That's all for now though, goodbye!
The result means that Brentford leapfrog West Ham to climb into seventh place. The hosts, meanwhile, fall to ninth.
Wissa wins it for Brentford with the last kick of the game. The visitors made a fast start: after Mbeumo wasted two clear chances, he made no mistake with his third opportunity as he tapped in following Fabianski's save from Canos. West Ham looked completely out of sorts in the first half, but reorganised over half time and came out transformed. They threw everything at the visitors and finally equalised when Bowen thumped in following a wayward header from Soucek. From there it looked like there be only one winner, but Brentford weren't finished. As the game ticked into the 94th minute, Fabianski pushed Jansson's header away, but it fell to Wissa who slammed it into the net to give Brentford a precious three points! 
90' + 5' FULL TIME: West Ham 1-2 Brentford 
Y. Wissa
90' + 4' GOALLLL! WISSA WINS IT FOR BRENTFORD! 2-1! Jensen curls in a dangerous delivery and Jansson rises highest to power a header at goal. Fabianski pushes it out, but it falls to Wissa who smashes a volley from eight yards through a crowd of bodies and into the back of the net! 
D. Rice
Yellow Card
90' + 2' Rice is shown a yellow card after a cynical challenge to stop Wissa breaking away.
90' Three minutes of stoppage time are added on as West Ham continue to hunt for a winner.  
88' Zanka's long throw is headed out the box by Zouma. Brentford are taking their time with every set-piece now.
87' CLOSE! Rice curls in an inviting cross towards two unmarked attackers at the far post! However, with plenty of the goal to aim at, neither Antonio nor Soucek can make contact with it.
M. Jørgensen
Yellow Card
85' Zanka gets a yellow card after numerous fouls. The final straw was a trip on Antonio near the byline.
Sergi Canós
Yellow Card
84' Canos is shown a yellow card for a foul on Cresswell near the touchline. 
84' Well, West Ham have thrown everything at Brentford in this half and it's finally paid off! Will the visitors have anything left to give in attack, or will it be a case of clinging onto a point now?
Y. Wissa
B. Mbeumo
82' The second change sees Mbeumo come off for Wissa.
M. Bidstrup
F. Onyeka
81' Brentford respond with two changes: the first sees Onyeka make way for Bidstrup in midfield.
T. Souček
80' Soucek didn't know much about that header as it flicked away from goal, but it fell perfectly for Bowen who slammed it in brilliantly.
J. Bowen
80' BOWEN EQUALISES! 1-1!  West Ham finally draw level. Cresswell's corner ricochets backwards off Soucek, but it falls kindly for Bowen who rifles a vicious half-volley in at the near post from 12 yards!   
77' Mbeumo searches for Toney at the back with a neat cross, but Zouma rises to clear. 
75' After piling the pressure on Brentford at the start of the half, West Ham have lost a little bit of momentum. It looks as though they're readying themselves for a final push in the final 10 minutes. 
73' Brentford are starting to attack a little bit finally. This time Toney slips Jensen in behind and the midfielder's strike from a tight angle deflects behind for a corner. Fabianski sails out to claim the resulting delivery though.  
72' Toney almost gets in behind on the break, but Fabianski anticipates the danger and rushes out to clear. 
71' Cresswell floats in the set-piece, but Toney clears at the back post. 
C. Nørgaard
Yellow Card
69' Norgaard cynically pulls Benrahma back and is shown a yellow card. 
69' West Ham have transformed themselves in the second half. After being outplayed in the first 45, they're now throwing everything at Brentford. They've produced seven shots from inside the box in the second period compared to Brentford's zero. 
67' Brentford finally enjoy a little possession inside the West Ham half as they look to relieve the pressure. 
65' The Brentford defence continue to cling onto their clean sheet as two more shots are blocked on the edge of the box.
64' CHANCE! Antonio shrugs off Jansson and drives towards the byline. The striker picks out Fornals with a low cross but his close-range strike is blocked by Henry before Raya charges down Coufal's half-volley.
63' West Ham are piling on the pressure and it feels like it's just a matter of time before an equaliser. 
62' HUGE CHANCE! Coufal robs Pinnock inside the area, before curling in a precise cross towards Bowen inside the six-yard box! However, Bowen fails to make the right connection on his header and it flies wide of the far post.
