Lanzini, Arnautovic inspire West Ham win at Huddersfield

West Ham extended their unbeaten league run to four games with a 4-1 victory over Huddersfield Town, a win inspired by Marko Arnautovic.

The 28-year-old Austria worldwide, who can operate as a forward or as a winger, joined West Ham from Premier League rivals Stoke City in the summer of 2017 for an transfer fee reported by The Guardian to be worth £20 million.

Marko Arnautovic comes into the attack, supported by Manuel Lanzini as Javier Hernandez drops to the bench.

The win was the 200th in the Premier League for Moyes, making him just the fourth to reach that milestone following Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger and Harry Redknapp.

The Austria global created the opener for Mark Noble midway through the first half, only for Joe Lolley to level things up with his first league goal of the campaign.

Huddersfield responded well, with Lolley admirably levelling.

With the wind in their sails, West Ham pushed for a third and came within inches as Aaron Mooy cleared off the line after Lossl had failed to deal with an Aaron Cresswell corner.

Arnautovic then sent Lanzini through with a smart through ball with the outside of his foot and the Argentine slotted home confidently to make it 3-1 in the 56th.

The win moved West Ham above Huddersfield and up to 11th in the table and Moyes was delighted with the continued improvement from his team.

"It's a promise we intend to keep - but, for today, we shall have to delay being Barcelona".

"I think maybe giving him a freeer role up front has given him a chance to show other sides [to his game], and how hard he's worked".
