Commentary

That's all from us today folks, we hope you enjoyed the game!
This win moves West Ham up to fifth in the table, ahead of a meeting with Manchester United next weekend. Meanwhile Leeds have now won just one in their last five games and this leaves them 11th. They return to Elland Road on Saturday, as they welcome Chelsea.
West Ham secure a 2-0 victory over Leeds thanks to first-half goals from Lingard and Dawson. However, Leeds will be wondering how they didn’t manage to score after numerous chances and they had a goal disallowed for offside early on. Raphinha and Bamford both had a couple of opportunities in front of goal, but just couldn’t find a way past Fabianski or Dawson, who had to clear one effort off the line. Fornals almost made it three for the hosts, but his volley cannoned off the crossbar and it finished with just the two goals.
90' + 3' FULL-TIME: WEST HAM 2-0 LEEDS
90' + 2' West Ham are just slowing the pace down at every opportunity now, set pieces and throw-ins, just to see the game out, with the final whistle imminent.
90' There will be a minimum of three minutes added time played at the end of the second half.
89' It looks like Leeds are going to be frustrated today, they've thrown everything at the hosts in this second half, but just haven't been able to find the breakthrough goal. They'll keep pushing, but West Ham will be confident of seeing the game out.
B. Johnson
J. Lingard
87' Another West Ham change now, with Lingard the man coming off and he has been replaced by Johnson.
86' OFF THE LINE! Dawson denies Leeds late on! Ayling with a good cross into the six-yard box, which Bamford tries to flick on and it then cannons off a couple of players before trickling dangerously towards the goal line. However, Dawson sticks out a leg and clears it off the line. Brilliant defending.
85' West Ham are sitting deep and soaking up the pressure at the moment, they have everyone back behind the ball as Leeds continue to press forward.
83' There's less than 10 minutes left on the clock for Leeds to pull one back and make it an interesting finale, can they get anything out of this game?
81' Leeds have lost 12 of their last 13 in London in all competitions (D1), losing all four in the capital in the Premier League this season. Leeds are one of only three top-flight sides yet to win a point in London this term, along with Sheffield United and West Bromwich Albion.
J. Lingard
Yellow Card
79' Lingard is the first West Ham player to be booked for his challenge on Raphinha.
77' CHANCE! Bamford with a great opportunity in front goal and he should be doing much better. Raphinha squares it across the six yard box and the striker was unmarked and had time and space, but it somehow fires his effort over the crossbar!
76' Not too far away! Cresswell dummies the free-kick and it is flicked to Rice instead, who gets a shot away and it flies underneath the Leeds wall. However, he drags it wide of the goal.
75' Free-kick to West Ham in an excellent shooting position now, after Llorente trips up Soucek right on the edge of the penalty area. Cresswell and Rice are both standing over it.
J. Bowen
S. Benrahma
73' West Ham have made their first substitution now, with Benrahma the man coming off and he has been replaced by Bowen.
71' Blocked! Dallas with a low strike at goal from the edge of the penalty area, but Diop gets across and makes a really good block to turn it away from goal.
70' The three changes by the visitors have certainly improved them, they look a lot more threatening in the final third now.
68' West Ham are looking to win three consecutive home Premier League matches for the first time since March 2019, while manager David Moyes hasn’t won three in a row at home since winning his last six as Everton manager in 2013.
66' Leeds are starting to pile on the pressure once again, with Fabianski having a lot more to do now. However, the West Ham defence look fairly comfortable.
64' CHANCE! Allioski does really well down the left wing, drifting into the box and then pulling it back for Raphinha, who smashes an effort towards goal, but it is too close to Fabianski, who makes a great stop. Either side of the keeper and that would have gone in.
62' BLOCKED! There are a few appeals for a penalty by the West Ham players as Cooper and Phillips both block shots in the box, after Leeds fail to deal with another free-kick delivery from Cresswell. However, nothing is given as both players had their arms close to their bodies and made excellent blocks.
