West Ham 1-1 Stoke: Carroll denies Potters joy in London

Hammers boss David Moyes said: 'We certainly didn't deserve to lose.

The Austrian joined West Ham last summer and has been their standout player in their quest to fight relegation, which sees them now six points clear of Southampton in 18th.

Stoke is likely to need at least three wins from its final four games to stay up. If we did, the football gods really would be against us'.

Stoke City starting XI: Butland; Zouma, Shawcross, Martins Indi, Pieters; Allen, Ndiaye; Bauer, Shaqiri, Sobhi; Diouf. We bossed the majority of the game. I thought Javier Hernandez and Manuel Lanzini helped, all the players have played well.

"I don't know where we are going to get with him with the short length of time, I don't know about 90 minutes but if we can continue to get him off the bench for twenty or thirty minutes when required it will be more than handy, as it showed tonight".

The draw leaves Stoke on 28 points from 34 games, level with Southampton and five behind 17th placed Swansea City who both have a game in hand, while West Ham are 14th with 35 points.

In a statement Thursday after the charges were filed, the 49ers did not mention any intention to cut Foster. In a statement, the 49ers organizations said: "We will continue to follow this serious matter".

West Ham are on 34 points and a win at the London Stadium on Monday will put them within touching distance of the 40-point figure normally associated with survival.

West Ham ended an eight-game winless streak against Stoke by winning the reverse fixture 3-0 in December.

Hammers missed a number of decent opportunities, but are now unbeaten in three Premier League matches.

West Ham keep Stoke at arms-length after Andy Carroll's last-minute goal salvaged what could prove to be a vital point in their bid to avoid the drop. "We'e playing well, we have an incredible support behind us, and I'm pretty sure come Sunday, there won't be many stadiums rocking the way ours can rock". As far as important top-half business goes, the Premier League season is over.

West Ham: Arsenal (away); Manchester City (home); Leicester (away); Manchester United (home); Everton (home). Great for them, of course - particularly with four testy fixtures to come before the season-ending visit of Everton - but not for anyone else.
