So the title is decided, the top four have a healthy cushion over Chelsea in fifth, and Antonio Conte's side are themselves six points ahead of Arsenal in sixth.

Meanwhile, the Hammers sit seven points clear of the bottom three, and have an extra game in hand.

"I was saying 'I'm coming to a team in the bottom three and if I'm not going to get all the players running, we're going to be in difficulty'".

"We didn't go out there with it really planned".

Stoke City starting XI: Butland; Zouma, Shawcross, Martins Indi, Pieters; Allen, Ndiaye; Bauer, Shaqiri, Sobhi; Diouf. However, the West Ham boss believed his side should have wrapped the game up long before the late drama.

"You need a little bit of luck at certain times but the performances have been incredibly high and the way we have played I couldn't ask for any more from the team".

Arnautovic has been in good form of late too, scoring nine goals and making four in his past 14 games, including setting up Javier Hernandez's equaliser in their 1-1 draw with Chelsea last weekend.

West Ham ended an eight-game winless streak against Stoke by winning the reverse fixture 3-0 in December.

Andy Carroll scored a 90th-minute equalizer for West Ham to draw with relegation-threatened Stoke 1-1 in the English Premier League and come to teammate Joe Hart's rescue after the goalkeeper's latest error on Monday.

Hammers missed a number of decent opportunities, but are now unbeaten in three Premier League matches.

West Ham have only won back-to-back Premier League games at the London Stadium on one previous occasion back in December 2016. Obviously he hasn't played for 11 weeks so I have got that on my mind as well. No one is seriously asking Gareth Southgate to include Andy Carroll or Peter Crouch in his World Cup squad and yet is there anything more traditionally English than the sight of both of them giving their struggling teams a lifeline?

West Ham: Arsenal (away); Manchester City (home); Leicester (away); Manchester United (home); Everton (home).
