    Time:90'
    • West Ham United
    • Fulham
    • - Don't forget you can watch highlights of this match, along with every Premier League game, from 00:01 on Monday morning (UK only).
    • FT And there is the final whistle - a very entertaining match and the right result in the end.
    • 90+3 Salcido charged for a foul on Boa Motre when it looked the other way around. Schwarzer punches away the free-kick though.
    • 90+3 At the other end Gera has a shot blocked. Breathless stuff in this game.
    • 90+3 Great run by Noble but a shot with the outside of his boot is straight at Schwarzer.
    • 90+2 Riise on for Davies.
    • 90+1 SUPERB CHANCE TO WIN IT FROM KAMARA - he is played through by Dempsey and is in behind the defence with only Green to beat but he blazes it over the bar.
    • 90' We will have four extra minutes.
    • 89' For a moment it looks like Piquionne is going to head in his second but Salcido does enough and the ball loops away from danger.
    • 88' Parker shoots into the side netting from close range - he just didn't have the angle. Exciting finish to this game.
    • 87' Another great save from Green as he gets down low to save a close range header from Etuhu after a great cross from Baird.
    • 86' Very good save from Green as he bats away a low drive from Davies from distance. Looked like the Welshman controlled it with his arm so would have been controversial if that went in.
    • 85' Parker tries to get on the end of a Piquionne header but there was too much on it.
    • 84' Fulham starting to sit back a little bit now but can West Ham take advantage and nick a win here?
    • 82' West Ham probably looking like the more likely winner but this one looks like a draw.
    • 80' West Ham shift the ball well from right to left with Piquionne finding Obinna who then fires wide of the target. Just needed the ball to come to him a little quicker but the ball got caught under Piquionne's feet.
    • 78' Cross into the box seems to hit Etuhu's elbow as he looked to get a header on target. It goes well wide - the cross just wasn't at the right height.
    • 77' Free-kick into the box finds the head of Noble but nobody is on the end of it and Schwarzer gathers.
    • 76' Kamera on for Eddie Johnson.
    • 76' Ironic cheers from the crowd as Boa Motre is awarded a free-kick - they don't feel they have been getting the run of decisions. Fans always think that though don't they!
    • 75' Home fnans now happy with Obinna as he puts a cross over the bar. Well defended by Baird to be fair who is having a good game at right back.
    • 74' Gera now flashes a shot wide from another Baird cross. He just did not get a proper contact on it.
    • 72' Fulham take a quick free - Baird whips in a fine cross to the back post and Dempsey then puts a header just wide. Green was scrambling a bit there.
    • 71' Gera fires a shot from distance but that nearly reaches the top tier behind the goal.
    • 71' Gabbidon with a nice slide to get to a Davies ball intended for Johnson.
    • 70' Cole gets in behind Hughes and can run down the left side of the box but his cross is then very poor.
    • 69' Cole has come on for Barrera and Gera comes on for Duff - told you those two would come on!
    • 67' West Ham defend a Fulham corner and then a Simon Davies cross as Fulham enjoy a little spell of pressure.
    • 66' Hangeland chests down the resulting free-kick into the path of Johnson - the American controls but then snatches at the shot and it goes wide. That was half a chance.
    • 65' Upson booked for a diving tackle on Dempsey.
    • 64' Carlton Cole warming up - will we see him? Gera on the bench for Fulham too - expect to see him at some stage.
    • 62' Better defending by Hangeland this time as he steps-in to end an attack and the storms all the way to midfield before finding a white shirt.
    • 61' Duff whips in a decent free but West Ham head away the danger.
    • 60' End-to-end stuff as both teams exchange quick attacks. Turing into a good game this.
    • 58' Dempsey gets the better of Gabbidon and da Costa and squeezes his way into the six yard box - he gets there just before Robert Green but the diving keeper is able to make the close range save.
    • 57' Well this has been a very even game and both sides look like they could win it. It is Mark Hughes though so expect a draw.
    • 55' Murphy lobs in a free into the box but there is nobody running onto it. Poor stuff.
    • 54' Piquionne tries a half-volley from the corner of the box. It goes wide but Schwarzer dived which shows he was worried.
