West Ham 1-2 Brentford LIVE! Wissa goal - Premier League match stream, latest score and updates today

Yoane Wissa thumped home a stoppage-time winner as Brentford floored West Ham 2-1 at the London Stadium.

The Bees leapfrogged their opponents in the Premier League table, courtesy of DR Congo forward Wissa’s last-gasp strike.

Jarrod Bowen thought he had scrambled the Hammers a draw with his first goal in 15 Premier League games 10 minutes from time, but replacement Wissa blasted into the net after the hosts failed to clear from a Mathias Jensen free-kick.

Bowen’s low finish cancelled out Bryan Mbeumo’s opener for the Bees and almost grabbed West Ham a point.

But then Lukasz Fabianski parried Pontus Jansson’s head from Jensen’s whipped free-kick, and Wissa rushed onto the ball to deliver the killer blow.

West Ham paid the price for a host of missed chances and botched build-up, but the visitors impressed again as they continued their fine start to their debut Premier League campaign.

Thomas Frank: "If we do that every week, it will be easy! We deserved to be up in the first half. We defended well in the box. I don't think we played well in the second half, after the storm settled they scored the 1-1 goal."

16:24 , Giuseppe Muro

Yoana Wissa on his late winner: "It was very good. Every player wants to start. I know I needed one chance to score. When I came on it was 1-1. It's a good feeling, good atmosphere, very happy for the fans. Very happy.

"It was now or never because we had too many chances to score in the first half. Very good for the next game."

FT: West Ham 1-2 Brentford

16:00 , Giuseppe Muro

And there goes the full-time whistle. That was the last kick of the game!

GOAL! West Ham 1-2 Brentford | Wissa 90’

15:58 , Giuseppe Muro

Incredible! Brentford have won it at the death!

Late drama as Brentford snatch the three points with the last kick of the game. Wissa blasts a first-time shot through the crowd and into the back of the net. Wow.

15:53 , Giuseppe Muro

90 mins: Jansson takes the ball of the head of Bowen at the back post. We’re going to have three minutes of added time. Three minutes for Brentford to hold out.

15:50 , Giuseppe Muro

85 mins: Huge chance for West Ham! Rice clips a ball in but neither Antonio or Soucek can get on the end of it on th stretch. Can Brentford survive the final five minutes?

Jack Rosser at the London Stadium

15:48 , Giuseppe Muro

How West Ham needed that.

They’d gone extremely flat in the final minutes and it looked as if they had run out of ideas.

A terrific finish from Bowen at the near post.

15:47 , Giuseppe Muro

82 mins: West Ham sense a winner here in the final 10 minutes now...

GOAL! West Ham 1-1 Brentford | Bowen 80’

15:43 , Giuseppe Muro

Equaliser! It has been coming. Brentford have been hanging on for a long time. The Bees can only clear a corner as far as the edge of the area and Bowen squeezes a first-time strike inside the upright from a corner. Brilliant finish and the Hammers are level.

15:41 , Giuseppe Muro

77 mins: Into the final 15 minutes. It looks like Vlasic is coming on for West Ham.

15:39 , Giuseppe Muro

75 mins: Soucek goes down inside the area under challenge from Jansson but there was nothing in that.

15:38 , Giuseppe Muro

74 mins: You wonder how much longer Moyes will leave it before making a change here. Brentford have taken the string out of West Ham’s momentum and frustrating in staring to build around the London Stadium.

15:35 , Giuseppe Muro

72 mins: A rare foray forward for Brentford in this second half. They win a corner but Fabianski comes and claims.

Jack Rosser at the London Stadium

15:33 , Giuseppe Muro

West Ham had a spell where it felt like a goal was coming any moment but they’ve stepped off since then and could do with an injection of energy.

Whether that be from the bench or someone out there who knows but it’s certainly needed.

Brentford getting under their skin with a little timewasting too.

15:31 , Giuseppe Muro

67 mins: It’s one-way traffic with just over 20 minutes to go...

15:28 , Giuseppe Muro

64 mins: Brentford have offered nothing going forward in the second half. West Ham are still unable to find an equaliser though.

15:26 , Giuseppe Muro

63 mins: Brentford survive again! Brilliant play from Antonio forces a chance for Fornals that is blocked and then Coufal has a follow-up effort blocked by some desperate Brentford defending. How much longer can Brentford hold out?

15:24 , Giuseppe Muro

60 mins: Bowen goes close again! Coufal does well on the right, crosses for Bowen and he heads inches wide of the far post. Should he have done better there? West Ham are getting closer though.

