  • That's all from this live commentary on the opening day of the season. Report and reaction to follow.

  • Full-time: West Ham 0 Tottenham 1 (Dier 90+3). A day Eric Dier will never forget. His late goal has given Spurs an opening victory at Upton Park, after Kyle Naughton and James Collins were shown red cards and Mark Noble missed a penalty.

  • Dier is onside as he rushes through the defence onto Harry Kane's through ball and takes a good touch with his right foot to get round Adrian before sliding the shot home. What a debut for the youngster! 0-1.

  • GOAL! West Ham 0 Tottenham 1 (Dier 90+3)

  • Four additional minutes to be played.

  • Adrian is called upon, diving to his left to keep out Bentaleb's swerving effort from 25 yards out.

  • What a fine save from Lloris! Nolan cleverly plays in Downing but the Spurs goalkeeper is out sharply and manages to get enough on the ball to prevent the goal, with Kaboul tidying up.

  • Demel's pull-back nutmegs Bentaleb but referee Chris Foy gets in the way.

  • West Ham fans already warming to Valencia as he forces a corner.

  • Final change for Spurs - Kane ON, Adebayor OFF.

  • Good skill from Holtby to get the ball through to Adebayor, but the striker then handballs in the area and the chance is gone.

  • Downing tries an acrobatic effort from the edge of the box after the corner came out to him, but his shot goes over the bar.

  • Final switch for the hosts - Valencia ON, Cole OFF.

  • Dier heads a cross behind for a West Ham corner.

  • Enner Valencia is going to be West Ham's third and final change.

  • Sub Diame drags a shot wide as West Ham go in search of a late goal.

  • Noble bursts from midfield into the right side of the penalty area and gets a shot away, although Lloris is equal to it.

  • Adrian has to tip Townsend's powerfully struck effort over the bar. Then from the corner, the Spurs winger's shot from the edge of the box takes a deflection and goes out for another set-piece. This time, the Hammers are able to clear.

  • Second change for West Ham - Diame ON, Vaz Te OFF.

  • Adrian claims the ball ahead of Adebayor after the right-wing cross came in from Townsend. The West Ham keeper isn't happy as he feels Adebayor's challenge was too strong.
