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.

And amazingly, it was the first time Hart had managed to keep a clean sheet in league competition for 23 games, and just his second of 2017.

West Ham fans, we feel your pain.

Ince (25) has played his part in the Terriers' impressive start as they bid to make it four games unbeaten at West Ham tonight. After three defeats your confidence is a bit down and all that, but the lads did everything we asked from them.

He said: "It's a massive relief". I went away to global duty and came back, I had a little injury but I managed to be on the sheet to play and managed to get in and get a goal. "I really have a feeling, and I see the players, we trained here yesterday and the day before, we like it more and more", he said.

'The positive thing is we have another game on Saturday (against Leicester).

Bilic will be looking for his players to provide him with a positive reaction, having had time away with their respective worldwide sides, and will be delighted that some of his first-team players are once again available for selection. It was a must-win game. I've been working hard in training and it's paid off. We knew inside that it was not good enough what we were doing and we needed to perform.

Kouyate poked wide at the other end shortly afterwards and it looked as though West Ham's wait for a league win would go on until fortune intervened. "It's going to be a great game of heart and desire and the best team is going to win".
