Joe Hart's mistake in West Ham's 1-1 Premier League draw with Stoke City came as a surprise to manager David Moyes.

Hart failed to gather a shot from Xherdan Shaqiri and was second to the rebound as substitute Peter Crouch pounced to put Stoke in front at London Stadium on Monday.

Andy Carroll's volley salvaged a point for Moyes' men but Hart will be in the spotlight after a second mistake in four games since being restored to the West Ham team.

While the goalkeeper impressed in a 1-1 draw at Chelsea, Hart was at fault for one of Burnley's goals in a 3-0 home defeat last month.

Moyes said: ”I am a bit surprised because of the incident in the game. There is no risk of the ban being increased should it be unsuccessful. The FA will make sure the "Joe Hart will definitely start tomorrow night," Moyes said. "He's been very good around the place and he's ready to play."

“In the first-half, Joe Hart made a couple of really good saves but I don’t think anyone should be surprised because Shrewsbury are doing well in their league, they have a bit of momentum “We tried to put the most experienced team out available to us and we did ,” Moyes added.

Hart appears set to be included in Gareth Southgate's England squad for the World Cup despite playing second fiddle to Adrian for much of the Premier League season.

And Moyes accepted he did not expect Hart - on loan from Manchester City - to be at fault as relegation-threatened Stoke took the lead.

"He had two very similar shots in the first half," Moyes told a news conference. "So it was a surprise that it spilled out. If you're a goalkeeper, it's going to happen [mistakes].

"I said after he made great saves at Chelsea 'well done'. Just like tonight, I'll tell him he should have done better."

West Ham have taken five points from their last three matches and sit seven points above the relegation zone, but Moyes is not convinced his side are assured of a place in next season's Premier League.

"If you get to 40 points, then it'll be close," the Scot said. "We want 40."

David Moyes suggests he will sign new contract .
West Ham manager David Moyes has hinted that he will sign a new contract but says he won’t confirm his future until the summer, reports Sky Sports. Moyes succeeded Slaven Bilic as West Ham manager in November on a deal until the end of the season. He arrived with the club in the relegation zone, having accumulated just nine points in 11 games. They now sit 14th, six points above the drop and looking like they will comfortably survive. In Friday’s press conference, Moyes left hints that he had been offered a new deal, but refused to commit his future, saying guaranteed survival comes first: “We have to make sure we are still a Premier League team. I’m not going to have any discussions before then. I get on with the chairman and we speak regularly but we are both more than happy to wait until the end of the season.” The appointment of the Scotsman was questioned at the time, but he has come through tough times like the crowd trouble against Burnley and has turned the Hammers fortunes around, making them harder to beat, as shown in the 1-1 draw against Chelsea this month.
