The Galician striker played some minutes in the Premier League, in a match in which West Ham came back with an incredible final.


West Ham received the visit of Huddersfield Town, the last team in the table. The visitors looked certain to take the points when they moved into a 1-3 lead midway through the second half. However, West Ham started better and Lanzini scored the first goal of the match from the 11 meters. 


The lead was to only last two minutes though when the Hammers allowed Juninho Bacuna all the space he needed to head home and score the 1-1. The play situation changed and Grant gave the lead to Huddersfield Town (30'). 


Manuel Pellegrini responded by bringing Chicharito on from the bench at the halftime. After the break, Huddersfield added a third with the double scored by Grant. He cut the ball onto his right and arrowed a shot beyond Fabianski's dive and into the top corner. 


Pellegrini moved the bench again and gave space to Lucas Pérez. With the Spanish striker on the pitch, came the storm. The comeback began in the 75', when Ogbonna headed after a corner kick play. 


Then, it appeared Chicharito. Nasri crossed to the back post and the Mexican striker was there to plant a diving header past Lossl. In the extra-time, Chicharito again scored the definitive 4-3 to complete the comeback and give the win to the Hammers.
