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.

Sam Allardyce bemoaned West Ham's failure to get anything out of their 2-1 defeat at bottom club Leicester on Saturday.

The Hammers equalised through Chiekhou Kouyate's 32nd minute strike following Esteban Cambiasso's opener, but were denied a point by substitute Andy King's late winner.

We had enough opportunities, so did they (Leicester) and it was a really open game, really end-to-end stuff.

From an entertainment point of view, for a neutral it was fantastic.

From our point of view, it is great to play open, attractive football and create chances, but the bottom line is we haven't got anything out of it - and we are here as professionals to come away with what should at least have been a draw.

Davenport plays for Elstow Abbey FC having drifted down the English football pyramid after being stabbed in the legs by his sister's boyfriend in 2009.

The former England under-21 star lost half the blood in his body and spent two days in intensive care before being released by West Ham in 2010.

He was detained on Saturday for his involvement in an incident which resulted with a 30 year-old man suffering a head injury which required hospital treatment.

It took place in the away dressing room following Elstow Abbey's Bedfordshire County Football League Division One fixture at Cranfield United.

Davenport had been sent off with ten minutes remaining in the match, and is currently on police bail until April 17th.

Cranfield United's chairman, Ed Frost, told Bedfordshire on Sunday:

The incident occurred in the away changing room between away players, it was isolated there and didn’t spill over into the club house.

This followed a tense game between two teams at the top of the table, in which Mr Davenport was sent off in the latter stages.
