Wagner asks Huddersfield to be courageous after West Ham defeat

The Monday night fixture was West Ham's first home match of the season, having been unable to get into their London Stadium until it had been reconfigured following the world athletics championships in August. It was a deserved result, we were second best in more or less every area.

"I always hoped we would start well but I didn't expect it; we are happy so far but like I said it's only a start and we have to stay focused throughout the season". We looked like a promoted team with some nerves we have shown, especially with the ball. My players can play football and today we've not shown it. Five minutes later, a corner fell the way of the Hammers, who made the most out of it. Aaron Cresswell's kick found Ayew, who slotted the ball in. This was not good enough and we have to accept this. Our biggest problem was that without the ball we fought to keep the ball out of the goal, but with the ball we were not good enough. Today, we looked like a promoted team. Obiang's fortuitous tally was also the first goal the Huddersfield keeper had conceded in their campaign.

Several diplomats say the USA demand for a quick council vote is aimed at putting maximum pressure on China. The sanctions were adopted unanimously in NY , with Russian Federation and China's approval.

The 45-year-old admitted the performance was not enough to have come away with a result but was insistent that his players would learn from it, saying: " West Ham were stronger today, they had more opportunities and we were not good enough. Town will have a few days to work on their game, as they next play on Saturday at the John Smith's Stadium against Leicester City.

"Today we have seen what happens if we are not courageous enough and this is what we have to do better".
