That's full time. A wave of relief for West Ham fans, players and managers. Whether the owners feel the same, it's hard to say. Huddersfield faded after a strong start, but they can be pleased it took so long before they conceded their first Premier League games.

- Yellow cardPhilip BillingHuddersfield Town
Zabaleta is caught by Billing, turning into Zabaleta with his forearm extended to protect himself, and that's a booking. Two minutes of added time to come.

- Yellow cardMathias Zanka JørgensenHuddersfield Town
Antonio scorches down the left, but Jorgensen sticks out a leg at the last minute to earn a booking.
Hernandez lays the ball off to Fonte on the overlap after some neat passing from West Ham, and his effort is deflected for a corner.
Van La Parra just about finds Mounie with a cross to the edge of the box, but West Ham finally get a foul against Carroll by Schindler. Carroll then receives the ball about 25 yards from goal, but he scuffs a volleyed effort at goal.
This shows how Carroll has been used so far tonight.
Antonio is the latest player to concede a foul high up the pitch. Huddersfield are on the back foot, but certainly not cowed.
Carroll is penalised for grappling with Schindler, and that's fair enough.
Van La Parra brings the ball down on the left, but his pass forward rolls out of play.
Antonio skins his man down the right, he pulls back a clever ball to Hernandez, lurking at the back post, and he clips a shot against the crossbar.
A third of West Ham's passes have been long balls, Sky says.
Cresswell takes a corner on the left, and as Collins challenges for the ball, Billing gets clattered by Mounie and needs a bit of treatment.
Ince jinks his way into the box, takes on one too many players and is tackled, allowing Huddersfield to win a throw.
Huddersfield are playing it around the back, for their first spell of proper possession.
It is absoutely rodding it down here. Collins goes down in the centre circle after Ince catches him a tad late, and he jogs off for a check-up.
Carroll fires a low ball across the box with his left foot towards Kouyate, and his outstretched leg is just a fraaction short.
Let's absolutely kick off.
Sam Allardyce believes that West Ham's back three will allow them to stay compact, with the midfield two. It's certainly set to be a tactically fascinating two hours.
I'm predicting a 2-0 win to West Ham. They can't keep being as bad as they have done, can they?

And while NSFW, you may like to look up what the Sporting Lisbon called the West Ham owners last week.
It's open warfare between David Sullivan and Slaven Bilic, with both of them complaining over transfers. Whatever happened, Bilic didn't get the midfield signing he wanted. This could be his last match, with Rafael Benitez said to be ready to step in.
Huddersfield have the Nick Miller lookalike David Wagner calling the shots, and he keeps the impressive Mounie in attack. Paul Ince has also made a surprise comeback to midf- wait, I'm told that's actually his son, Tom.
This is West Ham's first home league game of the season after the London Stadium was used for athletics over the summer. It's a superficially strong line up, at the very least. the problem has been the brittle nature of some of the play, and the trudging slowness to it all.
