West Ham battle past Huddersfield 2-0

Angelo Ogbonna of West Ham United arrives at the stadium prior to the Premier League match between Middlesbrough and West Ham United at the Riverside Stadium

Pedro Obiang and Andre Ayew scored to give West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic the flawless 49th birthday present as the Hammers beat Huddersfield Town 2-0 in the Premier League on Monday.

"This is the business that we are in but I think it was important for him and it was important to show our attitude and to show we are always with our manager".

Five minutes later substitute Ayew confirmed Huddersfield's first defeat back in the top flight.

Pedro Obiang's shot from outside the penalty area spun off the trunk of defender Mathias Jorgensen into the net. "It's my birthday and this is a great present".

Yesterday, West Ham earned its first win in the League this season.

"I'm not going to lie, Frank de Boer was in the back of my mind".

Their return to London produced a positive result with a deserved win over high-flying Huddersfield, thanks to goals in the second half from Obiang and Andre Ayew.

More good work from Antonio - this time on the opposite flank - then forced a free-kick, but Lossl gratefully gathered as James Collins' deflected header dropped tamely on the goal line following the set-piece.

The Terriers were unbeaten heading to London Stadium as the only top-flight team yet to concede in the league this season.

"I noticed he was getting a little bit exhausted after he had been away in Mexico, so it was a ideal time for Andre to come on".

Yet it claimed much concerning this game that the house side might not make them pay from the corner and when they ultimately took the lead 18 mins from completion, it was with a substantial slice of luck. I am unsure if we were nervous. "We made so many unforced errors today". Slaven's got his just rewards, as lucky as it was.

The West Ham fans booed, the Huddersfield fans sang "you're getting sacked in the morning" and even this reporter had huge doubts.
