    • - Don't forget you can watch highlights of this match, along with every Premier League game, from 00:01 on Monday morning (UK only).
    • 90+3' The final whistle goes and it's a great victory for the Hammers!
    • 90+1' GOAL!! Carlton Cole has made sure of the win for West Ham with another quality goal! The substitute wrestles Skrtel off the ball, comes forward, bamboozles Carragher with a stepover beofre firing a low finish past reina at the near post!
    • 90+1' Three minutes of added time are signalled.
    • 90' The free-kick comes to little but West Ham come again. Noble surges into the box and shoots for the near post, but Reina has it covered.
    • 89' Parker knocks the ball past Wilson and the Scottish defender brigns him down. Free-kick on the right for West Ham.
    • 88' West Ham substitution: Carlton Cole replaces Ba.
    • 87' Some chants of "USA! USA!" from the West ham fans. Are they hailing their American midfielder Spector or mocking Liverpool's owners? You decide!
    • 86' N'Gog fires way over the bar from range. Green watches it sail into the crowd.
    • 85' Johnson's second goal of the season comes against his old club, and could yet help Liverpool salvage a point.
    • 84' GOAL!! Liverpool pull one back! Great skill from Suarez as he turns sharply inside the box and plays the ball across the six-yard box for Glen Johnson to finish at the far post! Is the comeback on for Liverpool?
    • 83' West Ham are being pegged back in their own half somewhat now.
    • 82' West Ham substitution: Jonanthan Spector replaces Piquionne.
    • 81' Upson clears for a corner. Liverpool take it quickly but West Ham hold firm.
    • 80' West Ham are yet to win a Premier League match with a three-goal margin this season. Can they grab another?
    • 78' The Uruguayan's delivery comes in, and almost immediately the whistle blows for a foul against Kuyt.
    • 76' O'Neil is penalised for obstructing N'Gog as the substitute ran down the right channel. Suarez will send this into the box...
    • 75' Piquionne drills a strike from outside the box and Reina almost spills it into the net! Fortunately for him the spin on the ball stops it rolling over the line.
    • 73' Parker had the run of the midfield there. Liverpool have really struggled with the switch in formation following Kelly's injury.
    • 72' Parker makes a driving run forward through the centre before Reina comes out to claim the ball.
    • 71' O'Neil smashes the ball right into the face of his team-mate Bridge! The on-loan full-back takes a moment to gather his thoughts.
    • 70' POSSESSION: West Ham 60%-40% Liverpool.
    • 69' Gerrard has a shot on the turn blocked inside the West Ham area. The Liverpool skipper has not been at the races today. It is his first game back after injury, mind.
    • 67' Noble swings in a great corner and Piquionne's header bounces wide of the far post! Should be 3-0!
    • 65' Lars Jacobsen roves forward and has a dig from distance that fizzes over the bar! The Dane is yet to score a goal in English football.
    • 64' N'Gog has three claret-and-blue shirts around him but manages to win a corner. Again Liverpool can't make anything from the set piece.
    • 63' O'Neil lines up a shot from the right side of the box which deflects off Carragher for a corner. That could have gone anywhere! Reina claims the corner.
    • 62' Green punches Suarez's corner clear. Liverpool retain the ball and attack via the other flank, but Green plucks Kuyt's cross out of the air.
    • 61' Gerrard plays up to Suarez who rolls Tomkins with a great turn and strikes... Great save by Green! The shot is tipped two-handed round the post!
    • 60' Piquionne squares a pass across to Hitzelsperger, who this time blazes his strike way over the bar.
    • 59' Parker gives N'Gog the runaround in midfield, turning him first this way then that. The home fans are loving it.
    • 58' Hitzelsperger draws an aerial foul off Kuyt, who is right to feel a little hard done by.
    • 57' Ba scores another goal today, he will equal the PL record of scoring four goals in his first three Premier League matches. Collins John was the last player to achieve this feat (for Fulham in April 2004). (Infostrada)
    • 56' Great skill by Demba Ba as he controls and plays Piquionne out wide. west Ham look capable of going three goals up here.
    • 55' Hitzelsperger gets to the edge of the box and checks on to his right boot, allowing Carragher the time to make the block at the expense of a corner. Liverpool clear once again.
    • 54' West Ham are lifted by that chance and win a corner. Taken short to Noble, whose cross is blocked by Gerrard.
    • 53' Hitzelsperger plays a weighted first-time ball into the path of Ba who drills a low strike a shade wide of the post!
