It appears they and opponents West Ham could be heading in opposite directions with the east Londoners leapfrogging them in the table after extending Huddersfield's run without a home win to four games.
The Hammers took the lead through Mark Noble and responded emphatically to Huddersfield drawing level through a Marko Arnautovic goal and Lanzini's further strikes.
Arnautovic's strength, skill and pace showed the talent that prompted West Ham to sign him from Stoke in July for a club record fee of around 25 million pounds.
The second half blitz was completed five minutes later when Arnautovic broke from the halfway line and found Lanzini who blasted past Lossl from the centre of the area.
A neat Huddersfield move on the right ended up at Lolley's feet, he cut inside and was given plenty of time to curl a sumptuous shot out of Adrian's reach. The Austria worldwide this time beat Smith to race clear into the area and again found Lanzini, who rammed home his third goal of the season.

Curry should be back soon and could return for Saturday's game in Toronto or Sunday's marquee matchup at the Cavaliers. So how did Thompson take the news? "I dreamed about this as a kid so it was pretty sweet", he said.
"With the second, 11 seconds into the second half, it was a very simple knock-down and we needed to be stronger and see the danger earlier".
West Ham did make it 3-1 soon after as Lanzini raced clear and fired across goal into the bottom corner.
- Huddersfield have conceded seven goals in their last two Premier League games, this after conceding six across their previous six.
The former Everton and Manchester United manager explained that starting the two together, rather than choosing one and a recognised striker alongside, was a deliberate decision.
"He is exactly the type of player that we like to work with at this club". We had too many players who were below par today. Moyes will hope the joy continues next Saturday against Bournemouth.
Pritchard progressed through West Ham's academy before switching to Tottenham aged 16 in 2009 and, after loan spells at Peterborough and Swindon, made his Premier League debut as a substitute in the final game of the 2013-14 season.
