West Ham reduced the pressure on manager Slaven Bilic with their very first Premier League win of the season as they defeat Huddersfield 2-0.

West Ham

A deflection saw Pedro Obiang’s shot creep in off the message 18 mins from completion prior to Andre Ayew made certain of the success soon after.

For a long period of time it appeared as though West Pork’s supremacy would not be enough as they rejected a variety of good possibilities.

Their perseverance repaid, nevertheless, as their first points of the project raised them two places to 18th and also condemned Huddersfield to their initial loss.

West Ham must have gone ahead little greater than a min in when Andy Carroll went across low throughout the face of objective yet Cheikhou Kouyate was fractionally late as he aimed to slide in.

Javier Hernandez went closer moments later as the hosts made the more vibrant beginning but after Michail Antonio’s cross, the Mexican saw his shot come off the face of the crossbar using Tommy Smith.

Huddersfield took time to clear up and also although they started seeing even more of the sphere, it was West Pork that had the better chances and James Collins’ header was surrounded by Jonas Lossl.

For all the threat they positioned stepping forward, West Ham lacked a side as well as Antonio’s 20-yard drive deflected over instead of in before Kouyate missed the target when he ought to have racked up.

Aaron Cresswell’s free-kick over the upright before the break was poor, with Hernandez’s after equally as wasteful as disappointment began to sneak in.

Huddersfield’s openings were unusual yet Philip Invoicing examined Joe Hart with a relentless low drive which needed the England goalkeeper to react rapidly to maintain it out.

Just as they seemed to be extending West Pork, they virtually shot themselves in the foot as Zanka cut an attempted clearance simply wide of his own goal.

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.

Obiang was attributed with the goal yet the reality his shot came off Zanka’s back prior to wrong-footing Lossl and going in off the message indicated it would be bold of him to assert it.

Buoyed by that, West Ham doubled their benefit six mins later when Jose Fonte’s header wasn’t removed and alternative Ayew jabbed in the rebound.

Tom Ince struck bench in the closing stages yet West Pork saw out a scrappy triumph – not that Bilic will be caring just how it was achieved.
