Relive West Ham United's dramatic 3-2 victory over Manchester United as the hosts come from behind to win in the final match at the Boleyn Ground.

West Ham United brought the curtain down on their 112-year stay at the Boleyn Ground with a dramatic 3-2 victory over Manchester United this evening.

The hosts took the lead through Diafra Sakho after just 10 minutes in front of a raucous home crowd, but two second-half goals from Anthony Martial saw the Red Devils turn the game on its head.

They were in the lead for only four minutes before Michail Antonio levelled things up, though, and Winston Reid then wrote his name into West Ham folklore with the final goal at the stadium to hand his side a late victory.

Find out how all of the action unfolded on a memorable occasion courtesy of Sports Mole's live minute-by-minute coverage below.

6.45pmGood evening! Thank you very much for joining Sports Mole for tonight's special occasion as West Ham bid farewell to the famous Boleyn Ground with their final competitive fixture at the stadium. Manchester United are the visitors, and aside from the poignancy off the field there is still plenty to be resolved with these two clubs off it as both go chasing qualification for Europe. Before we get into all that, though, let's take a look at the team news...

6.47pmWEST HAM STARTING XI: Randolph; Antonio, Reid, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Noble, Kouyate, Sakho, Lanzini, Payet; Carroll

6.47pmWEST HAM SUBS: Spiegel, Tomkins, Valenciua, Obiang, Collins, Moses, Emenike

6.49pmMAN UTD STARTING XI: De Gea; Valencia, Smalling, Blind, Rojo; Herrera, Schneiderlin, Rooney, Mata, Rashford; Martial

6.49pmMAN UTD SUBS: Romero, Borthwick-Jackson, Jones, Carrick, Lingard, Januzaj, Memphis

6.51pmWhat can we make of those two teams, then? Well, West Ham only had one injury absentee for this historic match with goalkeeper Adrian still sidelined by a calf injury, so Darren Randolph continues between the sticks for the hosts this evening. There is only one change overall to the side that was beaten convincingly by Swansea City here just a few days ago, with Diafra Sakho coming in to replace Victor Moses.

6.53pmThat means an unchanged back four for the Hammers, including Michail Antonio once again playing at right-back. He arrived at the club as a winger, but he has often filled in at full-back this season and has put in the odd good performance, particularly at home. Reid has had another good season for the club this year and partners Ogbonna at the back once again, while Aaron Cresswell will now have two more games to sneak himself into Roy Hodgson's Euro 2016 thinking after the England boss postponed his squad announcement. The left-back is a long shot to make the squad, though.

6.55pmIf West Ham fans were writing the script for this game, no doubt the ending would have stalwart Mark Noble scoring the winner in the dying minute. He has been a great servant to the club and the end of the Upton Park era will probably mean more to him than any of his teammates, although I'm sure they all would have been made well aware of the ground's history this week. Kouyate will sit alongside Noble, while further forward Lanzini is handed another start next to Sakho.

6.57pmThere is no doubt who has been West Ham's star of the season, though. Dimitri Payet has enjoyed a magnificent debut campaign in the Premier League and has arguably been the main reason that West Ham as a club have enjoyed such a good season too. But for an injury to Payet around the midway point of the season, the Hammers could well be right up there challenge for the top four, while the same could possibly apply to Andy Carroll, who is in decent goalscoring form coming into tonight's match.

6.59pmThe big news for Manchester United is that Anthony Martial starts having overcome the hamstring injury he suffered in the build-up to the weekend clash with Norwich, which forced him to miss that game. He was expected to miss this match too, but he is there in the starting lineup and the official teamsheet from United suggests that he might play as the central striker. Marcus Rashford is also included, though, so the most likely scenario looks like being Martial on the left again.

7.01pmThe emergence of Rashford has been one of the main positives for Manchester United this season, and the youngster once again starts tonight despite Rooney and Martial both being fit. He was rested against Norwich, and the reaction to that highlighted his importance to the team already. His inclusion is one of four personnel changes made by Louis van Gaal for tonight's match, although it looks like there will also be a few positional switches.

