West Ham – Huddersfield : Preview & Prediction
Unbeaten in six home games in all competitions (G4, E2), it is expected that West Ham will win a victory here over an inferior team like Huddersfield, which is at the bottom of the Premier League (PL) standings. . The match will be decided in case West Ham opens the scoring, since each game in the previous sequence where the hammers score the first goal ends with the team coming out victorious without conceding goals against.
By extension, eight of their last nine home victories in official games saw West Ham score two or more goals and, as such, three of their last four home wins have seen West Ham win with a ‘disadvantage’ of -1 .
Huddersfield still can not score as a visitor in this calendar year and also, the terriers record only one goal in their last eight official away games (E1, P7). Surely there is only one way in which this match can end, especially since those eight away games have produced a global score of 14-1 against Huddersfield.
If it’s any consolation for Huddersfield fans, more than two thirds (nine) of the 13 open game goals he has received in that sequence have not arrived until after the 60th minute, implying that the worst enemies of the game visitor set are two: the low concentration in the final moments and its little offensive power.
Players to watch: The last two goals scored by Declan Rice (WHU) were the first goal of the match, while the last two of Michail Antonio (WHU) were the last.
Meanwhile, Steve Mounié was the last Huddersfield player to score a winning goal for his team.
Statistics to consider: West Ham have received the first goal in seven of their last nine official matches.
Despite their position, four of the last five Huddersfield games have produced less than 2.5 total goals.
None of the three previous matches between both teams in the top flight have ended with a team leading both at halftime and at the end of the game.
