London:

West Ham will head into 2014 stuck in the Premier League's relegation zone after twice surrendering the lead to draw 3-3 in a thrilling match at Upton Park on Saturday.

Former France striker Nicolas Anelka scored his first goals for West Brom to put his team 2-1 ahead at half-time after Joe Cole had given West Ham a fourth-minute lead.

Substitute Modibo Maiga curled a shot underneath goalkeeper Ben Foster for West Ham's equalizer in the 65th before heading across goal for Kevin Nolan to net a flying volley two minutes later.

That looked like giving the hosts a victory in what under-pressure manager Sam Allardyce had labeled a "must-win" game, but Saido Berahino's low finish in the 69th earned a point for West Brom, which is unbeaten in three matches under caretaker manager Keith Downing.
