90'+3
And that's it. Sam Allardyce has kept West Ham in the Premier League for another season with this emphatic win. What will happen to Tottenham? Their European fate is still in question after a frustrating afternoon for Tim Sherwood. Thanks for your company this afternoon.
90'+1
Great save from Adrian! He hasn't had a great day at the office, but he does brilliantly to tip over Rose's effort.
90'
Matt Jarvis is the only person in the whole ground who thinks he's been brought down for a penalty. Not given, unsurprisingly.
89'
Sandro's volley is very, very high and into the stands.
West Ham United Substitution
87'
 
Kevin Nolan is replaced by Matt Jarvis.
86'
Tottenham are calling for a penalty! Sandro's cross hits the arms of Matt Taylor, but neither the referee or his assistant are moved.

Meanwhile, Sandro is booked for a foul on Mark Noble.

That's Carroll's last involvement of the afternoon - he gets a huge ovation as he's replaced by Carlton Cole.
82'
Another couple of chances for Andy Carroll, including a far-post downward header. He looks disappointed in himself.
80'
Only once in West Ham's previous 17 Premier League seasons have they lost their final home match of the campaign (winning nine and drawing seven: that was the 3-0 defeat against Sunderland on 22 May 2011.
75'
With 15 minutes to go, it looks like West Ham will indeed get their league double over Tottenham - and their third victory over them this season.
73'
Great chance for Soldado, who means to shoot but in effect squares the ball across the box.
72'
Andy Carroll is really keen on getting a long-distance shot in the net today. Another attempt, but this one's significantly wide and doesn't even trouble Lloris.

69'
 
Lots of nasty little challenges and squabbles going in now. Booking for Soldado, who's only just come on.
68'
Carroll gets his head to it but can't get enough direction on it.
67'
Ball in to the far post where Demel lurks, and the Tottenham defence combine to concede another corner.
66'
 
Sigurdsson is replaced by Roberto Soldado; Paulinho is replaced by Sandro.

65'
Aaron Lennon skies a shot over the bar, much to the amusement and ironic cheers of the West Ham fans.
63'
Nolan taps Noble's free-kick to Taylor, who hits it from the edge of the area, and once more Lloris claims.
63'
Naughton's just wrestled Diame to the ground. One presumes he's remembered he's already been booked in this game.
62'
Reid clears that corner, and the goalkeeper will be relieved that fumble didn't have any consequences.
61'
Difficult ball in from Eriksen - Adrian's not quite sure how to deal with it at his near post, and it's out for a corner.
58'
West Ham seem to have too much time and space for their own good here on occasions - so many options for them as Tottenham defend desperately.
57'
West Ham have had plenty of chances to add to their two-goal lead - will it be enough? They've lost six Premier League matches from a winning position this season, the most in the division. The record number of defeats from a winning position in a Premier League season is seven (Blackburn and Southampton in 1992/93, and Wolves in 2011/12).
56'
More great work from Lloris! Noble is left unmarked in the middle, but the goalkeeper is brave and comes out to meet the shot with his feet.
53'
The frantic first-half pace is slowing a little in the London sunshine.
51'
Lloris really is doing a tremendous job today - he thwarts follow-ups from Nolan and Taylor as well.
50'
Great shot by Diame! Downing's ball in falls to him with his back to goal, and his overhead kick is batted away by Lloris.
49'
Adrian races across to challenge Adebayor, pushing him wider and away from goal. The West Ham fans are not happy that he's loitering out there and isn't back between the sticks.
47'
Tottenham are starting slowly, passing it around across the back line.
46'
And there's also the fact that Tottenham have come from behind to claim 17 points this season - more than any other Premier League side.
46'
As we kick off the second half, Tottenham fans can perhaps take heart: the team have come back to win on three occasions in Premier League history having been behind by a two-goal margin (or greater) at half-time – all three such wins have come away from home, with the last two coming in London derbies (3-2 win at Arsenal in November 2010 and 4-3 at West Ham in March 2007).

45'+2
Half-time. Well, it was an evenly-contested match for the first quarter, with end-to-end possession and fistfuls of half-chances, but that red card for Younes Kaboul has turned the game. Can Tottenham come back from this?
45'+1
Another chance for Andy Carroll - another left-footed shot, and again just wide of the post.
45'
Tim Sherwood will be livid. When you're one man down, you really don't want your remaining players to be defending like that. I don't imagine Lloris will be very happy either.
44'
 
GOAL! It's Stewart Downing who takes it, and it slices right through the wall, between Adebayor and Paulinho. Terrible defending to give Downing his first goal for West Ham.
West Ham United Goal

Left Footed - Bottom Right

43'
 
A booking for Dawson, after a foul on Mark Noble. Free-kick again, and Andy Carroll will fancy that again.

42'
An interesting record which Younes Kaboul won't want to claim - he's now the player with the most Premier League red cards for Tottenham, with four.
40'
Spurs are having a better spell of possession here. Paulinho's shot is blocked by Taylor, and out for a throw-in to be taken by Naughton.
39'
It's floated in from the left, and Lloris connects with a solid punch out.
38'
Free-kick to West Ham following a handball. Noble lines up to take.
36'
Taylor fizzes in a shot from the edge of the box, and Lloris tips it round his left-hand post.
36'
Reid heads backwards towards Adrian, who has to work to grab it ahead of the onrushing Spurs players.
35'
Another ball in from McCartney, this time towards the head of Andy Carroll. Lloris manages to claim it ahead of him.
33'
That could well have been another own goal there! Rose tries to usher the ball out from McCartney's cross, but actually he smacks it towards the goal. Lloris is alert, though.
31'
McCartney pops up at the far post and throws himself dramatically at the ball from Downing's cross.
30'
That's Younes Kaboul's fifth Premier League red card – but the first in the first half of a match. His previous quickest Premier League red card came after 59 mins, in their 4-0 defeat at Chelsea on March 8th 2014.
28'
 
That was Kane's last contribution of the afternoon - he's replaced now by Vlad Chiriches.

