FULL-TIME: West Ham are off to the perfect start with a 1-0 victory at home to Aston Villa. Kevin Nolan's close-range finish five minutes before half-time was enough to seal all three points. Substitute Modibo Maiga should have added a second deep into stoppage time, but Nathan Baker got back to make the clearance off the line. Villa were short of ideas and have plenty of work ahead of them.
SUBSTITUTION: New £5million signing Modibo Maiga replaces Carlton Cole for the Hammers.
SUBSTITUTION: Barry Bannan replaces Fabian Delph as Villa make their final change of the afternoon.
SUBSTITUTIONS: James Tomkins replaces goalscorer Kevin Nolan for West Ham while Gary Gardner comes on for Charles N'Zogbia.
SUBSTITUTION: Joey O'Brien replaces George McCartney in the full-back position for West Ham. A straight swap.
