Andy Carroll off the bench with a bitter blow for Stoke

Andy Carroll off the bench with a bitter blow for Stoke

"But we have been playing really well of late". In his first game back, he made a mistake for a goal in a 3-0 loss at Burnley on March 10, and this one against Stoke was nearly an exact replica as he fumbled a shot in front of him by Xherdan Shaqiri.

West Ham had three efforts ruled out after Marko Arnautovic was twice offside and Carroll handled inside the box but Lambert said his team were due a bit of luck and felt they deserved to come away from east London with a point.

"We've still got four games so no-one is safe".

Lambert reflected afterwards: 'It is a blow because we were so close to winning. "We don't need to put any extra pressure on ourselves". I couldn't ask for any more from my players'.

"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". "A win on Sunday would really set the cat among the pigeons".

West Ham will count themselves unlucky not to have won after having three goals disallowed in the second half, but the victory means they now stand seven points clear of the bottom three, while Stoke are five points adrift of the safety zone.

"It fell right into my path on my left foot, I swung a leg at it and it went in".

Immigration minister Caroline Nokes appeared to suggest that some individuals may already have been deported in error. This should not happen to people who have been longstanding pillars of our community.

"We took points off them, though, and it's a point for us, so it's a good result in the end".

Hart's failure to impress came while his Stoke counterpart Jack Butland - another contender for the England number one shirt - produced a solid display.

Referee Michael Oliver was in charge of his first match since he caused a storm by giving Real Madrid a controversial penalty and sending off Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon in the Champions League last week.

Playmaker Manuel Lanzini returns to the bench tonight, and joins Adrian, Patrice Evra, Josh Cullen, Jordan Hugill, Andy Carroll and Javier Hernandez as substitutes.

Then a low Edimilson Fernandes drive flew past Butland but Arnautovic, this time clearly offside, was in the keeper's way.

Their goal killed us... it would have been vital three points, a lifeline.
