Huddersfield vs West Ham Prediction and Match Preview

Huddersfield vs West Ham
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 10th November 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Kirklees Stadium (Huddersfield).

Monday’s EPL fixture against Fulham turned out to be a perfect time for Huddersfield to clinch their first win in the top fight this season. They were lucky to take a 1-0 lead and maintain it to the end of the game to scoop their first 3 points.

It is yet another home fixture for the Terriers and they surprise EPL fans with another win. They are striving to climb some spots out of the relegation zone. For this reason, they will come into this home matchup with an intention to bag another 3 points. This is even though the matchup appears hard for them to win easily.

Notably, the Terriers will be without two of their best players. Danny Williams and Erik Durm are the only injury concerns ahead of their welcome of West Ham. We could see David Wagner maintain an unchanged starting eleven from the squad he engaged against Fulham.

For the Hammers, this will not be an easy game. They are on the road without 7 of their key players. Six of the players are with injury concerns while one remains suspended with a red card. This may not end up well for the away team.

Even so, the six injuries are not new and may not really affect the performance of the Hammers. Pellegrini’s men will come into this one with high spirits after bouncing back to winning ways last weekend. They were lucky to add another 3 points to their tally by thrashing Burnley 4-2. They will strive to win in this away fixture to continue their winning spirit.

Huddersfield vs West Ham: Prediction

Huddersfield has not been enjoying a great performance this season. However, they only managed to bounce back from 10 winless games to beat Fulham last weekend. This is not a guarantee that they will get a consecutive win. They are up against a stronger team in this home matchup. If history is anything to go by in predicting the outcome of this matchup, the away team will win. In addition, the current team form favors the away team to get victory here.
