West Ham surprisingly lost against Cardiff and failed to capitalise on Watford’s lost who are still four points in front of them. Even though it would be nice for them to finish eight, that doesn’t guarantee them a place in the Europa League qualifications next season, and they would have to hope that the FA cup is won by a team that already will play in European competitions. Still, the competition for that 8th spot is big, with teams like Leicester, Bournemouth, and Everton being in the mix. However, West Ham fans will be pleased that they aren’t involved in the relegation battle at this stage of the season.

The same can’t be said for Huddersfield, who are looking towards a season in the Championship. They are last, and even though a win against Wolves gave the fans some hope, things quickly returned to normal, and The Terriers lost their last two matches against Brighton and Bournemouth. Now they are simply playing for their pride and trying to figure out which players to keep for next season.

Team News

West Ham’s injury situation has been getting better and better. At the moment, they have only four players who have been out for quite a while and haven’t featured a lot this season. Winston Reid and Carlos Sanchez have knee injured, while Jack Wilshere is out with an ankle injury and Yarmolenko is unavailable due to a calf injury.

Huddersfield also have some players missing for the clash on Saturday. Adama Diakhaby has been injured for more than a month, and this game comes too soon for him. The same can be seed about Isaac Mbenza. Daniel Williams has been out for almost the whole season and featured only three times this campaign, so don’t expect to see him in this match. Depoitre missed the last two games due to a foot injury and probably won’t start here. Jonathan Hogg was out against Bournemouth but could feature against West Ham.

Prediction

Even though West Ham’s form has been shaky at best, they look convincing at home. The Hammers are undefeated in their last five matches at the Olympic Stadium and will look to continue this impressive streak. Every time they have scored the first goal they’ve won with a clean sheet, so if that happens on Saturday, then it’s probably game over for Huddersfield.

Our prediction for this match will focus not so much on West Ham’s strengths, but more on Huddersfield’s weaknesses. The visitors lost fifteen of their previous seventeen games in the league, and they haven’t scored in their last five fixtures on the road. In fact, they have scored only once away in 2019. It would be easy to predict a win for West Ham, but the odds aren’t that great. For those of you who want something more, we suggest looking at under 2.5 goals for this match. The best odds for this are 4/5 at Betfair. In addition to Huddersfield’s inability to score, West Ham have had less than 2.5 goals in five of their last six matches.

Prediction: Under 2.5 goals @ 4/5 at Betfair
