Stoke were heading for their first away win since October after substitute Peter Crouch capitalised on a mistake from keeper Joe Hart after 79 minutes to tap home from close-range.

And despite the draw edging West Ham closer to safety, Carroll insists no club is safe.

West Ham boss David Moyes cut a serene figure after a last-gasp leveller from substitute Andy Carroll boosted his side's Premier League survival chances and deepened the relegation worries of opponents Stoke.

Crouch's 79th-minute goal had looked like giving the Potters a smash-and-grab victory when Hammers goalkeeper Joe Hart, in front of watching England manager Gareth Southgate, spilled Xherdan Shaqiri's fierce shot.

Stoke is likely to need at least three wins from its final four games to stay up. "I couldn't ask for any more from my players", Lambert said.

"We got him back at the start of the week so we will keep monitoring him".

The Hammers drew 1-1 at Chelsea last week and now return to the London Stadium, knowing that another three points can haul them further clear of the relegation zone.
