WEST HAM 2-1 WEST BROM
It's all over at the London Stadium and Andy Carroll's brace - his first goals since April 1 - clinch a priceless victory for West Ham. James McClean's deflected strike put West Brom in control against the below-par Hammers in the first half but Carroll's second-half double transformed the Hammers fortunes.
GOAL! WEST HAM 2-1 WEST BROM (Carroll, 90+4)
Incredible, absolutely incredible. Andy Carroll snatches victory right at the death for West Ham! Arnautovic breaks down the left, drills a low cross across the area which misses Hernandez, but Carroll is on hand to apply the finish touch from a narrow angle!
WEST HAM 1-1 WEST BROM
90+1: There will be FOUR minutes of added time at the London Stadium.
90: CHANCE! McClean's cross strikes Rondon and falls for Burke, who takes a touch before firing over from from six yards. Huge chance for the Baggies to snatch it.
88: CLOSE! Hernandez scoops the ball out to Arnautovic whose deflected shot drifts behind for a corner, but nothing comes from the resulting set piece.
86: Arnautovic knocks the ball around Dawson and tries to beat him for pace, but the Baggies full-back cynically blocks his path.
83: SUB! Third and final change for West Brom as Barry comes on for Yacob.
83: CLOSE! Dawson is played into space down the right. Arnautovic tracks the run but nearly turns the ball into his own net as his block forces Adrian to tip the ball over from under his bar.
82: Yet again, delivery from set pieces let the Hammers down as Foster gathers with ease.
81: Arnautovic and Rice combine down the left before a cross drifts out to Zabaleta on the right. The Hammers defender then shows great strength to out-muscle McClean to win a corner.
78: CHANCE! Robson-Kanu turns beautifully on receiving Burke's pass - reminiscent of his goal against Belgium at Euro 2016 - but he gets his wires crossed with McClean, allowing West Ham to clear.
76: SUB! Third and final change for West Ham and it's an enforced one as Rice replaces the injured Cresswell.
74: CHANCE! Rondon releases Burke in behind Ogbonna but Hammers defender recovers to deny the Baggies substitute from making an immediate impact.
74: YELLOW! Hernandez is straight into the mix as his touch and quick turn lures a foul from Yacob, who picks up West Brom's first booking.
73: SUB! Second change for West Ham as Masuaku makes way for Hernandez.
72: Carroll is really having an influence now as he cushion a ball into the path of Arnautovic, only for Evans to intercept in the nick of time for the Baggies.
71: SUB! Second change for West Brom as Burke replaces Rodriguez.
69: Ogbonna reacts angrily after giving away a free-kick in midfield but great captaincy from Noble ensures he only receives a telling off, rather than a card.
68: CHANCE! Lanzini threads Arnautovic through on goal but Foster is off his line in a flash to smother the Austrian's effort. Yet another fantastic stop from the Baggies 'keeper.
66: Unsavoury scenes as Livermore leaves the field, with the Baggies midfielder involved in a heated exchange with some West Ham supporters. Security and a member of the West Brom backroom staff act as mediators as Livermore is ushered down the tunnel.
West Ham are 2/1 to complete the comeback here with the draw odds-on and West Brom out to 5/1. It's 9/2 that Zabaleta is carded and 40/1 that Lanzini scores a free-kick.

65: SUB! First change for West Brom as Robson-Kanu replaces Livermore.
61: YELLOW! Carroll is booked for leaving a bit on Krychowiak, after his challenge on Arnautovic in the area went unpunished.
GOAL! WEST HAM 1-1 WEST BROM (Carroll, 59)
BANG! The longest goal drought of Andy Carroll's career comes to an emphatic end as Cresswell's whipped cross from the left is clinically converted by the Hammers striker. He's too strong for Evans and Gibbs as he rises high to head his first goal of the season and his first goal since April 1. Game on!
WEST HAM 0-1 WEST BROM
58: Poor delivery from set pieces appears contagious as West Ham's forst corner of the game doesn't leave the ground.
