West Ham United vs Crystal Palace LIVE: Premier League result, final score and reaction

West Ham scored early but were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

West Ham took the lead in the 13th minute when James Ward-Prowse played a pass out wide to Vladimir Coufal on the right who cut it back to Mohammed Kudus in the area and his first time shot found the bottom corner via a small deflection.

Palace’s equaliser came in the 53rd minute with West Ham looking to play it out from the back, but a stray pass from Konstantinos Mavropanos was picked up by Odsonne Edouard who raced into the box and fired his shot into the far corner.

The home side finished stronger and had chances late on to take all three points, but Palace held out for a well-earned draw.

The Hammers remained ninth in the standings, on 21 points, while Palace moved up to 12th on 16 points.

16:04

West Ham and Palace share the spoils as the game ends 1-1 at the London Stadium. The Hammers took the lead in the first half through Kudus after barely threatening Johnstone's goal. The Ghanaian international finished well into the bottom corner after some excellent work by Coufal. After the break, the Eagles asserted their dominance and came out the blocks fast, with Edouard equalising shortly after half-time after Mavropanos had gifted him the ball. Emerson and Bowen both had opportunities to put their side back in front in the second half, but it ended in a stalemate. Moyes' men have another London derby on Thursday as they travel to Ange Postecoglou's Tottenham. Hodgson's side will host struggling Bournemouth on Wednesday as the Eagles look to end their three-game winless run. That's all for today, goodbye!

15:53

Ward-Prowse whips a delivery towards the back post, but it evades everyone. Fornals gets on the end of it and feeds Paqueta who sends a cross into the box. Bowen gets his head to it just outside the six-yard box, but it's straight at Johnstone. He'll be disappointed not to have made things more difficult for the Palace goalkeeper there.

15:51

Olise dances past Fornals and plays a one-two with Riedewald inside the box. Olise then fires a ball low and hard into the danger zone, and it's deflected behind for a corner. It's whipped into the penalty area, but Soucek rises above the Palace attackers and heads away from danger.

The fourth official has indicated that there will be a minimum of six minutes of added time at the end of the game.

Moyes makes his first change late in the game, with Alvarez making way. Fornals is the player to come on in the final few minutes.

Palace make their second alteration of the game as they push for a winner, with Mateta coming on in attack in place of Edouard.

15:45

Mavropanos bursts forward from defence and finds Coufal, but his pass deflects goes out for a throw. He quickly launches it to Bowen who tussles with Guehi and goes to ground, and the West Ham players are appealing for a penalty. However, the referee sees nothing in it and waves play on.

15:43

Ward looks to find Olise in behind but West Ham are able to snuff out the danger comfortably, before Ward-Prowse attempts a similar pass that goes straight to Andersen. Both sides are lacking a bit of quality when they enter the opposition half at the moment.

West Ham now have a chance from a corner as Alvarez's cross is deflected behind. Ward-Prowse is standing over it and delivers towards the back post. Aguerd wins the header, but it drops to Olise who is able to clear. The ball eventually finds Kudus on the left who sends in a deep cross, and Mavropanos rises above his marker but his header drifts wide of the post.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

15:34

Both sides are yet to make a change with the game a stalemate at the moment. Hodgson will be happy with how his side have reacted in the second half, with Moyes likely to be disappointed with their lack of creativity. It wouldn't be a surprise to see some movement on the benches very soon.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

15:31

West Ham are dominating the possession in the second half and have had 65.3 per cent of the ball, but they are struggling to turn it into clear-cut chances. Palace are happy to sit in and try and hit the Hammers on the counter-attack.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

15:29

Coufal finds Kudus who gets to the byline and delivers towards the back post, but Ward-Prowse can't win the header. It eventually finds Soucek who is on the end of a rough challenge, but the referee waves play on. Palace now break as Olise looks to feed Edouard in the penalty area, but Aguerd is there to intercept.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

15:26

Coufal isn't happy as Mitchell appears to kick out off the ball. The referee didn't spot it and the game continued, but this could be checked by the VAR team. However, the referee signals that the game can continue. Mitchell might consider himself a little lucky there.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

15:23

What a chance! West Ham should be ahead. Soucek feeds Paqueta who shifts the ball onto his left foot and sends a dangerous cross into the box. Emerson arrives at the back post unmarked, but his volley flies over the bar from just a few yards out. He will be disappointed not to have hit the target from there.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

