Full-time at the London Stadium: West Ham United 1-1 Stoke City

The Potters boss was cursing his luck again as his side were moments from securing a precious victory at West Ham until Andy Carroll climbed off the bench to snatch a 1-1 draw in the last minute.

The crucial 1-1 draw takes Moyes' side seven points clear of the Premier League relegation zone, while at the same time leaving the Potters five points from safety.

First Arnautovic converted Cresswell's cross with a deft header but he had strayed marginally offside.

"We're in a good position, a far better one than when I took over, and it's a good point".

"He didn't give it and at the end of the day we got a point".

Carroll thought he had an assist as well as his goal, teeing up Javier Hernandez to fire into the net in stoppage time. This game is important for both sides, but the world wants, needs and deserves more important games, an entire month of them. Referee Michael Oliver was in charge of his first match since he caused a storm by sending off Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon against Real Madrid last week.

Those vital four points have moved the Hammers six points above the drop zone, and a win on Monday night will move them up to 12th in the table and nearly guarantee their Premier League status for next season.

He added: "I actually thought all the subs who came on made a big difference - Chicharito, Andy and Lanzini all came on and helped it". "He got unfairly criticised from a lot of quarters".

"We had a few chances, goals disallowed, but for us, it's a good result".

Lambert had to be fearless and he was when he brought on 37-year-old Crouch for Bauer, who was playing in midfield but is usually a defender.

It was a bitter blow for Paul Lambert's Stoke, who remain second bottom of the Premier League.

But unless they have a turnaround in fortune in the final four games, he will not have many more chances to extend that record.

Four minutes later, the 29-year-old was celebrating an excellent equaliser as he swung a boot at Cresswell's cross from near the penalty spot.

On this occasion, he was involved in three disallowed West Ham goals.
