West Ham United claimed its first points of the season by beating promoted Huddersfield Town 2-0 Monday, giving some breathing space to under-fire coach Slaven Bilic who could finally celebrate his birthday.

Tom Ince hit the bar in the closing stages but West Ham saw out a scrappy victory - not that Bilic will be caring how it was achieved.

Nevertheless, 2-0 was how the score remained as West Ham ended a run of three successive defeats while Huddersfield suffered their first defeat of the season.

"It is going to be a tough game and we have to show this passion if we want to win it". "If we have learned that lesson then I accept this". It was a very important game for us.

Despite having more of the ball and completing more passes, they only forced Joe Hart to make two saves, with both efforts from outside the box - via Philip Billing and Steve Mounie.

In the build-up to the West Ham v Huddersfield match, it was widely reported that Slaven Bilic could lose his job were the Hammers to have been defeated. Bilic, on his 49th birthday, admitted that it was in the...

"It's unbelievable so for us today we managed to keep a clean sheet - we felt secure with the system we played tonight".
