West Ham look to boost survival hopes with Stoke win

West Ham United transfer news MLS side DC United interested in Javier Hernandez

West Ham manager David Moyes: "It was a great point at Chelsea".

The Hammers now sit just six points off the bottom three, whilst Stoke are stuck firmly in the drop zone. In the main, we played well and were on top when they got their goal. If we did, the football gods really would be against us'.

West Ham turned over Stoke a few months ago. However, the West Ham boss believed his side should have wrapped the game up long before the late drama.

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.

The former Liverpool striker's first goal since November put relegation-threatened Stoke within touching distance of their first win in 10 games. "With the atmosphere in stadium, it is a hard place to come but I thought we were excellent".

Stoke was close to a huge win in its fight to avoid the drop when Carroll, who had been on the field as a substitute for just four minutes, met a left-wing cross with a crisp volley into the bottom corner.

The outlet's reporter also published several videos allegedly showing the launch of interceptor missiles. The Pentagon has denied initiating strikes or conducting any other military activity in Homs province.

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

Monday evening marks one of the most important matches which could, arguably, seal the survival of West Ham United and potentially dent the survival hopes of struggling Stoke City.

Hammers missed a number of decent opportunities, but are now unbeaten in three Premier League matches. "I couldn't ask for any more from my players", Lambert said.

West Ham: Arsenal (away); Manchester City (home); Leicester (away); Manchester United (home); Everton (home).

West Ham have only won back-to-back Premier League games at the London Stadium on one previous occasion back in December 2016.

"I think the important thing was to make sure we didn't lose tonight and I thought the commitment from the players, energy, to make sure that didn't happen showed late on but their play throughout with the ball was one of the better performances I have seen since I have been here".
