22:28 - That brings to an end Vavel Uk's live commentary of this big occasion for West Ham as they downed United by three goals to two. I have been Brandon Sayer and I hope you enjoyed my coverage of the game. Until the next time have a good night. 

22:27 - West Ham have all but confirmed their place in the Europa League next season which is fantastic for them and they were the better side throughout the game. 

22:25 - The result leaves United needing Swansea to do them a favour on Sunday by beating City or else top-four is all over. United host Bournemouth at Old Trafford so they will want to make sure they win that first. 

22:24 - What a second half that was with four goals being scored. Martial breathed life into the game for the Reds scoring two great goals. West Ham though came back and scored two goals in four minutes. The crowd were fantastic throughout and the home side finish the last ever game at the Boleyn Ground with a deserved win. 

90+4' - The referee blows the whistle to end the game. Full time score line reads West Ham 3-2 Manchester United. 

90+1 - The referee has decided to add on four minutes at the end of the second half. 

90' - West Ham substitution: Payet is replaced by Enner Valencia. 

87' - Manchester United substitution: Valencia is replaced by Adnan Januzaj. 

86' - Another free-kick from Payet finds Kouyate in the box but he put his header over the bar.

83' - Manchester United substitution: Herrera is replaced by Jesse Lingard. 

81' - Goal for West Ham! Winston Reid scores West Ham's third. Payet plays another brilliant cross into the box and the big defender powers a header past De Gea. Unbelievable from the home side to turn it around. 

77' - Goal for West Ham! Antonio scores the equaliser for West Ham. Payet played a beautiful cross into the box and Antonio hit a bullet header into the top corner of the net. The crowd are going mad and with good reason

75' - Ander Herrera receives a yellow card for a late challenge on Noble. 

73' - Goal for Manchester United! Martial does it again and scores his second goal of the game. Rooney plays a beautiful ball to Rashford who plays it to Martial and the striker scores from a tight angle. Big big goal for United that. 

71' - Payet steps up to take the free-kick but it goes over the bar. 

70' - Valencia receives a yellow card for a late challenge. West Ham have a free-kick in a dangerous area.

68' - Carroll wins the ball in the air from a corner and the ball was going into the net until Martial cleared it of the line. 

58' - Martial receives a yellow card for a trip on Kouyate. 

56' - Sakho should have scored his second goal of the game! Payet floated a free-kick into the box and striker put his header over the bar from close range. 

55' - Payet almost scores a belter from outside the box as he sees his strike hit the side netting with some of the ground celebrating. 

51' - Goal for Manchester United! Martial scores the equaliser. A long kick from De Gea finds Rashford who in turn plays a lovely ball to Mata and then then Spaniard plays a lovely ball across the box and Martial tapped the ball home. Massive for United

46' - Mike Dean blows his whistle to begin the second half. 

46' - Manchester United substitution: Morgan Schneiderlin is replaced by Michael Carrick. 

21:20 - West Ham are deservedly in front through Sakho's early strike and they should have scored more than one. United just couldn't get going all half but at least they managed to keep it down to just the one goal. A huge improvement is needed from Louis van Gaal's men in the second half in this must-win game. Stay tuned as we bring you the second half in a few minutes time.

45+1' - The half-time whistle goes. West Ham 1-0 Manchester United. 

45' - The referee has decided to add on one minute at the end of the first half. 

43' - Sakho is unmarked in the box from a corner kick but he put his header over the bar. West Ham have played really well all half. 

34' - Wayne Rooney played a lovely cross into the box and Marucs Rashford was so close to heading the ball into the net but the West Ham defence got it cleared away. Best moment so far for the away side. 

32' - What a miss from Payet! Martial was caught in possession by Mark Noble who in turn played Payet in on goal but the winger put his shot miles over the bar. Unbelievable miss that was for a player of his quality. 

27' - Lanzini is next to have a go for the home side but he puts his shot wide of the goal from outside the box. 