15:21

Kudus turns superbly leaving Mitchell behind, but his throughball can't find Bowen beyond the Palace defence. The Eagles then look to break away with Ayew, but Coufal brings him down. West Ham are looking frustrated after struggling to perform at the level they are capable of since the break.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

15:20

Palace have been the better side since the break and have limited West Ham to just one shot from Ward-Prowse's free-kick. The Eagles have drastically improved from a creativity perspective, managing two shots on target since the second half got under way, including Edouard's equaliser.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

15:17

Bowen feeds the ball out wide to Kudus who cuts inside onto his left foot and Ayew brings him down just outside of the penalty area. Ward-Prowse and Paqueta are standing over it and it's certainly in shooting range for West Ham. Ward-Prowse strikes it... but it's straight into the wall.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

15:13

Edouard and Olise link up well as the latter dances past the challenges of the West Ham defenders before closing in on the edge of the penalty area. He works the ball onto his right and looks to test Areola from range, but his shot lacked the power required and the goalkeeper is able to comfortably save.

15:11

Goal Odsonne Édouard

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

15:10

What a chance! Olise floated a free-kick towards the back post and Guehi broke beyond the West Ham defence, firing it back across goal. Edouard flings himself at it from a few yards out, but Ward-Prowse manages to head it over the bar. The Palace striker was inches away from powering it into the back of the net!

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

15:08

Emerson is down with an injury after Ward caught him. Palace take their time to stop play, but eventually Olise delays proceedings allowing the West Ham defender to get some treatment. The medical team are on the pitch and Cresswell has been sent to warm up. However, it looks like he will be able to continue for now.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

15:06

West Ham have the ball in the back of the net... but it's flagged for offside. Coufal takes a quick throw to Kudus who whips in a cross towards Soucek. The midfielder takes a swing at it but doesn't connect, and it flies into the back of the net. He didn't manage to touch it, but he was adjudged to have been interfering. It won't count.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

15:03

Ward-Prowse gets the second half under way for West Ham!

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

15:01

Hodgson's side are looking to find Olise at every opportunity, with the Palace attacker having more touches of the ball than any other player in the game. However, Olise lost possession 16 times in the opening 45 minutes, so there's no doubt the Eagles will need him to up his performance if they want to get back into it. West Ham have been resolute at the back, limiting Palace to just 0.23 expected goals (xG). The next goal could be huge in this one and it wouldn't be a surprise if Hodgson makes an alteration in attack early in the second half.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

14:57

West Ham go into the break with a 1-0 lead over Palace. It's been a game of limited opportunities for both sides, with the Hammers struggling to get into the opposition box. Moyes' men took the lead in the 13th minute after Coufal's perfectly-weighted cut back fell straight into the path of Kudus, who struck it first time into the bottom corner. Hodgson's side haven't had any clear-cut chances to level the scoring, but an Andersen free-kick was unfortunate to have not found the back of the net as it deflected behind for a corner. The Eagles are still in this game, but they will need more from their attacking players in the second half.

The fourth official has indicated that there will be a minimum of one minute of added time at the end of the first half.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

14:47

Palace have managed to touch the ball inside the West Ham box 13 times, but are yet to create an opportunity that has tested Areola in goal. The Eagles are doing well to contain the Hammers and are organised defensively, but they need more from their attacking options.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

14:45

Mavropanos' switch is cut out by Olise who feeds it to Edouard. The Palace forward finds Lerma in space inside the box and he attempts to take on Paqueta. The midfielder struggles to get it under control and eventually drags Paqueta to the ground, giving West Ham a free-kick.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

14:43

Soucek lays the ball into the path of Emerson who looks to take on Andersen, but the Palace defender is able to stick a foot in and poke it behind for a corner. Ward-Prowse to take. He whips it towards the back post and Richards wins the header which falls to Kudus, but his ambitous volley from the edge of the area is high and wide.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

14:39

Ward-Prowse goes into the book after tripping Hughes as Palace were looking to counter-attack.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

14:38

Ayew receives the ball on the left-hand side and cuts in towards the penalty area. Kudus attempts to win back possession, but trips the Palace forward and the Eagles have a free-kick. Andersen is standing over it and looks like he is eyeing up a shot. He strikes it... and it deflects off the wall and whistles past the post. So close!

