Egypt’s Ramadan Sobhi played 61 minutes as drew 1-1 to West Ham and missed the opportunity to being able to get out of the relegation zone.

The first-half had no clear chances from both sides with Stoke City mainly defeding and West Ham having more possession. In the 12th minute Stoke right-wing-back Bauer nearly opened the scoring but his shot was not strong enough to trouble Joe Hart.

Ten minutes before the end of the second-half Marco Arnautovic nearly scored the host’s first goal but his shot went straight towards Jack Butland’s head and was given a corner.

In the 55th minute Arnautovic scored a header but the goal was disallowed because he was in an offside position.

In the 61st minute Sobhi got subbed-off for Cameron as he was unable to produce any real danger in the frontline.

Five minutes later the Hammers’ youngster Fernandes scored his side’s first goal but it was once again disallowed because Arnautovic interfered with the play and was ruled offside.

In the 77th minute Peter Crouch scored the Potters’ first goal after Joe Hart poorly saved Shaqiri’s shot.

In the 90th minute Andy Carrol put the scores back level after an unstoppable first touch half volley.

Two minutes later Javier Hernandez scored another goal but it was disallowed due to a handball from Carroll beforehand.

Following this result Stoke City are still 19th on the table with 28 points and they will be facing seventh-placed Burnley. As for West Ham they are currently 14th with 35 points, seven away from the relegation zone, they will face ElNeny’s Arsenal in their next game.