20' - What a chance for West Ham to make it two! Incredibly Andy Carroll is aloud clean through on goal with no one around him but De Gea comes out and makes a great save from the striker who should have scored. 

18' - Dimitri Payet has a shot from outside the box but it was straight at De Gea who makes an easy save. 

10' - Goal for West Ham! Diafra Sakho gets the opener for the hosts. Lanzini was played in on the left hand side of the box and the midfielder cut the ball back into the path of the striker who side footed it past David de Gea. The home crowd go mental inside the stadium. 

2' - A huge scramble in the Manchester United box ends with Lanzini having an overhead kick that goes over the bar. Lively start from the hosts. 

1' - The referee blows his whistle to begin the game. Game on. 

20:20 - The warm-ups are finished and now the teams are heading back to their dressing rooms to get ready. The atmosphere is amazing in the ground and it should be quite a spectacle. Stay Tuned as kick-off is only ten minutes away. 

19:18 - Kick-off at the Boleyn Ground has been delayed until 8.30PM BST! The reason for the delay is that Manchester United's team bus has only just arrived at the ground.

18:35 - Hello everyone, I am Brandon Sayer and I will be doing the live text commentary for Vavel UK this evening for the big match between West Ham and Manchester United. It is a massive game for both sides for different reasons as the race for European places heat up. Teams news is fast approaching. Stay tuned as we will bring it to you in 10 minutes time. 

We'll have confirmed team news for you at 6:45BST from the Boleyn Ground with kick-off at 7:45BST.

Manchester United predicted XI: De Gea; Valencia, Smalling, Blind, Rojo; Carrick, Schneiderlin, Rooney; Lingard, Rashford, Mata.

West Ham predicted XI: Randolph; Tomkins, Reid, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Kouyate, Noble; Moses, Lanzini, Payet; Carroll. 

van Gaal, on the other hand, has a quite a few key players missing at such a critical time. Anthony Martial pulled up in the warm-up against Norwich with a tight hamstring and is a doubt for the game against the Hammers. Matteo Darmian also suffered an injury against Norwich and will miss the game. Fellaini will serve the second of his three-match suspension after getting charged by the FA after the Leicester City game. Luke Shaw and Bastian Schweinsteiger also continue to be missing from the squad because of injury.

Slaven Bilic has only one injury to contend with going in the game with United. Adrian will miss the game with a calf injury so second choice goalkeeper Darren Randolph will take up the mantle of starting. A few players could also be dropped after a poor showing against Swansea on Saturday so it will be interesting to see what Bilic does do his team for the game. 

The game between these sides earlier in the season at Old Trafford ended 0-0 in a very disappointing match for all involved. The Reds though will have fond memories of the Boleyn Ground after winning 2-1 in the FA Cup quarter-final replay only last month. Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini got the goals that day for United while James Tomkins got one back for his side. The game between these sides in the league at the Boleyn Ground last season ended in a 1-1 draw after Daley Blind scored a late equaliser to cancel out Cheikhou Kouyate's opener.

The Hammers though have their own European aspirations and will want to give their supporters a brilliant send-off against the Reds. They will be looking to bounce back after their 4-1 drubbing by Swansea City at home on Saturday something that many people found a surprise given how good the Hammers have been at home this season. They also will want to make sure they win to keep up in the Europa League places something the team want to take to their new ground next season.

It is a decisive week for United and they should be in high spirits after defeating Norwich City 1-0 at Carrow Road on Saturday which has put them in with more than a shout for a top-four finish. Louis van Gaal has been under a huge amount of pressure over the last few months, but he could prove his doubters wrong and get his team into the top-four along with an FA Cup win. It won't be an easy task though against a team who will be motivated to defeat them in their last home game of the season. 

This match promises to be a special night at the Boleyn Ground under the lights for the final time in a midweek game with so much at stake. United come into the game knowing that a top-four finish is in their own hands after Manchester City could only manage a 2-2 draw against Arsenal on Sunday. This game is the Reds game in hand on City so they must make it count.
