Winston Reid did the damage with the winner, after Anthony Martial's double had seemingly put United on course for the three points. United's top four ambitions are all but over, while West Ham can still finish fifth and reach the Europa League on the final day. That fourth spot now looks likely to go to Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

Dimitri Payet fails from another free-kick chance but he does the next best thing, crossing the rebound in for for Antonio, who thunders a header beyond De Gea.

United complete the turnaround with a hand of West Ham goalkeeper Darren Randolph. Rooney and Rashford combine to feed Martial, who storms past Reid and as Randolph anticipates the cross, the Frenchman finds the far corner from a tight angle.

Yellow card for Valencia and now a free-kick for West Ham, as advantage was played, for Dimitri Payet to stew over. David de Gea was beaten by one in the FA Cup tie earlier in the season remember. The Frenchman curls over the bar. What an anticlimax.

West Ham's beat chance continues to come via the aerial route and Andy Carroll almost finds the corner with a free header, but it is Martial who heads the ball off the line.

Another half chance for United. Mata plays in Rashford, whose deflected back heel runs across the face of goal and though Herrera gets across, the ball runs to safety from a West Ham point of view.

Game has turned a bit scrappy in this second half, with neither side able to capture their free-flowing best. West Ham doing much of the pushing at this stage. Carroll pulls back Noble's crossfield pass but Blind clears.

Yellow card and maybe an injury for Anthony Martial as he takes down Kouyate as he turned away from a loose pass. The Frenchman hobbles on though.

Another chance goes begging for West Ham. Payet floats a free-kick in and Sakho stoops to head unmarked but can't find the target from seven yards. Big chance, squandered.

Andy Carroll causing problems in the United box against Chris Smalling and he tees up Payet, whose shot brushes the outside of De Gea's goal. - fooling fans into thinking he had found the bottom corner.

United have improved since the break and now they are level. De Gea's long kick finds Rashford who finds Mata and as Spaniard ghosts past Reid he finds Martial to slot into an empty net. Those missed chance looking costly now for the Hammers.

Corner for United amid a much-improve start to the second half, but Blind's cross is too long for Martial to make anything out of. West Ham will be happy to soak up a little bit of pressure you fancy, and draw United out.

Back under way at Upton Park for the final half of football at the ground. One change for United as Michael Carrick replaces Morgan Schneiderlin.

Half time: West Ham 1-0 Manchester United

The Hammers are half way to marking their final game at Upton Park with a win after Diafra Sakho's early goal. The only question mark over the West Ham display has been how is it only one? Carroll and Payet should both have netted in a half of complete dominance. United have been lackustre and performed like a team who have endured a nightmare journey. Their Champions League hopes hang by a thread.

United want a penalty when Antonio wrestles Martial to the floor. Nothing doing says Mike Dean, and incidentally, so do I.

A small opening for United as Rooney's delicate cross catches Rashford on his heels. One minute added on at the end of an exhilarating half.

West Ham come again and after Reid recycles an over-hit free-kick they work the ball to Antonio, whose shot is deflected wide. Sakho heads Payet's subsequent corner over.

Bit of a foothold for United now as we approach half time but West Ham keeping them at arms length so far. Kouyate and Noble have been excellent in this opening 45 minutes, and their intensity has defined this performance.

A glimmer for Manchester United as Marcus Rashford seemingly gets himself free but he ducks under a header and the ball goes safely behind. That is about as good as it has got for the visitors.

West Ham should be home and dry and considering life at the Olympic Stadium. Martial slips and the hosts suddenly have a three-on-two in their favour. Carroll finds Payet, who cuts inside, takes aim and blasts the ball into the crowd. Not the finish the Upton Park crowd, nor anyone else, was anticipating.

United have gone behind 11 times this season; losing nine, winning one and drawing one. Louis van Gaal's men need to rediscover their powers of recovery if they're keep their Champions League ambitions alive.

Ball in the net for West Ham as Antonio heads in at the back post but the linesman says the ball had already gone out as it looped over De Gea. United rocking, West Ham dominant.

West Ham should double their lead. Daley Blind is bizarrely five yards deeper than any fellow defender and Andy Carroll takes advantage, running through but De Gea makes a good save to keep United in it. Twenty minutes of complete dominance from the hosts.

Slaven Bilic will be delighted with this start from West Ham and Manchester United are just passengers during this frantic start to the game. Payet finishes a move, which he started with a lovely dummy in the middle of the field, with a half volley which is easily saved by De Gea.

Only one team in this game at the moment. West Ham have come to the Upton Park party, with United still on the bus it seems. Valencia heads behind for a corner under no pressure, which after Noble's volley is blocked Ogbonna skies the ball over.