    • 53' Barrera leads a counter attack move - it is three v three - but Barrera checks inside and tries an awful shot when he had men in the middle.
    • 52' A buzz back in the Upton Park crowd now. West Ham look like they might have found a strike partnership.
    • 50' WEST HAM ARE LEVEL!!!! It all came when Hangeland gave the ball away very cheaply. Boa Motre shifts the ball to Obinna on the right - he puts in a great cross and Piquionne is there to head it in. Awful from Hangeland though.
    • 49' Good run by Barrera but his cross is headed away by Salcido.
    • 48' OFF THE BAR FROM DEMPSEY! - Johnson checks a ball back to his fellow American on the edge of the box and his shot skims the top of the bar.
    • 47' Cross to nobody really from Salcido.
    • 47' Damien Duff has reappeared but he has had a few stitches on that head wound of his.
    • 46' Back underway - no changes on either side.
    • HT And there is the half-time whistle. Very even game but Fulham have done a good away job here. They look solid at the back and they took their one big chance.
    • 45+2 Not for the first time today Hughes deals with a cross into the box.
    • 45+1 In the first of two extra minutes.
    • 45' Dempsey with a good ball put Johnson away - he looks for room to shoot but Upson slides in with a great tackle.
    • 44' Green does well to get down and gather a low cross from Duff from the left.
    • 43' Thanks to the readers who spotted the deliberate (cough!) typo on 24 minutes.
    • 42' Parker gets a shot on target from inside the box but he was offside.
    • 41' Obinna almost forces his way through two bodies on the edge of the box and then he has a chance to shoot but he drags his effort wide.
    • 40' A few groans from the home fans as Obinna is nicked by Hangeland. Fulham go up the other end where Duff has a shot blocked.
    • 39' West Ham try another threaded pass behind the defence but this one is too heavy and Piquionne was offside in any event.
    • 38' Dempsey tries a sort of bicycle kick but doesn't get much on it and he is charged with a high boot in any event.
    • 37' Just seen a replay of the Dempsey incident - da Costa was the man who pushed him off the ball but it looked to be just about on the right side of fair.
    • 36' Etuhu booked for a foul on Parker - West Ham then waste the free-kick.
    • 35' Another penalty shout for Fulham as Dempsey again burst into the box and he looked to be bundled down. Need to see a replay.
    • 34' You can't blame the England goalkeeper for this one - Dempsey and Davies exchange passes on the right - then Davies's second ball deflects again into the path of Dempsey who chests it down and guides it in from close range while under pressure.
    • 33' GOAL FULHAM!! It is Clint Dempsey from close range - he has beaten Rob Green again!
    • 33' Parker gets a booking for a tackle on Dempsey.
    • 32' Penalty shout for Fulham. Great ball over the defence from Murphy and Johnson gets in behind too defenders - it looked like Jacobsen's feet might have got tangled with Johnson's but the referee waved it away. Let off for the Hammers - I've seen them given.
    • 31' A rare Fulham shot from Eddie Johnson - it was from distance but he had a clear sight of goal. Poor effort though well over the bar.
    • 30' Header from Upson turns defence into attack but Obinna then loses his balance. and Fulham can clear.
    • 29' Barrera again can't beat the first man and Hangeland clears.
    • 28' WEst Ham's crossing has been poor today. They have had a few chances to put balls in but they have all been too close to Schwarzer.
    • 27' Parker nicks Murphy in midfield but then cannot slip a ball in for Piquionne.
    • 26' Schwarzwer has to be very alert after a poor back pass by Salcido. The Aussie keeper manages to clear ahead of Piquionne though.
    • 25' Dempsey is bruised after getting some of da Costa's arm as they went up for header. No malice in it though.
    • 24' Da Costa just overhits a pass looking for Piquionne.
    • 23' Obinna takes a knock after a great tackle from Etuhu ends an attack of his. Nigerian on Nigerian but Obinna should be okay. It was a great and fair tackle from Etuhu though.
    • 22' Well Salcido has now just put in another great cross but it is just a little too high for both Johnson and Dempsey.
    • 21' Now Fulham having a little spell of pressure but it is hard to see who is going to deliver the killer ball for them.
    • 20' Good spell for the Hammers now - they are starting to camp in the Fulham half but Boa Morte then drifts offside.