    • 52' Green is forced into kicking the ball out of play due to Suarez closing him down. Green has made nine errors leading to goals in the Premier League since the start of last season & five this term alone; more than any other player. (Opta)
    • 50' Ba is the third West Ham player to score three goals in his first three Premier League matches for the club after Trevor Sinclair (January to February 1998) and Ian Wright (August to September 1998). (Infostrada)
    • 49' Liverpool substitution: David N'Gog eplaces Meireles, who is evidently still feeling that knock he picked up in the first half.
    • 48' Tomkins gets a diving header on to Gerrard's cross and Liverpool have a corner. Suarez's delivery is cleared and the Uruguayan's second ball goes over the bar.
    • 47' Dalglish has Maxi Rodriguez and David N'Gog on the bench if he wants to spruce up his attack.
    • 46' The second half is underway! No changes for either side at the break.
    • 45+2' The half-time whistle blows, and West Ham are deservedly in front at the break.
    • 45+1' That's three goals in three Premier League games for Demba Ba.
    • 45' GOAL!! Demba Ba doubles West Ham's lead, and it's another beauty! O'Neil chips the ball to the Senegalese who beats Reina at the near ost with a lovely diving header! Well, it was more of a falling header really. Very unorthodox, but very effective!
    • 44' That's desperately unlucky for Martin Kelly. The 20-year-old has really established himself int he Liverpool team this season.
    • 43' Liverpool substitution: Former West Ham captain Joe Cole replaces Kelly. Liverpool reverting to a flat back four.
    • 42' Kelly hares down to the byline and pulls up with no one touching him. It looks as though his hamstring may have gone. It doesn't look good for the young full-back.
    • 41' It will be Noble who will bend it over the wall... The effort curls wide of the ear post. Reina just watched it sail by.
    • 40' Lucas fouls Hitzelsperger and West Ham have a free-kick in ideal range for the German to fire one on goal.
    • 39' Kelly has a pop from range, but the low shot is an easy stop and hold for Green.
    • 38' West Ham doing a good job of starving Liverpool of the ball at the moment. They are not playing like a team who are bottom of the table, that's for sure.
    • 37' O'Neil has adjudged to have impeded Danny Wilson as the pair jotle for the ball inside the box.
    • 35' Now at the other end Suarez gets a little kick in the calf from Tomkins just inside the area and goes down theatrically. Both borderline decisions, and Halsey gives neither.
    • 34' Ba goes down in the Liverpool box. No chance of a penalty there.
    • 33' Meireles dithers on the ball and Parker nicks it off him. Jacobsen's cross is blocked. Meireles appears to be struggling following that challenge from Parker.
    • 32' Tomkins is penalised for a foul in midfield. Liverpool again take it short.
    • 31' With half an hour gone, West Ham are still looking good for their lead. Liverpool are struggling to find Suarez and Kuyt.
    • 30' West Ham have kept only one clean sheet in their last eight Premier League home games against Liverpool. (Opta)
    • 29' Suarez is undone by a good strong challenge by James TOmkins. The Uruguayan goes down expecting a free-kick, but none is forthcoming.
    • 27' Gerrard runs in front of Lucas just as the Brazilian was about to clear the ball and he almost gives it away to Piquionne as a result. The danger is eventually cleared. Liverpool on the back foot at the moment.
    • 26' Piquionne fires a lethal low ball across the six-yard box and Ba just fails to reach it with an outstretched boot!
    • 24' Reina punches clear and Suarez leads the break. He passes to Kuyt, who comes inside before firing into the side netting!
    • 23' Ba gives Jamie Carragher a cheeky shove in the back and wins a corner1 The Liverpool veteran is none too pleased about that.
    • 22' Scott Parker celebrates his fifth leaguer goal of the season by planting a kiss on the lens of the touchline camera!
    • 21' GOAL!! Super goal from Scott Parker! The West Ham skipper plays a one-two with hitzelsperger and toe-pokes a classy finish past Reina from the edge of the box! once again Parker comes up trumps for the Hammers!
    • 20' Nice move forward from West Ham. Gary O'Neil, Noble and Ba all involved. Hitzelsperger rifles another strike from range right at Reina.
    • 19' Hitzelsperger turns and finds Parker. The through ball is into the path of Piquionne, but it's got too much on it and Liverpool have a goal kick.
    • 18' Demba Ba chases down Reina as the ball is passed back to the Liverpool keeper, but the Spaniard stays cool and turns away from him.
    • 17' Suarez has not scored in an away match in almost six months (all competitions). He scored his last goal away from home at De Graafschap in a 0-5 win for Ajax on August 29. (Infostrada)
    • 16' Piquionne rolls past Kelly on the wing and claims he is shoved off the ball. Liverpool are given the throw.
    • 15' Replays show Johnson's header hit Piquionne oon the hand as it was en route for goal. not sure how much the French striker knew about it. Some referees would have given that.
