Stoke City 2-2 West Ham United – Premier League – 1st October 2014
West Ham fought back from two goals down at the Britannia Stadium to keep alive their excellent run of form which has seen Big Sam’s men fly high in the table.
The Potters were by far the better side for large periods of the game and were 2-0 up before the hour-mark, courtesy of goals from Victor Moses and Mame Biram Diouf. However the Hammers, who were without in-form striker Diafra Sakho, managed to get themselves back into the contest just four minutes after Diouf’s goal, when Enner Valencia headed in Stewart Downing’s centre. At the other end of the pitch Steven Nzonzi went close for the Potters before the superb Downing struck to make it 2-2 and give both sides a share of the spoils.
The Hammers are now fifth, with Stoke 13th.
