West Ham United produced their most impressive performance of the season to thrash Huddersfield Town 4-1 and continue their rise up the table as the Premier League relegation battle became all the more hard to call.

Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic were expected to fire the Hammers up to the top half of the table. The 28-year-old played Lanzini through before the midfielder slotted the visitor's third.

West Ham are yet to recover from the loss of Dimitri Payet, but the Swiss winger and playmaker could help replace the missing contributions of the French star given their similar skill set.

The Austria worldwide 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.

However, it was West Ham who broke the deadlock just before the half hour after a mistake by Lolley from Lossl's short goal kick.

A long ball from Angelo Ogbonna was flicked onto the Austrian by Cheikhou Kouyate, he lifted it over Tommy Smith and lashed beyond Lossl to restore West Ham's lead. Noble was the first to react and won the ball, drove forward and smashed home to make it 1-0 to West Ham.

The second half blitz was completed five minutes later when Arnautovic broke from the halfway line and found Lanzini who blasted past Lossl from the centre of the area.

West Ham United manager David Moyes has targeted 's Scott Arfield for a January transfer.

Brady wrote in the Sun: "One problem for a team in our position is that to attract the highest-calibre players, we need the promise of big things to come".

"I'm really pleased with Marko because everybody behind the scenes told me he hadn't performed since he came", Moyes told the BBC's Final Score programme.
