West Ham United are yet to confirm their place in the FA Cup fourth round but, for the time being, attention turns back to the Premier League on Saturday afternoon and the visit to The John Smith's Stadium to take on newly-promoted Huddersfield Town.

The point against Tottenham Hotspur in their last league outing lifted the Hammers up to 15th in the table and they will want to build on that and maintain their unbeaten start to 2018.

Despite an excellent start to the campaign, it was the Irons who inflicted the first defeat on the Terriers when the two sides met for the reverse fixture back in September, but David Wagner's men have picked up recently earning a win against Watford and draws against Southampton, Stoke City and Burnley.

A defeat at Leicester City soon followed and they will want to bounce back from that with victory against the Hammers.

The hosts will be the fresher of the two teams, as apart from their third round FA Cup success against Bolton Wanderers last weekend, they have not played since that defeat to the Foxes on New Year's Day.

On the flipside, the visitors will hope to claim only a second away success of the campaign and do the double over last season's Championship play-off winners here.

James Collins may start ahead of Winston Reid who picked up a groin injury against the Shrews last weekend, while Marko Arnautovic is in line to return suffering the same setback. 

André Ayew and Javier Hernández are in contention to start upfront with Antonio Martinez also available.

Saturday's match is a 3pm kick-off and the referee is Jonathan Moss.
