West Ham will check on the fitness of Andy Carroll ahead of the crucial battle with Aston Villa this weekend.
The on loan striker made a scoring return to the side in the win over Swansea last weekend but having been out for a couple of months Sam Allardyce will check he has suffered no reaction to that run out.
Defensive duo James Collins (hamstring) and George McCartney (knee) are still out but all of the Hammers' internationals returned from midweek duty unscathed.
Modibo Maiga is back at the club following Mali's exit from the African Cup of Nations but is unlikely to feature.
