Breakdown
19:48 GMT : Match Starts
1 min : West Ham kick off the match attacking the goal to the left of the dugouts.
2 mins : Torres has the first chance of the match as he fires a 25 yard shot just wide after a delightful turn.
3 mins : The travelling Kop are in good voice. 'Rafa, Rafael' is echoing around Upton Park.
5 mins : Liverpool are in their white and black away strip tonight as they go in search of that elusive first league win of 2008.
5 mins : Finnan has won a free-kick deep in West Ham territory. Gerrard takes but the Hammers eventaully clear their lines.
7 mins : A poor clearance from Robert Green concedes possession to Kuyt, who finds Benayoun but the Israeli clips his shot from a tight angle just over.
8 mins : West Ham threaten for the first time but Cole's throughball is superly cut out by Carra.
9 mins : A good situation comes to nothing as Kuyt overhits a pass towards Torres.
10 mins : It's been a bright opening from Liverpool.
11 mins : Yossi is being booed by the fans that once adored him. Let's hope he answers them with another goal to follow up his hat-trick against Havant.
14 mins : The last few moments have been rather scrappy with the hosts enjoying possession without really doing anything with it.
16 mins : Hyypia's hopeful ball into the box nearly finds the late run of Benayoun but Green is out quicky to thwart him.
17 mins : A moment of danger for the Reds as Ljungberg's low ball into the box evades both Hyypia and Carragher. Luckily for the Reds no-one was following in at the far post.
18 mins : Torres' clever run sees him beat the offside trap but once again Green is alert to pump the ball clear.
20 mins : There's an intriguing battle on the left side as Harry Kewell goes up against fellow Aussie Lucas Neill. It's even steven so far.
22 mins : A long throw from McCartney causes chaos in the Reds defence but Boa Morte fires over from six yards out to let Liverpool off the hook.
24 mins : Nearly a quarter of the way through the match and still no sign of a goal that could go some way to ending a sequence of four straight league draws for Rafa and co.
26 mins : After a nervy start the home side are beginning to ask more and more questions of the Liverpool rearguard.
27 mins : A Noble free-kick from the left deflects off a Liverpool head and smashes against the crossbar. Another let off.
29 mins : We've not seen enough of the Reds as an attacking force in the past 15 minutes or so. Torres had looked dangerous but the service to him appears to have dried up.
31 mins : A lovely one-two between Kewell and Torres puts the Aussie in on goal but Ferdinand recovers to make a great last-ditch challenge.
35 mins : Both sides are probing for an opening but for all their effort neither keeper has been called into much action.
37 mins : Some alert defending from Benayoun deprives Bowyer of a free header at the far post.
38 mins : First Booking: Fabio Aurelio:
39 mins : Another dangerous ball into the box causes problems in the Reds defence. Set pieces have become a real cause for concern.
40 mins : Noble delivers a great ball into the area but Sami leaps highest to clear for a corner.
41 mins : A poor delivery gives the defence a breather and a sustained period of West Ham pressure comes to an end.
44 mins : The Hammers have had the better chances in what has been a first-half of limited opportunities.
45 mins : There will be a minimum of one minute added time.
20:34 GMT : Half Time Reached
20:51 GMT : Second Half Begins
46 mins : Liverpool restart the second period defending the Bobby Moore stand.
47 mins : A good start for Liverpool. Finnan's cross from the right finds Benayoun and Kuyt but the Dutchman takes too long to get his shot away and the home side clear under pressure.
49 mins : A great chance for Liverpool goes begging as Kewell fails to connect with a delicious ball on from Dirk Kuyt after the forward skipped beyond McCartney with ease.
51 mins : A long ball into the Reds defence causes further problems with Hyypia heading straight to Boa Morte but Finnan is there to snuff out the danger.
54 mins : West Ham are getting the ball into the Liverpool area at every chance they get and Aurelio is fortunate not to be punished by Ljungberg after he missed his jump defending Noble's ball in.
55 mins : It's all hands to the pump in defence as Cole's delivery is cleared by Harry Kewell.
60 mins : An hour gone and it looks like West Ham are going to reinforce their attack with Dean Ashton.
62 mins : Another foul by Aurelio gives West Ham a free-kick in a dangerous area. The Brazilian will have to be careful as he's already been booked.
63 mins : Noble's cross causes more chaos and Boa Morte drags his shot wide at the far post.
64 mins : Substitution: Dean Ashton for Lee Bowyer:
64 mins : Substitution: Matthew Etherington for Luis Boa Morte:
65 mins : A double sub for the Hammers signals their intent for the remainder of this match.
66 mins : Substitution: Lucas Leiva for Harry Kewell:
66 mins : Substitute Lucas nearly inspires the breakthrough as he gets on the end of Torres' cross but sees his effort deflect just wide.
68 mins : Both sides are pressing for the opening goal and after yet another West Ham cross creates trouble in the Liverpool area, Lucas goes close with a shot from the edge of the box after a surging run from Stevie G.
69 mins : The first period was devoid of many clear-cut chances but it's very open as we enter the latter stages.
70 mins : It looks like Ryan Babel will be coming on for LFC.
71 mins : First Booking: Fernando Torres:
72 mins : Ironic cheers from the away fans as Liverpool are awarded a rare free-kick.
73 mins : Substitution: Ryan Babel for Yossi Benayoun:
74 mins : Babel is close to making an instant impact as his low cut back finds Kuyt but some alert defending denies him of a confidence boosting goal.
75 mins : Noble's corner picks out Cole but his header is way wide of Pepe Reina's goal
76 mins : Some sily skills form Ljungberg takes him into the LFC area but Aurelio gets back to block his low strike at goal
77 mins : And from the resulting corner it should be 1-0 as Lucas Neill hammers a shot just wide of Reina's near post.
78 mins : A superb turn from Kuyt enables him to take aim from 25 yards but his effort is deflected for a corner.
78 mins : From the corner there are big shouts for handball but the ref is having none of it.
81 mins : Substitution: Jonathan Spector for Carlton Cole:
83 mins : Peter Crouch continues to warm up for Liverpool but as of yet Rafa has not given him the call.
84 mins : A slight delay in proceedings as Etherington is given some treatment.
85 mins : We are back underway now and LFC are attacking.
86 mins : Less than five minutes to go and still no goals. One positive out of a 0-0 would see Reina pick up his 50th league clean sheet for the Reds.
87 mins : Fingers crossed Pepe achieves it in record time tonight and someone pops up with a winner - but at the moment it's not looking likely.
88 mins : First Booking: Xabi Alonso:
90 mins : A late chance for the Reds. A free-kick on the left edge of the area. Let's have some magic!
90 mins : Not quite as Xabi's shot is deflected wide and the corner comes to nothing.
90 mins : There will be a minimum of three minutes added time.
90 mins : Penalty to West Ham as Ljungberg is brought down by Carra.
90 mins : GOAL! Mark Noble: Penalty
21:42 GMT : Match Over