57: Rodriguez's delivery is nothing short of awful as the Hammers clear at the first man before Masuaku leads a counter all the way to the West Brom area, where a fine block from Dawson turns the ball behind for a corner.
56: Rondon and Livermore exchange passe int he final third where Masuaku's impatience gets the better of him and he brings the England international down to give away a cheap free-kick.
55: Kouyate's heavy touch hands possession back to West Brom and, with Adrian off his line, Rondon shoot for goal from deep inside his own half, but the audacious effort falls well short of the goal.
53: Arnautovic whips another fine ball into the area from the right flank which Yacob heads clear before Carroll is penalised for a foul while trying to gather the rebound.
51: West Brom are in real danger of undoing all of their hard work here. Alan Pardew is barking out orders from his technical area, urging his men to move up the field and close down Noble, who is already dictating things in the middle of the park.
48: Noble's angled ball up field has Rodriguez in a panic as he heads the ball out for a throw before it reaches Masuaku, but West Ham are unable to make anything come from the field position.
46: CHANCE! So nearly the perfect start for West Ham as Arnautovic's whipped cross falls for Carroll 12 yards from goal, but he steers the difficult chance over.
KICK-OFF! West Brom get the second half underway!
SUB! Half-time change for West Ham as Mark Noble replaces Pedro Obiang, the Baggies remain unchanged.
West Ham are out to 11/2 to beat West Brom, who are now odds-on having taken the lead through McClean. West Ham to win 2-1 has been enhanced to 10/1 by Sky Bet, who make Carroll 8/1 to score a header and Arnautovic 33/1 to bag a brace.
The half-time whistle is greeted by jeers at the London Stadium as West Ham reach the midway point of this crucial bottom-of-the-table clash a goal down. James McClean's deflected effort - his first in 16 months - has the Baggies ahead at the interval and, in the grand scheme of things, they deserve it. A big 45 minutes lies ahead for both clubs - can the Hammers turn this disjointed performance around or will West Brom end their 19-game winless run?
45+1: There will be TWO minutes of added time at the London Stadium.
45: OFF THE LINE! McClean's free-kick causes chaos in the West Ham area. It bounces around, strikes Dawson - who appears to be offside - before falling for Evans whose toe-poke is stopped on the line by Adrian.
44: YELLOW! Rondon releases Rodriguez down the left where he is sent tumbling by Masuaku, who is booked for the challenge.
43: SAVE! Carroll knocks Lanzini's long ball into the path of Kouyate in the six-yard box but Foster bravely flies off his line to prevent the Hammers midfielder from poking home.
41: HALF-CHANCE! Gibbs drives away from three West Ham players down the left before knocking the ball back to McClean. His cross is cleared as far as Yacob on the edge of the area, but his wild effort flies over the bar.
39: CHANCE! Better from West Ham! Lanzini plucks a long ball down in the West Brom area, shifts around two defenders before driving a low effort on goal, but Foster gets down low to his left to make a fine save.
38: CLOSE! Rodriguez whips a corner into the West Ham area which Hegazi comes within inches of turning towards goal. He misses the ball and it flashes behind before Evans can reach it.
37: The Baggies remain on the front foot as McClean drives forward again and wins a second corner on the spin.
34: West Brom have their tails up here as they win the first corner of the game, but West Ham are able to avoid further damage as Carroll clears.

A dubious penalty against Arsenal and now huge deflection against West Ham, it appears West Brom's fortunes are improving!
GOAL! WEST HAM 0-1 WEST BROM (McClean, 30)
West Brom make the breakthrough at the London Stadium! James McClean drives towards the area, leaving Reid on the ground before unleashing a shot which takes a huge deflection off Pedro Obiang before looping into the back of the net. A stroke of luck for the Baggies but a crucial goal nonetheless.
WEST HAM 0-0 WEST BROM
29: McClean gets away from Zabaleta and tries to pick out Rondon at the back post, but there's just too much on the cross as it drifts behind for a goal kick.
