David Moyes attempts to defend Joe Hart after goalkeeper's blunder against Stoke

David Moyes attempts to defend Joe Hart after goalkeeper's blunder against Stoke

David Moyes's side had two goals correctly ruled out for offside and Aaron Cresswell forced two fine saves out of Jack Butland with free-kicks, before the Potters scored what appeared to be the victor through Peter Crouch 11 minutes from time.

West Ham have taken five points from their last three matches and sit seven points above the relegation zone, but Moyes is not convinced his side are assured of a place in next season's Premier League.

West Ham had three goals disallowed, two for offside and a late Javier Hernandez "winner" chalked off for handball against Carroll. If we did, the football gods really would be against us'.

"I'm pleased we have got people off the bench who can make a difference - we've not always had the depth this season". If we get a win on Sunday [at home to Burnley] it puts the cat among the pigeons.

Hart gifted Stoke a goal on Monday night when he fumbled a straightforward shot from Xherdan Shaqiri, allowing Peter Crouch to stab the ball home. It meant we had to change things after we had been dominating the game. "We have a lot of options upfront but he's proved tonight when called upon he can do the business - but he has to stay fit". "I was surprised we went behind as I thought if anyone went ahead it'd be us".

Stoke was close to a huge win in its fight to avoid the drop when Carroll, who had been on the field as a substitute for just four minutes, met a left-wing cross with a crisp volley into the bottom corner.

Arnautovic failed to test Butland on 32 minutes as he scuffed an effort well wide of the left post after good link-up play with Joao Mario, and the action quickly switched to the opposite end with Diouf shooting straight at Hart from inside the D after being played in by a neat pass from Sobhi.

"I have not seen the last one which I think is the most dubious one of them all, but I did see the one that Marko was in line with and I think they got them right", he added.

The Potters need to start winning games but they just don't have enough firepower in their side and they are not good enough defensively to buy themselves time to nick a goal.
