West Ham United manager David Moyes said he was "thrilled with a point" after Mohammed Kudus scored an 89th-minute equaliser to deny Newcastle United victory in a pulsating match at London Stadium.

Newcastle looked to be heading for a fifth straight win when Alexander Isak's second-half double turned the game around, following Tomas Soucek's eighth-minute opener for the Hammers.

But Kudus' first Premier League goal since joining West Ham in the summer, a driven effort into the bottom corner, ensured the points were shared in the capital.

"We were up against a really good team who are probably as good as most teams in Europe at the moment," Moyes told BBC Match of the Day.

"We nearly won it in the end, Newcastle played well and we didn't give them too many opportunities.

"We had a few ourselves. For us, I'm pleased that we got a point here."

West Ham and Newcastle stayed seventh and eighth respectively in the table as both sides returned to action after wins in Europe.
