Carroll spares Hart's blushes as West Ham secure late draw against Stoke

Carroll spares Hart's blushes as West Ham secure late draw against Stoke

There have been some positives in their performances under Paul Lambert - but only one win.

The hosts are expected to be without the services of Pedro Obiang, Winston Reid, Sam Byram, Andy Carroll and Michail Antonio.

For the visitors, Lee Grant, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Kevin Wimmer are expected to be sidelined.

Masuaku had a big impact in his first game back, providing the pinpoint cross for Marko Arnautovic to volley home during the 3-0 win over Southampton a fortnight ago.

"I'm pleased we have got people off the bench who can make a difference - we've not always had the depth this season". If we did, the football gods really would be against us.

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

"I think if the team had been playing this way from August, I wouldn't be here and they wouldn't be in the position they are in".

Medical student Marwan Jaber said no chemical weapons were used on April 7. "They were given routine treatment", he told AFP . The worldwide team has been in the country since Saturday, but has not been allowed to visit Douma, the BBC reported.

The West Ham keeper would have been desperate to impress once again ahead of the World Cup, with England manager Gareth Southgate watching from the stands, but he produced a major error which led to Stoke scoring after 79 minutes. We had some good games and have been unfortunate. They are still looking for points as well.

The Potters need to start winning games but they just don't have enough firepower in their side and they are not good enough defensively to buy themselves time to nick a goal. I thought we were excellent.

Think you can do better than Lawro?

West Ham were building pressure on the Stoke goal and Butland parried away a Cresswell free-kick to protect his clean sheet, Lambert turning to Crouch in search of a key goal.

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. They did pay a lot for him and he has never played in the Premier League before.

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.

This term David Moyes' men have won six league games at the London Stadium, five were achieved without conceding and five of the victories were against bottom half sides.