Jack Rosser at the London Stadium

15:21 , Giuseppe Muro

Better start to this half from the Hammers, much sharper and not losing out on every second ball.

Brentford getting numbers back so they’ve a job on their hands in the final third but there are chances here.

15:20 , Giuseppe Muro

57 mins: Bowen denied by Raya! West Ham continue to create chances. Fornals slides a ball through to Bowen but Raya rushes out for save.

15:19 , Giuseppe Muro

55 mins: More pressure from West Ham. Antonio gets in behind but his touch means he can’t get a shot away, his cross is cleared and then Coufal slices a left-foot volley over the bar. West Ham are starting to turn the screw.

15:17 , Giuseppe Muro

51 mins: West Ham are not happy with the amount of time Brentford are taking for goal kicks and throw ins. The Bees are trying to take the string out of this as the Hammers try to build up some momentum.

15:13 , Giuseppe Muro

48 mins: Tipped over by Raya! A brilliant dripping effort from Benrahma forces a good save from the Brentford goalkeeper. West Ham have start the second half with real intent.

15:12 , Giuseppe Muro

47 mins: Much better from West Ham, this. Jorgensen brings down Antonio and is lucky to avoid a yellow card. Free-kick in a good position, 25 yards from goal in a central position. Benrahma, Creswell and Rice are standing over it..

15:10 , Giuseppe Muro

46 mins: West Ham start the half on the front foot. Bowen presses from the front, gets the ball from Jansson and feeds Fornals. But Brentford swarm around the ball inside the area and clear. Encouragement for the Hammers though

Kick-off!

15:08 , Giuseppe Muro

We’re back underway for the start of the second half at the London Stadium…

15:03 , Giuseppe Muro

The Bees are on course to keep this record going as things stand...

HT: West Ham 0-1 Brentford

14:52 , Giuseppe Muro

West Ham end the half well and some encouragement for Moyes, but Brentford deserve their lead. The Bees have been excellent.

14:48 , Giuseppe Muro

44 mins: A bit of concern for Brentford as Jansson goes down. But it looks like he will be able to continue

Jack Rosser at the London Stadium

14:47 , Giuseppe Muro

West Ham improving before the break but the decision making in the final third has to be better.

Coufal delayed there and allowed Brentford the chance to get back in.

Jack Rosser at the London Stadium

14:47 , Giuseppe Muro

43 mins: Coufal gets the byline but his cutback is hacked away from Brentford

14:44 , Giuseppe Muro

40 mins: So close from Benrahma! Better from West Ham. Quick play form the Hammers opens up some space, Antonio feeds Benrahma and he bends an effort inches wide of the right-hand post. That was only inches away.

14:43 , Giuseppe Muro

38 mins: Brentford have been excellent so far and Rice and Soucek are being overrun in midfield. That might be something David Moyes look at at half-time. Brentford seem to have more numbers in there.

14:41 , Giuseppe Muro

37 mins: A late challenge from Jorgensen on Fornals. The Brentford man is perhaps fortunate to escape a yellow card there.

Jack Rosser at the London Stadium

14:40 , Giuseppe Muro

Brentford have been superb so far. Stronger, sharper and faster than West Ham all over.

Soucek and Rice need to get a grip in midfield if the Hammers are to come back into it, Toney finding it far too easy to drop back and drive at the back four so far.

14:39 , Giuseppe Muro

35 mins: Mbeumo hits it straight into the wall.

14:38 , Giuseppe Muro

34 mins: Great play from Toney. He’s been brilliant again today. Toney goes on a driving run and knocks it past Zouma, who is forced to bring him down on the edge of the area. Yellow card for Zouma and a free-kick to Brentford in a really dangerous position in the centre of the goal...

14:35 , Giuseppe Muro

31 mins: Great challenge from Henry on the cover. Just as Bowen was about to strike on goal. West Ham fans want a penalty but that was a clean challenge from Henry.

14:33 , Giuseppe Muro

30 mins: Brentford, who lost Vitaly Janelt in the warm up to injury, have been forced into a change as Baptiste falls awkwardly. He can't continue and is replaced by Jensen.

14:30 , Giuseppe Muro

26 mins: That’s more like it from West Ham. Rice steals the ball high up the pitch, Antonio feeds Fornals but his cross is hacked away with Bowen waiting to pounce.

14:27 , Giuseppe Muro

23 mins: It’s been more of the same from Brentford since the goal and West Ham look rattled. Rice and Soucek have not been able to get a foothold in the game. Brentford are making things very difficult for the home side to get anything goes.

