Commentary
  • 90'

    FULL TIME: It's all over at the John Smith's Stadium, and it's been over in truth for quite some time. It'll feel a longer journey home for the Terriers fans as David Moyes picks up his 200th Premier League win as a manager.

  • 88'

    Huddersfield fans try to rally their players for one final push for a consolation but West Ham have been perfectly set up to score more on the counter-attack.

  • 85'

    Substitution: You sense the Huddersfield players and fans have been wanting to hear the full-time whistle for the last 20 minutes. Declan Rice replaces Manuel Lanzini as Moyes continues to protect his prized assets.

  • 84'

    Substitution: It's Marko Arnautovic who makes way for Ayew. The forward has been the stand-out performer in his first game back from a hamstring injury.

  • 82'

    We're going to see Andre Ayew soon as West Ham play the ball nicely in a tight space.

  • 79'

    There's still time to play but some don't want to stay until the end as home supporters head for the exits. Ever since Lolley's equaliser it's been all West Ham.

  • 76'

    Booking: Aaron Cresswell is protesting his innocence but he is booked by Jon Moss for time-wasting as he carried the ball away from the goal-kick.

  • 73'

    Mooy into Pritchard and it's a lovely touch around the corner that completely bedazzles Collins, who rugby tackles the Huddersfield new boy. Free-kick in a dangerous position.

  • 71'

    Substitution: Tommy Smith is making way for Terence Kongolo. The defender will play in the centre with Jorgenson moving to right back. A first Premier League appearance for Kongolo.

  • 70'

    Pritchard puts in a good corner but it's cleared by Arnautovic as far as Malone, whose speculative volley is never troubling Adrian.

  • 65'

    Substitution: It's not the debut Alex Pritchard will have dreamt of last night but he is on in place of Joe Lolley for his first Huddersfield appearance.

  • 62'

    GOAL! Arnautovic uses his pace and power to run into the box before Lanzini takes over, cutting inside before unleashing a fierce strike into the roof of the net. That's a counter-attack goal of some quality.

  • 56'

    GOAL! West Ham are pulling away from Huddersfield as superb one-touch passing in midfield between Obiang and Kouyate feeds Arnautovic. He does a quick lolly-pop to get away from Schindler before putting Manuel Lanzini through, and he makes no mistake.

  • 54'

    Huddersfield look to reply as Van La Parra picks the ball up on the right and crosses onto the head of Depoitre but he directs his effort over the bar.

  • 52'

    Chance! Cresswell swings in a deep corner at pace that is onto the head of Ogbonna with Lossl in no-man's land, but Mooy is there on the line to hack the ball clear. A real let-off for the home side.

  • 46'

    GOAL! Ogbonna chips the ball forward from the kick-off and it's flicked on by Kouyate but the rest is just pure wizardry from Mark Arnautovic as he hooks the ball over Tommy Smith's head and belts it in at Lossl's near post.

  • 46'

    SECOND HALF: Off we go for the second 45.

  • 47'

    HALF TIME: Huddersfield 1-1 West Ham United.

  • 45'

    There will be two minutes of stoppage time.

  • 43'

    That's changed the half-time team talk for Wagner, and it's Huddersfield who are on top as we approach the interval.

  • 40'

    GOAL! What a stunning goal! Joe Lolley makes up for conceding possession in the build-up to Noble's opener as he cuts in from the right and bends an unstoppable left-foot shot beyond Adrian and into the bottom corner.

  • 38'

    Hogg invited Van La Parra onto the ball down the left and his ball into the box is good but just too high for Loley. Van La Parra wins his side a corner, and that has got the home crowd going again.

  • 37'

    Huddersfield very nearly present the ball again to West Ham high up the pitch, but Hogg gets away with it on this occasion as Mooy steps in to retain possession.

  • 34'

    Zabaleta is at the stage of his career now when he picks and chooses when he bombs forward. He's 33 on Tuesday, but on this occasion he gets forward to win his side a corner.

  • 32'

    Booking: Lanzini is scythed down when running at pace dangerously towards goal and Tommy Smith has no option. He rightly gets a card for his troubles.

  • 29'

    Huddersfield have lost 15 of the 17 league games in which they've conceded the opening goal. They need to find something to inject that self-confidence and get back into this one.

  • 25'

    GOAL! A gift for West Ham as Jonas Lossl opts to play the goal-kick out short to Joe Lolley and he is swiftly hounded out of possession by Marko Arnautovic, who lays the ball off for Mark Noble to calmly slot the ball in at the near post.

  • 23'

    This Huddersfield team look so well-drilled off the ball. So there hasn't been a single shot on goal but their approach to winning the ball is so impressive as West Ham are forced backwards.

  • 19'

    Chance! Masuaku and Lanzini combine well down the left before the ball is worked across the pitch and then through the middle for Lanzini again but the Argentine's attempts to thread a ball to Kouyate is just over-hit and runs through to Lossl.

  • 16'

    Van La Parra picks the ball on the left and swings in an inviting ball towards Depoitre. Collins is caught underneath it but Ogbonna produces a fine headed clearance.

  • 15'

    The fans rise as one to pay tribute to 15-year-old Katelyn Dawson, a local schoolgirl who was tragically killed in a bus accident this week.

  • 11'

    Lanzini looks to slide in Arnautovic but Tommy Smith manages to first force the Austrian wide before snuffing out Masuaku on the overlap.

  • 10'

    The energy of Huddersfield Town has been a real footnote to their season, it's very much the David Wagner way and they have been quick to snap in and win the ball back on more than one occasion already.

  • 8'

    West Ham are yet to get hold of the ball with Marko Arnautovic the lone man up front. He's chasing down the Huddersfield defence ferociously which is in stark contrast to those early games in a Hammers shirt.

  • 6'

    Mooy's delivery is onto the head of Schindler at the near post but there's nobody at the far stick to take advantage of the flick on. Lolley and Depoitre were caught a little flat-footed there.

  • 3'

    Neither side have been able to hold on to the ball for any period of time in these early skirmishes as Masuaku brings Ince to the ground. The Huddersfield man has been fouled many times already this season and there's another one to add to the tally.

  • 1'
