Commentary

That's all from us tonight folks, we hope you enjoyed the game!
A hugely disappointing result for West Ham, who now must turn their attentions back to the Premier League, they return to action on Tuesday with a trip to Wolves. Meanwhile Wimbledon will be looking forward to seeing who they draw in the next round, which takes place on Monday. Next up for them in League One is a trip to Sunderland.
A thrilling game at Kingsmeadow sees Wimbledon book their place in the next round of the FA Cup after a superb 4-2 victory over Premier League opposition. Wimbledon led 2-0 at the break after goals from Appiah and Wagstaff, but it looked like West Ham would come out firing in the second half after Pellegrini made all three substitutions at the break. However, that was soon dampened after Wagstaff scored his second goal of the game inside the opening minute to put the hosts 3-0 up. The Hammers rallied and pulled it back to 3-2, with Perez and Felipe Anderson scoring, but they didn't have enough quality in the final third to go on and score another. Sibbick then put the game beyond doubt late on, scoring the home sides fourth goal of the game.
90' + 5' FULL-TIME: WIMBLEDON 4-2 WEST HAM
90' + 4' CHANCE! Another fantastic save by Ramsdale to deny West Ham a goal and once again it is Antonio who he prevents from scoring. The winger just had the keeper to beat from a few yards out, but Ramsdale was quick off his line and made a terrific stop.
90' + 3' Wimbledon look happy to see the game out now, the Hammers have just two minutes left to find two goals, which looks highly unlikely to happen.
90' + 1' SAVE! Ramsdale pulls off a superb stop to avoid a nervy couple of minutes. The ball is launched over the backline and into the Wimbledon penalty area, which Antonio latches onto it, but Ramsdale gets down quickly to smother the ball and take the ball away from the Hammers man.
90' There will be a minimum of five minutes of added time played.
A. Wordsworth
Assist
AFC Wimbledon
88' The goal comes from a corner which Wimbledon take short, with Wordsworth receiving the ball just outside the penalty area, he looks up and spots Sibbick at the far post, who nods the ball in.
T. Sibbick
Goal
AFC Wimbledon
88' GOOOAAALLL! Wimbledon have a fourth goal which will surely wrap up the victory now, with just a couple of minutes remaining on the clock, it's 4-2! Sibbick has only just come onto the pitch, but he manages to get on the end of deep cross into the box by Wordsworth and he powers his header into the back of the net.
T. Sibbick
D. Connolly
AFC Wimbledon
86' Wimbledon make their third and final substitution, with Connolly struggling with an injury, he has been replaced by Sibbick.
84' Noble tries his luck from long range, but just like Jervis at the other end of the pitch, he gets his effort all wrong and the ball flies over the crossbar.
83' Wimbledon do well on the counter-attack, get numbers forward and the ball then falls to Jervis on the edge of the penalty area, but he skies his shot high over the crossbar. Terrible effort.
81' West Ham haven't created many chances inside the last 20 minutes, apart from the goal, but they need to score just one more in order to force a replay.
A. Masuaku
Yellow Card
West Ham United
79' Masuaku is shown a yellow card for simulation, after he goes down dramatically in the penalty area and appeals for a penalty, but there is little, if any, contact by Wordsworth and the referee is not impressed.
78' Time is starting to run out for the Hammers, they are dominating possession and have the hosts penned inside their own half but they are struggling to get the ball into the box and create any goalscoring chances.
J. Jervis
K. Appiah
AFC Wimbledon
76' Wimbledon make their second substitution of the game with Appiah coming off the pitch and he has been replaced by Jervis.
73' Wimbledon go on the attack almost straight away from the restart, winning a corner which is whipped deep into the box by Wordsworth, but West Ham defend the ball well and look to mount another attack at the other end.
Felipe Anderson
Goal
West Ham United
71' GOOOAAALLL! West Ham have another, it's 3-2! Felipe Anderson with a superb free-kick, curling the ball over the wall and into the top corner, giving Ramsdale no chance. There is still plenty of time left on the clock for the Hammers to get another goal and complete the comeback.
70' Free-kick to West Ham in a very good shooting position after Nightingale hacks Snodgrass down around 20 yards out. It looks like Felipe Anderson is going to take it...
68' Appiah appears to be in some pain after the challenge from Fredericks, the medical staff come onto the pitch but it looks like he will be fne to continue.
R. Fredericks
Yellow Card
West Ham United
67' Fredericks is the first player to be shown a yellow card after his late and high challenge on Appiah.
T. Soares
M. Pinnock
AFC Wimbledon
65' Here is the first Wimbledon change, Pinnock is the man coming off and he has been replaced by Soares.
64' Not too far away! Antonio works some space in the penalty area and tries to curl the ball into the top corner, but his effort sails just wide of the Wimbledon goal.
63' West Ham are looking to eliminate an opponent from both the FA Cup and League Cup in the same season for the first time since 2000-01, when they did so against Walsall.
61' It looks like Wimbledon are about to make their first change of the game, looking to get some fresh legs out on the pitch after putting in a big shift so far. An hour played and the hosts lead 3-1.
