Owen predicts the victor of the clash between West Ham and Huddersfield

Wright wrote in The Sun: "With the likes of Marko Arnautovic and Manuel Lanzini in the team I think the Irons have a recipe to hit Huddersfield on the break with some success. He's my pick for first goal scorer at 13/2".

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.

Home goalkeeper Jonas Lossl did Lolley no favours when playing a short pass to him out of his penalty area.

Huddersfield responded well, with Lolley admirably levelling.

Lolley made ammends in style five minutes before halftime, beating keeper Adrian with a fine curling left-foot shot.

It is the third time in a matter of months Spartak have been embroiled in a controversy over racism. For Russia's biggest club to tolerate and then celebrate racist references of this kind is wrong.


The second half couldn't have started any worse for Huddersfield. The forward unselfishly laid the ball into the path of Noble, who made no mistake at the near post. A hopeful ball forward from kick-off was flicked on by Cheikhou Kouyate and Arnautovic showed his skills with a clever flick over Tommy Smith before firing past Lossl at the near post.

Huddersfield are doing well at the moment and will go into the clash full of confidence. The Austria global this time beat Smith to race clear into the area and again found Lanzini, who rammed home his third goal of the season.

Alex Pritchard, who signed for HuddersfieldDa for £11m from Norwich City, starts on the bench, as does loan signing Terence Kongolo, who arrived from Monaco.

Pritchard's deflected free-kick was well saved by Adrian, but Wagner's side failed to trouble him again as they slipped to a fourth home league defeat of the campaign.
