  • West Ham vs Huddersfield Preview in Monday Night Football

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.

Defeat to Huddersfield would have left the charismatic Croat in real danger of becoming the second managerial casualty of the season, after Frank de Boer was sacked by pointless Crystal Palace Monday.

Ayew, who withdrew from the Black Stars' trip to Brazzaville recently, was brought on from the bench as a second half-substitute.

The lead was doubled six minutes later when Ayew poked home from six-yards out after Huddersfield failed to clear a corner.

West Ham should have gone ahead little more than a minute in when Andy Carroll crossed low across the face of goal but Cheikhou Kouyate was fractionally late as he tried to slide in.

Bilic highlighted his team's growing affinity for the London Stadium after this, a delayed first home fixture, owing to its staging of the World Athletics Championships last month.

Luckily for the locals, the water did not come gushing in all at once, with Adrian later tweeting that the sea " came back ". It happened in the Bahamas on Friday and Saturday, and now it's happening on the Gulf Coast of Florida on Sunday.

Despite the win and honest from the former Croatian defender, the bookies still think Bilic will be the next Premier League manager to go.

West Ham have all the right tools to set things right against Wagner's men. "I really have a feeling, and I see the players, we trained here yesterday and the day before, we like it more and more", he said.

"He deserved this because he has been under a lot of pressure of course as we all know". Times were tough, but we needed to stick together and work hard as a team to make it happen. "We made so many unforced errors".

Back came the visitors as Hart saved low from Steve Mounie and then watched Tom Ince smash against the crossbar, but West Ham held out to claim a huge three points.

'It's nice to be back on the pitch, ' the 28-year-old added.
