Pellegrini To Ring In The Changes? | 4-1-4-1 West Ham United Predicted Lineup Vs Huddersfield Town

West Ham United will play hosts to Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon looking to bounce back from their 2-0 league defeat away at Cardiff City last weekend. The Hammers will get a full week to prepare for this home game and should find it relatively easy to get a favourable result against the Terriers.

Manuel Pellegrini might opt to stick with his favoured 4-1-4-1 formation and keep changes to a minimum for this encounter at the London Stadium.

4-1-4-1 West Ham United Predicted Lineup To Face Huddersfield Town

Defence

Łukasz Fabiański will start in between the sticks for the Hammers on Saturday despite conceding two goals against Cardiff City last weekend. The Polish keeper will be protected by the centre-half pair of Angelo Ogbonna and Issa Diop. Both of them have worked well together recently and has formed a formidable partnership at the heart of Pellegrini’s backline. Fabian Balbuena should be available on the bench and might come on during the contest if required.

Ryan Fredericks should get the nod to start at right-back while Aaron Cresswell features on the other side in the left-back position this weekend. As long as the West Ham defenders don’t get complacent, they should be confident about their chances of keeping a clean sheet against a team that has scored just 15 goals in 30 league matches this season.

Midfield

Declan Rice is a nailed-on starter as he takes up a defensive role in midfield once again. The duo of Mark Noble and Manuel Lanzini will play just ahead of him as they look to create some decent opportunities in the opposition half. Felipe Anderson is expected to operate on the left wing as he tries to drift in and cause a few problems for the Huddersfield Town defenders. 

Andriy Yamolenko is still sidelined with an injury so Robert Snodgrass should get a chance to impress on the right side of the Hammers midfield.

Both Samir Nasri and Michail Antonio will begin the game on Pellegrini’s bench and might come on during the clash if needed.

Attack

Javier Hernandez will lead the Hammers attack up front. The Mexican international has scored some crucial goals for West Ham this season, but his numbers seem to have dried up recently. He should still fancy his chances of finding the back of the net against the Terriers this weekend.

Marko Arnautovic could be available on the bench for this league encounter in East London.
