That's all from us today, goodbye and we'll see you next time.
West Ham's victory takes them up to seventh in the Premier League table, meanwhile Leeds, who remain winless after six games, have dropped into the relegation places and languish in 18th. Marcelo Bielsa's side need to find a win from somewhere, and if they tail off as poorly as they did today, they may continue searching for some time yet.
Looking beyond Michail Antonio as today's man-of-the-match would be absurd, as his winner was his third shot of seven on target. Furthermore, his link-up play with his fellow forwards ensured West Ham's attack looked dangerous on every venture forward, proven so by four key passes in attacking areas.
It's difficult to say, particularly on the balance of their second-half performance, that David Moyes' Hammers didn't deserve to win that match. The constant attacking threat of West Ham, through goalscorers Bowen and Antonio, proved to be too much for Leeds to handle as the half went on, and despite some glimpses of the attacking potency they showed in the first half, Leeds faded badly in the second.
A. Yarmolenko
M. Antonio
90' + 7' Antonio, whose goal looks like the winner, is replaced by Yarmolenko for West Ham.
90' + 5' Leeds have what may be their last chance to salvage a point, however Phillips' cross finds no one and rolls out for a goal-kick.
C. Summerville
J. Shackleton
90' + 3' Shackleton is taken off and replaced by young Dutch winger Summerville for Leeds, although it does appear to be too late for Leeds to rescue this match.
C. Dawson
J. Bowen
90' + 2' Equalising goalscorer Bowen is replaced for West Ham, by centre-back Dawson. David Moyes not hiding his intention to ensure his side hang onto this slim lead.
90' + 1' Five additional minutes will be played, and Leeds don't have long to equalise with the seconds ticking away.
D. Rice
90' Rice, who has controlled the midfield all day for his side, can take so much credit for that goal. Taking the ball on the turn and setting up Antonio for a textbook, clinical finish, the England man is proving his worth at Elland Road here today.
M. Antonio
90' GOOALLLLL!!!! That looks like the winner for West Ham! The Hammers break forward at speed, and with Leeds' defence nowhere to be seen, Antonio has time to slot the ball past the advancing Meslier and into the bottom corner! West Ham lead 2-1, and look to have secured the three points here!
89' A sustained Leeds attack sees Shackleton cross for Klich, however his header is easily blocked by Ogbonna and West Ham clear upfield.
87' Firpo's forward ball to Klich, who looks to release Rodrigo, results in Zouma bringing down the Poland midfielder. Phillips wins the ball back from Soucek in similar fashion, and again the referee's whistle remains unblown. Kevin Friend has let this game ebb and flow, and the spectacle has been far better for it.
85' Dallas does well to win possession and drive the ball up-field, however he mis-controls Klich's through ball in the box, and Leeds' most promising attack since the equaliser ends with a whimper.
83' West Ham counter and Antonio beats Shackleton with a beautiful piece of skill, however his shot is blocked and rolls out for a corner.
83' Rodrigo is surrounded in the West Ham box, but is still able to get a shot away on the turn, which Fabianski saves with ease.
T. Roberts
Yellow Card
82' Roberts is booked for Leeds after fouling Aaron Cresswell. The West Ham left-back takes the resultant free-kick.
81' A Dallas diagonal ball is easily intercepted by Rice, and West Ham are able to attempt a counter attack. They've looked by far the more likely to win this game in the second half.
79' Soucek has a chance to score from a Coufal cross, but his acrobatic effort does little to trouble Meslier.
N. Vlašić
Pablo Fornals
78' Fornals is withdrawn by David Moyes, and replaced by West Ham's summer signing, Vlasic.
77' CHANCE! Antonio races towards the Leeds goal and cuts inside, however his shot is woeful and flies well over the bar, possibly ever higher than his side's previous free-kick.
76' Benrahma's free-kick is high and wide, and flies well over Meslier's goal into the crowd at Elland Road.
75' Fornals is brought down on the edge of Leeds' box, and Benrahma stands over the free-kick for West Ham.
73' The linking play between Bowen and Benrahma is causing Leeds' defence trouble at an increasingly frequent rate. Since the start of the second period, it's been near one-way traffic towards Meslier's goal.
I. Meslier
Yellow Card
71' Meslier is yellow carded by the Kevin Friend, after complaining to the referee about Soucek clattering through him at a West Ham free-kick. 
T. Roberts
69' Raphinha, Leeds' talisman who has been by far their most creative player, is withdrawn and replaced by Roberts. 
Junior Firpo
Own Goal
67' GOALLL!!! West Ham are finally level, and there's no ruling out this one! Bowen cuts inside from the right, sprints into the box and his shot deflects off Firpo and past the deceived Meslier! You can't say that hasn't been coming, and Bowen in particular has looked more and more threatening with each touch of the ball. The goal however does count as Firpo's, into his own net.
65' Cooper is the target from Leeds' resultant corner, and his header causes a scramble in the box. The ball falls to Phillips, but the England midfielder's shot on the turn is wayward and easily stopped by Fabianski.