59' West Ham are starting to put some good pressure on the Wimbledon goal now, with a couple of corners in quick succession.
Lucas Pérez
Goal
West Ham United
57' GOOOAAALLL! West Ham pull one back and make it 3-1! Perez with a low strike, straight into the bottom corner after a cross into the penalty area isn't dealt with by the hosts. Antonio forces Ramsdale into making a strong save, but the rebound falls straight to the feet of Perez, who fires the ball past Ramsdale. Is the comeback on?
56' The home supporters are in fine voice, they're loving this performance from their side and at the moment it looks like they'll be in the draw for the fifth round.
54' The hosts are having to do much more defending now, with the Hammers seemingly camped inside their half but Wimbledon are still pressing high and not allowing them time and space on the ball.
52' West Ham are seeing more of the ball now, but despite the changes they aren't carving open any opportunities in the Wimbledon final third.
50' Against non-Premier League sides in the FA Cup and League Cup combined, West Ham winger Robert Snodgrass has been involved in 24 goals in 18 appearances (10 goals, 14 assists).
48' Worst possible start to the second half for Pellegrini, can the Hammers overturn a three goal advantage now? They've got it all to do as Wimbledon look very comfortable.
K. Appiah
Assist
AFC Wimbledon
46' The first attack of the second half leads to a goal, they work the ball well and Appiah finds space on the edge of the penalty area, he spots Wagstaff making a run in the box and picks him out perfectly.
S. Wagstaff
Goal
AFC Wimbledon
46' GOOOAAALLL! What a start to the second half this is! Wimbledon are now 3-0 up! Wagstaff with his second goal of the game. Appiah with a low cross into the box, which Wagstaff reads well, gets in front of Diop, who is too slow to react and the Wimbledon man flicks the ball past Adrian, to give his side a three goal lead.
46' The second half is underway!
R. Fredericks
G. Diangana
West Ham United
46' The third and final change for the visitors, sees Diangana replaced by Fredericks.
Lucas Pérez
A. Carroll
West Ham United
46' Carroll was unable to influence the game much in the first half and he has been replaced by Lucas Perez for the second half.
Felipe Anderson
Pedro Obiang
West Ham United
46' Pellegrini has made three substitutions ahead of the second half, the first sees Obiang replaced by Felipe Anderson.
West Ham will surely have to make a change or two at the break in order to turn this game around, as they've barely tested Ramsdale in the Wimbledon goal and have struggled to keep the ball as the hosts are pressing high up the pitch.
A superb first half performance from AFC Wimbledon sees them lead 2-0 at the break, after goals from Appiah and Wagstaff late on. The visitors went closest in the early stages, with Hernandez striking the post but the hosts rallied and dominated much of the last 20 minutes of the first half, keeping possession well and forcing the Premier League side into making mistakes. Appiah's shot beat Adrian after a big deflection off Ogbonna, whilst Wagstaff showed great composure to slot the ball past the Hammers keeper after racing through on goal.
45' + 1' HALF-TIME: WIMBLEDON 2-0 WEST HAM
45' There will be a minimum of one minute of added time played.
43' It's all Wimbledon at the moment, the visitors don't have any answers and they will just want to get to half-time and regroup. Manuel Pellegrini may opt to make a change or two at the break.
S. Wagstaff
Goal
AFC Wimbledon
41' GOOOAAALLL! Wimbledon double their lead, it's 2-0 just a few minutes before the break! Wagstaff races through on goal with just Adrian to beat in the Hammers goal after a huge mistake by Obiang on the halfway line. The midfielder loses the ball and Wagstaff and Appiah pounce on it, with Wagstaff then sprinting clear, before keeping his composure to slot the ball past the onrushing Adrian and into the back of the net.
40' West Ham have been eliminated from two of their last four FA Cup ties against League One teams, losing 0-2 at Wigan Athletic in the fourth round last season.
38' Not long left to play until the half-time whistle now, can West Ham find an equalising goal before the break? Or, will Wimbledon extend their lead and put themselves in an excellent position to progress to the next round of the competition.
36' The Hammers have been second best for much of the last 15 minutes or so and they need to show huge improvement if they are to get back into the game, as the hosts look comfortable and are pushing for a second goal.
A. Wordsworth
Assist
AFC Wimbledon
34' It looked like Wordsworth was lining up a shot for himself, but he looked up and spotted Appiah in a much better position, fooling the West Ham defence by slipping the ball through to the striker.
K. Appiah
Goal
AFC Wimbledon
34' GOOOAAALLL! Wimbledon lead 1-0! The League One side take the lead after some poor defending by the Hammers. Appiah found space on the edge of the box and beat the offside trap as Wordsworth plays the through ball, his shot took a big deflection taking it out of the reach of Adrian who was wrong footed and the ball landed in the bottom corner of the net.
33' We're past the midway point in the first half now and it remains goalless at Kingsmeadow between Wimbledon and West Ham, with the League One side holding their own so far and frustrating the Hammers.
