    • KICK OFF
    • HALF TIME
    • 45'
      Zarate twists and turns on the left-hand side of the West Brom penalty area as he tries to find a way past Sessegnon, but a disappointing final touch sends the ball out of play and brings the first half to an end.
    • 90'
      Great save by Myhill! Cresswell steps up and unleashes a curling strike from the set-piece but the West Brom goalkeeper does incredibly well to push the shot away from danger.
    • EXTRA TIME
    • 90'
      Once again, Yacob dives in to Lanzini and brings the West Ham attacking midfielder crashing to the ground just outside of the West Brom penalty area. This is likely to be the hosts' final chance of the game...
    • 45'
      And now Moses tests Myhill after muscling his way past two West Brom players, but he's unable to keep his shot down and sends it fizzing over the top of the crossbar from the right-hand side of the penalty area.
    • 90'
      Great play by West Brom! Lambert picks up the ball just outside of the West Ham penalty area and immediately chips it into the path of McClean. The Irishman sticks out a foot but is unable to get as much power on his poked shot as he would have liked, resulting in Adrian making a comfortable save.
    • 0'
      West Ham will be slightly worried by the fact that they are now without a win in their last four Premier League games, although they sit in a respectable sixth place, equal on points with fellow Londoners Crystal Palace. As for West Brom, they stay in 13th but move to within one point of both Stoke
    • 0'
      In the end, both sides will be relieved to leave with a point at the end of a contest that can only be described as a game of two halves. West Ham ran riot in the first half but took their foot off the pedal slightly in the second, allowing West Brom to fight their way back into the game to pick up

      FULL-TIME: WEST HAM UNITED 1-1 WEST BROMWICH ALBION
    • 0'
      The two teams are making their way back out onto the pitch ahead of the start of the second half.
    • 0'
      It's been an incredibly comfortable opening 45 minutes for West Ham, whose only complaint will be that they haven't been able to further their lead. West Brom have struggled immensely at both ends of the pitch, with their under-pressure defence failing to deal with Lanzini and Zarate and Rondon fail

      HALF-TIME: WEST HAM UNITED 1-0 WEST BROMWICH ALBION
    • 0'
      The two sides are making their way out onto the pitch, with just a few minutes to go until kick-off.
    • 0'
      Meanwhile, West Brom boss Tony Pulis has made just one alteration to the side that featured in last Saturday’s win at home to Arsenal, with Chris Brunt making way for Gareth McAuley.
    • 0'
      Slaven Bilic has decided to make three changes to the West Ham side that were thrashed in the aforementioned game against Tottenham, with Angelo Ogbonna, Pedro Obiang and Mauro Zarate coming into the starting line-up to replace James Tomkins, Mark Noble and Andy Carroll, respectively.

      There’s just over 15 minutes left to go until until kick-off, so let’s have a look at how the two teams will be lining up this afternoon…
    • 0'
      West Brom have quietly impressed over the course of the opening third of the season, although they are finding it difficult to keep periods of positivity going for long spells of time, despite the impressive nature of many of their victories. Last weekend was arguably the high point of the campaign
    • 0'
      West Ham treated us to an early shock when they started the season so well, resulting in them climbing as high as second place during the opening weeks, but a frustrating two-month period has seen them drop to eighth, just two points away from falling into the bottom half of the table. Victories aga

      Good afternoon and welcome to our live text commentary of today’s Premier League game between West Ham United and West Bromwich Albion at Upton Park.
    • 1'
      And we're off!
    • 3'
      West Brom embark on a good start to the game and work the ball around well as they look to find a way through the hosts early on. Dawson eventually sends a long pass down the right wing and into the path of Sessegnon, but Cresswell does well to shepherd it out of play for a goal kick.
    • 5'
      Zarate and Kouyate link up well on the right wing before the Argentine tries to penetrate the West Brom penalty area, but Evans does well to cut out the danger before charging up the pitch with the ball.