7.03pmJuan Mata, who scored the only goal of the game at Carrow Road could move a little bit further forward in what looks like a 4-2-3-1 formation, which is a slight alteration to what they played against Norwich. Rooney led the line in that game, but the skipper will drop back into more of a number 10 role today. He has plenty of history at the Boleyn Ground himself having made his England debut here, scored a hat-trick here and also found the net from the halfway line a few years ago. Rooney has scored more Premier League goals than any other visiting player at this stadium (7), and has 11 in 15 top-flight appearances against West Ham overall.

7.05pmIt is at the back where United have been the most impressive this season, though, and Van Gaal has made one change to his defensive unit this evening. Daley Blind, who was rested against Norwich, comes back into the side and, with Darmian out with an ankle injury, Rojo moves over to left-back. Arguably United's player of the season has been David de Gea once again, with the keeper having won his side a number of points and perhaps kept them in the running for Champions League football this season.

7.07pmThe Hammers will do well to get past the Spaniard tonight, then, but there is little doubt that they will receive huge support in their attempts to do so on this emotional night. Slaven Bilic will be keen to ensure that the players don't get too carried away with the occasion, but it is an historic night for the club. The Boleyn Ground has been their home since 1904 and, while the future looks bright heading into next season at the Olympic Stadium, it will still be tough for them to say goodbye for their ground of 112 years.

7.09pmThis is their 384th Premier League match at the Boleyn Ground, and they could surpass one last landmark on this hallowed turf with a win here tonight. They have picked up 598 points from the previous 383 Premier League games here, so victory would take them over the 600-point mark. Their overall record in this competition here at Upton Park stands at 167 wins, 97 draws and 119 defeats.

7.11pmThose are all in the past, though, and West Ham will be more concerned about winning tonight for their future. They have already been boosted by the news that they have sold out their 50,000 season tickets at the Olympic Stadium, ending any concerns that they may struggle to fill the ground, while co-chairman David Sullivan's revelation that they have put in a £24m bid for a French-based player and are planning a £25m bid for a player in England will further excite fans. Attracting those big-money signings will be a lot easier with European football, though, and West Ham need a win tonight to keep that in their hands.

7.13pmVictory would take West Ham back above Southampton in sixth in the table, which would guarantee a Europa League spot next season, but any failure to win would leave things in Southampton's hands courtesy of the Saints' superior goal difference. Seventh place could still be enough to qualify for Europe, but it isn't a definite spot yet and the Hammers will not want to rely on anyone else. They could even still finish as high as fifth in the table should they win their last two games and Manchester United lose their last two.

7.15pmThey were still in the Champions League hunt until Saturday, when they fell to a shock 4-1 defeat here at the hands of Swansea City. It was their heaviest home defeat since November 2013 in the league, and they will be glad that they have a chance to atone for that performance and result tonight. The stadium didn't deserve to go out and that note, and nor did West Ham's season at home. That loss to the Swans was their first in front of their own fans in the league since August, ending a 15-match unbeaten run.

7.17pmThe Hammers' form has been fairly mixed in recent weeks, with only two wins from their last nine outings in all competitions, but also only two defeats in that time. They are a tough team to beat, with only the top two having lost fewer games than West Ham this season, and in the Premier League that defeat to Swansea was their first since the opening week of February - a run of 11 games in which they also won five and drew five.

7.19pmBREAKING NEWS: It turns out that the Boleyn Ground will hang around for just a little while longer! Kickoff for tonight's match has been delayed until 8.30pm due to issues travelling to the ground for both teams. Manchester United have only arrived recently, around an hour late.

7.21pmThe latest reports are suggesting that Man United's bus could not get into the ground because they were being hemmed in by West Ham fans. There are also reports of missiles being thrown at the bus, so the home fans are certainly looking to create an intimidating atmosphere for the final game here.

7.24pmAnyway, back to our now extended build-up, and although Manchester United have not been the highest scorers this season, they may be confident of breaching the West Ham defence this evening. The hosts have kept just one clean sheets in their last eight Premier League games, while their defensive record is comfortably the worst in the top seven. Things are better at the other end of the field, where only three teams have scored more, but it is at the back where West Ham's main problems have come this term.

7.27pmWhile this is West Ham's final match at Upton Park, they do still have one remaining game this season and the importance of it could ride on tonight's result too. They take on Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday knowing that victory, coupled with any slip-up from Southampton, would see them finish sixth even if they lose today. Once again, though, they will want to keep things in their own hands and the only way to do that is to pick up all three points this evening.

