FULL-TIME West Ham 2-2 Crystal Palace

Boos ring round Upton Park, but they are not for the Hammers players. They are for referee Mark Clattenburg, whose decision to send off Cheikhou Kouyate changed this game.

West Ham looked reasonably comfortable, but conceded an equaliser shortly after Kouyate was sent off for fouling Dwight Gayle.

The point does not really help either side, with West Ham drifting further from a top-four finish, while Palace remain in relegation trouble.

West Ham 2-2 Crystal Palace

Four minutes of added time. Who is going to win this one?

West Ham 2-2 Crystal Palace

It is getting frantic at both ends. Both sides still pushing for three points. Great entertainment.

West Ham 2-2 Crystal Palace

They might only have 10 men, but West Ham are still creating chances. Substitute Enner Valencia's side-footed effort is deflected over the bar by Pape Souare for a corner, which the Hammers waste.

"West Ham panicked in defence. They didn't clear the ball and it ended up in the back of their net. But make no mistake, Mark Clattenburg's incorrect decision to send off Kouyate has changed the course of this game."

GOAL - West Ham 2-2 Crystal Palace

Dwight Gayle (Crystal Palace)

How big will that sending off prove to be in West Ham and Crystal Palace's seasons?

The Eagles are now level. Pape Souare's cross finds West Ham defender Angelo Ogbonna, who makes a complete mess of the clearance. The ball hits a team-mate and falls to Dwight Gayle.

The striker steers a finish past Adrian and we are all level at 2-2.

SUBSTITUTION

West Ham 2-1 Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace are not messing about. They know this is now a great chance to pick up some points against a side that will have to play for more than 20 minutes with only 10 men.

Alan Pardew opts to bring on striker Fraizer Campbell in place of midfielder Joe Ledley.

'It is a poor decision'

West Ham 2-1 Crystal Palace

Dion Dublin

Former Leicester and Aston Villa forward on Final Score

"I'm not sure that is a straight red card at all. It is a poor decision. If Kouyate had dived in with his studs showing that would have been a sending off, but he's got his leg bent and he's trying just to nick the ball."

RED CARD - Cheikhou Kouyate (West Ham)

West Ham 2-1 Crystal Palace

Not the best few minutes of Cheikhou Kouyate's career. He nearly gifted Crystal Palace a goal with a short backpass a few minutes ago and now he is trudging off the pitch.

He lunges at Dwight Gayle and catches the striker. Clumsy, but not dangerous.

But referee Mark Clattenburg does not hesitate and shows the midfielder a red card. It looks a booking, but a sending off seems very harsh.

What a chance!

West Ham 2-1 Crystal Palace

Off the line by Aaron Cresswell to deny Bakary Sako. Cheikhou Kouyate is a very lucky man. His backpass is too short and Adrian sprints off his line to partially clear the danger.

However, the ball falls to Sako who shoots at goal but his effort is blocked by an acrobatic Cresswell clearance.

Champions League dreaming

West Ham 2-1 Crystal Palace

West Ham have never played Champions League football. Well, not yet anyway.

Hammers fans will be hoping that Europe's elite will be heading to the Olympic Stadium next season.

If this score stays the same then it will certainly keep them in contention.

West Ham 2-1 Crystal Palace

For the fifth game in a row, West Ham look to the big man Andy Carroll. He comes on for Emmanuel Emenike.

Not a sight you want to see if you're a Palace defender.

GOOD SAVE!

West Ham 2-1 Crystal Palace

A chance for Manuel Lanzini to score his second goal of the game, but his low strike is held by Wayne Hennessey.

West Ham 2-1 Crystal Palace

This gives you an idea of Dimitri Payet's free-kick towards the end of the first half. That goal may well be earning the Hammers the win here. 

West Ham 2-1 Crystal Palace

Great defending from Angelo Ogbonna at the near post to deal with a Bakary Sako cross as Jason Puncheon waited to pounce.

This has been a good start to the half from Palace, and West Ham's defence are going to have to be on their game for their side to stay ahead.

West Ham 2-1 Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace's Yannick Bolasie tries a few fancy stepovers on the left-wing, then tries to sprint past Michail Antonio, then tries to barge him out of the way.

But nothing works as the ball dribbles out of play for a goal-kick. Good work from Antonio, who has impressed in an unfamiliar right-back role, both in defence and getting forward to help the attack as well.

So what do Crystal Palace have to do to get back into this game? Well, getting hold of the ball may be a good start.

These are the scores from the other Premier League games today. That Manchester City score at Bournemouth means West Ham will be staying out of the top four today.

But Norwich and Sunderland are both picking up points at the moment, to make Palace fans get a bit more nervous.