West Ham United Goal

Header - Top Left

27'
 
GOAL! Well. After a dramatic few minutes, West Ham take the lead. Carroll heads it across the Tottenham defence, and it takes a deflection off the top of Kane's head and into the net.
26'
Carroll takes it - it's a fantastic left-footed blast, and Lloris does excellently to push that away.
25'
It's going to be a free-kick, just outside the box.

Kaboul is sent off! He's the last man and brings down Downing, who's cutting across the field and doesn't have chance to get his shot in. It's outside the box, but it's a foul.
23'
A quarter of the way in, and despite lots of half-chances at both ends, still no goals. History suggests it won't stay that way - there has not been a goalless draw in a Premier League fixture with a Saturday 12.45pm (local time) kick-off in over 15 months, since QPR’s 0-0 home draw v Norwich on Feb 2nd 2013.
22'
Corner in from Eriksen, straight back out again.
21'
Hefty cross in from Kane, cleared by Nolan.
21'
West Ham really are packing out the midfield.

First booking of the afternoon for Naughton, going in two-footed on Taylor.
18'
 
Carroll is flagged offside, although he does seem to be level when Downing plays the ball in. Just as well for Spurs, Dawson and Lloris get themselves in a tangle.
17'
West Ham's third corner of the afternoon. Lots of squabbling in the middle, and Spurs hold tight to get it clear.
16'
Up the other end again, and Downing works hard but skies his shot over the crossbar.
15'
Header from Paulinho, leaning backwards, and held by Adrian.
14'
It seems like Lloris fancies playing as a sweeper today.

14: Lloris takes a risk as he dribbles past the on-rushing Carroll, narrowly avoiding the striker as he bears down. 0-0 #WHUFC #COYI

12'
Eriksen is trying to put his foot on the ball in midfield and West Ham are simply not having it.
11'
Really competitive match so far - plenty of chances and plenty of mistakes all over the shop.
9'
Harry Kane clearly has the job of hassling Adrian all afternoon. He keeps closing him down and the goalkeeper does not look comfortable under that kind of pressure.
8'
Lennon takes on McCartney down the right. Insert your own joke here.
7'
Another set piece for West Ham - Andy Carroll has a shot which he claims was deflected by a handball. Lloris takes a few attempts to collect the corner after it hits his crossbar. Plenty going on here!
6'
If Spurs do score, however, it is likely that Erikson will play a vital role: he's provided the most Premier League assists in 2014, with eight.
5'
Lovely build-up play from Tottenham between Kane, Eriksen and Adebayor, but the latter plays it into the arms of Adrian.
5'
Deep in from the left to the far post - not a great delivery, but nobody takes charge. It bobbles around before a grateful Lloris finally manages to swallow it.
4'
Downing wins the first corner of the game.
3'
Kaboul is solid in the centre, clearing a cross into the box with ease.
1'
Harry Kane runs in to challenge Adrian, who proceeds to boot the ball right into him. That could have gone anywhere.

Kick-off: We're under-way at the Boleyn Ground for the final home game of the season! #WHUFC #COYI

Dawson and Nolan to centre. Lads into huddle. We will kick-off.

12:45
Kick-off!

The teams file out amidst the bubbles - the bubble machine is on excellent form today, it seems.

David Ginola isn't happy with the frequent changing of Spurs managers: "We need stability," he emphasises.

Tim Sherwood: "We don't want to give them a lift. I've tried to pick the best players who'll put their bodies on the line...Be up for the fight. Show you've got the stomach for it. If you're not up for the battle, then they'll get the scraps, they'll score the goals, and we'll get beat."

Andy Carroll is making the 200th all-competitions appearance of his club career. He made his debut in Newcastle’s 1-0 UEFA Cup group stage away win v Palermo in November 2006.

Cast your mind back 13 years. On this day in 2003, West Ham, under Trevor Brooking, beat Chelsea 1-0 at Upton Park in their final Premier League home match of that season, with a goal from Paolo Di Canio. They still got relegated the following weekend. Spurs didn't have a great day either - they lost 5-1 at Middlesbrough.
12:20
Our referee today is Phil Dowd: West Ham haven't won their last 14 Premier League matches with him in charge since a 3-1 home victory against Fulham on 18 January 2009.
12:05
So that's a change apiece - Matty Taylor replacing Matty Jarvis for West Ham, and Gylfi Sigurdsson replacing Nacer Chadli. We're 40 minutes away from kick-off.
12:05
Teams: WEST HAM: Adrian, Reid, McCartney, Nolan, Tomkins, Carroll, Taylor, Noble, Demel, Diame, Downing. Subs: Jarvis, Armero, Vaz Te, Collins, Jaaskelainen, C Cole, Nocerino. /// TOTTENHAM: Lloris; Naughton, Dawson, Kaboul, Rose; Lennon, Paulinho, Sigurdsson, Eriksen; Adebayor, Kane. Subs: Friedel, Chiriches, Fryers, Bentaleb, Pritchard, Sandro, Soldado.
12:05
Will Tim Sherwood still be in post next season? "I'm just going to get on with my job, which is to try and prepare my team to win football matches and whatever will be will be. I've just got to carry on with my business, show my personal pride and professionalism and make sure that those lads are prepared to win for the team and for the fans and for this great club."
12:00
