Follow all the action live as West Ham host Newcastle on the opening day of the Premier Leeague season.
Having only narrowly secured survival last season, David Moyes’ side enter the new campaign in a state of turbulence after the departure of Grady Diangana caused captain Mark Noble to criticise the club’s ownership.
Meanwhile, Newcastle’s hierarchy have responded well in the transfer market, despite the bitter disappointment over their failed takeover, with Callum Wilson, Ryan Fraser and Jeff Hendrick all joining the club. Follow all the action below:
90 mins: Game over. It’s not be overly exciting but it’s been effective from Steve Bruce’s men, especially his newcomers. Newcastle look like a steady, organised unit. West Ham have not been good. They’ve put very little pressure on the ball or Newcastle’s back line. It good be a long season for them.
Five added minutes to play.

West Ham 0 – 2 Newcastle – Hendrick
87 mins: GOAL! The debutants do it for Newcastle. Almiron makes this goal, with his pace and fresh legs. He picks up a pass from Carroll and bursts into the box before squaring the ball to Hendrick. Hendrick takes a touch, settles himself and punts it into the back of the net.

84 mins: Callum Wilson’s debut is over. Miguel Almiron comes on for the closing minutes of the game.

81 mins: Cresswell takes a corner for West Ham. Andy Carroll heads the ball out as far as Yarmolenko who shoots and wins another corner when his shot is deflected wide. The second attempt comes in from West Ham but this time Newcastle deal with it pretty well.

78 mins: It was Saint-Maximin’s last act as Joelinton comes on to replace him.

75 mins: Hendrick has been decent tonight. He plays a good ball over the top for Manquillo to run onto. Manquillo crosses the ball and Wilson almost reaches it for another tap in. Instead it bounces out to Saint-Maximin who lets fly and cracks the ball over the goal.

72 mins: Rice fires a cross into the box and Manquillo gets his head to the ball first and flicks it out to Bowen who loses possession. Isaac Hayden is down. He looks to have tweaked something.

69 mins: There’s a big appeal from West Ham for a handball in the Newcastle penalty area. Haller drills the ball at him and it does strike the arm of Hendrick but it’s by his side and he had no chance to avoid the ball. Manquillo picks up a yellow card for a sliding tackle on Bowen.

65 mins: Haller and Yarmolenko come on for West Ham. Noble and Fornals go off. West Ham need to get something out of this game.

60 mins: Wilson deserved that goal. He’s been searching for it all game and kept at it. He opens his account for Newcastle in proper poaching style.
I worry for West Ham now, that lead could be unassailable. David Moyes needs to make some changes.
