Huddersfield v West Ham Predictions- How do pundits reckon the Hammers will fare this weekend?

West Ham will be aiming to win back to back Premier League matches for the first time in nearly two years when they travel to the Kirklees Stadium this weekend to take on David Wagner’s Huddersfield. Several stats are on the side of the visitors- the Terriers have never won in the Premier League under the referee for this game, Chris Kavanagh and they have a poor league record in November.

On paper, this looks like an easy win for the Hammers. Town hadn’t even scored at home until Fosu Mensah’s own goal on Monday night broke that long drought- the victory over Fulham was also their first league win of the season.

Here are the pundit predictions for this HTAFC-West Ham clash on Saturday afternoon

Mark Lawrenson: Lawro has got 4 of his 11 predictions for West Ham right this season, and has gone for a 1-1 draw this weekend. He says Huddersfield will be “full of confidence” after their win over Fulham and says West Ham “blow hot and cold so it is difficult to know what to expect from them”

Lawro’s celeb opponents this weekend, WWE stars Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre, have bucked the trend and gone for a 2-1 win to Huddersfield.

Paul Merson: Merson says West Ham “demolished” Burnley last week and that it’s clear “they are turning the corner” and will be too strong for David Wagner’s men. Has gone for a 2-1 win to the Hammers.

Michael Owen: Owen reckons that West Ham may have that “additional touch of quality that the Terriers lack” and says if he was betting on this clash, he’d go for a West Ham draw no bet.

Robbie Savage: Savage doesn’t think there’ll be too many goals in this one and has predicted a 1-0 win for the Hammers.
