West Ham beat Huddersfield to get first win of the season

Adjust Comment Print

BVB paid a big fee for Schurrle and if they could get that back from West Ham, and make a profit, then there's a good chance the club would go for it.

It was also newly-promoted side Huddersfield's first defeat of the season.

Slaven Bilic handed Andy Carroll his first start of the season and he partnered Javier Hernandez and Michail Antonio in the attack.

The hosts went close once again in the 26th minute but Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossi was well positioned to save James Collins' header.

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.

The last time the Hammers started off with zero points after three rounds was in the 2010-11 season, where they ended up finishing dead last and being relegated.

That Wagner bowed to the pressure was troubling since his side had been the favourites going into the game. And they had a little needed luck facilitating a happy night in the end. He did a medical but the club decided not to sell him and he's back.

Fils-Aimé told the Financial Times that the short supply of the NES Classic were not an intentional move to create buzz. Can we do more? "We don't want to have a consumer disappointed by not being able to get one for the holiday season".

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

It is thought that Bilic's tenure at West Ham was on the line after the team lost their opening three league ties and conceded ten goals along the way.

Andre Ayew has been directly involved in four goals in his last five Premier League games (a goal and assist v Huddersfield and a goal and assist v Burnley last May).

The defeat leaves Town sixth on the Premier League ladder.

The team certainly did that, but it did take a some good fortune with the first goal deflection to get them in front. "We've played at home - won - and now we go to West Brom which will be a very hard place to go". We totally deserved it.

"It is my birthday today and this is a great, great present for me", added the delighted Croatian.

The man that perhaps needs the most time, though, is manager Slaven Bilic.