64' CLOSE!!! Leeds really should be 2-0 up after that glorious chance! Raphinha again cuts inside from the right to feed Klich, who, with so much time, looks to place the ball beyond Fabianski. His side-footed shot is poor and goes drifts side, but on the way is deflected for a corner!
62' SAVED! It's Soucek popping up again in the Leeds box, this time with a bullet header that looks certain to score. That is before Meslier gets across acrobatically and pushes the ball away with two strong hands. David Moyes' side are getting closer to an equaliser with every attack.
61' West Ham's left side is proving to be their most dangerous thus far, and Benrahma is able to win a corner from a Cooper deflection.
59' CLOSE! West Ham again look to score from a free-kick, and Coufal's cross is deflected off Cooper towards Antonio. His header, however, is straight at Meslier, and Leeds are able to deal with this set-piece in a much more effective fashion.
57' Harrison looks to break into open space for the first time since his introduction, however his cut-back ball is easily dealt with by the West Ham defence.
M. Antonio
Yellow Card
55' Antonio is booked for his involvement in the foul, although luckily Meslier is able to continue after receiving treatment.
55' Wow! The goal is chalked off by VAR, as Antonio is ruled to have fouled Meslier in their mid-air collision, and Elland Road breathes a sigh of relief as Leeds retain their lead!
54' Hang on, we're going to VAR! Meslier is still down, and Kevin Friend heads over to the VAR screen to see if the French goalkeeper's injury was caused by foul play.
53' GOAL! West Ham are back on level terms! Cresswell's free-kick aims for Antonio, who collides mid-air with Meslier whilst contesting for the ball. With the Leeds keeper down, Soucek taps into the empty net and his side are level!
51' The battle between Leeds' Cresswell and Antonio continues, and the Whites' debutant brings down the West Ham forward in a challenge more familiarly seen on a rugby field than a football pitch.
50' Coufal has acres of space to pick out a perfect cross, however it's met by no-one and the Cresswell's deflected rebound shot for West Ham is also dealt with by Leeds' back four.
48' Cresswell has the chance for a dream debut goal from a Leeds corner kick, but the ball deflects well wide for a second Leeds corner.
47' Raphinha looks to dribble in-field and set Leeds away on their first second-half attack, until he is clipped from behind by Antonio for the first free-kick of the second period.
46' We are back underway for the second-half, and Leeds have 45 minutes between them and a first win of the season!
J. Harrison
D. James
46' James is withdrawn at half-time for Leeds, and is replaced by regular left-wing occupant Harrison.
West Ham's double pivot in midfield, Rice and Soucek, have won possession nine times between them. This, however, is overshadowed by Leeds' right-back Shackleton, who has won the ball nine times on his own. Raphinha's tirades up the right wing may not have been as successful without the 21-year-old Leeds Academy product in support.
A frantic first-half comes to an end, and despite Leeds leading 1-0, this game is still wide open. Both sides have seen copious amounts of goalmouth action, and both Meslier and Fabianski have been forced into saves on several occasions. Leeds' inexperienced defence has so far coped well with the threat of West Ham's front four, however Benrahma and Bowen's play suggests that it won't be long before at least one of them is successful in converting a chance. Although, should Leeds continually win the ball within West Ham's defensive half, Bielsa's men look more than capable of extending their slender lead.
45' + 4' CLOSE!! Bowen again tries a shot from distance, and this curling effort does have the beating of Meslier. Luckily for Leeds however, it also beats the post, and the following goal-kick is the last action of the first half.
45' + 3' SAVED!! Fornals races through the middle of Leeds' defence far too easily and is one-on-one with Meslier, however the young Leeds keeper meets him and saves the resultant shot with his knee.
45' + 2' Raphinha looks to have shaken off his injury well enough, as he chases a loose ball all the way back to Fabianski in West Ham's goal, who clears frantically.
45' Three additional minutes will be played in this half, much of which is to account for the injury to Raphinha.
44' Raphinha is down injured having been shunted to the ground by Antonio, and despite occurring off the ball, the West Ham forward is not booked by referee Kevin Friend.
43' CLOSE!! Benrahma is proving to be a thorn in Leeds' side thus far, and once again is skilfully able to beat Leeds' right-hand defence, however his inviting cross is met by no-one, and the ball rolls out for a Leeds goal-kick.
41' Raphinha skilfully beats Cresswell and sets a Leeds attack in motion. Rodrigo looks to feed the unmarked James but is dispossessed, allowing Zouma to deal with the situation for West Ham.
39' West Ham's Cresswell is lucky not to be booked after bringing down Raphinha on the right-hand touchline. He's been given a torrid time by the Leeds goalscorer thus far.
37' Right-back Shackleton drives up the field for Leeds and his link-up with Raphinha sees a cross from the Brazilian find Klich in the box. However, the ball is at a difficult height and Ogbonna is easily able to clear before Klich can prod the ball home.
35' OFF THE POST! Leeds once again win the ball high up the field and Rodrigo sets up Raphinha. His shot, very similar to that of the goal, beats Fabianski but this time bounces back off the post and Rodrigo is unable to volley in the rebound.
