    • KICK OFF
    • 90'
      SI P. Bamford SO M. Lanzini
    • 90'
      A hopeful punt forward is too long and Randolph collects. Is that it?
    • 90'
      Patrick Bamford replaces Arfield in Sean Dyche's last roll of the dice.
    • EXTRA TIME
    • 45'
      G M. Noble Assist M. Lanzini
    • 45'
      Mark Noble gives West Ham the lead in virtually the last kick of the first-half. His low penalty to Heaton's left is saved, but the England keeper can only parry the ball straight back to Noble's feet for him to gratefully tap in. It's not been a vintage opening half, but West Ham are full value for
    • 90'
      Burnley fire a series of crosses into the box which West Ham bravely defend, before Hendrick tries his luck and fires just wide of the target.
    • HALF TIME
    • 90'
      CLOSE! Ayew almost seals the win for West Ham as he brings the ball down and bursts into the Burnley box, but his fizzed shot across goal goes just wide.
    • 45'
      PENALTY TO WEST HAM! The Hammers have a wonderful opportunity to take the lead from the spot as Ben Mee pulls back Winston Reid as he looks certain to convert from a parried Carroll header. Can Noble convert?
    • 90'
      Burnley have possession deep into the West Ham half but they cannot force a cross, and Arfield gives away a cheap free-kick to let the Hammers off the hook.
    • 0'
      Frustration for Burnley and Sean Dyche, particularly after Sam Vokes missed such a clear opportunity to share the spoils when his header flew over the bar. That's just one point from seven away games now for Burnley, intensifying the pressure on them to keep up their impressive home form. But it's a
    • 0'
      Mark Noble's close range finish on the stroke of half-time after he saw an initial penalty saved by Tom Heaton proved to be decisive to give West Ham their first victory in seven games and relieve pressure on beleaguered boss Slaven Bilic. It was a game without a lot of quality with plenty of stoppa
    • 0'
      The full-time whistle blows and West Ham beat Burnley 1-0 at the London Stadium.
    • 0'
      We'll be back in around 15 minutes to see if West Ham can secure their first win in seven Premier League games, or if Burnley can mount a fightback.
    • 0'
      Burnley can have few complaints about either the award of the penalty or trailing at the break. West Ham, without ever looking impressive themselves, have had the best chances and well over two-thirds of possession. The goal will force Sean Dyche's hand as he must plot a way back into the game for t
    • 0'
      It's half-time at the London Stadium and West Ham lead Burnley by a goal to nil.
    • 0'
      The players are on the pitch almost ready to get underway. First there is a minute's applause for Hammers legend Peter Brabrook who died at the weekend.
    • 0'
      We're around 15 minutes away from kick-off at the London Stadium. Live action will be with you shortly.
    • 0'
      SUBS: Robinson, Flanagan, Tarkowski, Defour, Kightly, Bamford, Barnes.
    • 0'
      Burnley (4-4-2): Heaton; Lowton, Keane, Mee, Ward; Arfield, Marney, Hendrick, Boyd; Gray, Vokes.
    • 0'
      Burnley make one change from the 3-2 win over Bournemouth, and it's an attacking one, with Andre Gray replacing Steven Defour.
    • 0'
      SUBS: Adrian, Fernandes, Nordtveit, Browne, Quina, Fletcher, Ayew.
    • 0'
      West Ham (3-4-2-1): Randolph; Ogbonna, Reid, Kouyate; Antonio, Obiang, Noble, Cresswell; Payet, Lanzini, Carroll.
    • 0'
      Rare positive news this season for West Ham fans as Andy Carroll makes his first start since August, in one of two changes to the side which drew 2-2 with Liverpool. Cheikhou Kouyate also starts, while Andre Ayew and Havard Nordtveit drop out.
    • 0'
      Team news on the way shortly...
    • 0'
      Burnley meanwhile, sit 13th in the table after a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Bournemouth at the weekend, though the Clarets' poor away form will be a concern for Sean Dyche. Sam Vokes' penalty in a 3-1 defeat at Southampton in October is still Burnley's only goal on the road this season.
    • 0'
      Slaven Bilic's men come into the match still smarting from that 5-1 thumping inflicted by Arsenal during their last home game and they will be hoping to make amends against a Burnley side who have won just one point on their travels this season. West Ham are on a six-game winless Premier League run,
    • 0'
      It's a crucial game for both bosses, but particularly for under pressure Slaven Bilic, who knows that his side could slip into the bottom three if they continue their wretched run of form. Burnley are buoyant, and boss Sean Dyche will be eager to cement a mid-table berth with a positive result.
    • 0'
      Hello and welcome to the live text commentary for tonight's Premier League game between West Ham and Burnley from the London Stadium.
    • 1'
      West Ham get us underway...
    • 2'
      We have an early stoppage in play because of a clash of heads between West Ham's Winston Reid and Sam Vokes. Reid appears to have come off the worst, but he'll be okay to continue.
