West Ham United 1-1 Stoke City

Latest news

    Andy Carroll was returning from over three months out with an ankle injury

    Andy Carroll’s dramatic late equaliser boosted West Ham’s Premier League survival hopes – and took Stoke City closer to the Championship.

    The hosts are seven points clear of the relegation zone, with Stoke five points adrift of safety with four games left.

    Stoke looked set for a first win in 10 games when Peter Crouch took advantage of Joe Hart’s fumble to score.

    But fellow substitute Carroll, in his first appearance since January, volleyed home a last-minute equaliser.

    The Hammers thought they had won the game when Javier Hernandez scored in injury time, but it was disallowed for a Carroll handball in the build-up.

    It was the third goal they had ruled out in the game. Marko Arnautovic was offside when he headed home on the first occasion – and then he was interfering with play from Edimilson Fernandes’ shot.

    Full report to follow.
