West Ham United have claimed their first points of the England Premier League season after overcoming Huddersfield Town 2-0 in the London Stadium. Join The Roar from 5am (AEST) for live scores.

Sky Bet reacted by easing Bilic, who was celebrating his 49th birthday on Monday, to 11/10 from 5/6 to be the next Premier League boss to go, with Newcastle's Rafa Benitez and Southampton's Mauricio Pellegrino cut to 9/2 and 10/1 respectively. We started with three away games but three defeats; it was a must-win game.

Huddersfield Town, on the other hand, have surprised for all the right reasons. "It was a deserved result, we were second best in more or less every area".

Most people will agree that Sullivan and Gold completed some excellent signings in this recent summer transfer window, but clubs can become a victim of their own success.

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

Two goals in the last 20 minutes, the first a deflected Pedro Obiang shot and the second Andre Ayew's close-range effort, earned the Hammers their first points of the season.

Open for the first time, while Svitolina's chance of obtaining the No. 1 world ranking following this tournament disappeared. Vandeweghe broke Pliskova's serve to take a 3-1 lead in the second set, but Pliskova broke back to make it 3-2.

Just as they seemed to be stretching West Ham, they nearly shot themselves in the foot as Zanka sliced an attempted clearance just wide of his own goal.

"The goals were unlucky for us but I'm angry about our performance".

The Monday night game also marked Carroll's first start of the season after the 28-year-old returned from a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

That Wagner bowed to the pressure was troubling since his side had been the favourites going into the game.

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

Andy Carroll made his first appearance this season following a thigh injury, with Mexico striker Hernandez having to move out to the wing to make space for the target man. I am sure you will see a different West Ham getting those first three points.
