West Ham manager Sam Allardyce is regretting a missed opportunity to climb above Arsenal and Everton as they drew 1-1 with Stoke.

The Hammers missed out on the chance to move up to fifth in the table following the draw and Allardyce felt his side did enough to win the game after the break.

“In the end we were disappointed we didn’t win it, given our second-half performance,” he said.

“When you put that much pressure on the opposition second half you have got to try and a be a bit more ruthless in front of goal, a little bit more quality and composure needed and we probably would have won it, but at the end of the day it is another point.”
