West Ham boss Moyes reveals Carroll ready for Stoke

However, Sam Byram, Pedro Obiang and Winston Reid are all still on the sidelines.

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

Steve Wilson: "Q: Which current Premier League clubs can boast that they have enjoyed ten consecutive seasons in the top flight?" The couple have been targeted since the Northumberland official, who was on duty at West Ham last night (above), gave Real Madrid a disputed penalty from which they knocked out Juventus in last week's Champions League quarter-final.

"Wear them down, get the goals late on but the game changed when they got the goal. The Hammers will probably just survive - but it's been a long and troubled campaign which will fill nobody which much optimism for the immediate future".

The Hammers go into their match on Monday evening off a one-all draw against Chelsea preceded by a 3-0 win over Southampton.

He added: "We didn't need to make subs, we were playing well and in their half, I thought the goal would come and I thought we could score late on".

"The ideal situation is to go unbeaten between now and the end of the season, there is no reason why we can't do that". Going behind, we could have come away with nothing and the points we've picked up recently will help us. "But we did on the bench, I thought all the subs who came on made a big difference, we've not had that very often and I'm very pleased to get them back".

'I don't think he will (slack off) now, because he knows what got the crowd from booing him to cheering him every week and becoming one of their heroes'.

The point left West Ham seven points clear of the relegation zone.

Think you can do better than Lawro?

Carroll last played for West Ham more than three months ago, with an ankle injury depriving the team of its target man up front.

The former Liverpool striker's first goal since November put relegation-threatened Stoke within touching distance of their first win in 10 games.

West Ham had the ball in the back of the net after 65 minutes but Edimilson Fernandes' low strike was ruled out due to Arnautovic being flagged offside, which obstructed Jack Butland's view.
