West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has admitted that he did feel pressure before his club completed a 2-0 victory over Huddersfield Town on Monday. Join The Roar from 5am (AEST) for live scores.

West Ham threatened early on and almost went ahead after 12 minutes when Michail Antonio's cross found Javier Hernandez, who hit the crossbar from close range.

'It's been a tough road for us but we played our hearts out and got the three points'.

West Ham dominated the first half but could not find a breakthrough despite the likes of Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez looking risky.

Huddersfield Town, on the other hand, have surprised for all the right reasons.

The silver lining is that the Yorkshire club are still yet to concede a goal.

However the Croatian manager wasn't immune to being blasted by the Irons faithful, even though his decision ultimately earned his side their first points of the campaign on their return to the London Stadium.

She said there wasn't enough evidence but if the campaign proves to be guilty, the Justice Department should punish accordingly. The third and fourth positions were taken by Miss District of Colombia Briana Kinsey and Miss Texas Margana Wood .


Ayew set up Obiang's goal and then poked home after Fonte's shot from Aaron Cresswell's corner was blocked.

"We did get a slice of luck for the goal, but I think it was coming", said the 30-year-old. We knew with three players up front they would always cause problems.

"We weren't fearless enough, confident enough, we made so many unforced errors, so many poor decisions".

Birthday boy Bilic, 49 on Monday, was booed when he subbed off Javier Hernandez, off-form and uncomfortable with playing to the left of Carroll, for Ayew.

Andy Carroll has been mocked for his armed robbery ordeal by former West Ham midfielder Martin Allen.

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