David Moyes hailed the performance of Marko Arnautovic as the manager brought up Premier League win number 200 in West Ham's 4-1 victory over Huddersfield Town.

Arnautovic was involved in all four Hammers goals at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday, the Austrian making it 2-1 just 11 seconds after half-time.

He then created two for Manuel Lanzini as Moyes' men ran riot to secure a win that lifts them up to 11th, five points clear of the bottom three.

For Moyes it brought up a significant milestone in his own career, as only Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger and Harry Redknapp are the only managers to pass the 200 win mark in the Premier League era.

Joe Hart to get first-team chances

  Joe Hart to get first-team chances West Ham manager David Moyes has told Joe Hart that the England No.1 will still have first-team opportunities with the Hammers. The 30-year-old has not played for West Ham since the backend of November with Adrian maintaining his place in the team with a string of fine performances. Hart, who was on loan at Italian side Torino last season, agreed to join the East London outfit in the hope of gaining consistent game time ahead of England’s involvement in the 2018 World Cup in Russia but a string of mistakes throughout the season thus far, has resulted in the goalkeeper losing his first-team place. However, on the back of a busy Festive period for the Hammers, which included a last-gasp 2-1 victory over West Brom and a commendable 1-1 draw with Tottenham at Wembley, manager David Moyes is keen to give Hart some more game-time. Reports have linked Newcastle with a move for the goalkeeper in the January window. However, Hart captains West Ham in the cup game against Shrewsbury on Sunday. Moyes said, via the Guardian: “Joe will play a lot of Premier League games this season as well. I keep saying it. I thought Adrián pulled off one brilliant save at Tottenham when he put a shot over the bar in the first half and he has done well in the games he has played.” “I am sure he is not overly happy with it but Joe is a top professional. I’m sure he’s had an understudy to him for 90% of his career and I think he’s acted in a really good manner. I’ve no doubt Joe will play Premier League games between now and the end of the season.

The Scot, however, was keen to focus on the inspired form of Arnautovic.

"I'm really pleased with Marko Arnautovic," he said. "Everybody knew how good he was at Stoke City and maybe giving him a freer role up front has given him a chance to express himself."

When pushed on his own record, Moyes added: "To be in that position, alongside those great managers, is good and I'm just glad I have managed to win a few."

The win boosts West Ham's survival hopes but Moyes is still keen to add new players to his squad to help them stay out of trouble.

"The board know - and they want to add a few players - it's just the difficulty of the month," Moyes continued. "We want to add players if that is possible.

"We have a long way to go but the players have done brilliantly well since we came in and they did very well today."

Huddersfield boss David Wagner rued a display littered with sloppy mistakes as the Terriers saw their winless league run grow to five matches.

The German bemoaned a "below par" performance from his side and knows things have to improve quickly if they are to remain at a safe distance from the bottom three.

"It's not about the position in the table, it's about our performance today and we were below par," he said. "We had too many players that were below par, but we have to accept it because they're humans.

"We made too many easy mistakes which you can't do at this level. We have to do it better than we did today and we've done it in the past. We know what we've done wrong today."

Chelsea consider move for Marko Arnautovic .
Chelsea are considering a move for West Ham United striker Marko Arnautovic, according to ESPN FC. The Premier League champions are in the market for a new forward and it looked like they had Andy Carroll as their prime target but his injury means that they’ve had to turn their attention elsewhere. They’ve been linked to the likes of Peter Crouch, Islam Slimani, Edin Dzeko and Ashley Barnes in recent weeks and now, the latest name being touted around is Arnautovic. The Austrian international joined the Hammers in the summer for around £25 million and after a slow start, he’s hit a purple patch of form in which he’s scored six goals and had three assists in his last eight Premier League games. It’s highly unlikely that West Ham would sell the 28-year-old as he’s their main goalscoring threat at present, so it’d take a huge offer to even get them to think about a sale.
