    • 90' Full-time: West Ham United 4-1 Southampton. West Ham secure a convincing 4-1 victory as their solid start to the season continues, while Southampton's woes towards the bottom of the table are exacerbated further.
    • 90+2' Jordan Spence finds Jarvis but the winger is adjudged to have been offside when receiving the ball.
    • 90' West Ham sub: Jordan Spence comes on for James Tomkins.
    • 90' Four minutes of stoppage time to be played.
    • 90' Southampton sub: James Ward-Prowse comes on for Steven Davis.
    • 88' GOAL FOR WEST HAM UNITED! WEST HAM UNITED 4-1 SOUTHAMPTON (Modibo Maiga). Modibo Maiga puts the icing firmly on the West Ham cake as he drives forward with the ball and curls it beautifully beyond Artur Boruc.
    • 86' Southampton continue to drive forward but subsitute Mayuka's low strike is pounced on by Jaaskelainen.
    • 85' Jaaskelainen and Winston Reid have a verbal spat after the keeper is slow to gather a ball hit forward for Lambert to run onto.
    • 84' Artur Boruc is unable to keep in Jarvis deflected cross as West Ham win a corner. Noble's delivery fails to beat the first man however.
    • 82' West Ham sub: Andy Carroll comes off to a standing ovation and Modibo Maiga enters the field of play.
    • 81' Schneiderlin is booked after bringing down Carroll
    • 81' Lambert is flagged offside after almost being played through inside the box.
    • 79' First yellow card of the match and it goes to Hooiveld for fouling Carroll. Noble steps up over the free-kick from 20 yards out, but his low drive fails to get past a body of players.
    • 77' The ball is clipped forward for Yoshida but Jaaskelainen is out quickly to gather.
    • 75' Southampton are starting to tire having fallen 3-1 behind. Defensive lapses have cost them for all three goals.
    • 72' GOAL FOR WEST HAM UNITED! WEST HAM UNITED 3-1 SOUTHAMPTON (Mark Noble). Mark Noble cooly sends Artur Boruc the wrong way with his low finish to restore West Ham's two-goal lead.
    • 71' PENALTY FOR WEST HAM UNITED! Noble's delivery into the box finfds Carroll, but Fonte is climbing all over the striker and a penalty is awarded to West Ham.
    • 70' Southampton now in the ascendancy, as Clyne's right wing cross finds the head of Lambert whose header drifts wide of the West Ham goal.
    • 69' West Ham sub: Gary O'Neil comes on for Mohamed Diame
    • 68' Southampton win a free kick 20 yards out, and Lambert's curling effort with his first touch, goes agonisingly over Jaaskelainen's goal. Very close.
    • 66' Southampton subs: And having pulled a goal back, Saints introduce Rickie Lambert for Jay Rodriguez and Emmanuel Mayuka for Jason Puncheon.
    • 64' GOAL FOR SOUTHAMPTON! WEST HAM UNITED 2-1 SOUTHAMPTON (Adam Lallana). Southampton are right back in it, as Jay Rodriguez picks out Lallana whose smart turn and emphatic finish from 12 yards out gives Jaaskelainen no chance in the West Ham goal.
    • 63' Puncheon almost feeds Rodriguez through one-on-one but Jaaskelainen ios out quickly to smother.
    • 61' Another set piece for West Ham, and another scene of danger for Southampton. Noble's lofted delivery from the left finds Nolan whose shot is charged down by Boruc. Saints defending all at sea once more.
    • 59' The question will be how long before Southampton introduce Rickie Lambert, because West Ham remain in control and looked dangerous on the break through Diame before their defence recovered.
    • 56' More Southampton pressure as the ball finds its way to Yoshida, but he takes too long to strike at goal and Mohamed Diame can intercept for West Ham.
    • 55' The ball is prodded through to Jay Rodriguez, but he moves too early in receiving the ball in the West Ham box and is flagged offside.
    • 54' Do Prado curls in a cross from the left, but his delivery is overhit and goes out for a West Ham goal-kick.
    • 53' Goal-scorer Noble goes down clutching his right knee, but he seems to be ok to continue.
