Bilic happy with birthday success

A loss tonight would probably have done for Bilic after a awful start to the league, but West Ham weren't lucky tonight, they were impressive.

West Ham's victory, secured by a deflected Pedro Obiang strike and an Andre Ayew tap-in, ended a run of three consecutive defeats in a awful start to the season.

"It was a close game but in the end we could not expect more than a draw".

"I'm disappointed because this was a defeat where we played a big part in it", said Wagner, adding that his side "were not fearless enough and confident enough". West Ham's first win of the season also gave Bilic something to smile about on his birthday!

It was the first goal that Huddersfield - or Lossl - have conceded in their first season back in the top flight. "It's my birthday and this is a great present".

Ayew told club's official website: "We don't have to get too excited", he said.

For all the danger they posed coming forward, West Ham lacked an edge and Antonio's 20-yard drive deflected over rather than in before Kouyate missed the target when he should have scored.

"It was a deserved defeat", he said.

"I'm not going to lie, Frank de Boer was in the back of my mind".

"On the whole, though, we realise we weren't as good as we can be and we have to look to put that right". "If we have learned that lesson then I accept this".

"To be fair, I came into the zone where I don't care about that - not in a negative way, I care about the team - but I saw them really focused".

And here are the Premier League players whose wages made them the most expensive per minute played.

Perhaps he is a genius, perhaps he is just lucky, who cares?

West Ham striker Javier Hernandez earlier struck the crossbar with a shot, while Tom Ince smashed a drive against the bar late on for Huddersfield.
