I checked the other day and it’s been just over six years since I had a match report up on Kumb.com. I suppose you’re wondering where I’ve been?

Player Ratings

Adrian San Miguel Del Castillo
Not a great deal to do, especially in the second half. Little chance with Huddersfield's sole goal.


Pablo Zabaleta
Relatively untroubled today and a solid shift at right back.


Aaron Cresswell
One of those perhaps guilty of sitting off goalscorer Lolley before he struck the fatal blow. Otherwsie solid.


Angelo Ogbonna
A busy opening half but he helped keep a lid on everything the Terriers threw at West Ham after the break.


James Collins
As always, put some big tackles in at vital moments.


Cheikhou Kouyate
Once again very hit and miss at the heart of the Hammers midfield, but did have a hand in Arnautovic's goal 11 seconds after the restart with a neat flick on.


Pedro Obiang
Went about his business quietly and effectively - and the passing was a little mroe accurate this afternoon.


Mark Noble
It's probably no coincidence that West Ham's recent positive run has coincided with Noble's reintroduction to the first team. Took his goal well, too.


Arthur Masuaku
Not one of his more notable outings, although he has set the bar particularly high in recent weeks.


Manuel Lanzini
Two goals to his name, Manu was simply too good for Huddersfield today.


Marko Arnautovic
Clearly loving life at the moment - he may have ven smiled at one point last week. Took his goal superbly and was particularly unselfish when setting up team mate Lanzini for the third.



Substitutes

Andre Ayew
(Replaced Arnautovic) Gave MotM Marko a much-needed rest - though has little time to make his mark.


Declan Rice
(Replaced Lanzini) More valubale match minutes and experience for young Declan.


Joe Hart
Did not play.


Reece Burke
Did not play.


Josh Cullen
Did not play.


Javier Hernandez
Did not play.
