    • 90'
      Carroll is encouraged to shoot by the fans and does so. His effort is deflected away from goal and Sakho keeps it alive, however, the flag is raised and the move comes to an end.
    • 90'
      West Ham are unable to hold onto possession when they get it at the moment, but they continue to remain resilient to every Newcastle attack.
    • 0'
      West Ham move up to fifth in the table, while Newcastle drop to the bottom. That's all we have time for tonight. Thanks for joining me, Tom Webber, and have a great night.

      FULL TIME - West Ham 2-0 Newcastle: The Hammers secure their first home win of the Premier League season as two goals from Payet leaves McClaren's men without a win from their opening five games. The hosts were formidable on the break while the Magpies showed no cutting edge despite their superior p

      HALF TIME - West Ham 1-0 Newcastle: Payet's super strike in the ninth minute gives Bilic's men the advantage at the interval, but it is the visitors that have enjoyed the majority of possession. They've done little with it in truth, though, and, when their best chance to Janmaat, Randolph responded

      The teams have made their way out onto the pitch and the game will begin in just a few moments. An interesting aside to this game; should Newcastle win then reigning Premier League champions would find themselves in the bottom three!

      There were concerns that kick off would be delayed tonight, with traffic prolonging Newcastle's journey to the stadium. However, the team coach has been escorted to the ground and we will be underway in 15 minutes, as expected.

      NEWCASTLE TEAM NEWS: The Magpies have scored just twice in their opening four Premier League games and are without Aleksandar Mitrovic due to suspension, so the burden falls on Papiss Cisse this evening. Elsewhere, McClaren’s team is unchanged from their 1-0 defeat to Arsenal last time out.

      WEST HAM TEAM NEWS: Andy Carroll returns to the squad after seven months out and features on the bench alongside new signings Michail Antonio and Nikica Jelavic.

      Tonight's fixture sees the Slaven Bilic and Steve McClaren face off once more. Almost eight years ago, Bilic's Croatia defeated McClaren's England side 3-2 at Wembley, denying the Three Lions a place at Euro 2008 and ending the former Middlesbrough coach's time with the national team.

      Hello and welcome to this evening's LIVE coverage of the Premier League clash between West Ham United and Newcastle United at the Boleyn Ground. The Hammers have suffered defeat in both of their opening home fixtures this season, while the Magpies are winless on the road this term. Will something gi
    • 1'
      We're off at the Boleyn Ground!
    • 2'
      West Ham break with Sakho feeding Payet in down the left. The Frenchman cuts inside of Anita and attempts to return the favour by sliding a through-ball into the box. He doesn't quite get it right, though, and ends up sending it straight out for a goal kick.
    • 4'
      Reid's long clearance is chased by Sakho but Coloccini clears it into touch. It's been a rather low-key start to proceedings, with neither side settling into an early rhythm.
    • 6'
      Payet pokes a pass to his left for Moses and the Chelsea loanee twists and turn before releasing the ball. His attempt to find Cresswell goes out off a Newcastle shirt and the hosts have a throw-in in an advanced position. Possession is soon back with Moses but, under pressure from Sissoko, he inadv
    • 8'
      Newcastle build slowly from the back before Janmaat provides an attacking injection by rolling the ball down the right for Sissoko. The Frenchman's attempted cross is deflected behind for a corner, which Thauvin delivers. The set-piece is disappointing and is headed away by the first West Ham body i

