    • Queens Park Rangers
    • West Ham United
    • - 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+6' The final whistle is finally blown and West Ham keep QPR waiting for their first league of the season.
    • 90+5' Carroll takes the ball reall well on his chest, turns and thumps a strike on goal! Julio Cesar palms it away and the rebound just doesn't sit right for Carroll, who fires over the bar!
    • 90+3' Yet another booking, this time for Tomkins and it's another for time-wasting.
    • 90+1' Faurlin unleashes a decent effort from range that Jaaskelainen beats away! The strike was a good height for the keeper, but he still had to make the save.
    • 90' The fourth official indicates there will be six added minutes.
    • 89' Cisse is teed up by Zamora on the edge of the box and the shot takes a slight deflection and rebounds off Jaaskelainen!
    • 87' Vaz Te cheekily taps the ball away from Hill as the QPR defender was about to take a free-kick. Hill responds by pushing him to the floor. They are still chirping away at each other as the referee has a word with them. Time will be added on at the end to compensate.
    • 86' Some industrial language from Carroll there as he disagrees with a decision by the referee.
    • 84' QPR substitution: Junior Hoilett replaces Onuoha. Another attacking switch by Hughes.
    • 82' Some more good possession kept by West Ham. Nolan has two shots inside the box but both of them are blocked.
    • 81' Hill's cross is missed by Collins int he West Ham box and the ball rebounds off Zamora, who clearly wasn't expecting it to come to him.
    • 79' Carroll nods the ball back into the path of Vaz Te, whose strike requires a decent save from Julio Cesar!
    • 78' Collins gets booked for kicking the ball away. He's the seventh West Ham player to see a yellow card. That's an automatic fine for the club.
    • 76' QPR begin their quest to salvage a result from this match with 10 men by successfully defending a West Ham corner.
    • 75' DIAKITE SENT OFF! The Mali midfielder sees a second yellow card for a late challenge on Demel! He only came off the bench 20 minutes ago!
    • 72' West Ham substitution: Andy Carroll replaces Cole.
    • 71' Taarabt feeds Cisse's run from the left with a lovely slide-rule pass. Cisse goes for the near post but Jaaskelainen saves!
    • 69' Clattenburg is going mad with the cards now. He books Cole for an offence and then shows yellow to Nolan as well for his protestations.
    • 68' Diakite slips in front of Nolan. The West Ham captain plays a great through ball into the path of Cole. He's one-on-one with the keeper but sidefoots his effort woefully wide! Could that miss come back to haunt West Ham?
    • 67' Jaaskelainen has been booked for time-wasting as he prepared to take a goal-kick.
    • 66' Great touch in the area from Cisse tees up Granero. Great feet from the Spaniard as he digs out the shot but Jaaskelainen makes the save!
    • 66' The last quarter of this game is shaping up to be rather entertaining now.
    • 65' Taarabt scored within and minute-and-a-half of coming on as a substitute – the second-fastest goal by a sub this season after Edin Dzeko at Fulham on Saturday.
    • 63' Taarabt flicks on Granero's ball forward and Cisse hits the deck under the challenge from Guy Demel... No penalty says the referee!
    • 62' McCartney now goes into the book. Taarabt may well target the left-back now.
    • 60' McCartney goes bombing down the left after Diakite is tackled. The full-back's cross is cut out before it gets to Cole, and West Ham have another corner.
    • 59' Tomkins makes a crucial tackle on Cisse just as it looked like the Frenchman was about to sent clear by Zamora's through ball.
    • 58' Taarabt gets a booking for his goal celebration, and then Diakite follows him into the book right after the restart for a foul on Vaz Te!
    • 57' GOAL!! Taarabt gets one back for QPR!! The mercurial midfielder brings the ball down, comes inside, feints and then sends a lovely curling finish right into the far corner! What an impact sub!
    • 56' QPR substitution: Adel Taarabt and Samba Diakite replace Park and Wright-Phillips.
    • 54' The home fans - all 16,000 or so of them - are starting to get behind their team a bit more, too. Can the players respond?
    • 53' Cole sends M'Bia to ground as he challenged the defender for the ball. This has been better from QPR since the break.
    • 51' Nedum Onuoha gets the better of Jarvis on this occasion, but he's been having trouble shackling the winger all evening.
    • 50' Tom Holloway ‏@tholloway93: "QPR not looking good, they've got the players to get out of this rut though... surely?" - Too good to go down.
    • 50' Mikey Kenefick (‏@Mikekeno7): "Mackie really needs to come on for Qpr now. Cant understand why he didnt start."
    • 49' QPR have the worst second-half record in the Premier League this season – netting once and conceding eight. Not exactly encouraging, is it?