    • 14' Johnson really attacks the corner and gets a solid header to it, but it doesnt make it through the crowded area and West Ham clear their lines.
    • 13' Hitzelsperger's corner is a good one, but Liverpool clear it after a shot is blocked. Kelly bends in a great cross that flies just over the head of Meireles. Hitzelsperger puts it behind for a corner.
    • 12' A pretty high standard of football so far, even though there are yet to be any clear chances. The ball has barely gone out of play in the last few minutes. Ah, now West Ham have the game's first corner...
    • 11' Nice turn from Lars Jacobsen. Very cool under pressure as Suarez was hounding him.
    • 10' Gerrard pings a ball into the West Ham box but Meireles can't guide his header into the path of Suarez.
    • 9' Meireles looking very lively in these early stages. He has scored in five of Liverpool’s last six games.
    • 8' Liverpool have won their last four Premier League games against West Ham, scoring three goals in each match. (Opta)
    • 7' Piquionne muscles his way past Martin Kelly and is sent flying by Martin Skrtel. The Slovakian is the first player to go into referee Mark Halsey's book.
    • 6' Scott Parker slides in and brings down Glen Johnson in midfield. Gerrard ensures Liverpool keep the ball.
    • 5' Raul Meireles runs into the West Ham box to meet a long ball with a header... Over the bar. The Portuguese was just allowed to run through the West Ham defence there.
    • 4' Hitzelsperger has a dig from distance. It's well struck but right at Pepe Reina. The German is making his 100th Premier League appearance, and his first for West Ham.
    • 3' Thomas Hitzelsperger does well to win the ball in midfield. Wayne Bridge's cross from deep is over Frederic Piquionne's head.
    • 2' Liverpool seeing all of the ball in the opening coupel of minutes. Suarez lifts a ball intot he box for Steven Geerard to chase but it's too long and runs to Robert Green.
    • 1' Luis Suarez and Dirk Kuyt kick off for Liverpool and we're underway!
    • 13:27 The players are walking out on to the Upton Park turf now. We'll be underway shortly...
    • 13:25 Today's referee is Mark Halsey. The Bolton official is one of the most lenient in the Premier League, showing just 32 yellow cards in his 15 matches so far this season. The only player he has sent off this term is a Liverpool one, after he gave Lucas his marching orders in the 2-0 defeat at Stoke back in November.
    • 13:20 Liverpool's form has been a lot more emphatic since Kenny Dalglish returned to the dugout. Since drawing with Everton on his return to Anfield, a run of four straight wins over Wolves, Fulham, Stoke and Chelsea propelled them up the table. That run was halted by the disappointing 1-1 draw with Wigan last time out, but the Reds' resurgence is undeniable. Can they continue that run this afternoon?
    • 13:15 West Ham's recent form has been decidedly mixed. Since losing 5-0 and 3-0 to Newcastle and Arsenal respectively they have drawn at Everton, won at Blackpool, lost at home to Birmingham and fought back from 3-0 down to draw at West Brom. Of course, this being an Avram Grant side, they are going good guns in the FA Cup, and they thrashed Burnley 5-1 last Monday to book a place in the sixth round. Which Hammers side will turn up today?
    • 13:10 HEAD-TO-HEAD: West Ham and Liverpool have met 107 times in the league. West Ham have won 21, Liverpool 57. They have met 31 times in the Premier League. West Ham have won five, Liverpool 19. Liverpool are unbeaten in their last six league matches against West Ham, winning the last four and scoring three goals in each of these victories. Their only defeat in the last 17 was 1-0 at Upton Park in January 2008, courtesy of Mark Noble's injury-time penalty. (Infostrada)
    • 13:05 Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard return after three games out with a groin injury. Gerrard was not risked in Thursday night's Europa League game against Sparta Prague but manager Kenny Dalglish later said the midfielder was close to fitness. Daniel Agger came off in that match and has not recovered, so it's a Premier League debut for Scotland international defender Danny Wilson, who is one of three centre-backs in Kenny Dalglish's 5-3-2 formation. Liverpool team page
    • 13:00 Matthew Upson has recovered from an Achilles problem to feature for the Hammers. Victor Obinna is out with a foot injury and Robbie Keane is missing with a calf. Kieron Dyer is still a fortnight away from fitness, while Jack Collison is continuing his recovery from a long-standing knee injury and could be back towards the end of next month. After scoring on his West Ham debut against Burnley in the FA Cup last week, Thomas Hitzlsperger keeps his place in midfield. West Ham team page

    • 12:50 The Hammers are currently bottom of the table following yesterday's matches, but they can move back out of the relegation zone if they win by three clear goals. Liverpool can move within three points of fifth-placed Chelsea with a victory in East London. Premier League table
