West Ham United moved level on points with sixth-placed Arsenal after being held to a 1-1 draw at home to Stoke City in a dour Premier league clash at Upton Park.

Jonathan Walters put the visitors in front after 13 minutes when he finished off a training ground routine from a corner by losing his marker and firing in at the near post from 10 metres.

Steven Nzonzi hit the bar for Stoke with a rasping drive from distance seven minutes from halftime but West Ham equalised three minutes after the break when Joey O'Brien scored his first Premier League goal by turning in Gary O'Neil's low cross.

All Whites' defender Winston Reid once again played 90 minutes for West Ham as he continues to establish his place at the back for the newly-promoted side.

The Hammers fine start to the season sees them on 19 points from 12 games, nine behind leaders Manchester City, while Stoke are in 14th place with 13 points, four above the drop zone.
