Frank Lampard’s side have shown serious improvements in recent weeks, having now kept a clean sheet in their last five successive matches, and can move into the top four with a victory.
It’s been a different story for Sheffield United so far, though, with Chris Wilder’s side taking just one point from their opening seven games. Furthermore, the Blades have only scored three goals in total and desperately need a result to kickstart their season. Follow all the action below live:

Crystal Palace 4-1 Leeds United
Chelsea 4-1 Sheffield United
West Ham United 1-0 Fulham
West Ham’s Declan Rice: "I don't think that was our best game. But we'll be happy with the three points. Look at his all-round performance, he was top class, Ademola Lookman shouldn't be too down on himself.”
Make that 17…
For the neutral, that was an exhilarating end. But Scott Parker will be furious. Not only did his side concede an avoidable goal, but they squandered the chance to level with seconds remaining.
They stay in 17th, while West Ham climb to 11th.
And that’s it! West Ham win, despite conceding a late penalty. Lookman looks devastated, but it’s a truly awful spot kick. That means Soucek’s injury-time goal is enough for the home side.
Lookman misses! It’s an awful penalty, an attempted panenka which Fabianski saves easily.
West Ham’s players are crowding the referee, complaining about the decision. Diop gets booked for protesting too vigorously.
Penalty for Fulham! The referee watches the footage and deems Benrahma’s challenge to be a foul. Lookman will take it.
This is could be a really dramatic ending. The referee will check the monitor.
Cairney goes to ground in the box after a challenge from Benrahma. There are huge appeals from Fulham. VAR will be checked…
