Marko Arnautovic's dramatic stoppage-time equaliser earned Stoke a 1-1 Premier League draw at West Ham.

The hosts looked to have done enough to battle to victory after taking an early lead through a superb free-kick by full-back Aaron Creswell.

However, after seeing two efforts from Arnautovic's ruled out for offside and a header by substitute Mame Diouf hit the post, the visitors snatched a point deep into five minutes of stoppage time when the Austrian forward crashed the ball into the far corner.

Stoke City chief executive Tony Scholes says the club are hopeful of getting Asmir Begovic to sign a new deal.

The Bosnian goalkeeper, who has been linked with moves to Liverpool and Arsenal, has a contract that runs to next summer and Stoke believe they can match his ambitions.

Clearly Asmir is a terrific goalkeeper and we are very keen to keep him at the club.

I think when you've got extremely good players it is only natural that there will be speculation about their future.

These players are also very ambitious and I include Asmir in that. He is a very focused, very talented and very ambitious young man.

He wants to make sure he can play at the very best levels his abilities will enable him to and to have a very good and successful career in the game .

We hope that we can fulfil all of those things at Stoke City.
