Former Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United midfielder Jermaine Jenas has told BBC Sport (21:58) that West Ham United’s performance against Huddersfield Town was worrying.

West Ham got the better of Huddersfield 2-0 at the London Stadium in the Premier League on Monday evening.

After a goalless first half at the London Stadium, Pedro Obiang put the Hammers in the 72nd minute, and Andre Ayew doubled the advantage just five minutes later.

It was Slaven Bilic’s side’s first win of the 2017-18 Premier League campaign, and it must have been a relief to the team as well as to the fans.

Former Tottenham and Newcastle midfielder Jenas, though, was not too impressed with the performance of West Ham.

“It was all about getting the job done for Slaven Bilic, his team and the fans,” Jenas told BBC Sport (21:58). “They have watched better performances.

“You could feel the tension on the pitch. It was a low risk strategy and eventually it worked for them. Fair play to West Ham because there was a lot of pressure on them today.

“If you're a fan watching that from West Ham week in week out it would be worrying.

"But Bilic could say Lanzini isn't playing and other ball players - he would say he had one way to play. If this was how he was moving forward his job would still be at risk.”