Goallllllllll

West Ham 2-1 Crystal Palace

Here's that Dimitri Payet free-kick in all its glory. Well, as much glory as you can get from a static graphic. Make sure you watch this on Match of the Day later. You don't want to miss this one.

By the way, that is Payet's 12th goal of the season.

He's also been directly involved in 23 goals in all competitions, 13 more than any other West Ham player.

HALF-TIME - West Ham 2-1 Crystal Palace

And that is the first half over. And what a good half of football that was.

Crystal Palace took a fortunate lead through Damien Delaney, who capitalised on an error from Hammers goalkeeper Adrian.

However, their lead only lasted three minutes before Manuel Lanzini drilled in an equaliser.

Jason Puncheon missed a glorious chance to put the visitors back in front, and that error proved costly as a wonderful free-kick from Dimitri Payet gave West Ham a half-time lead.

West Ham 2-1 Crystal Palace

Another chance for Diafra Sakho after Aaron Cresswell and Manuel Lanzini link-up well down the West Ham left flank. However, Safro does not hit the ball cleanly and it is blocked.

Shohidur Rahman: Free-kicks are almost becoming penalties for Payet. He's ridiculous.

'An unbelievable goal!'

West Ham 2-1 Crystal Palace

Garth Crooks

Former Spurs striker on Final Score

"You've got to see this! You've got to! His shot flew past Hennessey in the blink of an eye and into the back of a net through the space of a postage stamp. An unbelievable goal!"

GOAL - West Ham 2-1 Crystal Palace

Dimitri Payet (West Ham)

Wonderful, absolutely wonderful. Dimitri Payet had messed up his last free-kick, but he hits this one perfectly. He curls it from 20 yards high over the wall and the ball sweeps into the top corner. Magical.

Free-kick to West Ham 20 yards out, central.

CLOSE!

West Ham 1-1 Crystal Palace

Another great chance - this time for West Ham.

Eagles goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey is all over the place as he chases Dimitri Payet's corner and the ball finds its way to Diafra Sakho, five yards out. The big striker gets above his marker but can only nod wide with the goal gaping.

West Ham 1-1 Crystal Palace

Enjoyable game this one. This time the ball is in the Crystal Palace box, but the visitors scramble the ball away, following an overhead kick from one of their defenders to deny Michail Antonio and Emmanuel Emenike.

CLOSE!

West Ham 1-1 Crystal Palace

What a chance for Palace to retake the lead. Pape Souare swings in an excellent cross from deep and Jason Puncheon is clear of his marker, six yards out.

But Puncheon doesn't know whether to head it or volley it, and in the end does neither. The ball bounces up off his knee and over the bar. A waste.

YELLOW CARD

Mark Noble (West Ham) and Winston Reid

Wilfried Zaha storms forward at pace from the halfway line but his run is brought to a crushing halt by a sliding challenge from Mark Noble, which earns the Hammers captain a booking.

He claims he got the ball, referee Mark Clattenburg disagrees and Noble is the first man in the book.

Soon after, West Ham's Winston Reid is also shown yellow for a foul on Yannick Bolasie.

West Ham 1-1 Crystal Palace

A free-kick 22 yards out should be a chance for Dimitri Payet to get on the scoresheet. But he wastes it by ballooning it over the bar. But, considering the season he has had, he's allowed that one.

Wayne Hennessey is again called into action, this time having to deal with a powerful low strike from Dimitri Payet. But the Palace goalkeeper gratefully holds on to the ball.

West Ham 1-1 Crystal Palace

Another chance for the hosts. Aaron Cresswell's low cross finds its way to a sliding Diafra Sakho, whose low shot is comfortably saved by Wayne Hennessey.

This one is turning into a very good game.

GOAL - West Ham 1-1 Crystal Palace

Manuel Lanzini (West Ham)

Well, that lead didn't last long. The Eagles concede within three minutes of going ahead. Michail Antonio, playing as a right back, starts the move with a cross to the back post, which Diafra Sakho knocks down into the danger zone.

Palace defender Scott Dann sticks out a leg but can only divert the ball to Manuel Lanzini, who drills a low effort into the net.

'A fantastic goal from a centre-half'

West Ham 0-1 Crystal Palace

Garth Crooks

Former Spurs striker on Final Score

"The ball cleared the entire West Ham defence, and what is Delaney even doing there? I wouldn't expect to see him up there, and it's a fantastic goal from a centre-half. A really good finish."

GOAL - West Ham 0-1 Crystal Palace

Damien Delaney

So, so soft. A free-kick from Bakary Sako looks like it is harmlessly going to go out for a goal kick, but Adrian paws the ball back into play to Damien Delaney, who heads into an empty net from close range.
