That's all from this West Ham win. Thanks for joining us and, until next time, goodbye!
West Ham are up to fifth, at least until tomorrow, while Leeds stay 14th. Their winless home runs extends to five matches.
West Ham claim a deserved win at Elland Road! They let a lead slip to lose to Manchester United this week but this time recover from an early deficit. Klich scored a Leeds penalty at the second attempt, before Soucek nodded the visitors level. They left it late for the winner, but Ogbonna found the top corner 10 minutes from time.
90' + 5' FULL-TIME: Leeds United 1-2 West Ham
R. Snodgrass
Pablo Fornals
90' + 5' Former Leeds man Snodgrass gets on for the final seconds in place of Fornals.
90' + 4' West Ham twice have the opportunity to get in on the counter, twice instead misplacing the crucial pass. It matters not, however, as Raphinha concedes a foul at the other end and the Hammers have some respite.
90' + 2' A deep cross is needlessly headed behind by the unchallenged Soucek, yet West Ham coolly deal with the second set-piece.
M. Noble
Yellow Card
90' + 1' West Ham are fighting to protect their lead, but Noble oversteps the line and concedes a foul, earning a booking and giving Leeds a chance to get the ball forward.
90' + 1' There will be a minimum of four minutes of added time.
90' HUGE CHANCE! This is the chance for Leeds! A brilliant cross from the right finds Rodrigo between Ogbonna and Balbuena, but he remarkably directs his close-range header straight at a grateful Fabianski.
89' Roberts wins a corner on the left for Leeds, but Noble easily clears at the near post. West Ham should be comfortable here but it remains 2-1.
88' POST! West Ham's corner is cleared, but the centre-backs stay up and combine in impressive fashion! Ogbonna works space for a cross from the right and Balbuena heads beyond Meslier but against the upright. Leeds survive.
87' SAVE! Meslier makes another top stop! Leeds appear to believe Haller is offside as the ball bounces off Ayling for the striker to attempt a spectacular overhead kick. It is a great effort, and it stands, the flag staying down, but Meslier dives away to keep the forward at bay.
B. Johnson
J. Bowen
85' Is Moyes trying to take some time off the clock? The second change quickly follows the first for West Ham as Johnson takes Bowen's place.
M. Noble
S. Benrahma
84' After a busy but frustrating display, Benrahma makes way for Noble. The substitute takes the armband as West Ham look to protect the points.
81' No side has scored more set-piece goals (excluding penalties) than West Ham (eight, level with Chelsea) in this season's Premier League, while no side has conceded more from such situations than Leeds (seven, level with Leicester City).
A. Cresswell
80' It is Cresswell who swings over a wonderful free-kick after a needless Costa foul. Leeds have given away far too many set-pieces here.
A. Ogbonna
80' GOOAAALLLL!!! OGBONNA NODS WEST HAM AHEAD! It's a brilliant header! The visitors have been a threat from set-pieces throughout and the big centre-back picks out the top-right corner with Meslier rooted. 2-1!
79' Haller has contested a massive 29 duels but won just 31 per cent of them. He is beaten by Cooper, meaning Rodrigo can look to drive a pass towards Roberts, but the substitute cannot control on the edge of the box.
77' STUNNING SAVE! Meslier keeps Leeds level! What a stop! Balbuena thunders onto a West Ham free-kick with a powerful header, but the Leeds goalkeeper remarkably gets his left hand up to parry, allowing the hosts to clear. Great work.
75' AGONISING! Fornals thinks he has found the corner! Rice feeds a pinpoint pass into Fornals in the box, with Cooper comically lunging after the ball and missing. A stretching finish across Meslier appears set to land just inside the post but instead trundles wide. So, so close.
T. Roberts
P. Bamford
74' Bielsa makes his third change before West Ham use their first. Bamford is off as Roberts is introduced.
74' One end to the other! Cresswell slips as Costa runs at him, but Rice comes across and then Fornals makes the tackle, feeding Cresswell to start a West Ham attack. Benrahma looks for a pass this time and finds Bowen, who has men between himself and the goal but digs out a curling attempt which just misses the target.