Jack Rosser at the London Stadium

14:25 , Giuseppe Muro

Just after West Ham looked like they had recovered from that poor start and taken control, Brentford hit back.

Fantastic first-time ball from Toney to get Canos in behind, Fabianski did well to get across to the follow-up but it just wasn’t enough. Deserved lead for the visitors.

Time for some of that new found character from West Ham.

GOAL! West Ham 0-1 Brentford | Mbeumo 20’

14:23 , Giuseppe Muro

Brentford lead at the London Stadium!

The Bees deserve that. Toney slips a ball through to Canos, his shot across goal is kept out by Fabianski but Mbeumo reacts quickest to bundle the ball over the line.

14:21 , Giuseppe Muro

17 mins: West Ham have built up a bit of momentum now. Antonio’s pace looks a real threat and that is three times he has got in behind the Brentford backline. Jansson is struggling to deal with Antonio’s pace. Good game so far, this.

Jack Rosser at the London Stadium

14:20 , Giuseppe Muro

West Ham have recovered a bit of composure after that very messy start. Antonio should do better when he cuts in and Zouma was unlucky there, but that should give them some confidence.

14:19 , Giuseppe Muro

15 mins: Chance for West Ham! The Hammers get a corner on the right, Raya gets underneath the cross and Zouma heads inches wide at the back post. That was a real chance for the home side.

14:18 , Giuseppe Muro

14 mins: Better from West Ham as Antonio has a shot blocked inside the area.

14:17 , Giuseppe Muro

13 mins: West Ham clear. And try to retain the ball and have a spell of possession to take the spring out of the Brentford start

14:16 , Giuseppe Muro

12 mins: Brentford threaten again. West Ham look a bit leggy, they have not started this game well at all. Brentford break with pace, get numbers forward and Canos has an effort deflect wide. Another Brentford corner..

14:14 , Giuseppe Muro

14:13 , Giuseppe Muro

10 mins: Fabianski denies Toney!

Brentford keep the ball alive after West Ham clear the free-kick, the ball comes to Toney and he sticks the palms of Fabianski, who turns the ball behind. Brentford have come flying out the traps. The home fans are trying to get their team going..

14:12 , Giuseppe Muro

9 mins: Brentford press is causing West Ham an issue early on. The Bees have been a breath of fresh air since coming into the Premier League and they have made a really encouraging start today. A set-piece for Brentford in a crossing position from the right...

14:10 , Giuseppe Muro

8 mins: A bit better from West Ham as they try to get into the game. Rice sends the ball down the left, Antonio gives chase but cannot keep the ball in play.

Jack Rosser at the London Stadium

14:08 , Giuseppe Muro

A very bright start from the Bees here. Mbuemo has seen one effort clip the bar and should really have tested Fabianski with that header. West Ham escape without conceding but an early warning.

14:07 , Giuseppe Muro

4 mins: Another chance for Mbeumo!

Brentford should be ahead. A great ball in from the left from Henry, Mbeumo gets above Creswell and heads inches wide of the post. Should he have done better there? Brentford have started really well here.

14:06 , Giuseppe Muro

2 mins: So close from Mbeumo!

Brentford almost go ahead inside two minutes. West Ham fail to clear a corner and Mbeumo grazes the top of the crossbar with his left foot. Fabianski was well beaten there. That’s a let off for West Ham.

Kick-off!

14:02 , Giuseppe Muro

We’re underway the London Stadium!

14:02 , Giuseppe Muro

There’s a period of applause for Roger Hunt, England’s 1966 World Cup winner who passed away this week.

13:59 , Giuseppe Muro

Here comes the two teams. Can West Ham go into the international break on the high or will Brentford continue their impressive start to the season?

13:56 , George Flood

We’re hearing it’s a thigh issue for German midfielder Janelt.

Not the start to the afternoon that Brentford and Thomas Frank would have hoped for.

Late Brentford change

13:50 , George Flood

News of a late change from Brentford.

Vitaly Janelt has had to be withdrawn injured after the warm-up and is replaced by Frank Onyeka.

Jorgensen and Baptiste in for Brentford

13:19 , George Flood

Brentford, meanwhile, make two changes from the side that drew 3-3 with Liverpool.

Mathias Jorgensen and Shandon Baptiste are both in, with Frank Onyeka dropping to the bench and Kristoffer Ajer missing out on the matchday squad entirely.

Coufal starts for West Ham

13:16 , George Flood

The good news for West Ham is that Vladimir Coufal is fit to start after that knock that forced him to miss the win over Rapid Vienna.

