Crystal Palace, West Ham and Everton in running for Stoke star Shaqiri

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.

After the whistle, many fans took to twitter and Stoke City's Oatcake Fanzine to discuss the situation with many calling the result "heartbreaking" and claiming their side are "doomed".

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. Of course, no one wants to be injured, and he had a frustrating time with injuries, but he's come back and in five minutes he's scored a goal.

The Stoke man benefited from an error by West Ham stopper Joe Hart, who spilled Xherdan Shaqiri's initial shot into the path of Crouch, who tapped home.

David Moyes backed the Manchester City loanee after the match, telling reporters: "He had two very similar shots in the first half and he took them quite comfortably in his midriff". A win over the Potters would see them rise to 12th and relative safety, but they have failed to win the last five meetings against Stoke when enjoying home advantage.

"You feel for Joe Hart after what was a good display at Chelsea - he kept West Ham in the game", the former Celtic centre-forward added. "If we can get a little break on Sunday against Burnley, we're certainly in with a fight".

"We need to play with the same intensity tonight that we have been playing with, in the last two matches".

I've never thought about relegation.

The Mexican striker has been linked to a few Premier League sides in the past year, and O Jogo seems certain that West Ham were watching him this weekend.

Following the win against Southampton, the Hammers picked up a creditable 1-1 draw at Chelsea, and they would fancy their chances against the Potters, who are on a poor run of form.

But unless they have a turnaround in fortune in the final four games, he will not have many more chances to extend that record.

Stoke have performed even worse on the road this season and have managed just one away win all season.
