It looks like Slaven Bilic will live to fight another day, after his side beat Huddersfield to get their Premier League campaign underway.
The Croatian looked doomed to be the second manager to get the chop this season (after Crystal Palace axed Frank de Boer today) if he suffered defeat in the Monday night fixture.
But two goals against the new boys in their first game at the London Stadium this campaign was enough to secure a vital three points.
West Ham looked more than up for the challenge, buoyed by their home support.
But the Terriers proved tough to breakdown, as they have since making their Prem debut.
It’s no surprise goalkeeper Jonas Lossl managed to keep a cleansheet in each of his opening three matches of the season, with Huddersfield well drilled in defence.
In the end, it took the flukiest of flukey goals by Pedro Obiang to finally break the duct.
The breakthrough came after 72 minutes when Obiang’s 25-yard strike hit Mathias Jorgensen’s back and looped over Lossl.
Unlucky for Huddersfield.
The Hammers sealed the spoils just five minutes later when Andre Ayew turned the ball in from a corner kick.
Panic over then, lads?
Well, for another week at least.
