Bilic was sent off for taking his anger out on a television microphone, having been frustrated by a number of decisions and already seen his assistant Nikola Jurcevic sent to the stands.
Jonny Evans and Gareth McAuley bundled in Chris Brunt's corner in the 94th-minute to cap off a barn-storming 2-2 draw after West Ham had come from behind to take the lead.
Slaven Bilic's side looked to have successfully overturned a half-time deficit to West Brom and secured all three points after Manuel Lanzini's 85th minute goal put the home side ahead.
West Ham's second-half dominance meant they would have deserved another victory and now they remain five points behind Albion, who will be in their sights from now on. Very positive going forward with the ball, hurting them but also keeping the shape to stop them counterattacking us. To end like this, conceding a late goal after everything that happened regarding the decisions, it's very frustrating and hard to accept.
"It's hard to turn a game against them". I thought that in the first half we played really well.
After falling behind to Chadli's excellent effort, the Hammers dominated for the majority of the contest with some excellent opportunities and Bilic stated that his side played fantastic against a solid side.
Lanzini earned major praise from West Ham fans on Twitter after the game, with many of them pointing out just how impressive he has been since Payet's move to Marseille, anointing him as the club's new chief playmaker.
On Friday Potters boss Mark Hughes accused Pulis calling up Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross and calling him a loser after a 2-2 draw between the teams. "We should have scored more goals". He rolled his midfield players on and that stretched us and caused us more problems.
"It is important that Andy gets good rest periods in between his games for West Ham".
"When they got the second goal you think we're struggling for it".
"But great character from the players".
