After a successful weekend with our Oddsbible football selections, our man Danny Archer has previewed the Monday Night Football match live on Sky Sports tonight as winless West Ham take on unbeaten Huddersfield.
West Ham (Evens Unibet) vs Huddersfield (3/1) Draw (5/2).
It's been an inauspicious start for Slaven Bilic's West Ham who find themselves rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table following three abject performances. A 4-0 drubbing by title leaders Manchester United at Old Trafford on the first day of the season laid bare the Hammers' continued struggles at the back despite the addition of England no.1 Joe Hart and Pablo Zabaleta.
After finding themselves 2-0 down in their next match against Southampton, Bilic's men launched a spirited fightback courtesy of a Javier Hernandez brace to grab what looked like an excellent point at St. Mary's. However, defensive frailties again cost the East London outfit who gave away a penalty in the last minute which was ruthlessly dispatched by Charlie Austin. A disappointing 3-0 defeat to Rafa Benitez' Newcastle in Gameweek 3, in which West Ham looked devoid of ideas, has already seen calls for Bilic to follow Crystal Palace boss Frank De Boer and be shown the next exit door so early in the season.
However, tonight is the Hammers' first home game of the season at the London Olympic Stadium and we can expect a lively atmosphere after such a dismal start to the season.
Tonight's visitors Huddersfield has enjoyed a fine start to life in the Premier League. Winners of the Championship play-off last season over Sheffield Wednesday, manager David Wagner recruited well over the summer with Steve Mounie, a £11.7 million signing from Montpellier scoring twice in the Terriers' 3-0 win at Crystal Palace and Aaron Mooy joining permanently for £8 million from Manchester City.
Huddersfield them edged out fellow Premier League new boys Newcastle United courtesy of a sublime Aaron Mooy strike in their first home game of the season, before then holding Southampton to a 0-0 home draw in Gameweek 3.
All in all, Wagner's side have made a fine start to life in the Premier League and were electric on the break away from home at Palace. If they can put in a similar performance tonight, they could give the Hammers real trouble.
They haven't played very well recently but I think West Ham could finally get their first win of the season tonight. With this being their first game at home, Bilic will have his men ready for a huge game not just for the club but in terms of his future.
This could be a nervy night however at the Olympic Stadium so Both Teams To Score is also of interest.
