Felipe Anderson's strike earns West Ham a draw after Huddersfield's quick start | Soccer

There were few goals in West Yorkshire throughout the season, though it was clear in the first few minutes of the match that it would not be another terrible stalemate. With two porous defenses, it was a surprise in the end that only two goals were scored. Huddersfield, however, is disappointed by the chances he has created and missed that he has not scored all three points.

"We played very badly in the first half," said West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini. "We made a few changes and improved in the second, although not enough to win the game. Therefore, a draw was the right result. We had to try something different, even though we had played in the last few minutes with 10 men when Ryan Fredericks injured his ankle. It would have been a greater risk to continue in the same way. "

Huddersfield manager David Wagner said it was a frustrating afternoon for the home side's holders to stay in their last three games. "We were the team that created the big opportunities, we beat the post office and the bar, we were out of luck. We had dangerous situations but could not get the finishing touches. "

Steve Mounié almost scored after two minutes when he sent a header from a corner from Aaron Mooy. Lukasz Fabianski came to the rescue of the visitors and pressed the ball to the crossbar. Seconds later, West Ham stormed down the field – a delightful pass from Grady Diangana that hit Marko Arnautovic clearly. Jonas Lössl was only able to thwart him.