60' West Ham have completely controlled the second half, as Brentford have dropped considerably deeper compared to the first 45.
59' Pinnock stabs Benrahma's 20-yard effort to safety.
58' Chance! Benrahma slips Bowen through on goal at an angle. Raya rushes out though and closes down the angle, before blocking Bowen's dinked effort behind! The resulting corner is headed over by Soucek. 
56' More West Ham pressure. Henry desperately clears Antonio's cross at the back post and it falls to Coufal who volleys over from 20 yards. 
54' Coufal turns behind Henry's cross and Brentford win a corner. Canos' delivery drifts too far though and Jansson heads it feebly up in the air and into the arms of Fabianski.
52' Cresswell's corner goes out of play before curling back into the box, and the referee halts play to give a goal kick. 
51' SAVE! Zanka clumsily knocks Antonio over 25 yards from goal, presenting West Ham with a promising free-kick. Benrahma steps up and whips a brilliant effort over the wall, but it's met by an even better save! Raya acrobatically tips it over the bar.
49' West Ham forward Michail Antonio has been involved in more goals than any other player in the Premier League so far this season (8), scoring five and assisting three goals in his five appearances so far. How the hosts could do with him adding to this record in the second half.   
47' Fornals immediately drives dangerously towards the edge of the box, but Pinnock gets across to snatch possession back.
46' Brentford get the second half underway.
Brentford managed to limit Antonio in that first half, but if the striker can affect the game more in the second period you'd think West Ham would find an equaliser.  
Brentford take a deserved lead into the break. The visitors made a fast start: Mbeumo missed two clear chances while Toney forced Fabianski into an excellent save. West Ham couldn't get to grips with Brentford's intensity and they were eventually punished when Mbeumo tapped in after Fabianski pushed away Canos' drive. West Ham finally settled into the game after that and had two chances to equalise that both fell to a wasteful Benrahma. Nevertheless, Brentford hold a deserved 1-0 advantage at half time.  
45' + 5' HALF TIME: West Ham 0-1 Brentford
45' + 4' Toney relieves the pressure on the visitors by drawing a foul from Coufal inside his own box.
45' + 2' Fornals' corner is cleared by Norgaard at the near post.
45' + 1' Five minutes of stoppage time are added on.
45' There's a brief delay as Jansson receives treatment. He should be okay to continue though.
44' CHANCE! Coufal gets free near the byline and he dribbles deep into the box, before slamming in a low cross. Norgaard throws himself at the cross, but can't clear it. A scramble ensues with multiple West Ham attackers trying to dig out the ball, but eventually Brentford clear!
42' CLOSE! Antonio lays it off to Benrahma on the edge of the box, providing the attacker with plenty of time to pick out a shot. Benrahma takes a touch before curling it just wide of the far post!
40' Chance! Benrahma bursts towards the edge of the box, before lashing a powerful strike that Raya carefully catches at the first attempt.  
39' Onyeka searches for the run of Toney with a long pass over the top, but this time Zouma and Ogbonna converge to deal with the danger. 
37' Toney wins a promising free-kick on the edge of the box following a cynical trip from Zouma. Mbeumo steps up and places it tamely into the wall, though. 
K. Zouma
Yellow Card
35' Zouma trips Toney on the edge of the box, following a brilliant 30-yard run by the attacker. The defender is shown a yellow card. 
33' Brentford have been superb so far and their dominance is underlined by the fact that they've already taken seven shots from inside the box.
31' West Ham appeal for a penalty after Bowen tumbles under pressure from Henry. But the referee - and VAR - remain unnmoved.  
M. Jensen
S. Baptiste
29' Baptiste is replaced by Jensen following that injury. It's dreadful luck for Baptiste who's suffered plenty of injuries during his time at the club.
28' Baptiste is down injured following that Rice challenge. It looks like a shoulder injury and he won't be able to continue.
26' Rice dispossesses Baptise and plays in Fornals, but the midfielder's cross is behind Bowen and the visitors clear.
24' Another Cresswell corner is cleared to safety.
22' Well, Brentford had fired plenty of warning shots, but now they have the opener. Toney, Mbeumo and Canos broke away with pace and intensity there, and the West Ham defence simply couldn't cope!
