Huddersfield v West Ham Premier League Preview, 13th January 3.00pm
The Terriers will be looking for a positive response to their New Year’s Day drubbing at the hands of Leicester at the King Power. They have only lost one of their last home games in the top flight so they have been getting points. West Ham have pulled clear of the relegation zone with a good three-match unbeaten streak of form and this could be a pretty even contest. Huddersfield are 8/5 at Bet365 to win this with West Ham at 15/8 and the draw at 2/1* (Betting Odds were taken January 9th, 2018 at 9.51pm)
Huddersfield News and Form
The Terriers are on a four-match winless streak (D3 L1) and have collected just the one win in their last six league outings. They have dug in pretty well on home soil through with a W1 D2 L1 record at home in their last four league games. Overall they are W4 D4 L3 at home this season with only Spurs, Man City and Chelsea having won there. Just 36% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals so it is worth looking under 2.5 goals at Bet365 for a price of 6/4* (Betting Odds were taken January 10th, 2018 at 7.40pm). The Terriers have had their issues going forward and they have rustled up just the ten goals in their eleven home games, but defensively they have been pretty solid with just the twelve shipped in those eleven games. They have taken a clean sheet in 45% of their home games and 70% of their home goals have been scored in the first half of their games. They have actually opened the scoring in seven of their eleven home games in the top flight this season. Both teams not to score in this game is probably going to take some favouritism.
West Ham News and Form
The Hammers have steadied the ship under David Moyes but they still have some relegation issues hanging over them. They are W3 D3 L1 in their last seven league games which is pretty good but they haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last three which suggests that they will be vulnerable. The Hammers have just the two clean sheets out on their travels this season. The Irons have drawn their last two away games, being held at Bournemouth and then turning out a 90-minute defensive display to hold out in a 1-1 draw at Spurs. That leaves them with just the one away win for the season in a W1 D5 L6 record. They have scored at least one goal in each of their last four away games, but have only netted 13 goals in their 12 away games this season. They have conceded an average of over two goals per game on the road. In the bet365 correct score market the 1-1 draw is an 11/2 option* (Betting Odds were taken January 10th, 2018 at 7.40pm) the same a 0-0. Only Southampton, West Brom and Stoke have collected fewer away points this season than West Ham have done. A win will put them above the Terriers in the table by a point.
Huddersfield v West Ham Head to Head
The Terriers are on a three-match winning streak at home against the Hammers but they did lose 2-0 away to them this season in what was the first ever Premier League match up. In the last seven contests between the two clubs, both teams have scored in just one of those games. Even though you are looking back to the early seventies, Huddersfield are unbeaten in four at home against the Irons.
Who will win – Huddersfield v West Ham Predictions
The draw will have appeal in this one because the Terriers should be able to put a decent fight in this one on home soil. West Ham still aren’t totally convincing, certainly not out on the road, so settle for a share of the spoils.
