Huddersfield Town slumped to a heavy defeat at home against West Ham United today, with the Terriers second best across the park.

Marko Arnautovic's strike and Manuel Lanzini's brace in the second half handed the Irons all three points after Joe Lolley had cancelled out Mark Noble's opening goal in the first period.

The win takes the Hammers above Town in the Premier League table, with the Terriers four points above the relegation zone.
