West Ham United hit four past Huddersfield Town

West Ham United hit four past Huddersfield Town

West Ham United completed the season sweep of Huddersfield and unfortunately won't play them again, at least in the Premier League, for the rest of the season.

However, Joe Lolley - who was part of the costly error at the back - leveled the scores five-minutes before the break with a sumptuous strike.

For the third successive away game, Arnautovic found the back of the net for the Hammers, his latest strike coming 11 seconds into the second half at the John Smith's Stadium.

The maverick Austrian turned on the style at the John Smith's Stadium in the second half, scoring West Ham's decisive second and laying on another couple for Manuel Lanzini as David Moyes' men hoisted themselves up to 11th spot.

The visitors restored their lead just 12 seconds after the restart, Arnautovic showing great skill to knock the ball past Smith before firing beyond Lossl. And to put an exclamation point on a banner second half day, Arnautovic and Lanzini connected once again for the Argentine's brace just five minutes later in the 61st.

West Ham, now with a stranglehold on the game, went further in front, with Arnautovic the architect this time.

Romero will fight for an interim strap with the victor facing Whittaker in a unification bout later in 2018. The news was first reported by ESPN's Brett Okamoto and later confirmed by the UFC early Saturday morning.

The Austria worldwide created the opener for Mark Noble midway through the first half, only for Joe Lolley to level things up with his first league goal of the campaign.

Three soon became four as Lanzini and Arnautovic ran riot in the final third, with the Austria worldwide using his pace and power to steam into the box before Lanzini latched onto the leftovers to fire the ball into the roof of the net in the 61st minute.

- Huddersfield have conceded seven goals in their last two Premier League games, this after conceding six across their previous six.

Brady wrote in the Sun: "One problem for a team in our position is that to attract the highest-calibre players, we need the promise of big things to come".

Arsenal legend Martin Keown says he has been told West Ham United boss David Moyes is very hands-on on the training ground and admits he was anxious the former Manchester United manager would be too intense for the Hammers.

It took this mistake to lift the fixture out from its unproductive period of cat and mouse, and Wagner's team began to play more like a side with home advantage. Moyes will hope the joy continues next Saturday against Bournemouth.