    • 51' Southampton have attempted to steady themselves after those goals, but the West Ham defence remains disciplined in closing out Do Prado's runs.
    • 48' GOAL FOR WEST HAM UNITED! WEST HAM 2-0 SOUTHAMPTON (Kevin Nolan). What a start to the second-half for West Ham! Yossi Benayoun travels with no pressure down the right-flank and his delivery low across the box is tapped home by Kevin Nolan. Double blow for the visitors.
    • 47' GOAL FOR WEST HAM UNITED! WEST HAM 1-0 SOUTHAMPTON (Mark Noble). The free-kick won for Hooiveld's misdemeanour is taken 35 yards from goal by Mark Noble. His delivery flies beyond everyone, including Boruc, and ends up in the Saints goal. James Collins claimed a touch but he didn't get anything on it.
    • 46' No changes at half-time, as Carroll goes down following a heavy challenge from Hooiveld.
    • 46' And Southampton get us back underway for the second-half, as both teams look to break the deadlock.
    • 45' Half-time: West Ham United 0-0 Southampton
    • 45+1' We are going to have one minute of stoppage time at the end of the half, as Carroll goes down after being beaten in the air by Jose Fonte.
    • 45' Diame finds Jarvis whose left-wing cross is charged down. The ball eventually finds its way back into the Southampton box, and Carroll's header rebounds off Hooiveld's chest. West Ham claim handball and a penalty but the referee waves away the protests.
    • 43' Puncheon flicks the ball through for Lallana, who is flagged offside but replays seem to suggest otherwise.
    • 42' Do Prado finds Yoshida who darts down the left flank, but he overruns with the ball and it goes out for a West Ham goal kick.
    • 40' Noble's delivery for the second corner drifts harmlessly onto the roof of Boruc's net. Poor from the West Ham midfielder.
    • 39' West Ham win another corner as they continue to pressure, and with Collins arriving, Hooiveld can only head behind for another corner for the Hammers.
    • 38' Tomkins is back on for the free-kick, and Noble's inswinging delivery is headed clear by Guly Do Prado.
    • 38' Tomkins is off receiving treatment. In the meantime, Jarvis wins a free-kick on the left flank deep in Southampton territory after a poor challenge from Clyne.
    • 36' West Ham defender James Tomkins goes down in a heap clutching his knee after twisting awkwardly and the physio is on.
    • 35' Guly Do Prado smashes a low shot wide of Jaaskelainen's goal, but it would have had to have been something special to beat the West Ham keeper from 20 yards.
    • 33' Yoshida's turn to blaze well over now from long-range for Southampton, as West Ham block off the forward central route.
    • 32' West Ham have their own free-kick opportunity now, but although Nolan's dinked delivery is held up by Carroll, he fails to attempt a strike at goal.
    • 31' Another free-kick for Southampton as Puncheon is felled. From a similar position as their last, Rodriguez takes it but whips the ball into the box. West Ham clear the danger though.
    • 29' Benayoun, who makes his first Premier League start for West Ham since May 2007, has proven to be quite rusty out on the right flank for the Hammers so far. Saints left-back Maya Yoshida certainly has the measure of the Israeli so far.
    • 28' Clyne balloons his delivery from the right well over the West Ham goal. But Southampton have shown some degree of quality as we approach the half-hour mark.
    • 26' Lallana wins the free-kick off of Collins... it's a promising position, just off-centre 25 yards from goal. Rodriguez takes it and blazes the ball well over Jaaskelainen's goal.
    • 24' Carroll now attempting to turn provider for West Ham, as his whipped delivery from the left is headed clear.
    • 23' Jay Rodriguez mis-times his run as the West Ham defence step up, and is duly flagged offside.
    • 22' Schneiderlin picks out Jay Rodriguez, and his controlled effort towards goal travels just wide of Jaaskelainen's far post. The Finnish keeper would have been relieved to see that drift out.
    • 20' Jarvis wins West Ham's first corner of off Clyne. But it's convincing goalkeeping from Boruc as he gathers Mark Noble's deep delivery.
    • 18' Decent chance for West Ham, as Jarvis' left wing cross is palmed away by an outstretched Boruc. James Tomkins' follow-up header is goalbound and headed away by Jos Hooiveld.
