West Ham United fullback George McCartney believes they showed great resilience to earn a point against Stoke City.

McCartney believes West Ham's resilience will stand them in good stead as they approach the next three games; away at Spurs on Sunday and Manchester United the following Wednesday with Chelsea at home three days later.

"With Tottenham a bit shaky at the moment, I think they will find out how difficult it is to beat us," he said. "We have 19 points already this season and we want to stay in the top half of the table."
