Pedro Obiang's lucky strike buys Slaven Bilic time

Tony Pulis- 25/1

Tony Pulis- 25/1

Injury-plagued striker Andy Carroll's return to the side lifted West Ham and prompted a more direct approach which nearly paid off in the second minute when he drilled a shot across the goalmouth.

However, with Marko Arnautovic available again after selection, the Croat has several options at his disposal for the trip to the Hawthorns while he waits for news on his captain's fitness. I saw my team really focus, they showed determination, energy, that was really important to me, the thing I was focused on.

"West Ham were stronger with more opportunities and we were not good enough". That is the situation now, we feel it is our home. Dissenting voices were, however, silenced over the following 15 minutes.

The Ghana global came on by the 64th minute to replace Javier Hernandez "Chicarito" and assisted Pedro Obiang's opener eight minutes later, before he made it 2-0 on 77th minute with a calm finish.

According to the Claret and Hugh website, manager Slaven Bilic made a decision to drop the Englishman for Monday evening's clash at London Stadium, preferring Pedro Obiang and Cheikhou Kouyate as his central midfield pairing. Whilst the match day was doubly special for Slaven Billic, the Croat celebrated his 49th birthday with a victory over Huddersfield.

The West Yorkshire club next host Leicester City in the league on Saturday before visiting Crystal Palace in the League Cup third round three days later.

It meant goalpoacher Javier Hernandez was shifted out to the left, a tactic that isolated the Mexican and prevented him from getting on to the end of Carroll's flick ons. The manager in this game reversed to past year and it was very successful.

It was the Hammers' first win and the Ghanaian's first goal of the season.

Though Tom Ince hit the bar late on, which might suggest the closing stages of a game remain something of an issue, a clean sheet and overall control was a welcome sight for many. Huddersfield were often nervous in possession, needlessly losing the ball for throw-ins, or simply returning it to West Ham, on several occasions.

David Wagner conceded Huddersfield Town was "not good enough" and played like a promoted side as it slipped to a first Premier League defeat at West Ham.
