As the relegation battle in the Premier League heats up, here are four winners and three losers.

West Ham come into the clash high on confidence after a 3-0 victory over Southampton and a 1-1 draw at defending champions Chelsea in their previous two league games.

After the whistle, many fans took to twitter and Stoke City's Oatcake Fanzine to discuss the situation with many calling the result "heartbreaking" and claiming their side are "doomed".

Andy Carroll equalised for the Hammers at the death but for Hart, the damage had been done.

Crouch had been on the pitch nine minutes when he pounced to turn in the rebound after England goalkeeper Joe Hart spilled a shot from Xherdan Shaqiri.

"He had two very similar shots in the first half", Moyes told a news conference.

A report in The Sun reveals that the former Preston North End forward, 25, who only arrived at the London Stadium in January is set for a quickfire exit after failing to impress and score for the Hammers.

Without back-to-back home wins since 2016, West Ham may have found better form since David Moyes joined them in November but consistency continues to elude them.


Stoke City felt they were unlucky in recent defeats by Arsenal and Tottenham, and manager Lambert said before the game they had to get "something" at London Stadium.

"The level of our performances has been good, even away from home, and if the players continue to have the same belief we have a chance".

Southgate must now have serious doubts about the man who was the undisputed national number one until he lost his West Ham place earlier this season. With both sides requiring a win but fearing a loss, they could well cancel each other out to put another nail in Stoke's ambitions.

Stoke's best chance - bar the goal - came moments after Arnautovic's disallowed goal when Diouf blazed over from six yards out.

"I hope the last four games we can stay together and win a minimum of three games".

But the striker knows he must first focus on doing the business for West Ham. However, this was a games of far rosier fortunes for Hart.

Let me just remind you of those stats.
