In-form forward Marko Arnautovic took the plaudits after playing a big part in West Ham claiming a convincing 4-1 victory at Huddersfield Town.

The Austria international has scored six goals in his last seven appearance in the Premier League, helping the Hammers put together a run of five games unbeaten which has seen them rise to 11th place in the able - five points above the relegation zone.

And boss David Moyes believes that the big-money summer recruit from Stoke City is enjoyed himself due to a change of role in the set-up of the Irons side.

He told the club's official website: "I'm really pleased with Marko. Everybody told me he hadn't performed before I came, but everybody knew how good he was at Stoke City and that's why we paid a big fee for him.

"Giving him a freer role up front has given him a chance to show other sides to his game as well, with the effort and the way he has worked."

The Hammers are now 21.00 to be relegated this season, while they are 1.015 to avoid the drop and 34.00 to finish in the top half of the table.

Meanwhile, Moyes also admitted that he would like to add to his options before the transfer window slams shut, adding: "The board know and they want to add a few players - it's just the difficulty of the month. We want to add players if that is possible."