    • 16' Southampton controlling possession in the middle of the field, but West Ham win the ball and attempt the quick counter. However, Morgan Schniederlin is back to snuff out the danger.
    • 13' Lallana brings in Nathaniel Clyne down the right and his cross is deflected behind for a Southampton corner. Puncheon's delivery finds Jos Hooiveld at the back post, but his header is comfortably claimed by Jussi Jaaskelainen. Confident start from the visitors though.
    • 11' Good movement from Southampton's Rodriguez to peel off the two centre-backs to receive a long-ball, but he just mis-times his run forward and is flagged offside.
    • 10' Puncheon feeds the ball to Lallana whose cross along the edge of the box finds lone striker Guly Do Prado, but he gets the ball stuck under his feet and fails to get the shot away.
    • 9' West Ham go on the attack and Yossi Benayoun's delivery from the right is turned away. Both sides creating chances in these opening phases, but neither goalkeeper tested as of yet.
    • 7' Adam Lallana attempts a cross from the right, but the ball is charged down at the expense of a Saints corner. Puncheon's delivery this time is powerfully headed away by Carroll defending in his own box.
    • 6' Well Boruc almost gifts West Ham an opening, as his low clearance goes straight into the path of Andy Carroll whose drive at goal is charged down.
    • 5' The Saints have an early chance, as a low corner from Jason Puncheon seems to evade everyone in the box - Jay Rodriguez couldn't get anything on it - and West Ham hook the ball away.
    • 3' Artur Boruc is making his first start in the Southampton goal. He'll be hoping to settle down to life in the Premier League quickly - even though he has the leakiest defence in the league in front of him.
    • 2' Matt Jarvis swings in a cross from the left for West Ham but he is unable to pick out Andy Carroll and Southampton clear.
    • 1' West Ham get us underway for the first half...
    • 14:55 Just five minutes away from kick-off as the teams head out onto the pitch. The Hammers clad in their traditional claret and blue, with Southampton in a very unfitting canary yellow away shirt number.
    • 14:52 Southampton are the only side this season to have failed to register a single away point - they may need to turn to their top scorer this season, Rickie Lambert who starts on the bench, if they are to bring an end to that unwanted trend today.
    • 14:50 The results when these two teams faced each other in the Championship last term were 1-1 at Upton Park and 1-0 to Southampton at St Mary's. Although it should be noted that West Ham boss Sam Allardyce is unbeaten in his last seven Premier League matches against the Saints.
    • 14:45 While the Hammers sit comfortably in eighth, the same cannot be said of Southampton who lie just above the dropzone. After a difficult start to the campaign in which Saints faced the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal, they have begun to find some degree of form taking four points from their last three games, and will need another positive result at Upton Park today.
    • 14:40 So this afternoon's clash at Upton Park pits two of the teams promoted from the Championship last season. West Ham have made a decent start to life back in the top flight with three wins from their opening seven games, but will be looking to swiftly bounce back from their 3-1 home defeat to Arsenal sustained just before the International break.
    • 14:35 Jussi Jääskeläinen has made more saves (32) than any other goalkeeper in the top division this season, according to OptaJoe
    • 14.30 Southampton are missing record signing Gaston Ramirez for the trip to West Ham and the foreseeable future. The 21-year-old faces another four weeks out after problems related to a dead leg picked up before the international break and is joined on the sidelines by Frazer Richardson (thigh). Jack Cork, Danny Butterfield (both knee) and Tadanari Lee (elbow) are also out, but Nathaniel Clyne returns to start the match.
    • 14.25 James Tomkins replaces Guy Demel at right-back for West Ham while Winston Reid is fit to start the match. Yossi Benayoun makes his first start since he returned to the club on loan from Chelsea. He replaces Ricardo Vaz Te, who is missing with a dislocated shoulder problem. Southampton's leading scorer Rickie Lambert is on the bench but former Celtic and Poland goalkeeper Artur Boruc makes his debut for the visiting side.
    • 14:25 Saints have dropped the most points from winning positions in the PL. With those points, Southampton would be 2nd in the table, according to OptaJoe
