West Ham were held by Stoke in a scrappy goalless draw.
The visitors produced an impressive attacking display to beat Manchester City last week, but could not find the same form again.
Marco van Ginkel, brought in for the injured Xherdan Shaqiri, had Stoke's best chance in the first half but he put wide from close range.
West Ham enjoyed more action in front of goal but they were denied time after time by Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland.
It means the Hammers have now gone six games without a win in the league - their last victory coming against Chelsea on 24 October - although they have picked up four draws in that period.
Stoke City have now kept seven clean sheets in their last nine Premier League games.
