  • West Ham 0 Crystal Palace 1. All over and the visitors take the spoils. Five wins in a row for the Eagles, three defeats on the spin for the Hammers.

  • Carroll tripped from behind by Digkacoi. Last chance for the Hammers. Free-kick 30 yards out, just right of centre. Carroll wants to hit it, but Noble crosses. Poor choice.

  • Murray booked for kicking the ball away and preventing Adrian from taking a quick free-kick. Hammers keeper then pushed back to take from the right place. Seconds tick away.

  • Palace sitting on the edge of their own box now. West Ham lumping high balls forward, but getting nothing on them. Another wayward pass then slips out of play. Hosts doing themselves few favours.

  • Standing ovation for Bolasie as he trudges off to be replaced by Parr. Pulis looking to run down the clock.

  • Carroll and Diame go down in the box, Palace slice up into the air. Desperate defending from the visitors. Joe Cole sends over another cross. Easily dealt with.

  • Four minutes of stoppage-time to be played.

  • Free-kick to Palace wide on their left. Delaney looks to switch play to the right. Diame gathers for West Ham. He clips into Carlton Cole on the penalty spot, but he has his back to goal and is surrounded by defenders.

  • Terrible from Reid. With West Ham forcing Palace back, he somehow manages to play a square pass intended for McCartney in space on the right out of play. Groans around Upton Park.

  • Nice reception from the home support for Gabbidon - good to see. Can he help to keep the hosts frustrated? Diame is driving forward. He cuts onto his right, but sees a dipping cross hacked clear.

  • Pulis making changes at the back. Former West Ham defender Gabbison sent on in place of Puncheon. Palace shutting up shop.

  • Jedinak dips a pass over the top of Tomkins for Murray to chase. Great forward play as, with no support, the Palace striker wins a corner. Bolasie's delivery is flapped away by Adrian.

  • Joe Cole goes as close as West Ham have come to finding a breakthrough. He finds a pocket of space 30 yards out, drifts forward and sends a low drive skidding inches past the post. Nocerino then brought on in place of Nolan.

  • Noble clips the free-kick onto the head of Carroll. He nods across the face of goal, where Tomkins is waiting 12 yards out. He takes his eye off the ball and sees it slip past him before he can get a shot away.

  • Puncheon unable to trick his way past Tomkins on the edge of the box. West Ham can spring out, that is until Jedinak sends Diame tumbling to the turf.

  • Jerome has worked hard this afternoon and is offered a breather as he makes way for Murray. Palace striker coming on to make his 100th appearance for the club. Puncheon's corner comes to nothing.

  • McCartney has played countless cross-field passes looking for the head of Carroll but is yet to get one right. He is now defending again as Bolasie darts into the box and forces a corner.

  • Palace playing some neat football now, but squander possession inside their own half. West Ham can't get anything going as the Eagles press the ball quickly.

  • Speroni takes his time after collecting a loose ball. Palace have one eye on the clock now. They are edging ever closer to a fifth successive Premier League win - some achievement.

  • Puncheon nutmegs Tomkins, but the West Ham man can win the ball back and find Cole. Solid again from Ward as he slides in to prevent a corner and clear his lines. West Ham make their second change as Downing makes way for Joe Cole.
