West Ham United 1-1 Stoke City

West Ham United 1-1 Stoke City

Peter Crouch had fired the Potters ahead, seizing on Joe Hart's parry from Xherdan Shaqiri's low drive.

Stoke managerLambert, meanwhile, remains convinced that his players have the quality to prolong the club's 10-year stay in the top flight, with Sunday's clash with Burnley now heightened in importance.

West Ham boss David Moyes cut a serene figure after a last-gasp leveller from substitute Andy Carroll boosted his side's Premier League survival chances and deepened the relegation worries of opponents Stoke.

There was little to choose between the sides in the first period with Marko Arnautovic's shot into Jack Butland's face probably the closest either team came to scoring.

Arnautovic thought he had opened the scoring in the 55th minute when he glanced in Cresswell's cross, but the offside flag cut short his celebrations, replays showing the decision was marginally correct.

Stoke City felt they were unlucky in recent defeats by Arsenal and Tottenham, and manager Paul Lambert said they had to get "something" out of this game at London Stadium.

The former England global quickly came up with a massive moment for his side, showing attacking instinct to ram home the loose ball after Hart somehow let Shaqiri's strike slip out of his grasp.

"There's winnable games left and if we win three of them then who knows what will happen?"

West Ham ace Carroll reflected on the last-gasp handball that put paid to a potential victor from Javier Hernandez.

It's been another frustrating season for West Ham, but things have been looking up recently as they bid to avoid relegation from the Premier League.

Stoke's best chance - bar the goal - came moments after Arnautovic's disallowed goal when Diouf blazed over from six yards out. The Potters are 19th with five games remaining.

West Ham United had Andy Carroll to thank as they gained a big point towards the bottom of the Premier League.

West Ham held Chelsea to a 1-1 draw last weekend, giving them four points in their last two games.

All the same, it was easy to see why they were averaging under a goal per game this season.