    • 2'
      So, will West Ham come out fighting at their new home ground after the 5-1 humbling to Arsenal? They start brightly, with the returning Andy Carroll mistiming a header wide from a Michail Antonio cross.
    • 4'
      We're back underway after that break in play and West Ham are straight back on the ball.
    • 5'
      Payet drifts in from the left flank and does well to bring down a bouncing ball just outside the box, but his effort is weak and easily gathered by Tom Heaton.
    • 5'
      Burnley are in possession for the first time, but Stephen Ward's long forward ball towards Vokes is easily dealt with.
    • 6'
      The home side are enjoying the best of this so far. Pedro Obiang is the latest to find some space just outside the box, but his cross can't beat the first man.
    • 8'
      Mark Noble does well to turn a poor pass into a neat flick for Lanzini, who surges forward and strikes for goal, but his effort from distance is wayward and Heaton is untroubled.
    • 9'
      Reid is in the wars. He finds himself on the ground again after a clash with Vokes. It will be interesting to see how that little duel plays out throughout the game.
    • 11'
      The pattern of this game seems clear from the outset, with West Ham enjoying the lion's share of possession, but mainly in areas where they can't really hurt Burnley.
    • 14'
      It's all got a bit scrappy, as there's yet another flare up between Vokes and Reid, which culminates in the New Zealand international giving Burnley's striker a shove. Definitely one to watch...
    • 15'
      Antonio is just inches from converting a curling Mark Noble cross at the far post, but his desperate lunge for the ball falls just short.
    • 17'
      Burnley have taken the sting out of the game with their disciplined defensive work, but they just cannot muster any fluency going forward. A Lowton long ball drifts through to Randolph.
    • 18'
      Cresswell gets to the byline and spears a cross towards Lanzini, but his flick is blocked by Keane.
    • 19'
      Andy Carroll grapples with Ben Mee in his effort to latch onto a delicately chipped Payet pass, and he fires well over the bar when under pressure.
    • 21'
      Vokes is penalised for an arm in the face of Kouyate and West Ham have a free-kick.
    • 22'
      Carroll is making a nuisance of himself in his first start since August, but he's not quite up to the speed of the game yet as another heavy touch gives possession back to Burnley.
    • 24'
      It's all very disjointed at the moment as Andre Gray is next to give the ball away cheaply straight to Dimitri Payet.
    • 25'
      That's better from West Ham, as Noble, Payet and Carroll try to engineer a chance in a tight situation in the box and are unlucky when the ball dribbles out for a goal-kick.
    • 26'
      Antonio wins the first corner of the game, and West Ham appeal for a penalty as the cross is touched onto a Burnley defender's arm. Nothing given.
    • 30'
      Burnley have their first half chance of the game as Gray and Arfield fire on goal just outside the box, but West Ham are able to smother both efforts and clear. More of that is needed from the visitors.
    • 31'
      Andy Carroll is winning the flick-on every time a ball is fired up to him, but no other West Ham player is ever in his vicinity. It's clearly starting to frustrate the big striker.
    • 32'
      Antonio drifs in from the right, latches onto a neat lay-off from Carroll and shoots towards the bottom corner but Heaton is able to get his body behind it. That's much better play from the Hammers.
    • 33'
      Ogbonna is lucky to get away with a totally misjudged clearance from a long ball forward and Randolph gathers. He then blames the floodlights for apparently not being able to see the ball, perhaps to spare his blushes.
    • 34'
      CLOSE! Holding midfielder Pedro Obiang unexpectedly finds himself with space to run into, and he blasts a fierce drive against the foot of the post. By far the best opening of the game so far.
    • 36'
      Vokes does well to win a knock-down in the box, but Gray isn't able to latch onto it.
    • 39'
      They haven't offered much by attacking threat, but Burnley's entire side work so hard off the ball to keep their shape and deny their opponents space. More solid defending leads to another West Ham corner.
    • 40'
      Payet strikes it from distance and the ball flies over the top.
    • 41'
      It's driven flat towards the back post but Cresswell does well to clear. And, yet again, there is a clash between Reid and Vokes which sees the Wales striker on the floor clutching his head.
    • 41'
      Gray is able to get down the side of West Ham's back three and forces a corner from Ogbonna. Burnley's first of the game.
    • 44'
      Can either side produce a decisive moment before the half-time whistle? It's the home side which try to up the tempo, and Cresswell's fierce drive is well blocked by a sprawling Lowton for a corner.
    • 45'
      Andre Gray gets the second half underway...
    • 45'
      OFF THE POST! Mark Noble is mere inches away from giving his side the lead on the stroke of half-time. Payet spots the West Ham skipper in space on the edge of the box from the corner, and he curls a delightful shot beyond Heaton only to see his strike cannon back off the post. A lucky escape for th
    • 46'
      Burnley have certainly started the livelier of the two sides, committing bodies forward and Gray running powerfully at the West Ham back three.