Rodrigo
T. Roberts
60' Leeds have now made all of their substitutions, with the final one seeing Rodrigo come onto the pitch and he has replaced Roberts.
58' The game is quite open at the moment, with Leeds enjoying a little bit more possession, but not really testing Fabianski in the final third.
56' Cresswell has provided seven assists in the Premier League this season - his joint best tally in a single PL campaign (also 7 in 2017-18).
54' Good start here for Leeds again, they are showing intent and have a bit more creativity now going forward. A goal early on in the second half would be massive.
52' OFF THE BAR! Leeds manage to clear a corner, but only to the edge of the box and Fornals controls it and then fires a volley towards goal, which seems to be heading over Meslier, but it cannons off the crossbar instead. So close to a third!
50' SAVE! Fabianski is called into action to deny Raphinha, after he fires an acrobatic overhead effort towards goal, which takes a big deflection off a West Ham defender and flies towards the top right-hand corner. However, the keeper tips it over the bar.
K. Phillips
Yellow Card
49' The first yellow card of the game is shown to Phillips, after he and Fornals challenge for a high ball and the Leeds man just catches his opponent late.
47' CHANCE! Llorente with a great pass through the West Ham defence for Bamford to run onto and the striker only has the keeper to beat as he races through on goal. However, Bamford curls it just wide of the left-hand post! That should have been heading into the back of the net.
46' The second half is under way!
E. Alioski
M. Klich
46' The other change sees Klich replaced by Alioski.
J. Harrison
Hélder Costa
46' Leeds have made a double substitution ahead of the second half in an attempt to get back into the game, with one of those being Costa replaced by Harrison.
It was almost 3-0, as Dawson found space in the box at another corner, but this time he hit the post with another header just before the half-time whistle. It will be a tough ask for Leeds to get anything out of the game now.
West Ham lead 2-0 at the break thanks to goals from Lingard and Dawson, but they could have scored more, despite a bright early start by the visitors. Leeds had the ball in the back of the net after six minutes through Roberts, but it was ruled out for offside, as Costa strayed as a cross was whipped in. Lingard then won a penalty for the hosts, but his spot-kick was saved by Meslier, however, the rebound fell straight back to him and he slotted it into the bottom corner. Dawson then doubled their lead just before the half an hour mark, with a diving header at the far post.
45' + 1' HALF-TIME: WEST HAM 2-0 LEEDS
45' + 1' OFF THE POST! Dawson again meets a corner delivery into the box, but this time his effort strikes the woodwork! Leeds don't look comfortable at all when it comes to set pieces and this one was delivered in from the left and Dawson again met it at the far post, heading it down towards the bottom right-hand corner of the net. However, it strikes the post and then bounces away to safety.
45' There will be a minimum of two minutes added time played at the end of the first half.
43' Problem here for West Ham as Soucek is down after colliding with the post as he went for the ball at a corner. It looks like a painful one for the midfielder, but luckily he will be fine to continue.
41' Leeds with an chance from a set piece now, however, the ball into the box by Raphinha is poor and easily cleared by West Ham. Wasted opportunity.
39' There’s not long left to play before the end of the first half, can Leeds pull one back before the half-time whistle?
37' Save! Benrahma cuts in from the left wing, gets to the middle of the goal and then unleashes a good strike towards the bottom right-hand corner of the net. However Meslier gets across well and makes a good save to turn it behind for a corner.
36' Lingard has scored four goals in six Premier League appearances for West Ham, as many as he netted in his previous 38 in the competition for Manchester United.
34' Decent chance! Lingard finds space on the edge of the penalty area and he tries to curl the ball into the top right-hand corner of the net. However, he gets too much on it and it flies high over the crossbar.
32' The game is very open at the moment, with Leeds leaving quite a few gaps at the back and West Ham are trying to break forward on the counter.
30' Leeds look shocked at how the game has turned out so far, they had such a bright opening, but now find themselves 2-0 down and face an uphill battle to get anything out of this.
A. Cresswell
Assist
28' Cresswell's set piece delivery is normally very good and he showed his quality there with the ball in for Dawson, who simply couldn't miss as his head connected with the ball.