Goal: West Ham 1-0 Manchester United (Diafra Sakho)

The Hammers have lift off inside 10 minutes. Cresswell feeds Lanzini, who in the right-hand channel pulls the ball back to Sakho who via a deflection off Blind finds the corner beyond De Gea.

Manchester United, as you might expect, barely into their stride yet as Antonio brushes off Martial on the left flank and the ball goes behind.

West Ham straight into the ascendancy and Marcos Rojo is fortunate not to concede a penalty when he clumsily fells Lanzini. Payet tried to acrobatically test De Gea but the ball flies over.

Under way at Upton Park/Boleyn Ground. Easy to forget, huge game this for both sides. Mike Dean's whistle barely audible at kick-off.

A mosaic engulfs the far end of the stadium, the bubble machine is in overdrive and the crowd have broken into an early rendition of 'We'll be forever blowing bubbles'. Some noise inside Upton Park.

The tributes to Upton Park are into overdrive ahead of kick-off. A brass band player 'Abide With Me' on top of a video of ex-Hammers players. A stunning atmosphere it must be said, just a shame it is coming amid the scenes which occurred outside the ground.

There is little doubt the delay to kick-off and the reasons for it has really soured the atmosphere around Upton Park for West Ham's final game at this old home. Manchester United may have extra motivation to take all three points tonight.

Louis van Gaal on Sky Sports: "The images shall tell everything. The police was taping it so it was a lot of emotion for the people. This is the second time in London that we have to start late. We have more co-corporation because we have received our preparation time.

"This is not the first time that i see that. It is not so nice but it is part of the job I have to say. The way that we have been received is not the proper way of course. That makes always a difference for the players, that is big. There is a lot of emotion among the players."

Met Police statement: "One police officer and a member of the public sustained minor injuries. There have been no arrests."

Just to recap, here is a review of the events which have occured in and around Upton Park tonight, for those of you joining us late. West Ham United vs Manchester United, the last game scheduled to take place at the Boleyn Ground, has been delayed by 45 minutes and will now kick-off at 8:30pm.

The United coach was delayed on its way to the stadium due to the huge crowd outside. Widespread reports, ample videos on social media and agency images show evidence of supporters throwing bottles and cans at the bus, which has notably damaged the outside the United coach. West Ham co-owner David Sullivan has refused to condemn fans.

We are awaiting news of any arrests or a statement from the Metropolitan Police.

Speaking to BBC Radio Five Live, David Sullivan has not helped matters.

"There was congestion in the street and they couldn't get the coach in. There were people around the coach, but there was no attack on the coach. If you check the coach there won't be any damage to it."

Are you sure, David?

Another video account from outside the ground. United's bus pelted with bottles from supporters. David Sullivan meanwhile says he will miss the family atmosphere at Upton Park.

West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan has expressed his disappointment that the kick-off has been put back by 45 minutes, which means many fans will miss the post-match celebration which has been planned by the club. No mention of the pre-match incident outside Upton Park.

Some more details regarding the delayed kick-off. Manchester United applied to be given the same amount of time to prepare for the game, when they arrived, and because of the congestion outside that has been accepted. Louis van Gaal's side will be delighted by that; can't say the same about Slaven Bilic's team.

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney says West Ham will be "disappointed" by the behaviour of their supporters after their coach was attacked on the way to Upton Park. Not the farewell the Boleyn Ground deserves.

Kick-off put back until 8:30pm.

The United coach has arrived but not before coming under attack from those outside the ground.

Manchester United's coach yet to arrive at Upton Park. We have seen this before, when they were late arriving to White Hart Lane earlier in the season, and the kick-off was put back as a result. We could be set for a similar outcome tonight.

News from outside the ground. sad, if true.

The last few days have been swamped with memories and facts and figures regarding West Ham's final game at Upton Park, so much so that it has been a little overwhelming and even unnecessary. Jamie Redknapp is adding to those tributes on Sky Sports. Frankly, kick-off and even full-time can't come soon enough.

Before we start down a road of nostalgia, it is worth noting that tonight's match is anything but just a farewell to Upton Park. West Ham and Manchester United both have serious ambitions to finishing in the top four. The Hammers must win their final two league games to stand any chance, while United will be guaranteed of a Champions League place if they win their last two games. A draw does no-one any good and gives the initiative to Manchester City.

Just one change made by Slaven Bilic in West Ham's final Upton Park game as Diafra Sakho comes in for Victor Moses.

United make four alterations. Daley Blind and Marcus Rashford return after being rested; Morgan Schneiderlin comes into midfield while Anthony Martial has recovered from injury to start.