72' A wild backpass brings Meslier from his line, and the goalkeeper's touch is a heavy one. Haller wins a 50-50 outside the area on the West Ham left, but a heavy challenge knocks the ball out of play, giving Leeds the ball back and allowing the keeper to retreat.
70' Good hold! Leeds' corner breaks for Klich to hammer in a low shot. He catches it sweetly and Fabianski does really well not to spill the shot with Bamford lurking.
69' WIDE! Back come Leeds and Phillips! He seizes the ball in front of Benrahma and rifles in a low shot which looks to be heading just wide but earns a touch from Fabianski.
68' CLOSE! Benrahma's sixth shot is his closest yet! The winger controls 20 yards from goal and looks for the top-right with a curling effort. Meslier dives and does not reach it, but the ball drops past the post.
67' Dallas works the ball wide for Raphinha, who beats Fornals at the second attempt and finds Bamford with his cross. The striker is moving away from goal, though, and the ball lacks power, meaning he can only loop a header wide.
65' So poor from Benrahma again. He goes for goal once more - a game-high fifth attempt - and does not come close to picking out the near corner as his team-mates wait patiently in the centre.
64' Leeds have struggled from set-pieces, and now Rodrigo brings down Soucek just outside the area on the left. Another crossing opportunity.
63' Benrahma is certainly not afraid to shoot. He always looks for goal once within range and blasts over the top after a lucky bounce falls his way this time.
62' Might West Ham look to make a first change? Leeds have already introduced Costa and Shackleton, changes that initially provided a boost but have since had little impact.
59' But back come Leeds. An energetic spell swings momentum back the other way, with white shirts first to every ball. Chances are scarce in this second half, though.
57' West Ham have Leeds penned in. Costa again tries to escape and is hunted down by three Hammers players. The visitors' physical approach is proving effective.
56' Bowen has been outstanding for West Ham. He wins the ball from Costa and then earns a free-kick, keeping West Ham on the front foot.
55' Disappointing from Benrahma. Meslier punches a Leeds corner away smartly, but the ex-Brentford winger gathers and has time to look for a cross. He shoots instead from wide on the left and Meslier can easily gather at his near post.
54' SAVE! Another corner causes problems for Leeds! Ogbonna keeps the balll alive and Haller loops a header goalwards, with Meslier touching the effort over the top.
53' BLOCK! Ayling denies Haller again! Bowen does brilliantly, controlling a throw-in in the area and then working a yard to chip a cross beyond Dallas. Haller controls, turns and shoots, but Ayling is able to get across to help the ball over the crossbar.
51' Charging run from Rice! The West Ham captain marches straight up the centre of the pitch and chops back onto his right. A Leeds challenge just knocks him off his stride, though, and then Phillips diverts the ball away from Benrahma.
50' Leeds changed this up on their left flank, but West Ham still appear determined to attack down that side. Bowen flashes a cross straight into the arms of Meslier, before a second attempt to get in behind Dallas sees Phillips close out Benrahma.
47' WIDE! Really nice from Leeds, but Bamford misses the target! Shackleton charges up the right and his pass towards Raphinha instead runs for Bamford, whose swift turn catches Coufal out and creates room for a shot. He curls past the post, though, with Fabianski scrambling.
46' Leeds start brightly! Costa cuts a low ball into the box and Klich patiently prompts another crossing opportunity for Dallas, now playing at left-back. He drives a delivery in and Ogbonna just gets up with Bamford as the ball loops up for Fabianski to stretch and gather.
46' KICK-OFF: Bamford gets us back up and running!
J. Shackleton
E. Alioski
46' Alioski is also off as Shackleton is introduced. This is a switch Bielsa did not divulge in his pre-match news conference...
Hélder Costa
J. Harrison
46' Leeds are making a pair of changes before the restart, first replacing Harrison with Costa.