7.30pmWest Ham co-chairman David Sullivan has said that he is hugely disappointed with the decision to push the kickoff back to 8.30pm this evening. He is worried that many fans will now not be able to stay for the post-match show due to the later finishing time, and believes that the officials still should have stuck to the 7.45pm kickoff time. It's not clear whether he is aware of the reports that the delay was actually down to the West Ham fans attacking the Manchester United bus.

7.33pmThe stats suggest that Manchester United could have the upper hand tonight, with the visitors having averaged more points per game in Tuesday fixtures than any other side in Premier League history, picking up over two per match. West Ham, in contrast, have averaged just 0.93 points per game in Tuesday Premier League games, with only six wins from 29 matches played on this day. They have also drawn nine and lost 14 of those outings.

7.36pmIt is fair to say that the difference in quality between these two sides is smaller now than at any other point in the Premier League era, though, with Manchester United no longer one of the Premier League elite having failed to seriously challenge from the title since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club. It has been another disappointing campaign for them this time around, although it could still have a successful ending if the Red Devils finish with three wins.

7.39pmShould that happen then United would finish in the top four, which is something that has looked unlikely at many times this season. However, Man City's 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Sunday afternoon leaves things firmly in United's hands. A victory tonight would take them into those Champions League positions, with just two points separating them from their local rivals, which of course means that another win on the final day would clinch a return to Europe's premier club competition.

7.42pmAs far as the Premier League is concerned, tonight's game looks to be their biggest test remaining. They welcome Bournemouth to Old Trafford on the final day and that is a game that they would expect to win with Bournemouth already safe and sound in their debut season in the top flight. United have been impressive at home this season too, so their hopes of finishing in the top four could live and die tonight. It is a huge match for both clubs, and for different reasons too.

7.45pmThey also have an FA Cup final to look forward to this season, which is a huge chance for United to pick up their first trophy of the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era. Crystal Palace stand in their way at Wembley on May 21 as United look to win the famous old competition for the first time since 2004, which is far too long for a club of their stature. It could be, then, that this tumultuous season which has seen Van Gaal reportedly on the sack on numerous occasions, could end with a top-four finish and a trophy.

7.48pmThat would, of course, delight the Manchester United fans, but the jury remains out on Louis van Gaal and even if he rescues the season with a strong end to the campaign then I'm sure there will be many who remain unconvinced. Jose Mourinho is the man who has been repeatedly linked with the Old Trafford post, and the former Chelsea boss is surely still on the wishlist of many fans despite Van Gaal's recovery job in the closing weeks of the season.

7.51pmThings certainly have got better for United over that time, and they come into tonight's match having won five and lost none of their last six outings in all competitions. It is their longest unbeaten run so far in 2016, and the only side to avoid defeat in that time were champions Leicester. Second-placed Tottenham were the last team to beat United - a game they were also late to arrived for incidentally - but that is United's only loss in their last 11 outings.

7.54pmIn the Premier League, those top two of Leicester and Tottenham are the only sides to avoid defeat against Manchester United in their last seven games. They have kept clean sheets in each of their five wins in that time, although in the story of their season goals haven't exactly been free-flowing. Four of those five victories have been by a 1-0 scoreline, while the other was a 2-0 win.

7.57pmThose five clean sheets have contributed to a league-high tally of 18 for the season from United, and it is their defensive record that has kept them in the race for the top four. Only Tottenham Hotspur have conceded fewer than United this season, and they have needed to be so tight at the back as things have been nowhere near good enough at the other end of the field. The Red Devils have scored just 44 goals from their 36 league games this term, which is 11 fewer than the next lowest scorers in the top nine.

8pmWhile this season still has the potential to end on a high, defeat in the final two games of the league season, coupled with a cup final loss, would turn it into a disastrous campaign for the club. A loss tonight and defeat to Bournemouth on the final day, could see them finish as low as eighth if other results go against them this season, although in that scenario they would still have the chance to qualify for Europe should they win the FA Cup. An eighth-place finish and defeat in the cup final, though, would see them miss out on Europe altogether.

