Result: West Ham United strike at the death to beat West Bromwich Albion

West Ham United claim a last-gasp 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion in Tuesday night's Premier League encounter at the London Stadium.

West Ham United have claimed a last-gasp 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion in Tuesday night's Premier League encounter at the London Stadium.

The first concrete chance of the game fell to the away side as Salomon Rondon got between the West Ham defenders and attempted to send a lob over Adrian, which just sailed over the crossbar.

West Ham then came close to opening the scoring midway through the first half through Manuel Lanzini, whose half-volleyed effort was palmed away by Ben Foster.

The Baggies went on to break the deadlock on the half-hour mark through James McClean, who marauded into the area past Winston Reid before firing a shot which took a deflection off Pedro Obiang and looped into the back of the net.

However, the Hammers drew level on 59 minutes when Aaron Cresswell's whipped cross from the left was headed home by Andy Carroll, who rose high above Jonny Evans and Kieran Gibbs to get his first goal since April 1.

Less than 10 minutes later Marko Arnautovic nearly grabbed a second, the Austrian linking well with Lanzini and getting into a promising position, only for Foster to keep out the ensuing effort.

Just as it seemed like the game would finish all square, the Hammers struck a winner in the fourth minute of injury time, Arnautovic cutting the ball back for Carroll to slam home from a tight angle.

West Ham United (3-4-2-1): Adrian; Reid, Ogbonna, Cresswell (Rice 76'); Zabaleta, Masuaku (Chicharito 73'), Obiang (Noble 46'), Kouyate; Lanzini, Arnautovic; Carroll

West Bromwich Albion (4-4-2): Foster; Dawson, Hegazi, Evans, Gibbs; Livermore (Robson-Kanu 64'), Yacob (Barry 83'), Krychowiak, McClean; Rodriguez (Burke 71'), Rondon
