Zola is hopeful that England defender Matthew Upson will have recovered from a calf injury, while Luis Jimenez is also back in training after nursing a thigh strain.

Midfielder Valon Behrami is doubtful, however, with a back injury he suffered in last week's defeat against Liverpool.

Kick-off on Monday night is at 8pm.

Hammers (from): Green, Faubert, Upson, Gabbidon, Tomkins, Ilunga, Noble, Parker, Behrami, Kovac, Diamanti, Dyer, Hines, Cole, Jimenez, Kurvez, Franco.
