    The flag goes up though against Andy Carroll - it looked like a foul.

    Seconds left.

    This is it.

    Free kick fro West Ham.

    50 yards from goal.



    West Ham 2-3 Newcastle

    There are four minutes of stoppage time.

    Benitez opts to waste a bit of it by bringing on Jacob Murphy to replace Christian Atsu.

    West Ham 2-3 Newcastle

    Three mins plus added time.

    West Ham haven't got long.

    Is it 'launch into mixer' time?

  7. Post update

    West Ham 2-3 Newcastle

    Newcastle just about clear.

    By the way they've brought on Chancel Mbemba to replace Henri Saivet.

    They need to bolster that backline with five minutes remaining.

  8. Post update

    West Ham 2-3 Newcastle

    West Ham have a free-kick on the left near the area.

    Andy Carroll looks hungry - he's slavering, perhaps.

  9. Post update

    West Ham 2-3 Newcastle

    There are 12 minutes remaining. The Hammers are applying a huge amount of pressure.

    Pedro Obiang smacks one from 20 yards which sails over.

    Javier Hernandez comes on for goalscorer (and pen misser) Andre Ayew.

    Do not leave this screen.

    Stuart Pearce and David Moyes

    West Ham 2-3 Newcastle

    Newcastle's Ayoze Perez comes on for Dwight Gayle.

    Good shift by Gayle.

    Missed from four yards though.

  11. Post update

    West Ham 2-3 Newcastle

    Former Mag Andy Carroll has made a huge difference since coming on.

    He's held up the ball brilliantly, as expected, and just seconds ago appealed for a penalty in the area although Lee Mason judged him to be the aggressor in that situation.

  12. GOAL - West Ham 2-3 Newcastle

    Andre Ayew

    Like I said.

    A corner from the left is flung into the area and finds the head of Andy Carroll, whose effort is blocked by Rob Elliot at the near post.

    However, the ball lands at the feet of Andre Ayew, who lashes in from four yards.

    Five goals so far!

    Merry Christmas!

    Andre Ayew
  13. Hope

    West Ham 1-3 Newcastle

    How do you all feel?

    If there is some solace Hammers fans, it's that against Newcastle you always have more than a chance.

  14. GOAL - West Ham 1-3 Newcastle

    Christian Atsu


    The festive period!!

    West Ham's Pablo Zabaleta and Pedro Obiang accidentally clash in midfield and the ball runs loose.

    Christian Atsu picks up, trots forward and plays a pass to Joselu on the left. The Spaniard returns the ball to Atsu who fires in at the near post.

    What a turnaround for the Magpies!

    Christian Atsu
  15. Post update

    West Ham 1-2 Newcastle

    Entertaining eh?

    What a wasted chance for West Ham.

    Will Newcastle record their first win since the Mesozoic era?

    Stay tuned.

    Andy Carroll is on for the Hammers.


    West Ham 1-2 Newcastle

    Andre Ayew steps up to take it but his effort is well read by Rob Elliot, who dives to his left to push the low shot away.

    Newcastle survive, but was it a pen in the first place?

    Andre Ayew and Rob Elliot

    West Ham 1-2 Newcastle

    Michail Antonio is brought down just inside the area (or was it inside?) by a combination of Ciaran Clark and DeAndre Yedlin.

    After some deliberation ref Lee Mason says it's a pen.

  18. GOAL - West Ham 1-2 Newcastle

    Mo Diame

    Nothing came from the corner.

    But something came from the second phase.

    Ciaran Clark dinks the ball wide to Christian Atsu on the left.

    The Ghana midfielder drifts inside into the area and delivers a pinpoint ball for Mo Diame to fire in high past Adrian.

    Mohammed Diame
