Instant Reactions - Huddersfield v West Ham (13/1/18)

Instant Reactions - Huddersfield v West Ham (13/1/18)

Following today's clash between Huddersfield Town and West Ham United, here are the instant reactions from both managers.

Huddersfield Town hosted West Ham United at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday January 13, with the visitors taking a four one victory on the day.

Mark Noble gave them the lead in the 26th minute, but Joe Lolley had the hosts back on level terms five minutes before the half time break. West Ham showed further improvement in the second half and added three goals to their tally with Marko Arnautovic getting himself on the scoresheet before Manuel Lanzini grabbed a brace.

It makes it five games unbeaten across all competitions for David Moyes' side, but it was only Huddersfield's fourth loss at home.



Lossl, Smith (Kongolo 71), Jorgensen, Schindler, Malone, Hogg, Mooy, van La Parra, Lolley (Pritchard 65), Ince, Depoitre.


Sabiri, Coleman, Williams, Mounie, Hefele.

West Ham:

Adrian, Collins, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Zabaleta, Kouyate, Obiang, Noble, Masuaku, Lanzini (Rice 85), Arnautovic (Ayew 83).


Hernandez, Hart, Burke, Cullen.

Speaking to the BBC's cameras a short time after match day referee Jonathan Moss blew the final whistle, Huddersfield Town head coach David Wagner explained.

'It's not about the position in the table - this is a good one - but our performance was below par, especially individually. The first three goals were more or less like own goals. We are not able to win a football match in the Premier League by doing that. It is too easy and that is why we lost. There were things which we cannot do at this level. We made three of those mistakes in one game - hopefully we will make none in the next.'

West Ham manager David Moyes in his comparative interview explained.

'We have a long way to go but the players have done brilliantly well since we came in and they did very well today. I'm really pleased with Marko Arnautovic. Everybody knew how good he was at Stoke and maybe giving him a freer role up front has given him a chance to express himself. Andy Carroll wasn't fit. We decided not to bring him to the game today because we have a game on Tuesday.'
