West Ham's first win of the season also gave Bilic something to smile about on his birthday!

Cape Town - Slaven Bilic admits he felt his job was at stake before West Ham United overcame Huddersfield 2-0 on Monday night.

The Ghanaian responded in the right way after being dropped to the bench following the return to full fitness of English forward Andy Carroll.

Who could replace Slaven Bilic as next West Ham manager if he's sacked?

Starting off their first-ever Premier League campaign with a 3-nil win away from home against Crystal Palace, they then went on to get their first ever home win, against Newcastle United. We stopped them from creating anything.

More good work from Antonio - this time on the opposite flank - then forced a free-kick, but Lossl gratefully gathered as James Collins' deflected header dropped tamely on the goal line following the set-piece.

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 stuck to the plan and fully deserved the win".

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

"But to be fair, I came to the zone where I don't care about it in that way". Then, when we did score it was at a time when we had lost the momentum a little bit.

Javier Hernadez hit the crossbar as West Ham dominated the first half, but the nerves were beginning to jangle for the hosts until, in the 72nd minute, they got a huge slice of luck. "We've played at home and we won and now we are going to West Brom and it will be very difficult there, so we have to keep calm, work hard and be patient".

Certainly, it was a vast improvement on the first three games when West Ham conceded 10 goals in three defeats.
