For Hart, on loan with the Hammers from Manchester City, the game also marked his first clean sheet in 23 league games, a run stretching back to his time with Torino in Serie A last term.

The defeat at London Stadium was Terriers' first of the season, and Smith explained that they were not courageous enough with the ball during the game.

A stunning nine out of 10 Premier League teams reported home stadium capacities of more than 95% at the weekend with West Ham topping the table with just 23 seats unfilled for their Monday night first win of the season against Huddersfield. We worked, fought and tried to keep the ball out of the goal but we were not good enough in possession.

"We have to be more courageous and more comfortable on the ball".

He was quoted by the BBC, saying: "If everyone was on it like [defender] Christopher Schindler was today, we would have had a better chance to get a result". Today, we looked like a promoted team.

"It's always the key to show the right response after a defeat but at the end I think what we have to learn is it makes no sense to play football without being confident on the ball".

Speaking on Thursday, the German boss said: I will let the players know that they can write history in the Premier League at Huddersfield Town.

Speaking after the game Wagner revealed he was disappointed with his teams quality on the ball, saying: " We were not good enough, it was a deserved result, we were second best in nearly every area, maybe the second half we were better.

"We were not good enough", he told Sky Sports.