31' Carroll almost breaks through on goal after a loose ball falls into his path, however, the striker is unable to get to the ball first as the quicker Wimbledon defenders just nick it off his toes in time.
29' The atmopshere inside the ground has dropped in the last couple of minutes as the pace of the game slows down. It was a frantic opening few minutes, but lacking quality in the final third by both teams.
27' No chances for either side at the moment, the tempo of the game has dropped as Wimbledon look to consolidate possession and they will be very happy with their performance so far.
25' This is Wimbledon’s first FA Cup fourth round tie since their reformation in 2002 – they’ve lost all their previous two FA Cup meetings with Premier League opposition (2014-15 vs Liverpool and 2017-18 vs Tottenham).
23' It's the hosts who are enjoying more possession at the moment, they have West Ham penned inside their own half and the visitors are having to work hard in order to win the ball back, giving away a couple of silly free-kicks in the process.
21' Connolly is getting a lot of joy down the right wing, with Masuaku unable to deal with him at the moment. The winger is beating the Hammers man almost every time and getting balls into dangerous areas.
19' SAVE! Adrian is called into action to deny Connolly after he met Pinnock's long throw into the West Ham area. However, it looked like the header was going wide of the goal anyway, but Adrian had to make sure.
18' Not too far away! Carroll heads the ball back across the area to Hernandez, but his curling effort goes wide of the Wimbledon goal.
16' Both teams look dangerous in attack so far, West Ham going the closest but Wimbledon have had a couple of long range efforts, all of which have flown over the crossbar.
14' Wimbledon and West Ham have met once previously, with the Hammers winning 3-1 in the League Cup second round this season.
12' OFF THE POST! West Ham go close to opening the scoring. It comes from a long hopeful ball, which is headed away but straight it falls straight to the feet of Snodgrass, who looks up and plays in Hernandez. He fires an effort at goal, which takes a deflection off Watson and strikes the post, before going out for a corner.
10' Free-kick to the hosts in a very good position after Connolly gets wedged between Masuaku and Ogbonna and they bring him down. Pinnock whips the ball into the box, goes for goal himself, but Adrian pushes the ball away.
9' Mistake by Adrian. The West Ham goalkeeper receives a short backpass and the keeper tries to chip the ball over the onrushing Wimbledon player, but he ends up hitting it out of play close to his own goal.
7' The Hammers have been unable to get the ball down and control possession so far, with the hosts defending well in numbers, playing a good pressing game and they've looked dangerous in attack themselves.
5' Almost! Connolly does brilliantly down the left wing, just evading the offside flag and he plays a low ball across the six-yard box, but Antonio is in the right place, at the right time to intercept and clear the danger, with Wagstaff lurking at the far post, ready to tap the ball in.
4' Wimbledon are pressing very high up the pitch in order to win the ball back off the visitors and limit the space that they have to play into. Fast start by both teams.
2' Strong early start here by the Hammers, they win an early corner after Snodgrass' cross into the penalty area is blocked. The winger takes the set piece, which bounces around the box, before his low cross hits the sidenetting.
1' We're underway!
The teams are out on the pitch and kick-off is just a few minutes away, stay tuned for all of the match action!
The big team news for the Hammers is that Marko Arnautovic is not included in the visitors squad, with rumours linking him with a move away from the club. Carroll and Hernandez form a two up front, whilst Adrian gets a chance to impress in goal.
Wimbledon have picked up just five points from their last six games and therefore manager Wally Downes has made multiple changes to his team, in an attempt to get back to winning ways. Kwesi Appiah replaces Pigott him in attack while Wagstaff, Connolly, Wordsworth and McDonald also come into the starting XI.
WEST HAM SUBS: Lukasz Fabianski, Ryan Fredericks, Declan Rice, Conor Coventry, Nathan Holland, Felipe Anderson, Lucas Perez.
WEST HAM (4-4-2): Adrian; Michail Antonio, Issa Diop, Angelo Ogbonna, Arthur Masuaku; Robert Snodgrass, Pedro Obiang, Mark Noble, Grady Diangana; Andy Carroll, Javier Hernandez.
WIMBLEDON SUBS: Joe McDonnell, Toby Sibbick, Tyler Garratt, Liam Trotter, Tom Soares, Jake Jervis, Joe Pigott.
WIMBLEDON (4-2-3-1): Aaron Ramsdale; Tennai Watson, Terell Thomas, Rod McDonald, Adedeji Oshilaja; Will Nightingale, Anthony Wordsworth; Dylan Connolly, Mitchell Pinnock, Scott Wagstaff; Kwesi Appiah.
The hosts overcame fellow League One side Fleetwood Town in the third round, in a thrilling game that ended 3-2 in favour of Wimbledon after a 90th minute goal from Kwesi Appiah. They are currently bottom of League One, seven points adrift of safety and they suffered a 3-0 defeat last time out.
West Ham are hoping for a strong cup run this year, with no European commitments and safety from relegation seemingly clinched as they sit 10th in the Premier League. The Hammers beat Birmingham 2-0 in the third round and they now face League One side, AFC Wimbledon at Kingsmeadow.