B. Mbeumo
20' MBEUMO! 1-0! Brentford take a deserved lead. Toney slices through the West Ham defence with a crisp throughball for Canos. Canos races through on goal before firing an angled drive from 12 yards that Fabianski pushes away! However, it runs perfectly for Mbeumo who knocks in the rebound despite a despairing save from Fabianski beyond the goal-line!
20' Ogbonna meets Cresswell's corner at the near post, but he flicks it way over the bar.
19' Antonio lays it off to Fornals, whose strike from the edge of the box takes a deflection and loops into the arms of Raya.
18' Antonio latches onto a long ball over the top of Jansson. He takes it under control, before cutting inside and firing a fierce 20-yard strike against Jansson. 
17' CLOSE! West Ham win their first corner of the day. Cresswell swings it towards the back post, where Zouma rises highest to head it downwards and into the side netting!  
15' The hosts enjoy a long spell of possession to try and settle into the game. Eventually, they feed Antonio who's tackled inside the box by Jansson,
13' Brentford are all over West Ham! Henry surges past Ogbonna, in their latest move, before feeding Canos who has a 20-yard strike deflected wide. 
11' SAVE! Another chance for Brentford. West Ham fail to clear a free-kick from Canos, as Pinnock heads it dangerously back into the box. Toney anticipates the opportunity and gets across his Ogbonna, before thundering a low volley from 12 yards that Fabianski skilfully pushes away.
9' Brentford have started with plenty of intent. They've come close to scoring twice already and West Ham look unsettled by their aggression and willingness to attack.  
7' Bowen directs Antonio's cross against the post, but it wouldn't have stood anyway. Antonio ran the ball out of play in the build-up.    
5' CHANCE! Henry whips an inviting cross into the six-yard box, and Mbeumo ghosts in to meet it! However, he can only guide his header wide of Fabianski's right-hand post.
3' Off the bar! Henry takes on Coufal and wins Brentford's first corner of the day. Canos' delivery falls to Baptiste, whose shot ricochets out to Mbeumo. Mbeumo promptly fires a 20-yard strike that beats Fabianski before clipping the top of the bar! 
1' West Ham get the first half underway. 
Janelt has picked up an injury during the warm up. He'll be replaced in midfield by Onyeka.
The players are emerging from the tunnel and kick off is just seconds away!
This is the first ever top-flight meeting between West Ham and Brentford, with each of the previous 20 league games between the sides taking place in the second tier. Brentford’s last win against West Ham was in the 1953-54 season (though they’ve only since met in 1992-93 since then).
Brentford, meanwhile, make just two changes to the team that drew with Liverpool last weekend. Kristoffer Ajer is replaced in defence by Zanka, while Baptiste takes Onyeka’s spot in midfield.
West Ham make seven changes to the side that defeated Rapid Wien in the week. The main news is that talismanic striker, Antonio, is able to start again today despite his exertions in that game. Areola, Johnson, Diop, Dawson, Noble, Yarmolenko and Vlasic all drop out.
SUBS: Mads Bidstrup, Yoane Wissa, Saman Ghoddos, Charlie Goode, Marcus Forss, Alvaro Fernandez, Mathias Jensen, Mads Roerslev Rasmussen.
BRENTFORD (3-5-2): David Raya; Zanka, Pontus Jansson, Ethan Pinnock; Sergi Canos, Shandon Baptiste, Christian Norgaard, Frank Onyeka, Rico Henry; Ivan Toney, Bryan Mbeumo.
SUBS: Alex Kral, Ben Johnson, Manuel Lanzini, Issa Diop, Alphonse Areola, Andriy Yarmolenko, Arthur Masuaku, Craig Dawson, Nikola Vlasic.
WEST HAM (4-2-3-1): Lukasz Fabianski; Vladimir Coufal, Kurt Zouma, Angelo Ogbonna, Aaron Cresswell; Tomas Soucek, Declan Rice; Jarrod Bowen, Pablo Fornals, Said Benrahma; Michail Antonio.
Brentford are in similarly high spirits though. They’re coming in off the back of a promising and entertaining 3-3 draw with Liverpool that left them 10th in the league. They’ll be aiming to take this optimism into today to claim another positive result.
Hello and welcome to live commentary of this Premier League fixture between West Ham and Brentford. The hosts enter this one fresh off two wins: one in the league against Leeds United and a midweek victory over Rapid Wien in the Europa League. They’ll be looking to build on their fine start to the season with another three points today.