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

14:36

Coufal finds Kudus on the right and he looks to spin away from Mitchell, but the Palace defender is all over him and the Hammers win a free-kick. Kudus has been the danger man for West Ham so far and the majority of their positive play is coming through him.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

14:33

Ayew looks to break away from Palace as he bursts through the middle of the pitch. Soucek runs across him and trips him inside the Eagles' half, and the referee awards a free-kick. The Palace players aren't happy as they were looking to start an attack before the Czech Republic international brought Ayew to ground.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

14:32

Alvarez looks to find Coufal who has made a run beyond the Palace defence, but Kudus tries to bring it under control and fails to do so and it goes out for a throw-in to the Eagles. The Hammers are still struggling to get into the opposition penalty area, but Moyes will be happy with their 1-0 lead so far.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

14:30

Coufal gives the ball away to Ayew who drives towards the West Ham penalty area. He has Edouard through the middle and Olise to his right. He opts to try and test Areola from range, but he gets it all wrong and it flies behind for a goal-kick.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

14:27

Emerson drives through the middle of the pitch, weaving between challenges as he edges towards the box. Richards makes a tackle, forcing the West Ham defender to the ground, but he just about wins the ball and the referee waves play on. The supporters aren't happy, but it was a superb tackle from the Palace midfielder.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

14:25

It's a chance for the Hammers as Aguerd finds Bowen with a superb throughball beyond the Palace defence. The England international closes in on the goalkeeper and looks to lift it over Johnstone, but he can't get enough height on his shot and the Palace keeper is able to collect.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

14:23

West Ham are in the lead despite having just one touch inside the opposition box since the game got under way. That's all Kudus needed to fire his side in front. Palace have made more opportunities, managing three off-target shots, but are yet to test Areola between the sticks.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

14:21

Guehi switches play and finds Olise on the right-hand side who delivers towards the back post. Mitchell finds Ayew in the box with a first-time pass and the Palace forward plays a one-two with Hughes, but Alvarez dives in to block his shot and West Ham are able to clear the danger.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

14:18

Palace have an opportunity to fill the box as they quickly push for the equaliser. Olise whips it towards the back post from the left-hand side, but Edouard can't quite get there as he strectches for it near the byline, and it goes behind for a goal-kick. Hodgson will need a quick reaction from his team.

Palace win a free-kick deep inside the Palace half as Ward-Prowse is adjudged to have handled the ball. Olise is the player to take and he whips it towards the back post. Andersen wins the knock down, heading it straight to Edouard who volleys, but it flies past the post. It was a difficult chance for the striker who just couldn't guide it towards the goal.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

14:10

The Hammers are having a spell of possession now but are struggling to find space between the lines to break Palace down. Hodgson's side are looking compact in the middle of the pitch and making things difficult for Moyes' men.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

14:07

Olise wins a foul as Paqueta trips him inside the West Ham half. Palace fill the box with Olise standing over the free-kick. He delivers towards the back post and it eventually falls to Ward on the edge of the area who strikes it, but the Hammers are able to block the shot and clear.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

14:05

Olise gets the better of Paqueta on the right-hand side and drives towards the byline. The Palace winger sends a cross into the box, but Areola is able to come out and collect and West Ham regain possession. The Eagles have enjoyed more of the ball in the opening few minutes of the game.

Meanwhile, Hodgson has made three alterations from Palace’s defeat away to Luton. Eberechi Eze, Cheick Doucoure, and Jeffrey Schlupp are all unavailable. Hughes and Richards come into the midfield for the Eagles, while Ayew is also in the starting XI further up the pitch.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

13:53

Moyes has made two changes from the side who beat Burnley last time out in the Premier League. In defence, Kurt Zouma misses out and hasn’t made the squad. Mavropanos comes into the starting XI to make just his second Premier League start. There’s also a change in attack as Bowen returns from injury to lead the line, with Ings dropping to the bench.

Palace will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing defeat away to Luton Town last week, giving the Hatters their first home victory of the Premier League season. Roy Hodgson’s side could be relying on the creativity of Michael Olise, who has been involved in seven goals in his last 10 fixtures in the competition (1 goal, 6 assists). The Eagles have found things difficult in their last 16 London derby matches (D5 L9), winning just twice, but both of those victories came against West Ham. A win today could see them climb above Chelsea in 11th place.

West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

13:41

The Hammers are looking to continue their impressive run of form which has seen them win four games on the bounce in all competitions. David Moyes’ side have come out victorious in their last two in the Premier League, which is more than they’d won in their previous seven (W1 D1 L5). West Ham didn’t have a lot of success against Palace last season, losing in both fixtures in the Premier League. A victory could see the Hammers climb into eighth place in the table ahead of Brighton if results go their way.
