- End of 2nd Half
And that's full-time!
A huge, huge, last-gasp win for West Ham, who get three thoroughly unexpected points and move up to 16th. Are Chelsea's top-four hopes under threat from in-form Wolves and Manchester United?
West Ham's game management since going up has been excellent. They've taken their time in the Chelsea half and haven't let the visitors counter.
- GoalAndriy YarmolenkoWest Ham United
West Ham lead!! Antonio is at the heart of it. The Hammers break at pace and Antonio finds the completely unmarked Yarmolenko on the far side. He cuts inside and drives home with his left foot, leaving Rudiger in a heap in the process. What a huge goal that could be.
Edging towards stoppage time. Can either side conjure up a winner?
Chelsea are camped outside the West Ham box and probing. A point hardly gets the hosts out of trouble but it would provide a boost with more tests of their steel ahead...
Brilliant keeping from Kepa!
West Ham venture forward for the first time in a while, with Wilshere feeding Antonio, who goes one on one with Kepa. The Spanish keeper gets down well to stop the attacker's prodded effort. Brave, and quick off his line.
- OffJarrod BowenWest Ham United
- OnAndriy YarmolenkoWest Ham United
Yarmolenko comes on for Bowen, who has two assists to his name. A good performance from the January signing.
Pulisic has had a fantastic game but it would take something for a scissor kick from 10 yards outside the box to go in. It goes well wide..
The question is, will West Ham rue sitting back after going ahead? They started the second half in fine form and have looked capable of getting in behind the Chelsea defence all game long but looked to hold what they had as soon as they went ahead.
Willian again! He's quite a distance from goal but the Brazilian steps up and gets his side level, his free kick clipping the post and going in. There are question marks over Fabianski's positioning there...
- Yellow cardDeclan RiceWest Ham United
Free kick to Chelsea in a dangerous area after Rice takes out Pulisic, who is dribbling brilliantly and has probably been his side's biggest threat. A yellow card for the West Ham stand-in skipper, and rightly so.
Time for a drink!
- OffManuel LanziniWest Ham United
- OnJack WilshereWest Ham United
Jack Wilshere is on for West Ham - can he help West Ham keep possession?
Giroud meets a Mason Mount free kick at the near post but mistimes his header and it falls safely into the hands of Fabianski, his former Arsenal team-mate. Better from Chelsea.
West Ham *just* about survive. First Giroud leaps but narrowly misses Pulisic's ball before the American heads it back across the face of goal with Fabianski out of position but West Ham scramble it clear...
- OffTammy AbrahamChelsea
- OnOlivier GiroudChelsea
And Frank Lampard is shuffling his pack, with Loftus-Cheek and Giroud replacing Barkley and Abraham. Can the subs herald a turnaround?
Fornals lets out a yelp of pain as Kante takes him out to stop a counter attack. He's perhaps lucky to avoid a yellow card..
So, after a sleepy start to the second half, how will Chelsea respond? West Ham have defended pretty stoutly and will be tough to break down.
- GoalMichail AntonioWest Ham United
Antonio is livid for a split second, appealing for a penalty after a Rudiger challenge, but he's soon back on his feet and celebrating as he meets Bowen's ball across the face of goal to put his side ahead. This could be huge!
Chelsea make their first foray into West Ham turf of the half, with Willian's deflected cross narrowly evading Abraham before Soucek makes a good tackle on Pulisic.
- 2nd Half
And we're back! West Ham get the game back under way and immediately go on the offensive, with Antonio winning a throw in deep into Chelsea territory.
And that's half-time!
It's certainly been an eventful one, towards the end at least, as West Ham think they take the lead through a Soucek goal, only to have it chalked off by VAR after an age, going 1-0 down from a Willian penalty before equalising, fittingly, through a Soucek header from a corner. Plenty to mull over ahead of the second period.
- GoalTomáš SoucekWest Ham United
Would you believe it?! West Ham are level! Bowen with another corner on the same wing as the disallowed goal, picks out Soucek (again!) at the back stick and he heads it into the far corner. There's no VAR check this time...
After a drinks break, a lengthy VAR referral and a knock to Bowen, we're somehow only looking at three minutes of injury time in this first half.
- Goal by penaltyWillianChelsea
Willian sends Fabianski the wrong way and Chelsea are a goal to the good. West Ham will be cursing their luck.
