield has had three draws with FC Southampton (1-1, away), Stoke City (1-1 home) and FC Burnley (0-0, home), plus that failure with Leicester City (0 -3, displacement).
After 22 rounds, “The Terriers” ranks 11th in the standings with 24 points. The balance so far has been 6 wins, 6 draws and 10 defeats. Their goal is to stay in the Premier League and it can be said that after 22 stages being played, they are in the chart, being at 4 points in Stoke City, the team that takes the first retrograde place.
For Huddersfield Town it is very important to win as many points in the next two games as West Ham United and Stoke City away because they will then play with FC Liverpool (home) and Manchester United (away) which will be much harder to get points or points. In matches played at John Smith’s Stadium, Huddersfield had 4 wins, 4 draws and 3 defeats. But the fans disappointed the fans in the last three games played in their own home, in which they lost with Chelsea (1-3) and drew with Stoke City (1-1) and FC Burnley (0-0).
The hosts are not allowed to take part in Saturday’s match against Nigerian midfielder Philip Billing, who was operated on his ankle and congolese striker Elias Kachunga, who is recovering after having undergone surgical ligament surgery. The players will be very motivated because it will be the first home game this year and they want to win, in order to rehabilitate themselves in front of the supporters, which they disappointed in the last stages.
West Ham United He is undefeated in the last 3 matches played in the Premier League, winning West Bromwich Albion (2-1 at home) and finishing with AFC Bournemouth (3-3 away) and Tottenham Hotspur (1- 1, displacement). The last game took place on Sunday in the third round of the English Cup, in which the Londoners drew away with Shrewsbury Town, score 0-0.

The team coached by David Moyes is in 22 rounds on the 15th place, with 22 points. The balance was 5 wins, 7 draws and 10 defeats. Even if they are not defeated in the last three stages, in which they have won 5 points, the “knockers” remain in the relegation area, being at a single point in the 18th position, which is retrogradating.
The WHU is undefeated in the last three away games, scoring not less than 7 goals with Stoke City (3-0), AFC Bournemouth (3-0) and Tottenham Hotspur (1-1). Betano betting offer 1.47 for West Ham scored in Huddersfield and taking into account the last outs, I will bet on this game “WHU over 0.5 goals.”
For West Ham, it would be important to win the John Smith’s Stadium in order to move away from the last three places. In the next stages, the Londoners will play with AFC Bournemouth (home), Crystal Palace (home) and Brighton & Hove Albion (away), teams with which should not normally win many points. In the tournament, which took place on September 11, West Ham United defeated Huddersfield Town with a score of 2-0, with goals scored by Pedro Obiang (72) and André Ayew (77).
The guests can not count on Saturday’s right-wing defender Sam Byram, who has a muscular rupture and the Portuguese central defender José Fonte, who has medical problems in the maleolar.
