West Ham beats Huddersfield 2-0, gets off mark in EPL

Angelo Ogbonna of West Ham United arrives at the stadium prior to the Premier League match between Middlesbrough and West Ham United at the Riverside Stadium West Ham without four for Huddersfield game; Bilic has two available to return

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.

Overall it was a much improved performance by the East Londoners but how did we rate each player's individual efforts?

A match big on commitment but poor in quality had seen West Ham, with Andy Carroll back in attack after a thigh injury, go close twice in a first half they dominated.

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.

"We had a gameplan and from the first moment we were on the front foot". We are up and running and it's nice to be at home and get a result.

Dimitri Payet left West Ham last January, after going on striker in order to return to Marseille, in a deal which was eventually worth £26m. We totally deserved it.

As I alluded to in the previous paragraph, West Ham are a long way from successfully integrating the new players into their squad. West Ham's first win of the season also gave Bilic something to smile about on his birthday!

More good work from Antonio - this time on the opposite flank - then forced a free-kick, but Lossl gratefully gathered as James Collins' deflected header dropped tamely on the goal line following the set-piece.

JOE HART claims he is not bothered about keeping clean sheets - providing West Ham are winning matches. Times were tough, but we needed to stick together and work hard as a team to make it happen.

A suspect has since been convicted of armed robbery but Allen still poked fun at the 28-year-old on the London Stadium public announcement after Carroll was revealed to be starting against Huddersfield on Monday night.