    • 7'
      Both sides are taking it in turns to patiently pass the ball around in the middle of the pitch, with neither able to find too much joy when pushing forward due to strong defending from both.
    • 9'
      Chance for Zarate! West Ham break away on a quick counter-attack through Sakho, who charges forward on a great run before teeing up Moses. The Nigerian moves it over to Lanzini, who twists and turns before finding his fellow countryman, but his shot from the left-hand side of the penalty area ends u
    • 11'
      Obiang picks up the ball after good play by West Ham but ends up losing possession with a poor first touch. It forces him into sticking out a foot that trips up Fletcher, resulting in a free kick for West Brom which is flung straight into the hands of Adrian.
    • 13'
      What a strike by Rondon! Zarate loses the ball in a dangerous position in the middle of the pitch, allowing McClean to fly forward before teeing up the Venezuelan striker. He immediately unleashes a rocket of a shot that comfortably beats Adrian before flying just a whisker wide of the far post.
    • 15'
      Obiang works the ball forward well before playing it into the feet of Sakho. With his back to goal, he battles with McAuley, but he's held onto by the Northern Irish defender and, as a result, earns West Ham a free kick just outisde of the West Brom penalty area.
    • 17'
      G M. Zárate Assist S. Sessègnon
    • 17'
      Olsson becomes the first player to enter the referee's book for dissent in the wake of Zarate's goal.
    • 17'
      GOAL! What an excellent shot by Zarate! After spending an age deciding what he's going to do, the Argentine steps up and curls a perfect strike over the top of the wall and into the top left-hand corner of net. That was absolutely brilliant!
    • 19'
      West Ham keep pushing forward and once again win themselves a free kick on the left wing as a result of clumsy defending by McAuley once again. The defender has struggled so far and is finding it particulatly difficult to deal with Lanzini.
    • 20'
      Lanzini steps up and curls a cross into the heart of the penalty area, but it's sent too near to Myhill, who is easily able to cut out the danger as a result.
    • 22'
      Moses picks up the ball just outside of the West Brom penalty area and tries to beat Evans, but the former Manchester United defenders holds firm and eventually dispossesses the Nigerian with a well-timed tackle.
    • 23'
      Excellent chance for Kouyate! Cresswell drifts out wide and receives the ball in acres of space. He then curls a wonderful cross right onto the head of the aforementioned Senegalese midfielder, but his headed effort ends up flying several yards wide of the far post.
    • 24'
      And now Lanzini goes close! Yacob is caught sleeping on the ball in the middle of the pitch, allowing the Argentine attacking midfielder to steal the ball from under his fellow countryman's nose. He then powers forward before unleashing a swerving low shot that Myhill is just about able to parry awa
    • 26'
      Ball after ball is flung into the West Ham penalty area, but each time the hosts are able to deal with the danger before McClean is eventually dispossessed by Kouyate deep down the left flank.
    • 28'
      West Ham break away on an incredibly quick counter-attack, with Moses charging past Yabob and into the West Brom half of the pitch. He then cuts inside and tees up Sakho, who is immediately clattered into by Evans just outside of the box. The referee waves play on, however, much to the annoyance of
    • 29'
      Zarate goes close again! Lanzini embarks on a great run into the right-hand side of the West Brom penalty area before cutting the ball back to his fellow countryman, who immedlately unleashes a curling strike that Myhill pushes away with a good save.
    • 31'
      Once again, Lanzini causes Yacob all sorts of problems with his pace and skill. He twists and turns on the left flank before cutting a through-ball back towards Sakho, but Myhill is just about able to dive onto the attempted pass before it can find the Senegalese forward.
    • 33'
      West Brom are really struggling to find any joy inside the West Ham half of the pitch. Olsson is unable to find a way past the determined hosts and eventually decides to send a lofted pass towards Rondon, but it's completely overhit and sails straight to Adrian.
    • 35'
      Again, West Brom try to push forward on a slow attacking move, but it fails to find Rondon and bounces harmlessly to Adrian. Tony Pulis doesn't look at all happy on the touchline, and it's no wonder why.
