West Ham United travel to Arsenal on Sunday looking to edge ever closer to Premier League survival after a the draw with Stoke City.

West Ham have turned a corner of late with a resounding win over relegation rivals Southampton, a draw at Chelsea and then rescuing a 1-1 draw at home to Stoke last time out.

The Hammers sit 14th on 35 points knowing one more win will ensure their survival but now face a tough run in starting at Arsenal on Sunday.

West Ham were the better side for long periods against the Potters but when it came to the crunch much-criticised goalkeeper Joe Hart let them down.

Gareth Southgate watched on as Hart – man of the match against Chelsea the game before – spilled a tame shot and then failed to react quickly enough as Peter Crouch followed in to poke home.

Andy Carroll spared Hart’s blushes with a late equaliser as it finished 1-1. 

But it didn’t spare Hart the wrath of the West Ham fans who are demanding David Moyes reinstates Adrian to the starting XI for the trip to face the Gunners.

With Manchester City at home the following week – in which Hart can’t play against his parent club – supporters feel now is the time for the Spaniard to come back into the side so he is not caught cold against the newly-crowned champions.

Fans flooded Twitter to criticise Hart, who was mocked by supporters during the game after his error.

Joe hart wtf was that is he capable of stringing a couple of decent games together?

Should never have signed him, he hasn’t been good apart from 1-2 games. Should’ve just stayed with Randolph and Adrian. #COYI #WHUFC

The complete lack of even medium-term vision that plagues English football can be summed up no better than West Ham continuing to persist with joe hart in goal.
