Full time in London

Benrahma's late goal is no less than he and West Ham deserved. This was oh so impressive from the Hammers, who look like they should be a real force in this competition.

Penalty to the visitors

Remarkable this. Rapid Vienna forward Marco Grull goes down in the box and Tobias Stieler points to the spot. Ben Johnson did not even touch him. We'll have a VAR check and the referee is looking at his monitor. Surely he can't give it.