    • 48' Good run by Jarvis before his cross causes problems. Nolan floats the ball to Diame who shapes his body up well to unleash a solid strike that Julio Cesar parries!
    • 47' Vaz Te fires in the first corner of the second half, and somehow it bounces in the middle of the QPR box and away without anyone getting a touch!
    • 46' The second half is underway!
    • HT Keith Schofield (‏@keiths47) says: "As a Hammer fan totally delighted so far. I thought Rodgers or AVB was going to be the first to go but Mark Hughes not safe" - Still a bit early for that, maybe.
    • 45+6' The half-time whistle is greeted by plenty of boos from the home fans. Hard to see a way back for them at the moment. Share your half-time thoughts with me via Twitter @tony_mabert. Follow on Twitter
    • 45+6' Granero floats the free-kick into the box and it's headed back across goal by M'Bia, but the flag was up for a clear offside against the Cameroonian.
    • 45+5' Ji-Sung Park turns in midfield and is sent flying by a late sliding tackle from Noble. That's the second booking of the game.
    • 45+4' QPR coach Mark Bowen is having a moan at the fourth official about something. Probably just warming up for when his players get in the dressing room sat half-time.
    • 45+2' QPR win a corner after Zamora's strike is deflected behind. Granero's cross sails harmlessly over everyone in the box and out for a goal kick.
    • 45+1' We are in the first of five added minutes at the end of the first half.
    • 45' West Ham take a quick corner which doesn't lead to much. You can't blame them for trying, though. QPR have looked awful in those situations thus far.
    • 43' Zamora rises well to meet Wright-Phillips' cross with a header, though he struggles to generate the power necessary to trouble Jaaskelainen.
    • 41' The way things are going, QPR are on course to stay bottom of the table. Not only have they not got a win yet, they haven't even scored at home yet.
    • 40' At the other end West Ham win another corner. The clearing header lands for Jarvis to hit well over the bar on the volley.
    • 39' The free-kick is sent into the box. It drops for Cisse who goes for a brilliantly improvised volley that is saved by Jaaskelainen!
    • 38' Wright-Phillips is fouled by Diame as he crosses the halfway line with the ball. The West Ham midfielder gets the first booking of the game.
    • 36' That was so poor from QPR. That's twice now they have just gone to sleep as the ball has crossed their penalty area., and twice they have conceded from it.
    • 35' GOAL!! West Ham double their lead! Noble's corner causes a scramble in the six-yard box that ends with QPR only half-clearing the ball. Tomkins hits it across to Vaz Te who somehow sneaks it between Julio Cesar and the post!
    • 35' West Ham substitution: George McCartney replaces O'Brien. Two enforced changes in the Hammers defence already.
    • 34' Referee Mark Clattenburg has a word with Granero after the Spaniard fouled Mark Noble. Again, no card shown.
    • 33' England manager Roy Hodgson is at Loftus Road this evening. Quite who he might be looking at is anyone's guess.
    • 32' Cole is back up on his feet now. He just needed a minute to recover from that bruising clash with Nelsen.
    • 31' West Ham have another player down now. Carlton Cole was hauled down by Ryan Nelsen, who then caught the striker in the ribs afterwards.
    • 30' The Hammers have not won any of their last eight Premier League away matches (D3 L5).
    • 28' West Ham keeping the ball well as they kill any momentun QPR would be hoping of building now.
    • 27' Cisse has a pop from long range which doesn't trouble Jaaskelainen.
    • 26' West Ham lump a succession of balls into the box but QPR make sure none of them yields a chance.
    • 25' Tomkins does well to intercept a through ball Granero tried to thread through. Still neither side is tightening up in midfield.
    • 23' West Ham substitution: Tomkins replaces Reid.
    • 23' Reid is back on his feet. No stretcher needed, which is an encouraging sign.
    • 21' It looks as though Reid was knocked out cold for a moment there. James Tomkins is warming up and looks ready to come on.
    • 20' Winston Reid is receiving treatment now after he got clattered by his own keeper in that passage of play.
    • 19' This time Granero gets his set piece right. Jussi Jaaskelainen comes for it but completely misses the ball. It rebounds off James Collins and right into the goal mouth before it is hacked clear! Close call there.
    • 18' Wright-Phillips is brought down on the edge of the box by Joey O'Brien. The Irishman escapes a booking as Granero prepares to take the free-kick...
    • 17' Jarvis attacks down the right now after switching flanks with Vaz Te. Both teams seemingly giving the other licence to come forward with ease whenever they have possession.
    • 15' West Ham also scored an early goal in their previous London derby this season – Kevin Nolan netting in the first minute of their 3-0 home victory against Fulham.
    • 12' Granero drives forward with the ball again before popping it wide to Wright-Phillips. The Spaniard gets the return pass inside the box and fires high and wide of the near post!
