Stoke boss Lambert frustrated after West Ham 'blow'

But striker Andy Carroll came off the bench to spared his blushes with a superb equaliser in added time to salvage a draw and move the Hammers a step closer to safety.

"It is a blow because we were so close to winning", Lambert told Sky Sports.

"You feel for Joe Hart after what was a good display at Chelsea - he kept West Ham in the game", said Sutton.

"With effort, commitment and the way we are playing then we will see what happens". We re willing to fight and we have got the supporters behind us. "A win on Sunday really sets the cats among the pigeons".

Stoke remain 19th in the table, five points adrift of safety with four matches remaining, one of which is against Champions League semi-finalists Liverpool at Anfield, while West Ham - who saw three goals ruled out - are seven clear of the drop zone.

"I must have walked under a ladder or broken a mirror", said Lambert. "I came in late, but I'm absolutely loving it and willing to fight".

Although Hart was relieved his howler didn t cost West Ham all three points, his mistake did little to boost his chances of starting for England in the World Cup.

Inmates Killed, 17 Injured During Incident at Lee Correctional
Hours after the violence started, no corrections officers or medical personnel attended to the dead or dying, he said. Four inmates were fatally strangled a year ago at the Kirkland Correctional Institution in the state's capital.

England boss Gareth Southgate was in attendance to witness two Three Lions strikers of old take centre stage.

West Ham were searching for back-to-back Premier League victories at the London Stadium for only the second time and threatened within the opening moments as Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland repelled Arthur Masuaku's low drive with his feet.

Chances were far and few in the opening stanza, however, Stoke keeper Jack Butland made a massive stop in the first half on Marko Arnautovic when the ball struck the face of the England global. Referee Michael Oliver was in charge of his first match since he caused a storm by sending off Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon against Real Madrid last week.

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.

First, Arnautovic converted Aaron Cresswell s cross, but he had strayed marginally offside.

The Hammers had a second goal disallowed on 67 minutes when Edimilson Fernandes' long-range shot flew into the back of the net but Arnautovic - who stepped over the ball - was in an offside position.