      Assist by M. Noble.
    • 9'
      GOOOOOAAAAAL!! WEST HAM LEAD! It's a brilliant finish from Payet! Sakho's backheel finds Noble at the top of the box and the captain cuts inside and tees up the Frenchman. He strikes the ball first time, curling a delightful finish out of the reach of Krul and into the top corner!
    • 11'
      Bilic couldn't have asked for a better start. Anita had been breathing down Payet's neck throughout the early exchanges but he was nowhere to be seen as the Frenchman opened the scoring there.
    • 13'
      Newcastle get West Ham penned back inside their own half and recycle the ball from right to left after failing to find a route through the defence. Haidara and Thauvin try to create something but Tomkins is alert and steps in to nullify the threat.
    • 14'
      Janmaat's driven cross is helped into the feet of Colback by Cisse. The midfielder has to take an extra touch to get it out from under him and that sees the angles narrow, resulting in his shot being blocked. Newcastle quickly send the ball back into the centre but the aforementioned Senegalese stri
    • 16'
      Noble and Lanzini have both given the ball away cheaply in the past few minutes, but neither error came in a potentially destructive area. Cresswell initiates a one-two with Payet on the left and the defender is blocked off by Sissoko, and the referee blows for a free-kick.
    • 17'
      Payet's delivery isn't great and Cisse, back to help defend, heads it away. The hosts probe down the right and fail to forge an opening, with Noble then knocking a clearance from Krul out for a throw-in on the far side.
    • 18'
      Newcastle have had the majority of possession so far tonight but they haven't done anything with it. Much of their time on the ball has been around their own halfway line. They almost get exposed at the back, though, with Moses spinning away from Janmaat and centring for Payet who stabs wide.
    • 20'
      WHAT A CHANCE! Janmaat goes on a marauding run down the right before having his pass knocked into the feet of Wijnaldum. The former PSV man's first touch looks heavy but ends up falling kindly for the right-back, who shoots straight at Randolph!
    • 22'
      STAT: Newcastle have only picked up two points from their last nine games on the road, though they’ve shown improvement under McClaren with a 0-0 draw at Manchester United last month.
    • 23'
      Sakho controls a long ball on his chest at the top of the box before attempting an audacious strike on the spin. He gets under it, though, and ends up sending a looping shot beyond the far post. That was never going to worry Krul.
    • 25'
      Kouyate seems to be the first player to every loose ball at the moment. He nods one out to Payet who produces some fantastic footwork to get away from Sissoko and drive inside. He slides a pass inside for Lanzini, but the Argentine rifles his shot high over the bar.
    • 26'
      Kouyate looks to run onto Lanzini's lofted pass down the right but he bundles Coloccini in his desperation to stop the ball from running out of play. The referee awards the visitors a free-kick as a result.
    • 27'
      Another poor pass from Noble is seized upon by Colback. He loops a header on to Cisse but the striker cannot get the better of Ogbonna, who positions himself perfectly to clear the threat.
    • 28'
      Haidara is not closed down 25 yards out and opts to use the space to pull the trigger. His attempt isn't the best, though, swerving off target as soon as it leaves his boot.
    • 29'
      Sakho does well to eke a pass out to Payet on the right, and the Frenchman then looks for the striker's run into the box. His delivery is too close to Krul, who barely has to move to claim it. There's plenty of fluidity in the three players operating behind West Ham's striker.
    • 30'
      J. Colback gets yellow.
    • 30'
      Colback is the first player to go into the book for a blatant, cynical trip on Kouyate as the midfielder looked to break forward. He can have no complaints about that.
    • 32'
      Lanzini rolls what looks to be a short pass back to Randolph, but the keeper races out and launches it long. It almost proves to be the perfect ball for Sakho, however, the striker is unable to control it as it drops from the sky.
    • 34'
      West Ham break through the centre, with Lanzini releasing Kouyate who dribbles towards the top of the box. Sakho tries to make a run off his team-mate but the former Anderlecht midfielder holds onto possession for too long. Coloccini takes full advantage and makes an important intervention.
    • 36'
      Noble is penalised for a handball after tackling Sissoko in the middle. The West Ham captain has really struggled this evening despite playing an important role in the opener. His passing has been uncharacteristically sloppy.
    • 37'
      Anita does well to dispossess Payet in the centre circle and clip a pass out to Cisse on the left. The striker turns back and feeds Thauvin, who floats a cross towards Wijnaldum in the box. Randolph watches it the whole way and is able to collect it unchallenged.
    • 39'
      Newcastle continue to see more of the ball, with West Ham only really threatening on the break. Bilic will be pleased by the fact that his team have looked much harder to penetrate tonight.
    • 41'
      Janmaat sets Wijnaldum away down the right and Ogbonna comes across to force him back. The right-back chases up to offer support to his compatriot, earning a corner off the aforementioned Italian. He's now down in the box and clutching his hamstring, receiving medical attention.

    • 42'
      A. Ogbonna is done for the day. C. Jenkinson is his replacement.
    • 42'
      It is indeed the end of Ogbonna's night and his replacement is Jenkinson. Tomkins will likely move into the centre of defence now.
    • 43'
      MOSES! It's another rapid counter-attack for the hosts, breaking at pace following a Newcastle corner. Payet rolls a brilliant pass into the path of the Chelsea loanee as he races beyond him to the right. He fails to get a good connection with the ball, though, slicing his effort wide of the near po
    • 45'
      Lanzini lifts another lovely pass into the box for Sakho, who juggles it before looping a cross to the back post. Payet manages to keep it in play and picks out Noble at the top of the area. The captain goes for goal with a volley that is always bending away from the goal.
    • 46'
      We are back underway!
    • 47'
      Reid concedes a free-kick following a foul on Janmaat, but the defender quickly tells the Dutchman to get back to his feet as he feels he made too much of it. The set-piece is fired in by Thauvin but once more it's not good enough.

      G D. Payet Assist M. Noble
    • 48'
      GOOOOAAAAL! WEST HAM SCORE ON THE BREAK! Thauvin's free-kick is cleared up the pitch and Moses races in behind, shaking off Anita before cutting inside of Anita. His strike cannons back off the bar but Payet is perfectly placed to fire home his second of the night!
    • 50'
      That will be a big blow for Newcastle, who have enjoyed plenty of possession and would have been hoping to work their way back into this game following the restart. Instead, they find themselves two down and the search for an elusive goal continues.
    • 52'
      Janmaat earns a corner for the visitors which Thauvin leaves to Wijnaldum. The Frenchman ends up controlling the set-piece inside the box but it's knocked away as far as Janmaat, who slices an effort wide from 25 yards.
    • 54'
      Moses shows his effectiveness at the other end now, tracking back and nullifying the threat of Janmaat. The ball is cleared up field and Newcastle have possession once more. Sissoko whips a cross in from the right that comes at an awkward height for Cisse, who shins an effort off target.
    • 56'
      A mistake from Coloccini sees him pass the ball straight to Payet just outside the box on the right. The Frenchman darts to the byline and sees his cutback blocked behind for a corner. He swings it himself, only to see Mbemba head it out for another set-piece. The former Marseille man jogs over to t
    • 57'
      D. Janmaat gets yellow.
    • 58'
      Kouyate takes a heavy knock during a tackle and takes a while getting back to his feet. Bilic has Obiang preparing for action in the dugout, so we could see a change in a few moments.
    • 59'
      SI Pedro Obiang SO M. Noble
    • 59'
      Pedro Obiang enters play, replacing M. Lanzini.
    • 59'
      Well, Obiang does indeed enter the fray but it is Lanzini who makes way. A slightly defensive switch from the Croatian coach.

