Joey O'Brien scored his first Premier League goal to cancel out Jonathan Walters' opener and hand West Ham a share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw with Stoke at Upton Park.
The Potters went ahead in the first half thanks to a brilliant set-piece which saw Walters make a perfectly-timed run from the far post to greet Glenn Whelan's ball with a clinical finish.
But Sam Allardyce's men came out fighting after the break and O'Brien proved the unlikely hero as he prodded home Gary O'Neil's cross after some solid work from Mohamed Diame.
The hosts saw more of the ball in the opening 10 minutes but Stoke showed their usual aerial threat on a couple of occasions, most notably when Ryan Shawcross angled a long ball forward which Peter Crouch knocked down into the path of the onrushing Charlie Adam, who could not keep his shot down.
Unsurprisingly Stoke's opening goal came from a set-piece but it was not scored in the manner usually associated with Tony Pulis' side.