34' Leeds' Klich leads the way so far in terms of key passes with three, one of which set up the opening goal. Particularly in the absence of Patrick Bamford, the importance of Klich in maintaining the Leeds press has been invaluable to Marcelo Bielsa's side so far in this match.
32' Cresswell, making his debut in the heart of Leeds' defence, has continually done well thus far in dealing with one of the league's most physical strikers, in Antonio.
30' A diagonal ball from Shackleton looks to utilise the pace of James on the left wing for Leeds, however Fabianski races out and gathers before the Wales man is able to connect with the ball.
Pablo Fornals
Yellow Card
28' West Ham's Fornals receives his side's first booking, having pulled back Raphinha as the Leeds winger looked to break from a corner.
26' Raphinha's goal is the second consecutive Premier League game in which he's opened the scoring for Leeds, having scored in the 13th minute of their away fixture at Newcastle last time out.
24' Bowen tries an effort from distance, and his looping strike stings the gloves of Meslier. West Ham's response suggests they might not be behind for long.
22' West Ham look to respond immediately, and a mix-up in Leeds' makeshift defence almost allows Antonio to finish past Meslier.
Yellow Card
20' Raphinha receives the first booking of the match, bringing him back down to Earth after that elating opening goal.
M. Klich
19' The energetic pressing from Leeds' midfield was the architect of that opener. Rodrigo and Klich were both involved, and it was up to Poland midfielder Klich to lay that ball on a plate for Raphinha to strike home.
19' GOALLLL!!!! Leeds lead 1-0! Raphinha capitalises on a gap in West Ham's defence and places a well-hit shot into the bottom-left corner! What a great goal by Marcelo Bielsa's side!
16' Antonio, who has had direct involvement in both of West Ham's best chances so far, is very much the focal point of his side's attack thus far. Every ball forward from Rice and Soucek is meeting the Jamaica international at some point in the Hammers' forward movements.
14' Leeds' high pressing is causing West Ham problems, however every time West Ham re-gain possession, they look extremely potent on the counter-attack.
12' Raphinha looks to have won the ball from Cresswell right on West Ham's goal line, however the offside flag is raised as he looks to cross, and Leeds' attack is thwarted.
10' Leeds' high press sees West Ham dispossessed in their own half, but as Rodrigo is setting to shoot from the loose ball Fabianski races out to prevent the Spain striker from connecting and spares his defenders' blushes.
9' SAVED!!! Benrahma and Antonio cause Leeds trouble again; this time it's Benrahma with a curling shot, that requires the fingertips of Meslier to tip the ball away for another West Ham corner!
7' Meslier is able to punch clear, unconvincingly, from the corner, and Leeds' defenders help out to punt the ball well up-field.
6' CLOSE! Benrahma provides some great link-up play to feed Antonio, and his shot across goal is tipped wide by Meslier for the first corner of the match!
4' Benrahma has a speculative effort from distance that looks to trouble Meslier, however the ball whips past the Leeds goalkeeper's right-hand post.
3' Leeds' relentless pressing, led by Rodrigo and Klich, forces Ogbonna back into a corner, however Rice tracks back to help out his team-mate and the danger is averted.
1' Fornals kicks-off for West Ham, and we're underway at Elland Road!
The teams enter into a rapturous atmosphere at a packed-out Elland Road, and kick-off is just moments away...
David Moyes, however, has made a whopping ten changes to the team that beat Manchester United in midweek. Winger Jarrod Bowen is the only player to keep his place from that side, and so it remains to be seen whether this side can help West Ham pick up their third win of the season, against a team still in search of their first.
For Leeds, 19-year-old Charlie Cresswell makes his first Premier League start in the centre of defence. The Preston-born Leeds Academy product impressed at the back in his side’s win over Fulham in the EFL Cup, and Marcelo Bielsa has rewarded the defender's performance by granting him his Premier League debut at Elland Road.
WEST HAM UNITED SUBS: Alphonse Areola, Craig Dawson, Issa Diop, Ben Johnson, Mark Noble, Alex Kral, Nikola Vlasic, Manuel Lanzini, Andriy Yarmolenko.
WEST HAM UNITED (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.
LEEDS UNITED SUBS: Kristoffer Klaesson, Liam McCarron, Cody Drameh, Leo Hjelde, Jack Harrison, Crysencio Summerville, Tyler Roberts, Joe Gelhardt, Sam Greenwood.
LEEDS UNITED (4-1-4-1): Illan Meslier; Jamie Shackleton, Charlie Cresswell, Liam Cooper, Junior Firpo; Kalvin Phillips; Raphinha, Stuart Dallas, Mateusz Klich, Daniel James; Rodrigo.
West Ham, meanwhile, sit in ninth position, and are a side brimming with confidence, having dumped Leeds’ arch-rivals Manchester United out of the same competition on Tuesday.
Without a victory so far this season, and lying just one place above the relegation zone, home side Leeds are fast approaching must-win territory, and will look to build on Tuesday’s penalty shoot-out victory over Fulham in the EFL Cup.
Good afternoon, and welcome to live coverage of this Premier League fixture between Leeds United and West Ham United, at Elland Road.