C. Dawson
Goal
28' GOAL! West Ham double their lead, it’s 2-0 Dawson with a diving header at the far post to convert Cresswell’s corner. It was a lovely deep corner delivery by Cresswell, catching everyone out, with Meslier unsure whether he should come and get it or not and Dawson just sneaks past Llorente and Ayling, powering his header into the back of the net from close range.
27' Free-kick to West Ham in a very good position now, after Cooper brings down Antonio around 20 yards out and it looks like Cresswell will take it. The left-back whips it towards goal, but it takes a big deflection off Ayling and goes out for a corner.
25' Leeds have lost just one of their 10 Premier League away games against West Ham (W6 D3), going down 0-3 in March 1998. This is their first such visit since a 4-3 victory in November 2002.
23' Leeds will be disappointed to go a goal down after their bright start to the game and they have had the better chances in front of goal.
J. Lingard
Goal
21' GOAL! Lingard sees his penalty saved by Meslier, but he then converts the rebound to send West Ham into the lead, it's 1-0! The Leeds keeper did brilliantly to get down to his right and make the save, as it wasn't the greatest of shots from Lingard. However, he couldn't stop the rebound from falling straight to Lingard and he smashes it into the opposite corner of the net.
J. Lingard
Penalty Miss
21' MISSED! It's not the greatest of penalties from Lingard, not close enough to the corner and lacking some pace, but it is still a great stop from Meslier. However, luckily for Lingard the effort is pushed back into the box and he has a tap in from just a few yards out.
I. Meslier
Penalty Save
21' SAVED! Lingard fires the ball towards the bottom left-hand corner of the net from the penalty spot, but he doesn't get it close enough to the corner and Meslier gets down and makes an excellent save. However, the rebound falls straight back to Lingard...
20' WEST HAM PENALTY! Lingard races into the box from the left wing, cuts inside and skips past Ayling, who sticks out a leg and catches the winger on the ankle and he goes down. The referee shows no hesitation and straight away points to the spot.
18' Good counter! Meslier clears the ball from the back, but it comes straight back at Leeds and West Ham counter quickly through Antonio down the left wing, who chips a ball into the box and Soucek meets it at the far post. However, he doesn't make very good contact and it flies well wide.
15' The likes of Lingard, Antonio and Benrahma have hardly touched the ball so far and if they have it, it has been in the defensive third, where they have been penned for much of the first half.
13' West Ham just need to settle the game down at the moment, enjoy some possession and let the Leeds players do the running, as the hosts are struggling to get a grip on proceedings so far.
11' West Ham are looking to complete their first league double over Leeds since 1953-54 in the second tier, while they last beat them in both top-flight meetings in a season back in 1929-30.
9' The visitors look very comfortable at the moment, they are showing more intent in the final third and look dangerous, as we've seen from the changes they've had in the opening 10 minutes.
8' Leeds have the ball in the back of the net again! This time it is Bamford from close range after Raphinha’s cross from the byline. However, the ball crossed the line before the cross was delivered, so it is ruled out and rightly so.
7' NO GOAL! It is a very tight call at the far post, with not much in it between Costa and Cresswell. However, the replays show that the Leeds man was just ahead of the defender and the goal is ruled out.
6' GOAL RULED OUT! Costa is found at the far post after a deep ball is whipped into the box by Dallas and flicked on by Bamford, the winger then pulls it back and Roberts races onto it and smashes it into the back of the net from close range. However, the flag goes up for offside straight away and the goal is ruled out. However, VAR are going to take a look.
5' CHANCE! Lovely move by Leeds down the right, really nice play between Ayling, Roberts and Costa, all one touch passes and Costa drifts unmarked into the West Ham box. The winger has time to take a touch and shoot, but instead opts to shoot first-time and his effort flies just over the crossbar.
3' Leeds make a bright start and push forward early on, with Roberts doing well in the final third, getting to the byline, but the ball just goes out of play before he can get a cross into the box.
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!
