"We're in a good position - far better than when I took over - and it was a good point in the end", said Moyes. However, the West Ham boss believed his side should have wrapped the game up long before the late drama.

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.

Hart spilled Shaqiri's shot from 18 yards out and substitute Crouch reacted quickest to score on the rebound.

"I think the points we've taken in recent weeks have been really important, winning here against Southampton (3-0) and taking a point at Chelsea (1-1)".

"I thought Chicharito (Hernandez), Andy (Carroll) and Manuel Lanzini all did well as subs".

"I don't know where we are going to get with him with the short length of time, I don't know about 90 minutes but if we can continue to get him off the bench for twenty or thirty minutes when required it will be more than handy, as it showed tonight".

"If there is a little bit of lady luck it hasn't come our way but the performances have been very good". If we get a win on Sunday [at home to Burnley] it puts the cat among the pigeons. "I was due it, the team was due it, the football club was due it and if it is offside, it doesn't matter if it is marginally offside, or close, it is offside".

West Ham's attacking pressure eventually told, though, Carroll showing poise and balance to volley a Cresswell cross beyond the reach of Butland to earn his side a point.

"Wear them down, get the goals late on but the game changed when they got the goal".

"For the team, for us, at the time it was hard because it meant we had to go and look to change after we had been the dominant team, apart from the first five or 10 minutes of the second half".

"We did some good things, we just needed something different up front, Marko [Arnautovic] didn't quite produce that tonight".

"I've seen a couple of them [disallowed goals] and they look the right decision, I've not seen the one by Andy but the referee has done a good job. We've just had a win and two draws".
