Felipe Anderson rescues West Ham point at Huddersfield

Felipe Anderson rescues West Ham point at Huddersfield”

Alex Pritchard gave Huddersfield a sixth-minute lead with a scuffed shot from 16 metres which somehow trickled past West Ham keeper Lukasz Fabianski before Felipe Anderson levelled with an opportunist 74th-minute goal.

West Ham midfielder Robert Snodgrass feels his side should be challenging much higher up the Premier League table.

Manuel Pellegrini may have been guilty of hopeless optimism when he looked up ambitiously at the top of the Premier League table four games into the present campaign but the prospect of Andy Carroll and Jack Wilshere returning to first team contention after the global break is surely cause for quiet confidence.

Huddersfield played arguably its best half of the season in the first period, twice hitting the goal frame, and will be disappointed not to have clinched back-to-back Premier League wins after beating Fulham 1-0 on Monday.

Huddersfield are the Premier League's lowest scorers. "A point on the road, we'll take it and move forward".

"Now we've got some points on the table which we need, but we know we need more, so there's some very exciting games coming up". They are always lifting us up and they know that at times it can be hard, but that we should be where we are and we're always proving people wrong. "West Ham had their chances as well, we probably had a few more, so maybe if anybody should have won (on Saturday) it should have been us".

Wagner confirmed left-back Chris Lowe was taken to hospital with a "shoulder ligament injury" after an awkward landing led to him being taken from the pitch on a stretcher.

'My first chance was a header that brought a good save.

The Londoners nearly struck again, but Diop's thumping header from Robert Snodgrass's corner was headed off the goal-line by Mooy. Fellow German and World Cup victor Erik Durm replaced him.

And Manuel Pellegrini's men might count themselves unfortunate not to have pocketed three points in the end, with Aaron Mooy to thank for blocking an Issa Diop header on the line moments after parity was restored.

"I think that we played very bad in the first 45 minutes", the Hammers boss said.

Cresswell feels that December's fixtures give West Ham the flawless opportunity to go on a winning run which would set them up nicely for the new year.