8.03pmAt the other end of the spectrum, though, United could still finish as high as third this season, although for that to happen they would need Arsenal to lose at home against Aston Villa on the final day of the season. That is highly unlikely, but the fourth-place finish is now solely in their hands and Man City's draw with the Gunners on Sunday will have been a huge boost to the United players ahead of this match.

8.06pmIn addition to qualifying for the Champions League, United will have another goal over the closing two games of this season. They still need two points to surpass their lowest-ever Premier League points tally of 64, which was set during David Moyes's ill-fated reign. That is perhaps the statistic that many United fans will point to when arguing that Van Gaal still should leave the club in the summer even if he qualifies for the Champions League and wins the FA Cup, with those achievements papering over the cracks somewhat.

8.09pmThe United players are finally out and warming up on the pitch having appealed for their usual amount of time to prepare for the game following their late arrival at the ground. We are now just over 20 minutes from the delayed kickoff, and both sides are going through their final preparations before the game.

8.12pmOne of the concerns for United today is that their away form this season has not been too impressive, with the vast majority of their points coming at Old Trafford. They have only won three of their last 11 away outings in the Premier League, with all of those wins being by a solitary goal to nil. They have drawn three and lost five in that time, although a victory tonight would see them pick up back-to-back away wins in the top flight for the first time since March 2015.

8.15pmTheir last away victory came just a few days ago, though, as United moved within one point of Man City by beating Norwich City at Carrow Road. Juan Mata got the only goal of the game with just under 20 minutes remaining as Norwich's survival hopes took a major blow in Saturday's early kickoff. It wasn't the most convincing performance from United, but it is all about the results for them in these closing stages of the season.

8.18pmManchester United manager Louis van Gaal has been speaking before the game and he has admitted that the pre-match delay and antics of the fans will have an effect on both sets of players. There have been pictures and videos circulating of Manchester United's team bus being smashed up by West Ham fans on its way to the stadium, and it is highly likely that the Hammers could get punished for that. It has rather soured what was meant to be a special occasions in truth.

8.20pmPREDICTION: Right, we are finally 10 minutes from kickoff, which means that it is time for me to make a prediction! The atmosphere both inside and outside the stadium is sure to have an impact on the game, but both sides will know that the match itself is almost as big as the occasion. Victory would do wonders for both clubs' European hopes, but I can see this one finishing all square. I'm going for 2-2!

8.22pmManchester United have dominated this fixture in recent years, avoiding defeat in their last 14 Premier League meetings with the Hammers. That run includes 11 victories for United since December 2007, when West Ham last beat the Red Devils in the top flight. Ending that run would be a perfect way to say goodbye to the Boleyn Ground tonight.

8.24pmHowever, West Ham have failed to even score in eight of their last 13 league meetings with Manchester United, so they will need to vastly improve on their recent record if they are to come away with a victory this evening. They drew a blank in the reverse fixture too, with that match at Old Trafford ending in a goalless draw back in December.

8.26pmThis will be the fourth meeting between these two sides this season, and Manchester United were actually visitors here less than a month ago. That match came in an FA Cup quarter-final replay, and it was a disappointing performance from the hosts on that occasion. Rashford and Fellaini both scored to put United two up, although the visitors did need some big saves from De Gea to hold off a Hammers fightback after Tomkins had halved the deficit.

8.28pmThe players come out to the final ever pre-match anthem of 'I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles' at the Boleyn Ground. The fans are in fine voice for this special occasion.

1 minKICKOFF: Here we go then! West Ham kick off for the final time ever at the Boleyn Ground amid a raucous atmosphere in the capital.

2 minFrantic start to this match as West Ham come out clearly very fired up. They win an early free kick and Reid goes down in the area after Carroll's knockdown, but Mike Dean is right not to entertain the fans' calls for a penalty. The ball eventually arrives to Lanzini, who sends an acrobatic volley well off target.

4 minThere is an incredible atmosphere inside the stadium tonight. I haven't heard the Boleyn Ground quite this noisy before! It would only be natural for the visitors to feel a little intimidated after their pre-match experiences too.

6 minIt has been a scrappy start to this game, with neither side able to really keep hold of the ball for any serious length of time. That is no doubt something to do with the levels of excitement pouring down from the stands.

8 minUnited will want to just get their foot on the ball now and slow play down a little in an attempt to quieten the crowd down. It could be futile considering just how loud Upton Park is right now, though.

