That's all from us today folks, we hope you enjoyed the game!
Palace are still without a win so far this season, but they now have two points on the board and they face Tottenham next time out. Meanwhile, West Ham remain unbeaten and they travel to Southampton in two weeks time.
The points are shared at the London Stadium between West Ham and Crystal Palace as it finishes 2-2, after a second-half comeback by the visitors. The Hammers led 1-0 at the break after Fornals' strike on 39 minutes, but Gallagher made it 1-1 just before the hour mark, with his first goal for the Eagles. Antonio then fired the hosts back into the lead on 68 minutes, but it didn’t last long, as Gallagher scored his second just two minutes later to level the game. Guehi had a great chance to win it in stoppage time for Palace, but fired his header over the bar.
90' + 4' Antonio breaks forward on the counter and tries to play it across to a team-mate in the box, but Guaita read it really well and comes off his line to gather.
90' + 2' CHANCE! Guehi should score! Gallagher whips a free-kick into the box and it is met by the head of Guehi, but he can't keep his header down and it flies just over the crossbar. Great opportunity!
D. Rice
Yellow Card
90' + 1' Rice is shown the first yellow card of the game, after he pulls Ayew down as the Palace man looked to break into the penalty area.
90' There will be a minimum of four minutes added time played at the end of the second half.
J. Schlupp
J. McArthur
88' Here comes the first Palace change of the game, with McArthur replaced by Schlupp.
A. Yarmolenko
Pablo Fornals
87' West Ham make another change, with Fornals coming off and he has been replaced by Yarmolenko.
85' It looks like Kouyate has a problem for Palace, he is down and needs some medical treatment. They are getting ready to make a change, so he may be the man to come off.
83' The hosts are just starting to ask a few questions of the Palace defence, controlling possession and forcing the visitors to get everyone back behind the ball.
81' Despite scoring 10 goals in their first three games, West Ham have also conceded in every match, which will be a concern for Moyes and something they need to try and sort out.
M. Lanzini
J. Bowen
79' Here comes the West Ham change, with Bowen the man heading off the pitch and he has been replaced by Lanzini.
78' The intensity of the game has dropped slightly in the last few minutes, with both teams taking a bit of a breather after a hectic second half.
76' Still no changes for either team yet, but it looks like West Ham are getting Lanzini ready on the sidelines. Can anyone nick a winner late on?
74' Palace are winless in their last 10 Premier League London derby matches (D5 L5), scoring just seven goals and conceding 19 in these matches.
72' This game really could go either way now, both teams are up for it and there is still around 20 minutes left to play!
C. Gallagher
70' GOAL! Palace have made it 2-2! West Ham led for just two minutes! Gallagher with his second of the game and what a goal it is! McArthur delivers a low cross into the box from the left and Gallagher controls it, turns away from Rice and Dawson, before coolly firing it into the back of the net.
M. Antonio
68' GOAL! Antonio fires West Ham back into the lead and makes it 2-1! It all comes from a long ball over the top by Cresswell and Antonio wins it ahead of Andersen, before racing into the box and then smashing it into the left corner of the net, with Guaita having no chance of stopping that one.
67' Palace have managed to keep Antonio a lot quieter in the second half, with the striker not seeing much of the ball in the last 10 minutes or so.
65' Not too far away! Andersen whips a lovely cross into the box from the right wing and Benteke powers a header towards the far left corner, but it flies wide of the post.
64' Blocked! The ball falls nicely to McArthur on the edge of the box after West Ham fail to deal with a corner and the midfielder drills an effort towards goal. However, it is blocked and goes behind for another set piece.
62' The visitors look dangerous on the counter at the moment, with West Ham looking shaky at the back and it's a very open game now.
60' Palace look a lot more confident since getting the equaliser and you can now hear their supporters, as before the goal they didn't have much to shout about.
C. Benteke
58' Benteke could have gone for goal himself with the header, but instead opted to set up his team-mate who was in a better position and Gallagher did the rest with a fine finish.
C. Gallagher
58' GOAL! Gallagher equalises for Palace, it’s 1-1! A deep cross is whipped in from the left wing and headed down by Benteke, straight to the feet of Gallagher, who turns, controls it and then fires it into the bottom left corner of the net. Fabianski gets a touch on it, but not enough to prevent it from going in.
57' Almost! Big mistake at the back by Dawson and it allows Benteke to run through on goal, but the angle is tight and he can't get a shot away. So he has to play it back and Palace are eventually crowded out.
55' Wild effort! Zaha goes for goal after racing forward from the halfway line, but he is put under pressure from Coufal and the Palace winger fires the ball high and wide.
54' Palace are yet to score under Vieira – the last permanent manager who saw his side fail to score in his first three Premier League games in charge was also at the Eagles, with Frank De Boer getting the sack after just four games (all goalless) at the start of 2017-18.
52' Bowen tries his luck from long range, after finding time and space on the edge of the penalty area. However, his strike flies high over the crossbar.
50' CHANCE! Another really good West Ham move, with Bowen controlling a pass down on his chest, before laying it through for Benrahma, who fires a low strike towards goal. However, Guaita reads it well and makes a good stop.
48' Palace try and play the ball out from the back, but West Ham put them under a lot of pressure and win it back in the penalty area. However, luckily for the visitors, the Hammers don't capitalise.
46' The second half is under way!
Palace are still yet to score a Premier League goal this season and they are yet to test Fabianski in the West Ham goal today, who hasn't had anything to do. They'll need to make a few changes to try and get back into this one, as the hosts are in control.
