West Ham reportedly already identify replacement for Bilic

Football in brief Andy Carroll’s adamant West Ham players back Slaven Bilic

West Ham United claimed their first points of the season by beating Aaron Mooy's Huddersfield Town side 2-0, giving some breathing space to their under-fire coach Slaven Bilic. In other words, Bilic found a way to keep games tight at the London Stadium and beat the teams his side were expected to beat.

Those talks went in Bilic's favour with the boss reportedly being told that he has a few more games to turn around the club's form, though a home defeat to Huddersfield on Monday night will nearly certainly spell the beginning of the end for the former Hammers favourite. "It was a deserved result". We made too many unforced errors.

Ayew, on as a second-half substitute, added a second goal in the 77th when he poked home a loose ball from inside the six-yard box from a corner. I was pleased with the way we played.

"But we kept the calmness, we changed a little bit the shape of the team and we said to the guys that you're going to go back to basics".

However, the London Stadium outfit will be without four players for the visit of Huddersfield, with Marko Arnautovic continuing his suspension, having been shown a red card in their defeat to The Saints.

"One of the reasons we were offloading so many players was to raise the funds to get the budget for him and then when it didn't happen you are frustrated".

Captain Tommy Smith echoed his manager's sentiments. "It was a very important game for us". I'm disappointed because we've been looking at that position for two years.
