All the action from Sunday's 1-0 Premiership victory against West Ham at the Lane.

Edgar Davids, Mido and Jermain Defoe were all back in the starting line-up for the clash against West Ham. That meant Danny Murphy and Robbie Keane were on the bench while Ledley King was okay after playing in Thursday night's win against Besiktas.

4mins: Early worry for West Ham as Ferdinand injures knee in collision with own player, comes back on after treatment.

7mins: CHANCE. Chimbonda played ball up right channel to Defoe, who controlled and rolled into path of Lennon cutting inside from the right. Lennon's first touch took him away from Ferdinand and he was away on goal, four defenders converged on him and had to take shot early, side-footing just wide.

15mins: Lennon skipped past Mascherano, low cross cleared by Gabbidon.

20mins: SAVE. Lennon darted between Mascherano and Konchesky, cutback found Defoe central, eight yards out, Green somehow managed to divert low shot over the bar with feet.

76mins: CLOSE. Move started with Lennon break down right, exchanged passes with Chimbonda before laying back for Huddlestone to drive at goal, fierce hit that appeared to clip Gabbidon's boot on its way wide.