10 minGOAL! West Ham 1-0 Manchester United (Diafra Sakho)

10 minWell that certainly isn't going to help with the noise! What a start for West Ham as they take the lead inside 10 minutes through Diafra Sakho! Cresswell threads a good pass down the left channel for Lanzini, who in turn slides a low ball into the box. Sakho has peeled away from his way and sidefoots one towards goal that flicks of Blind and ends up in the bottom corner!

12 minIf that proves to be the winner tonight, then Sakho can enjoy a special place in West Ham history. The way this game has started, though, I wouldn't expect it to peter out and end in a 1-0 home win!

14 minSHOT! The roof would have come off the place had this gone in! Payet floats a free kick back to Noble, who tries a first-time 25-yard volley towards goal. It hits a United defender and drops back to Ogbonna, who reacts well to fire a volley of his own off target.

16 minThat goal means that West Ham have scored in 18 of their 19 home Premier League fixtures this season - the first time they have managed that in the competition. Not a bad way to say goodbye!

18 minForgive me for repeating myself, but the atmosphere inside the stadium is deafening here. Every action from the hosts is being cheered to the rafters, and the players are responding to that. Whether they can keep that up for the full 90 minutes remains to be seen, but they are very much on top right now.

19 minCHANCE! A chance for the home side to double their advantage as a cross from the right is flicked on to Carroll, who chests it down before teeing up Payet on the edge of the box. The midfielder drills it towards goal, but it is too close to De Gea and the United keeper makes the save.

20 minCHANCE! Another chance for West Ham, and this one is an absolute sitter! Blind is sitting so much deeper than the rest of the defensive line, and that allows Carroll to race clean through on goal. He only has De Gea to beat, but once again the keeper comes to United's rescue. Dreadful from Blind, though, and Carroll really should have scored.

21 minDISALLOWED GOAL! West Ham have the ball in the back of the net again, but it is disallowed and a corner is given instead. Noble's hoisted cross into the box hit a defender and went out of play before curling back in, where Antonio bundled it home from close range.

23 minIt has been all West Ham in this match so far, with the visitors struggling to get going at all yet. It has been one-way traffic, with Manchester United failing to come to terms with the hostile atmosphere.

25 minOn the evidence of the opening 25 minutes here, it won't be long before they get a second either...

27 minCLOSE! Another shot comes in from West Ham as Lanzini picks the ball up around 25 yards from goal and quickly releases an effort. It skims along the floor, but ends up a yard or two past the post.

29 minIt has been better from the visitors in the last five minutes or so. They are beginning to see a bit more of the ball and are managing to get out of their own half with it too, which was not the case in the opening 25 minutes. They appear to have finally settled.

30 minEven Randolph is getting involved in the celebratory atmosphere, albeit in rather risky fashion. He is almost close down by Rashford, but pulls out a piece of skill to beat the youngster.

32 minCHANCE! Yet another chance for West Ham as Martial is caught in possession by Noble, who has Carroll and Payet in support. He chooses Payet, who cuts inside but then gets his finish all wrong, blazing it high and wide of the target.

34 minThat stadium is one their feet as one to a chant of 'Stand up for the Boleyn Ground'. They are certainly giving it a fitting send-off so far, although they could really do with a second goal.

34 minCHANCE! And here they are given their first warning shot of why a second goal will be so useful. Rooney swings a good cross into the middle that Rashford attacks, and the youngster looks set to get his head to it having got in front of his man. However, he ducks under the ball and it hits the defender and goes behind for a corner.

36 minDespite all of West Ham's chances so far, it is Sakho's goal that remains the only difference in this Boleyn Ground swansong. Here he is with Noble celebrating that goal.

38 minManchester United are certainly in this match a lot more now than they were for the first quarter of the game. They have only created that one chance, but considering how many sights of goal West Ham have had, they will be pretty happy with only a one-goal deficit at this stage.

40 minHere is some footage from inside the Manchester United coach while it was being attacked by the West Ham fans.

42 minMan United may as well have still been on the coach the way they have played for the majority of this first half. They have been comfortably second best in this game and are certainly not playing like a team with fourth place at stake.