West Ham lead 1-0 at the break after a dominant first half performance, with Fornals firing them ahead on 39 minutes. The hosts have controlled the game, creating a few chances to break the deadlock, but Palace stood firm for a long time. However, they couldn't stop some brilliant play between Antonio and Fornals after a quick counter, with the latter adding the finishing touch.
45' There will be a minimum of two minutes added time played at the end of the first half.
45' Another good counter by West Ham! Fornals breaks forward down the left and races into the box, before trying to pull it back to Benrahma. However, Benrahma doesn't read the pass and Palace clear the danger.
44' The hosts are comfortably seeing the game out to half-time at the moment, with Palace still not offering anything in attack to suggest that they are going to get an equaliser.
42' Penalty shout! Bowen dribbles his way into the Palace box and then goes down under pressure from a couple of defenders, but there is very little contact and the winger throws himself to the ground. Nothing given.
41' West Ham are pushing forward in search of another goal before the break, they look full of confidence in front of goal and good value for the lead.
M. Antonio
39' Antonio and Fornals linked up superbly in the box and it looked like Antonio would go for goal himself, but instead he opted to cut it back to Fornals, who converted.
Pablo Fornals
39' GOAL! West Ham finally take the lead, Fornals finds the back of the net to make it 1-0! It all starts with Antonio, after he is released through on goal, but he is blocked off and then plays it back to Fornals. They then play a quick one-two deep inside the box, before Fornals coolly slots it into the back of the net from close range. Excellent move and finish.
37' Coufal is back on the pitch now and it looks like he will be fine to continue. The right-back has been up and down the wing so far, getting plenty of crosses into the Palace box.
35' Stoppage in play here as Coufal is down with a head injury following a collision with Zaha and he appears to be in some discomfort. The medical team are on the pitch giving him some treatment.
33' Free-kick to Palace in a decent position now, after Kouyate dives into the back of Soucek and brings him down near the touchline. They have looked strong at set pieces so far.
31' Wasted opportunity! Gallagher tries something different from a free-kick, but his pass is really poor and it goes straight out of play.
30' We’re at the half an hour mark now and it remains goalless between West Ham and Crystal Palace at the London Stadium. However, West Ham are well on top.
28' Almost! Rice meets a corner at the near post and flicks the ball on towards the far corner, but none of his team-mates gamble on it and Palace clear the danger.
26' Soucek and Fornals have attempts from the edge of the box blocked in quick succession, as Palace sit deep inside their own box and try and soak up the pressure.
25' West Ham are looking to win each of their opening three games to a league campaign for the third time in their history, previously doing so in the 1958-59 and 1983-84 top-flight.
23' OFF THE LINE! So close for West Ham! Coufal delivers a good cross into the box from the right wing and Antonio jumps to meet it, but Guaita gets there first and punches it onto the head of his own team-mate, which sends it towards an empty net. Ward has to react quickly and slides in to clear it off the line.
21' Palace just need to try and get the ball down and keep it for a few minutes in midfield to calm things down. They'll want to try and get Zaha involved more, as the winger hasn't seen much action so far.
19' West Ham are on top at the moment, they look very comfortable, forcing Palace back and the Eagles are struggling to cope with the front three of Benrahma, Bowen and Antonio.
17' CHANCE! Bowen drills a low cross into the six-yard box and into the feet of Dawson, who shows great feet to turn and then power a shot towards the bottom left corner of the net. However, a Palace defender sticks a leg out and blocks it. That appeared to be heading in.
15' Blocked! Coufal's cross falls to the feet of Antonio just inside the penalty area and he turns and fires a strike towards goal. However, Andersen makes a vital block and Guaita gathers.
14' Awkward one for Andersen! The centre-back is chased down by Benrahma as he fails to deal with a bouncing ball and it gets all the way to the edge of the box, but Andersen just flicks it away in the nick of time.
12' West Ham won 3-2 in their last Premier League meeting with Crystal Palace – only once before have they won consecutive matches against the Eagles in the competition, winning both games in the 2016-17 campaign.
10' Palace win their first corner of the game now, after they work it well in the final third and Benteke almost finds space for a shot, but gets crowded out and it eventually comes back to Mitchell. The left-backs whips a cross in, but Dawson clears it behind.
8' Coufal is very lucky to get away with just a warning after he pulls Zaha to the ground after the Palace man looked to break forward on the counter. That should have been a booking.
6' Ayew almost breaks forward on the counter-attack following a West Ham corner, but the striker won the ball by blocking Coufal's pass with his hand and the free-kick stops play for a free-kick.
5' Palace have everyone back behind the ball at the moment, soaking up the pressure. However, West Ham are playing well and Bowen wins their first corner of the game, but the visitors easily clear the danger.
3' West Ham are enjoying the early possession here, keeping it well in midfield and looking to release Bowen and Antonio in behind in the opening minutes.
1' We're under way!
The teams are out on the pitch and kick-off is just a few minutes away, stay tuned for all the match action!
Meanwhile Patrick Vieira makes one change to his starting XI, with Schlupp dropping to the bench and he has been replaced in the front three by Ayew.
David Moyes names the same West Ham starting line-up for the third successive time, with Rice captaining the side as Noble is on the bench. Antonio leads the line up front for the Hammers, fresh from his brace on Monday against Leicester.
PALACE SUBS: Jack Butland, James Tomkins, Jean-Philippe Mateta, Jeffrey Schlupp, Martin Kelly, Reece Hannam, Jairo Riedewald, Robert Street, Jesuran Rak-Sakyi.

West Ham have won both of their first two Premier League games this season, beating Newcastle and Leicester and they’ve scored four goals in each of these games. A victory today would send them back to the top of the table.