    • 37'
      A misplaced pass from Obiang rolls out of play for a throw-in on the left wing. It's sent to McClean who then whips a cross into the box, where the ball bounces around from one head to another before Ogbonna eventually clears the danger with a thumping volley.
    • 39'
      Jenkinson embarks on a good run down the right flank and does well to earn his side a corner after flying past three West Brom players. The set-piece is flung by Zarate into the middle of the box, but it's just about cleared by a strong header from Fletcher.
    • 41'
      Kouyate does well to dispossess Morrison in the middle of the pitch before breaking forward and teeing up Lanzini. The Argentine then tries to find Zarate, but his attempted pass is cut out by Fletcher at the vital moment.
    • 43'
      Chance for Sakho! A dangerous low cross from Cresswell flies past a plethora of bodies before reaching the Senegalese striker, whose low shot is deflected wide of the goal by a vital interception from Evans.
    • 44'
      The resulting corner is half dealt with by the West Brom defence before the hosts push forward once again. Cresswell sends another dangerous cross into the box but this time Fletcher is there to get a foot on the pass to stop it from finding anyone in claret and blue.
    • 45'
      The fourth official has indicated that there will be just one minute of added time.
    • 46'
      SI R. Lambert SO S. Sessègnon
    • 46'
      West Brom have made one change during the half-time break, with Lambert coming on to replace Sessegnon as the Baggies change to a 4-4-2 formation.
    • 46'
      And we're underway once again!
    • 47'
      Fast start by West Ham! Zarate twists and turns on a lovely run towards the edge of the West Brom penalty area before teeing up Moses. The Nigerian initially loses possession but does well to win it back before fizzing a pass across the face of goal, but McAuley is there to deal with the danger.
    • 48'
      Almost a costly mistake by Ogbonna! The defender initially does well to dispossess McClean but is quickly put under pressure by the Irishman after holding onto the ball for far too long, but he is just about able to thump it clear before the West Brom midfielder can win the ball back.
    • 50'
      GOAL! West Brom have equalised! A curling cross from McClean is only half dealt with by the West Ham defence, allowing Fletcher to pick up the ball 25 yards away from goal. He chests it into the path of Lambert, who immediately unleashes a rocket of a shot that hits the arm of Reid before bouncing i
    • 52'
      What a chance for Morrison! Rondon breaks into the right-hand side of the West Ham penalty area before cutting a lovely pass back to the aforementioned midfielder, who has a great opportunity to put West Brom in front but ends up completely scuffing his shot.
    • 54'
      A determined West Brom attacking move breaks down, allowing Kouyate to break forward on a charging run foward. He's just about to unleash a cross when he's clattered into from behind by McClean, resulting in a free kick for West Ham in a very dangerous position on the right flank.
    • 55'
      Zarate's delivery from the resulting set-piece is dangerous but Olsson does well to get a head on it near to the penalty spot.
    • 57'
      Chance for Sakho! A lofted pass over the top of the West Brom penalty area finds Cresswell on the left-hand side of the penalty area, and he immediately volleys a deft cross into the heart of the box. It finds the head of the Senegalese striker, but he can only send his effort looping over the top o
    • 59'
      Ogbonna holds onto the shirt of Lambert as the two battle for the ball not too far outside of the West Ham penalty area, resulting in a free kick for West Brom in a shooting position. The aforementioned striker steps up and fires a bouncing low strike that flies through the disjointed wall before be
    • 61'
      What a save by Adrian! Fletcher whips a lovely cross right onto the head of Rondon, who is completely unmarked in the middle of the box, but his close-range header is parried away brilliantly by the West Ham goalkeeper. The West Brom striker really should have buried that effort!
    • 62'
      Moses flies forward before being clumsily tripped over by Yacob, resulting in a free kick for West Ham in a similar position to the one from which Zarate scored in the first half. Can he do the same with this?
    • 63'
      No, he can't. He does well swing his strike over the top of the wall but it ends up flying straight into the hands of Myhill in the middle of the penalty area.