43 minCHANCES! Antonio picks the ball up around 25 yards from goal and is urged to shoot, but his shot takes a deflection on its way behind. From the resulting corner Sakho rises almost unchallenged, but he steers his header off target when he should do better.

45 minThere will be just one added minute at the end of this frantic first half.

45+1 minHALF TIME: West Ham United 1-0 Manchester United

9.24pmA frantic first half comes to an end at the Boleyn Ground for the final time here, and the Hammers have the lead too. They have been utterly dominant in the match so far, and the only negative from the hosts' point of view is that they are not more than one goal ahead. They could and should have put this game out of United's reach in that opening 45 minutes.

9.26pmThat only goal of the game so far came after just 10 minutes when Cresswell slid a pass down the left channel for Lanzini, who in turn pulled a low cross back into the middle. Sakho had peeled away into space and swept his finish into the bottom corner, although he was given a helping hand by a deflection off Blind.

9.28pmWest Ham's best chance to add to that lead fell to Andy Carroll, and it was a sitter for the England hopeful. Blind found himself a good five yards at least deeper than the rest of the defence, and that played Carroll onside as he raced clean through on goal. He only had De Gea to beat, but not for the first time this season the Spanish keeper came to his side's rescue by thwarting the striker.

9.30pmDimitri Payet has also squandered a good chance for the hosts having been found by Noble and cut inside his man, only to get his shot all wrong, firing his finish high and wide of the target. An earlier chance for the midfielder saw him fire a tame strike straight at the keeper, while Lanzini, Sakho and Ogbonna have also had efforts on goal that came to nothing. Slaven Bilic will be kicking himself that his side aren't two or three up at the break.

9.32pmAntonio has also had the ball in the back of the net, although that was disallowed as a result of the ball going out of play before arriving to the full-back. As for United, their only hint of a chance came when Rooney swung a cross in towards Rashford, although the striker didn't even connect with the ball. The visitors have not been in the game at all, and need a vast improvement in the second half if they are to keep the top four in their own hands.

46 minKICKOFF: Manchester United get us back underway for the final 45 minutes of action at the Boleyn Ground, and the visitors have made a change as West Ham product Michael Carrick replaces Schneiderlin.

48 minWest Ham have once again come out for this second half with a good amount of urgency as the home fans continue to roar them on. The visitors need to match that intensity, which they certainly didn't do in the first half.

50 minSHOT! Good chasing from West Ham as they refuse to give up on what looks like a lost cause right in the corner. Blind wins the ball, but his clearance is skewed into a dangerous area. It eventually falls to Payet, who attempts an ambitious volley that flies wide.

51 minGOAL! West Ham 1-1 Manchester United (Anthony Martial)

51 minThe visitors level things up here, and West Ham will be kicking themselves for those missed chances now! It is Martial who gets the goal, but it was a simple finish for the youngster. A long kick from De Gea found Rashford, who in turn slid a pass in for the overlapping Mata. His low cross into the box is touched by Randolph, but that only takes it into the path of Martial at the back post.

53 minThe fans are looking to ensure that that equaliser doesn't dampen the atmosphere inside the stadium, but there is no doubt that the visitors have improved so far in this second half.

55 minCLOSE! The hosts almost regain their lead through Payet, who picks up a loose ball on the edge of the box before putting a shot just wide. Carroll battled really well to set up the chance, but Payet's low curling strike rippled the side-netting.

56 minCHANCE! Huge chance for West Ham again! Payet swings a cross into the middle and the United defence has gone completely AWOL to leave Sakho unmarked. It is an awkward one for the striker as he is not sure whether to go with his head or feet, and in the end he opts for the former, sending his effort off target.

58 minYELLOW CARD! The first card of the afternoon is shown to Martial for a mistimed challenge on Kouyate.

60 minCarroll appeals for a penalty after attacking a corner but being pulled back by Smalling. It is one of those that has been given on a couple of occasions this season and could have been given again, but they are so common in matches that it would set a dangerous precedent in an atmosphere like this.

62 minIt's been a very encouraging debut season in English football for the youngster...

63 minCarroll always seems to get on the end of crosses into the box in one way or another. This time Payet swings one towards the back post and the striker hooks it back in with his foot, only for United to then clear the danger.

