LONDON (AP) -- Marko Arnautovic struck an injury-time equalizer as Stoke City fought back to draw 1-1 with West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday.

Aaron Cresswell curled in a sublime left-footed free kick to give West Ham the lead early in the first half at Upton Park.

The 25-year-old left back, excelling in his first season in the Premier League after joining from Ipswich last summer, bent the ball past beyond Stoke goalkeeper Asmir Begovic in the seventh minute.

Stoke worked hard to force its way back into the match, with striker Jonathan Walters testing the West Ham defense throughout.

Arnautovic coolly slotted past West Ham goalkeeper Adrian in additional time to give Stoke a share of the points.