That means the hosts are unchanged from the victory at Leeds, with the likes of Lukasz Fabianski, Kurt Zouma, Angelo Ogbonna, Tomas Soucek, Jarrod Bowen and Pablo Fornals all returning to the starting XI after Moyes made sweeping changes in the Europa League.

West Ham vs Brentford teams

West Ham: Fabianski, Coufal, Zouma, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Soucek, Rice, Bowen, Fornals, Benrahma, Antonio

Moyes: West Ham didn’t chase Toney in summer

12:50 , George Flood

Indeed, there were whispers of West Ham interest in Toney during the summer as they tried and failed to find competition and support for Antonio, but Moyes insists such speculation was wide of the mark.

“We scouted him a lot at Peterborough, I've got to say," said Moyes.

"Sometimes you find something, sometimes you don't. He was certainly one in the 'do we, don't we' category when he was at Peterborough.

"Any talk about we were going to do something in the summer, that was wrong.

"He's someone who looks very hungry to prove himself in the Premier League - when you've got that hunger and determination it's a big ingredient.

"It will be a tough game for our centre-halves but it will be a tough game for Brentford as well."

Frank backs Toney for England call-up

12:41 , George Flood

Leading Brentford’s attack is the equally excellent Ivan Toney, whom Gareth Southgate confirmed this week that he is considering for an England call-up.

Thomas Frank has backed his leading man to represent the Three Lions by the end of this season, saying: “If Ivan continues to perform as he’s done so far I think he definitely will be.

“I think he is already looking at him, Gareth, and I would expect that. Gareth has done a fantastic job as the England manager and he’s a very detailed man so I’m convinced that he’s looking at Ivan.

“Then it’s a balance between who’s already in the squad, different types and all that. But Ivan’s performances, if he continues like this, will be in the run for that position in the squad.”

Moyes challenges Antonio to hit 20-goal mark

12:30 , George Flood

As always, Michail Antonio has been central to West Ham’s success so far this term and he’s now been challenged to hit the 20-goal mark by manager David Moyes.

No Hammers player has achieved that milestone in a single campaign since Tony Cottee back in 1986/87.

Paolo Di Canio hit 19 during the 1999/00 Premier League campaign.

“It's really important that we do get a striker who contributes those figures if we can because your goals will definitely get us up nearer the top," said Moyes.

"Mic's winning goal in the 90th minute the other day was magic for us and you need a centre-forward (capable of that).

"You see (Cristiano) Ronaldo do it for Manchester United and what it can do to your football club and to your team, how it lifts us, it gave us an incredible lift coming away from Leeds with three points.

"I think it's a challenge for Mic to get 20 goals, I think he should be putting it down (as a target), it's something that he should be attempting to get to.

"It's certainly not beyond him. I think the challenge to Mic would be to sit down and say look, 'can you get to that?'.

"He got 10 last year and I think the first challenge would be to say, 'come on, you've got to get more than 10 right away', that would be the first thing, not to look too far ahead, let's try and get 10 as quickly as you can and then let's see what you can do after that."

Standard Sport prediction

12:16 , George Flood

West Ham have been superb so far this season and go into the game as favourites despite Brentford already having shown their ability to mix it with the best.

However, you wonder if their Thursday night escapades may prove something of a leveller, with the Bees having had a full week off since drawing with Liverpool.

West Ham 1-1 Brentford

Brentford team news: Pinnock available

12:15 , George Flood

Brentford, meanwhile, have no known new injury issues to contend with for today’s short trip to Stratford.

Defender Ethan Pinnock is available after he recovered from the minor hip injury which forced him off after scoring against Liverpool.

Josh Dasilva and Mads Sorensen are still long-term absentees, however.

West Ham team news: Coufal could return

12:10 , George Flood

Vladimir Coufal could return for West Ham this afternoon after missing Thursday’s Europa League win over Rapid Vienna with a knock.

However, Ryan Fredericks is likely to miss out again as he recovers from a groin injury suffered in the Carabao Cup.

If neither are ready to play, then Ben Johnson is poised to slot in at right-back again, as he did against the Austrians.

David Moyes made seven changes to his starting XI to face Vienna and should reverse most of those here, with the likes of Lukasz Fabianski, Kurt Zouma, Tomas Soucek and Jarrod Bowen all returning.

West Ham predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Fabianski; Johnson, Ogbonna, Zouma, Cresswell; Rice, Soucek; Bowen, Benrahma, Fornals; Antonio