65 minAlmost a chance for United as the visitors put together their best spell of passing of the match. Mata slides a clever reverse pass for Rashford, whose backheel deflects off Antonio and trickles right across the face of goal before Cresswell sees it out at the back post.

67 minOFF THE LINE! Again Carroll is the danger from the corner, and United suicidally leave him unmarked. Payet picks him out and Carroll plants a firm header towards the corner from a long way out, but Martial is in the right place to clear it off the line.

69 minYELLOW CARD! Carroll is really fired up right now, and he chases Blind all the way before catching him late with a sliding challenge. No complaints with the card.

70 minYELLOW CARD! He is swiftly followed into the book by Valencia for a foul which Dean played advantage for. Another foul a few seconds later give West Ham a free kick in Payet range...

71 minSHOT! It is not one of his best, though, as Payet's free kick fails to come close to threatening De Gea's goal.

72 minGOAL! West Ham 1-2 Manchester United (Anthony Martial)

72 minOh Manchester United have turned this around and are now threatening to spoil the party! It is Martial again, although Darren Randolph did not cover himself in glory. Rooney and Rashford did well to launch the counter and give the ball to the Frenchman, who beat Reid for pace all ends up down the left flank. He looks up for Rashford in the middle and appears to be trying to cross the ball, but Randolph gambles and the sliced ball ends up going into the back of the net!

74 minAs things stand, then, Manchester United will climb up to fourth in the Premier League table. As far as West Ham are concerned, though, they will be devastated that they have fallen behind having dominated in the first half.

75 minYELLOW CARD! Herrera goes into the book for a late challenge on Noble.

76 minGOAL! West Ham 2-2 Manchester United (Michail Antonio)

76 minWest Ham are level again! Payet has a free kick and his initial efforts smacks straight into the wall. It comes back to him, though, and he floats a beauty of a pass over the defence on his second attempt. Antonio races on to it and just glances a fine header past De Gea to send Upton Park wild again!

78 minOdds on a Mark Noble winner in the last minute? I wouldn't bet against it right now! This has been a fitting finale for this stadium and it is sure to be an action-packed final 12 minutes.

80 minWest Ham have another free kick, and Payet is standing over it once again...

81 minGOAL! West Ham 3-2 Manchester United (Winston Reid)

81 minIncredible scenes at Upton Park as West Ham regain the lead! Payet swings another fine ball into the box with the free kick and Reid is there to flick it goalwards. De Gea almost makes a fine save and having got his hand to it he may be disappointed not to have kept it out, but it ends up in the back of the net and the Boleyn Ground erupts once again.

83 minMAN UTD SUB: The visitors make their second change of the evening as Jesse Lingard comes on for Herrera.

84 minWEST HAM SUB: The home side respond with a change of their own as Lanzini is replaced by Pedro Obiang.

85 minWEST HAM SUB: That is swiftly followed by another change from Bilic, with Sakho being replaced by James Tomkins.

87 minMAN UTD SUB: The visitors make their third and final change as Adnan Januzaj replaces Valencia.

89 minWe're into the last minutes at this stadium now, and it looks like being a fairytale ending for the Hammers as things stand. What a game this has been!

90+1 minWEST HAM SUB: The hosts make their final change of the evening, and it is Payet who makes way to be replaced by Enner Valencia.

90+2 minWe are now into the second of four added minutes. Four more minutes of competitive football left at Upton Park!

90+5 minFULL TIME: West Ham United 3-2 Manchester United

10.28pmPhew! What way to say farewell to this stadium! The final match at the Boleyn Ground proves to be a cracker as West Ham score twice in quick succession late on to clinch a come-from-behind 3-2 victory over Manchester United. Sakho had given the hosts an early lead, but two second-half goals from Martial turned the game on its head. However, Antonio then levelled things up with less than 15 minutes remaining, and in the final 10 Winston Reid wrote his name into Hammers folklore with the last ever goal at the stadium. A brilliant occasion, and a brilliant game.

10.30pmWell, the party will go on late into the night I'm sure, but I'm afraid that is all that we have time for here! Thank you very much for joining Sports Mole for this special occasions and this special match, which sees West Ham beat Manchester United in their final match at Upton Park. I will leave you with our must-read match report, and be sure to stick around for reaction too. From me, though, it is goodbye for now, and thanks for the memories Boleyn Ground!