    • 64'
      SI A. Carroll SO S. Sessègnon
    • 64'
      Carroll comes on to replace Obiang in an attacking change for West Ham.
    • 65'
      You can tell that both teams are absolutely desperate to win today. Both are now playing with two strikers and are really pushing for a second goal. The game has become increasingly even since the start of the second half, as West Brom are looking far better when on the ball.
    • 67'
      West Ham patiently pass the ball around deep inside of the West Brom half of the pitch as they desperately try to find a way past the sea of white and blue shirts in front of them, but just as it looks as if they've penetrated the penalty area Moses is penalised for a hefty challenge on Yacob.
    • 69'
      Chance for Morrison! McClean breaks down the left wing in acres of space before cutting a lovely pass back to the aforementioned midfielder, but his wild strike from the edge of the penalty area ends up flying comfortably over the top of the crossbar.
    • 71'
      What an interception by Olsson! Moses picks up the ball in the middle of the pitch after dispossessing Yacob and flies forward on a wonderful run. He then tees up Sakho on the right-hand side of the penalty area, but the Senegalese striker's low shot is deflected out of play by a vital stop from the
    • 72'
      Sakho looks to be really struggling after stretching whilst shooting. He immediately signalled to the substitutes' bench after falling to the ground and it looks as if he's going to be replaced by Jelavic.
    • 74'
      SI N. Jelavić SO S. Sessègnon
    • 74'
      Sakho gingerly limps off the pitch to be replaced by Jelavic for the final quarter-of-an-hour.
    • 74'
      The resulting corner is only cleared as far as Zarate, who immediately unleashes a thumping shot that is completely overhit and flies well over the top of the crossbar and out for a goal kick.
    • 75'
      Now it's McAuley who has a problem after clashing heads with Carroll as the two battled in the air for the ball. It was entirely accidental, however, and it looks as if he's going to be able to continue.
    • 77'
      Kouyate charges down the right flank and swings a low cross into the heart of the West Brom penalty area. It almost meets Jelavic, who sticks out a foot and catches McAuley, who has only come back onto the pitch, in the leg, leaving the Baggies defender with another bruise to show for his troubles.
    • 79'
      West Brom win themselves a corner on the left flank after good play by McClean near the byline. It's swung towards the back post but bounces over to Zarate on the right wing, and the Argentine is quickly fouled by Yacob, resulting in a free kick for the hosts.
    • 81'
      Once again, Yacob is caught out by good skill by Zarate, resulting in him scything his fellow countryman to the ground and giving away a free kick 30 yards away from the West Brom goal.
    • 82'
      SI M. Antonio SO S. Sessègnon
    • 82'
      West Ham have made another attacking substitution, and this time it's Antonio who comes on to take the place of Zarate.
    • 83'
      Chance for Carroll! The resulting set-piece is flung into the heart of the penalty area, where it bounces around before falling at the feet of the big West Ham striker, but his first-time thump towards goal fails to beat the clump of white and blue shirts camped directly in front of him.
    • 85'
      Jenkinson bursts down the right flank on a marauding run forward before trying to find Antonio, but the full-back brings a promising attacking move to a disappointing end with a pass that is completely misplaced and fails to find the substitute.
    • 87'
      It's end to end stuff at the moment due to the acres of space currently available in the middle of the pitch, but neither side are showing enough fight in front of goal to find what would surely be a late winner.
    • 88'
      Antonio does well to battle his way towards the byline before cutting a dangerous pass back towards Carroll, but Fletcher is just about able to dive in front of it to send it flying out of play for a throw-in. West Ham are getting closer...
    • 89'
      What a chance for Moses! Carroll flicks the ball over the top of the West Brom defence and into the path of Lanzini, who then sends a brilliant pass back to the aforementioned Nigerian. He unleashes an almighty volley that looks set for the bottom right-hand corner of the net, but at the last moment
    • 90'
      The fourth official has indicated that there will be four minutes of added time.