    • 11' Cisse charges his way down the right flank. He claims he was impeded by Mark Noble but play is allowed to continue.
    • 10' West Ham sweep forward. Mohamed Diame's strike from range deflects off a defender and Julio Cesar can only watch helplessly as the ball loops off target.
    • 9' Clint Hill floats a set piece into the West Ham box now. Once again, the Hammers are adept at repelling an aerial attack.
    • 8' Shaun Wright-Phillips wins a corner for the home side. Again Granero's delivery is disappointing.
    • 6' Quite an open game so far. West Ham seeing slightly more of the ball.
    • 4' That's Jarvis's first since the final day of last season. The winger scored seven goals in his last 15 games of the 2011-12 campaign.
    • 3' GOAL!! Matt Jarvis puts West Ham ahead! Kevin Nolan and Ricardo Vaz Te exchange passes down the rigth flank. Nolan completely miscues his shot after the ball is pulled back to him from the byline. The ball floats over to Jarvis at the far post and the former Wolves winger simply nods home for his first West Ham goal!
    • 3' Djibril Cisse is fouled and QPR send plenty of men into the box awaiting the delivery. It's from Granero and it's poor.
    • 2' Great play from Esteban Granero who brings the ball out of defence and fends off his marker before making the pass.
    • 1' The match is underway!
    • 19:59 There is a buoyant atmosphere inside Loftus Road on this Monday night. QPR will kick off once referee Mark Clattenburg blows his whistle...
    • 19:55 The players are lined up in the Loftus Road tunnel now. You can share your thoughts during the game with me via Twitter @tony_mabert. Who are you backing?
    • 19:50 Sam Allardyce and Mark Hughes have met 11 times as opposing coaches in the Premier League, with Allardyce winning just two (W2 D4 L5) and none of the last six (W0 D2 L4). This will be their first meeting though where one or other has not been manager of Blackburn.
    • 19:45 Head-to-head: This is the 47th league meeting between these two clubs. QPR have won 14 and West Ham 17 of the previous 46. This is their first meeting since November 2004 in the Championship – West Ham winning 2-1 at Upton Park with both goals from Marlon Harewood. Former Hammer Bobby Zamora has scored all three of QPR’s Premier League goals this season and from just four shots on target.
    • 19:40 This is the last match of a round of Premier League matches which has already delivered a lot of memorable results and performances. Luis Suarez's hat-trick against Norwich City naturally saw him secure a place in our Team of the Week, but who joined the Liverpool star? Team of the Week: Super Suarez
    • 19:35 "With QPR having been very active in the market, expectations have been raised and with it the need for immediate results. The first game, a 5-0 defeat by Swansea, was probably one they didn’t expect. All keepers make mistakes but from the outside it looks as though somebody then told them Julio Cesar was available — they needed another keeper anyway, although they probably didn’t expect someone of his quality to be on offer — so they went for it."

    • 19:30 QPR keeper Julio Cesar has made a save every 16.4 minutes so far, but Allardyce has bemoaned the fact the Brazilian has deposed Robert Green in the team. "It seems unlikely that we will be facing our former goalkeeper Rob Green at Loftus Road. I’m not privy to what has happened there, but I would only emphasise the short termism in professional football these days. This game has no patience any more, there’s no time for forward planning and future development - it’s all about month to month."
    • 19:25 QPR's Junior Hoilett is looking forward to being reunited with West Ham manager Sam Allardyce, who was his boss for a time at Blackburn. "He taught me a lot in my career," Hoilett said. "I enjoyed playing under him and he is a great manager, but I'm looking forward to getting the three points off him on Monday." Read more here
    • 19:20 As mentioned previously, Stephane M'Bia makes his first appearance for QPR following his move from Marseille. The Cameroon midfielder, who is playing in defence this evening, is the 45th different player to be used by the club since they came up from the Championship in summer 2011.
    • 19:15 Andy Carroll is back on the West Ham bench after he picked up a hamstring injury on his debut for the club. Jack Collison (knee) is unavailable but Yossi Benayoun is among the substitutes following his loan move back to the Hammers. West Ham team page
    • 19:15 QPR are without four first-team defenders. Anton Ferdinand, Jose Bosingwa and Fabio are all out with hamstring injuries and Armand Traore (leg) is also unavailable. Striker Andy Johnson is out with a long-term knee injury but midfielder Adel Taarabt returns to the bench after missing the last two games with a hamstring problem. Stephane M'Bia makes his debut for the club. QPR team page

    • 19:05 QPR are still looking for their first Premier League win of the season. They are bottom of the table on just two points from five games, below Reading on goal difference. West Ham, by contrast, will move into the top six if they win by three clear goals this evening. Premier League table