    • 19' Noble threads a great ball in behind the defence and Piquionne has a chance to run onto it but Schwarzer comes out to clear. Good keeping.
    • 18' Duff back on again - looks like they just used Vaseline again though. He has the number on his shirt again. .
    • 17' More blood coming from the head of Duff. He will need a bandage and / or stitches
    • 16' Obinna has a chance to whip a free-kick into the box but he overhits and it goes wide.
    • 15' Aaron Hughes with a very good defensive header from an Obinna cross. The Northern Irish international really is one of the most underrated defenders in the league.
    • 14' West Ham try and get something going dow the right but again give the ball away. Neither side can hang onto the ball at the moment.
    • 12' There have been 12 goals in the last four league meeting between these side - no sign of one so far today though.
    • 11' Scrappy midfield spell now with both teams giving the ball away.
    • 10' Duff, who has no number on his shirt now...fires a shot well wide - he wanted a corner but it did not look like it hit anyone.
    • 9' West Ham finally clear after a corner but only after Green produced a punch that wasn't the best.
    • 8' Upson has to head away a very good deep cross from Salcido - the Mexican really loves to get forward.
    • 7' Blood coming from the head of Duff after he got a bang - he is off the field at the moment.
    • 6' OFF THE LINE FROM FULHAM! Piquionne heads a corner towards the corner of the net but Salcido is on the line to head away.
    • 5' Fulham are passing the ball a little better in the early stages but this one is still settling down.
    • 4' Piquionne fires in a low cross but that is too close to Schwarzer.
    • 3' Dempsey drags a low shot wide....he will be keen to get shots on target after the way he caught out Green in the World Cup.
    • 2' Yellow card already for Gabbidon as he goes into the back of Dempsey.
    • 1' Bright start by Fulham but a couple of loose passes by Davies ends Fulham's first attack.
    • 1' The rain is falling at Upton Park and we are underway.
    • 14:58 Players have just come out - good atmosphere in the ground today - West Ham fans were really given a boost by that win against Tottenham last weekend.
    • 14:55 Fell free to leave your comments below too: Mike (ex apprentice at the­ Cottage) has already weighed in with: "Of course, Fulham will outplay West Ham in every­ department. West Ham are struggling whilst Fulham are,­ once again, on a roll."
    • 14:50 Hughes has given his side the thumbs up as he prepares for his seventh Barclays Premier League game in charge. Hughes impressed by Fulham start
    • 14:45 Fulham boss Mark Hughes meanwhile is better at drawing that Tony Hart ever was. Draws hurt as Manchester City boss but five draws and one win from their six games this season is enough to see Fulham up at seventh in league.
    • 14:40 Robert Green was the star performer in the Hammers first win of the season last week and West Ham manager Avram Grant has urged Fabio Capello to recall Green for England's Euro 2012 qualifier against Montenegro. Grant backs Green for England return
    • 14:35 West Ham name one change to the side that beat Tottenham 1-0 last weekend. Kieron Dyer is out after a being ill all week with diarrhoea so Pablo Barrera, who came on for Dyer in the first half last week, gets the start.
    • 14:30 Fulham make two changes from the side that played Everton last week. Chris Barid comes in at right back for the injured Stephen Kelly and Eddie Johnson is preferred up front to Zoltan Gera
    • 14:25 West Ham: Green, Jacobsen, da Costa, Upson, Gabbidon, Barrera, Parker, Noble, Boa Morte, Obinna, Piquionne; Subs: Stech, Tomkins, Cole, Kovac, McCarthy, Ilunga, Stanislas /// Fulham: Schwarzer, Baird, Hangeland, Hughes, Salcido, Davies, Etuhu, Murphy, Duff, Eddie Johnson, Dempsey; Subs: Etheridge, Pantsil, Gera, Kamara, Riise, Greening, Halliche.
    • 14:20 West Ham have won four of their last six Premier League matches against Fulham, but failed to beat them home or away last season.
    • 14:15 Hello and welcome to our live coverage of this London derby between West Ham and Fulham at Upton Park. West Ham have finally picked up some form but Fulham are one of only two teams who are unbeaten in the Premier League this season.