    • 48'
      Burnley attempt to build from the back but play breaks down and Cresswell is able to cross, but Carroll impedes Mee.
    • 49'
      West Ham keep the ball among themselves in defence as they attempt to draw the sting out of Burnley's lively start to the second half.
    • 50'
      CLOSE! Sam Vokes is close to giving Burnley the equaliser from an unconventional flick back over his shoulder as his side's free-kick is knocked into his path inadvertently by Andy Carroll.
    • 53'
      Andy Carroll's aerial dominance is helping the Hammers defensively this half, as he towers high to head away a floated Burnley free-kick from Lowton.
    • 54'
      CLOSE FOR BURNLEY! The visitors again almost force an equaliser through Vokes. Ben Mee cleverly peels off at the far post to meet a free-kick, heads it back across goal but Vokes can't quite convert ahead of the onrushing Randolph. Burnley look much brighter in this second period.
    • 57'
      Burnley continue to press, this time forcing Randolph to come out and claim from a drifted Ward cross, hurting himself in the process. The break in play may help the hosts, who have struggled to recapture their momentum from the first period since the interval.
    • 59'
      That's better from West Ham, who are able to force a corner following a deflected Andy Carroll strike.
    • 60'
      SITTER! Sam Vokes misses a glorious chance to square proceedings. Arfield does well to get free in the box, and his shot is parried and then deflected into the air onto the head of Vokes, who has a gaping net, only for him to nod over the top. What a let off for West Ham.
    • 62'
      Ben Mee receives the first caution of the game.
    • 64'
      That Vokes miss such a glorious opportunity for Sean Dyche's men, and with finishing like that it's easy to understand why they've not scored in open play away from home this season. Can they create another opening?
    • 65'
      There are half-hearted appeals for a penalty as a cross strikes Antonio, but the referee waves them away.
    • 67'
      Carroll clambers all over the top of Mee and appears to catch him in the back with his knee, forcing yet another long stoppage in play. It's been a theme throughout the evening.
    • 69'
      SI A. Ayew SO M. Lanzini
    • 69'
      Manuel Lanzini is withdrawn for Andre Ayew.
    • 70'
      Obiang may feel he's fortunate to escape a caution after tripping Marney as he tried to break.
    • 70'
      Arfield tries to drop the ball right into the path of Gray as he races beyond the West Ham defence, but it's slightly overhit and Randolph is able to collect.
    • 71'
      CLOSE! It is Arfield, and he strikes it firmly down to Randolph's left, but the Irish keeper does well to palm it away with one hand. West Ham are starting to ride their luck.
    • 71'
      Burnley win a free-kick in a dangerous position 25 yards out, and it's Arfield and Boyd standing over it.
    • 72'
      Jeff Hendrick receives a yellow card for a foul on Payet.
    • 74'
      Dean Marney hauls down Obiang and West Ham have a free-kick, in a good position to hit the looming target of Andy Carroll.
    • 75'
      It's cleared and Burnley are still in the contest. Fifteen minutes to play. Can Sean Dyche's men find an equaliser for only their second away point of the season?
    • 76'
      SI A. Barnes SO M. Lanzini
    • 76'
      An attacking substitution for Burnley as striker Ashley Barnes replaces George Boyd.
    • 77'
      Randloph flaps at an Arfield cross but is able to fist to safety. There is audible tension in the London Stadium as the Hammers cling to their slender advantage.
    • 79'
      A Payet free-kick is launched towards Carroll, but Burnley clear.
    • 80'
      Into the last ten minutes now. Is there another goal in this game?
    • 81'
      Burnley denied what appears to be a clear free-kick as Carroll tugs down Marney, but his strike on goal is then fired wide.
    • 83'
      SI A. Fletcher SO M. Lanzini
    • 83'
      A visibly tiring Andy Carroll is replaced by Ashley Fletcher.
    • 84'
      There is drama in the West Ham area as Hendrick loops a cross towards Marney at the back post, who knocks it down for Barnes who is making a nuisance of himself in the area, but he is correctly flagged for offside.
    • 85'
      Barnes gives away another free-kick as he clatters into the onrushing Randolph. Into the final five minutes...
    • 86'
      Barnes wins the header but Randolph is able to gather the loose ball.
    • 86'
      Kouyate gives away another free-kick, and this will be launched into the West Ham box...
    • 89'
      SI H. Nordtveit SO M. Lanzini
    • 89'
      As the game enters its crunch stage, Burnley seem to have dropped their tempo. Perhaps their best spell was at the start of the half when Vokes should have scored. Is there one final chance in this game?
    • 89'
      Mark Noble is replaced by Håvard Nordtveit.
    • 90'
      The ball is at the right end as far as West Ham are concerned, as Antonio wins a corner, and then tries to run the clock down in the corner. Five minutes of added time...