The first half saw eight shots on target recorded. Only Aston Villa's 7-2 win versus Liverpool has seen more attempts on target in the first half of a Premier League game this season (12).
The first half ends in slightly more measured fashion after a chaotic first 25 minutes. Klich missed his penalty, awarded inside two minutes, but a VAR review due to Fabianski's positioning granted a retake. Klich scored at the second attempt. West Ham responded well, however, and got the goal they deserved as Soucek nodded over the line.
45' + 2' HALF-TIME: Leeds United 1-1 West Ham
45' + 1' Fabianski is being worked but has not been truly tested since conceding. He punches a corner clear in front of his line and resets to take a left-footed Ayling strike into his chest.
45' + 1' There will be a minimum of two minutes of added time.
45' Leeds are in the ascendancy now. They work the ball smartly on the right and Klich's pass towards Raphinha deflects behind for a corner.
42' Leeds appeal for a penalty! Bamford advances towards a left-wing cross but is beaten to it by Ogbonna, who clumsily controls with his midriff, perhaps also making contact with his arm. The officials are not interested.
40' Fabianski gathers! Leeds have a free-kick on the left, which is only half-cleared, and Harrison is able to cross. He finds the head of Bamford, but his effort is straight at the goalkeeper.
37' Brave goalkeeping from Fabianski! Alioski wins a free-kick, which Raphinha delivers onto the head of Cooper. A disappointing header loops up towards the back post, where Harrison is attempting to pounce. Fabianski dives to punch clear ahead of the Leeds man's boot and the flag is up for offside regardless.
35' This has been a breathless first half! Leeds have had 65.7 per cent of the possession but have almost been caught on the counter on a number of occasions.
E. Alioski
Yellow Card
33' Alioski is the first Leeds player into the book after he goes through the back of Bowen on halfway.
33' Leeds go short with their corner and then angle a cross in to Raphinha, but he cannot control on his chest and Fabianski recovers possession.
32' Good work from Balbuena. A slip in the West Ham defence allows Raphinha to get into a crossing position and a teasing ball is headed for Rodrigo until Balbuena heads behind for a corner.
31' CLOSE! Benrahma hits the side-netting... and Meslier is not sure! Leeds allow the West Ham danger-man to shoot from the edge of the area, a cute curling effort, and Meslier is scrambling as the ball just passes his post.
31' Again Benrahma has everything but the final ball! His stepovers deceive defenders this time, but Fornals cannot reach an optimistic pass.
28' Straight at Fabianski! This should be a big Leeds chance; as it is, it is a simple save. A ball in behind catches Ogbonna out and Rodrigo runs through, chopping inside a challenge in the box but then going for goal when Bamford is up in support. Fabianski holds on.
27' A wonderful piece of skill from Benrahma beats Raphinha in the centre of the pitch and he charges forward with Haller for company. The pair are not on the same wavelength, though, with the final pass unable to find the striker.
26' Since his Premier League debut in February, only Harry Kane and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (both four) have more headed goals in the competition than Soucek (three). 
J. Bowen
25' It is Bowen who swings over the deep corner, ideal for the giant Soucek to attack.
T. Souček
25' GOOAAALLLL!!! SOUCEK TOWERS IN! West Ham get the equaliser they deserve! Soucek climbs above Dallas at the back post and Meslier cannot get a firm two hands to the header, with a defender hacking clear from behind the goal line. 1-1!
24' Harrison tries to shield the ball behind for a goal-kick but has Coufal for company and loses out, conceding a needless corner.
23' It is Benrahma's turn to come inside from the flank, creating space 20 yards from goal on his right foot, but Ayling dives in front of an underwhelming shot.
21' These two certainly do not lack ambition. Bowen cuts inside from the right, breezes past a couple of players and then lets fly from outside the area. A wild shot is never troubling Meslier, though.
19' Leeds, who lead, are coming back into this. Raphinha pushes the ball beyond Ogbonna and tries to go past him. The defender sticks with his man all the way, though, and limits the winger to a weak prod into the arms of Fabianski.