      SI Ayoze Pérez SO M. Noble
    • 60'
      Ayoze Pérez comes on for F. Thauvin.
    • 60'
      S. de Jong enters the game and replaces V. Anita.
    • 60'
      Anita tries his luck with an ambitious effort from 25 yards out that is always going over the top. It proves to be his final action of the match, as he is replaced by De Jong. Thauvin is also withdrawn as Ayoze comes on.
    • 62'
      STAT: West Ham have won just one of their last five Premier League meetings with Newcastle and only two of their last nine at home to the Magpies.
    • 64'
      Perez wins a free kick from Noble in midfield which Colback takes short. Newcastle probe down the right but again hit a dead end, with Reid clearing the ball into touch. They've seen 58 per cent of possession in the second half but, once more, have done nothing with it.
    • 66'
      De Jong initiates a one-two with Sissoko 30 yards from the West Ham goal but the return pass is intercepted by Tomkins. The Magpies then attack down the left, but Haidara sees his delivery blocked by Jenkinson. They do finally get the ball into the box from the resultant throw-in, with Janmaat pulli
    • 68'
      West Ham are awarded a free kick in a dangerous position, just outside the box on the right, after Perez fouls Noble from behind. This will be a great chance for the hosts to add to their tally.
    • 69'
      Cresswell decides to go for goal despite the fairly acute angle. He hits it with plenty of pace but can only guide it into the side netting of Krul's goal.
    • 70'
      Sakho's backheel for Moses is intercepted by Colback, with the midfielder sliding it out of play for a corner. Payet pings it towards Reid but it is too high for the centre-back and Mbemba nods it clear. Obiang dribbles into the box from the right and has a shot blocked by Coloccini.
    • 71'
      Jenkinson gets away from Colback on the right and drills a cross towards Sakho with plenty of venom. The striker gets his head to it but doesn't make enough contact to divert it on target.
    • 73'
      Kouyate sets Sakho on his way with a lovely pass and the striker carries the ball into the box before checking back. It gets him away from Colback but Mbemba quickly arrives to get his body in the way of the West Ham man's shot.
    • 74'
      Janmaat again proves to be Newcastle's most dangerous player, arriving late to the ball 25 yards out. He has to stretch in order to get a shot away and subsequently can only loop it into Randolph's arms.
    • 76'
      Moses races in from the right and offloads to Payet, who then slides a first-time pass to Kouyate. He twists and turns away from Janmaat but runs into Mbemba, still managing to win his side a corner.
    • 78'
      Colback adds some intensity to Newcastle's play, rolling a vertical pass into De Jong who then knocks it out to Haidara. The left-back's delivery finds Cisse, but the striker's touch lets him down at the vital moment! That is the problem that has been endemic in the Magpies' current campaign.
    • 79'
      SI R. Aarons SO M. Noble
    • 79'
      R. Aarons comes on for G. Wijnaldum.
    • 79'
      McClaren makes his final change, withdrawing the industrious Wijnaldum for Aarons.
    • 81'
      GOOD SAVE! Perez finds De Jong at the top of the box and the Dutchman produces a good touch to turn quickly. His shot takes a deflection which sends it looping towards the target. However, Randolph reacts well to touch it over the bar.
    • 83'
      Payet clips a pass out to the left for Moses as the Hammers look to hit the visitors on another counterattack. The winger attempts to cut inside of Janmaat but lacks conviction this time around and the attack comes to an end. He produces a moment of sublime skill to get away from the Dutchman moment
    • 85'
      Krul has to react quickly! The Dutchman is brave to dive down and smother the ball as Sakho slides in to try and prod Reid's deflected shot into the back of the net!
    • 87'
      Moses dribbles forward on the left and is sent tumbling after knocking the ball beyond Mbemba, winning a free kick. It proves to be his final action of the game as Carroll completes his return from injury with an appearance against the club where he made his name.
    • 88'
      SI A. Carroll SO M. Noble
    • 88'
      V. Moses is replaced with A. Carroll.
    • 88'
      Carroll is straight into the action, rushing into the box to try and get on the end of Payet's set-piece delivery. He's beaten to the ball by Krul and the referee awards Newcastle a free-kick of their own as the pair collide.
    • 90'
      We are going to have a minimum of three added minutes.
