West Ham United striker Andy Carroll has insisted that he was satisfied with his side's performance during their 1-1 draw with Stoke City.

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

Hart failed to gather a shot from Xherdan Shaqiri and was second to the rebound as substitute Peter Crouch pounced to put Stoke in front at London Stadium on Monday. "Regardless of how we do it, we have to get a win but we certainly will drag teams into it".

The point lifted the Hammers to 14th position but Stoke remain in the relegation zone, five points adrift of safety with just four matches remaining.

"The goal was a kick in the teeth", Crouch said. "With the atmosphere in stadium, it is a hard place to come but I thought we were excellent".

While the goalkeeper impressed in a 1-1 draw at Chelsea, Hart was at fault for one of Burnley's goals in a 3-0 home defeat last month. As usual, he caused havoc after coming on, and his goal is likely to prompt calls for his inclusion in England's World Cup squad as a Plan B for coach Gareth Southgate, fitness permitting.

The errors won't help Hart's chance of regaining the England jersey off Jordan Pickford ahead of the World Cup in Russian Federation - if he is included in the 23-man squad for the tournament, that is.

And Stoke manager Paul Lambert confirmed how important tonight's game is, saying: "We have to come away (from West Ham) with something without a doubt".

Things are pretty rosy for West Ham at the moment after their point at Chelsea gave them a bit of breathing space above the bottom three.

"If we can keep on doing what we are doing we will win games". "We're right in the fight, no mistake about it".
