West Ham United's Ayew dedicates goal to brother on birthday — EXTRA TIME

West Ham United's Ayew dedicates goal to brother on birthday — EXTRA TIME

West Ham's 2-0 win over Huddersfield on Monday night alleviated some of the mounting pressure on manager Slaven Bilic and broke Hart's run of conceding in 22 consecutive league games.

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.

Pedro Obiang's deflected shot from distance was impossible for Jonas Lossl to save, as the Hammers took their first lead of the season in the 72nd minute.

Buoyed by that, West Ham doubled their advantage six minutes later when Jose Fonte's header wasn't cleared and substitute Ayew poked in the rebound.

It was West Ham's first home game of the season as the London Stadium was being used for the world athletics championships in August.

"We scored the second one and after that, we never really stopped and we thoroughly deserved it".

The Hammers now sit bottom of the Premier League, having lost their first three games of the campaign, and speculation has already started about the possibility of a managerial change at this early stage. "It is my birthday today and this is a great, great present for me".

Carroll seemed to galvanise Slaven Bilic's West Ham side that has looked particularly poor in recent weeks.

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. We were good in seconds and defended their set pieces ok.

'It's been tough but I've worked hard and now I'm back. "We made so many unforced errors". It wasn't pretty, but for West Ham and Bilic to get off the bottom, it was exactly what was needed.

'It's nice to be back on the pitch, ' the 28-year-old added.
