Huddersfield - West Ham LIVE: Premier League 2018-19 current score, goal updates, team news and lineups

Felipe Anderson equalized in the second half to save West Ham a point in a thrilling 1-1 draw in the Premier League at Huddersfield.

Anderson scored his third goal in two games when he scored in the 74th minute after Alex Pritchard's first-half goal of the season brought Huddersfield into the first half.

Huddersfield played some of their best football games of the season in the first half when they were beaten twice against the lumberjack. They will be disappointed not to have won the two consecutive Premier League victories.

The hammers, however, improved in the second section and built up enough chances to secure the victory.

Steve Mounie was denied his first goal of the season when goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski of West Ham brilliantly put his head on the crossbar in the second minute.

In the blink of an eye West Ham brought the offside trap to the other end, but Marko Arnautovic's shot was deflected by goalkeeper Jonas Lossl in the second half.

It was a brilliant start to Huddersfield's memorial game after a minute's silence had been marked by the Trompner's Last Post.

The Terriers took the lead in the sixth minute. Pritchard got the ball behind the skipper Jonathan Hogg at the right edge of the box, and his left foot hit the wrong foot Fabianski and rolled into the bottom corner.


Shortly after, Philip Billing's deep cross from the left eased over Fabianski and hit the back post.

Town had waited 659 minutes for their first home goal in their 1-0 loss to Fulham on Monday, but could have won three in the first 15 minutes against Hammers.

Fabianski rescued the Londoners in the 27th minute and jumped to the left to stop a shot from Mounie, who was said to have scored after being sent into the penalty area by Florent Hadergjonaj.

Huddersfield lost momentum just before half-time after left-back Chris Lowe was carried away on a stretcher due to an injury to his right shoulder. German and World Cup winner Erik Durm replaced him.
