With the win West Ham moved up to 11th in the table, while Huddersfield slip to 13th.

David Moyes recorded his 200th win as a Premier League manager as West Ham beat Huddersfield 4-1 at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday.

It's said that 4 Potters players are included in a 30-man shortlist the Hammers are looking at as manager David Moyes looks to strengthen the squad, and the Switzerland global winger is a prominent feature.

David Wagner's men hadn't put a foot wrong until Jonas Lossl's short goal-kick put Lolley under pressure on 25 minutes, with Arnautovic stealing possession and setting up Noble to slot home at the near post and register his 50th career goal.

A seventh Premier League defeat in eight games looked likely for Marco Silva's side after James Ward-Prowse scored twice, but Andre Gray set up a thrilling finale, with Doucoure eventually scoring, although video replays suggested the ball had been handled into the net.

Just 11 seconds into the second half Arnautovic fired West Ham back into the lead as the Austrian forward turned and finished brilliantly to make it 2-1 to the Hammers.

The Austria global was instrumental in the game and created the next two goals, both finished by Manuel Lanzini to give West Ham the three points.

Just seconds after the break, Arnautovic restored West Ham's lead, showcasing his technique as he hooked the ball past Tommy Smith and then drilled the ball home.

West Ham, now with a stranglehold on the game, went further in front, with Arnautovic the architect this time.

Huddersfield had the chance to grab a consolation as midfielder Alex Pritchard, who was making his debut from the bench after joining from Norwich City, had a free kick saved before Angelo Ogbonna recovered to prevent Depoitre slotting in a rebound.