18' Wide! Alioski cuts a cross back to Rodrigo, unmarked in the box, but the ball comes at him quickly and a first-time shot is well wide.
17' We have been spoiled for goalmouth action so far, but the game has just slowed a little for the first time.
14' West Ham have taken control of this game now. Leeds are continuing to press forward, but that is simply leaving space for Bowen and Benrahma to run into.
12' ANOTHER CHANCE! Haller gets into position again! He turns to shoot right-footed this time, but Ayling lunges in and again does enough to take the sting off the ball, allowing Meslier to collect. This has been a very lively start!
10' CHANCE! Haller aims a header straight into the legs of a defender! West Ham have a corner from the right, which is cleared before for a second, again failing to trouble Leeds. But they keep the attack alive and Soucek nods a cross on to find Haller unmarked, only to see a weak effort deflected into the arms of Meslier.
9' West Ham should make more of this! A quick Soucek pass sets Bowen away to run at Cooper, who he swiftly evades. But Bowen takes his time to find a man from the byline on the right and allows the defender to recover. He has team-mates up in support but cannot find them.
8' Leeds are enjoying themselves! Klich gets down the right and drills in a low ball towards Rodrigo, but Fabianski is quick off his line to gather.
7' He needed two bites at it, but Klich has now scored each of Leeds' past three league penalties.
M. Klich
Penalty Goal
6' GOOAAALLLL!!! KLICH AT THE SECOND ATTEMPT! Fabianski cannot deny his Poland team-mate a second time. Klich shoots low to the right this time and finds the corner. 1-0 Leeds!
5' RETAKE! That save will not stand! And Klich is going to take the penalty again. Fabianski is indicating towards the screen in the stadium, believing it shows he was on his line. The officials disagree.
4' SAVE! OR IS IT? Fabianski gets down to an awful, tame Klich penallty, but there is a VAR review as Fabianski may have strayed from his line.
Ł. Fabiański
Yellow Card
3' It is an easy decision for referee Michael Oliver to book Fabianski before he faces Klich's penalty.
2' PENALTY! Leeds have a spot-kick inside two minutes! Cooper takes the ball off Haller on halfway, marches forward and slides in Bamford, who rounds Fabianski and goes down.
1' KICK-OFF: West Ham's Bowen get us under way!
This will be the first league meeting between Leeds and West Ham since the 2011-12 Championship campaign, when both games ended in draws with the away side equalising in the 90th minute on each occasion.
The Leeds XI comes as no surprise, because Marcelo Bielsa read out his line-up in his pre-match news conference! David Moyes, who openly pondered if that might have been a bluff, reacts by naming a back four for the first time since the opening-day defeat to Newcastle United. That sees Benrahma introduced for a full debut.
Subs: Darren Randolph, Manuel Lanzini, Robert Snodgrass, Craig Dawson, Mark Noble, Ryan Fredericks, Ben Johnson.
West Ham (4-2-3-1): Lukasz Fabianski; Vladimir Coufal, Fabian Balbuena, Angelo Ogbonna, Aaron Cresswell; Tomas Soucek, Declan Rice; Jarrod Bowen, Pablo Fornals, Said Benrahma; Sebastien Haller.
Subs: Kiko Casilla, Ian Poveda-Ocampo, Tyler Roberts, Helder Costa, Pablo Hernandez, Pascal Struijk, Jamie Shackleton.
Leeds United (4-1-4-1): Illan Meslier; Stuart Dallas, Luke Ayling, Liam Cooper, Ezgjan Alioski; Kalvin Phillips; Raphinha, Rodrigo Moreno, Mateusz Klich, Jack Harrison; Patrick Bamford.
Let's get the team news...
There are still no fans allowed back at Elland Road due to coronavirus rules, but Leeds supporters will be tuning in hoping to see the end to a four-match winless home run.
Both Leeds and West Ham are enjoying solid seasons, separated by six places but just three points in the Hammers' favour, and will be hoping to bounce back from defeats last week to Chelsea and Manchester United respectively.