PENALTY TO CHELSEA!
Pulisic knocks it past Diop, who sticks out a leg and brings down the American. What a strange few minutes for West Ham United...
Just three minutes it took to make that decision and David Moyes is absolutely furious on the touch line. It was a right, royal scramble in the box and Antonio's head and shoulders were lying in an offside position but Soucek didn't appear to kick the ball against him.
West Ham think they have the lead! Bowen himself whips in the corner. Kovacic inadvertently flicks it on and it falls to Soucek, who scrambles it in... Pending a VAR check...
Antonio was lying prone on the floor after trying an overhead kick and his head was offside. Soucek kicked his team-mate, but didn't kick the ball against him. As for interfering, he was hardly in Kepa's line of vision...
It's fair to say West Ham are taking the cautious approach. They make a rare foray forward but only three men get on the attack. A nasty challenge from Alonso on Bowen brings a free kick, from which West Ham win a corner...
As we approach the half-hour mark, we've settled into something of a rhythm. Chelsea are marginally better and dominating possession but are yet to carve out a truly great opening. Both sides could well be a goal up, though, with Antonio screwing his shot wide and Pulisic sending his just the wrong side of the post after the move of the match so far.
And that''s time for a drink!
Chelsea's best move of the night as Azpilicueta collects it on the right and passes it towards Abraham, who wisely leaves it for Pulisic, who is tearing in from the left. The American lets fly and Fabianski is rooted to the spot but it goes just wide of the post.
Barkley has a dig from distance which Fabianski is more than equal to.
It looks as though Antonio is the hosts' main outlet. He's locked in a foot race with Christensen and goes down but there's nothing forthcoming from the referee.
Alonso is finding space time and time again on the Chelsea left. This time, he puts in a decent ball but Abraham can't make clean contact with it. It breaks to Willian on the right-hand side of the box but his attempt to deliver it leaves a lot to be desired and West Ham hack it clear.
West Ham could well be a goal up here. Rice wins it back high up the pitch and the ball is worked to Antonio, who bears down on goal but drags it well wide. He should have scored!
West Ham get forward in numbers for the first time. Soucek flicks on a long throw and there's a bit of a scramble in the Chelsea box until the whistle goes - it seems like Bowen was offside.
Willian cuts in from the left, works himself into a bit of space and lets fly but Fabianski gets down well and, crucially, holds onto it, with Abraham lurking with intent.
West Ham are pretty happy to sit back at the moment and look to get the ball forward early. But it seems like only a matter of time until Chelsea pick the lock. Pulisic nutmegs Fredericks but the defender gets back and wins it back.
Chelsea get an early corner and look for Azpilicueta at the near post. He misses his header and West Ham clear it to Alonso, who draws the first save of the night from Fabianski. It's a routine one and a keeper of the Pole's calibre was never going to make a mistake there.
The opening few minutes have been slightly frenetic but Chelsea are starting to settle into a decent spell of possession.
- 1st Half
And we're off! Chelsea get the game started after taking the customary knee.
So we're just five minutes away from kick-off! How will this one go? Stay here to find out...
West Ham (W4-D3-L8) can equal the club Premier League record for most home defeats in a single campaign: nine in 2006/07, 2010/11 and 2013/14 (all at Upton Park).
West Ham (W4-D3-L8) can equal the club Premier League record for most home defeats in a single campaign: nine in 2006/07, 2010/11 and 2013/14 (all at Upton Park)
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard lost only three of his 22 Premier League appearances as a player against teams managed by David Moyes (Everton, Manchester United). All three defeats were at Goodison Park.
In the reverse Premier League fixture this season, Manuel Pellegrini's Hammers defeated Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge on 30 November through a goal by Aaron Cresswell. David Moyes is the man in charge of West Ham now...
Chelsea, meanwhile, have been in excellent form. After squeezing past Aston Villa, they recorded a fine win over Manchester City before a victory over Leicester at the weekend earned them an FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United. They'll be confident of inflicting more misery on their London rivals.
Life after lockdown hasn't been kind to West Ham - they've lost both of their games so far and are yet to find the target in the post-Covid-19 era.
So, we have a London derby here played under surreal conditions with implications at both ends of the table. For Chelsea, they are closing in on a Champions League spot, while West Ham have suffered an ignominious season and are in serious danger of relegation to the Championship once more...
