Avram Grant will give fitness tests to several players before deciding on his line-up for the game.

10 first-team regulars were not able to start or were suspended for the 3-1 win at Fulham, with Valon Behrami, Victor Obinna, Pablo Barrera, Mark Noble, Kieron Dyer and Benni McCarthy all playing no part at Craven Cottage.

Luis Boa Morte returns from a ban but Jack Collison, Manual Da Costa and Thomas Hitzlsperger are all definitely out.

West Ham (from): Green, Ben Haim, Tomkins, Upson, Gabbidon, Barrera, Stanislas, Kovac, Ilunga, Parker, Behrami, Dyer, McCarthy, Nouble, Spector, Boa Morte, Cole, Obinna, Piquionne, Sears, Reid, Faubert, Boffin.

Everton (from): Howard, Hibbert, Neville, Distin, Baines, Arteta, Cahill, Fellaini, Rodwell, Osman, Coleman, Bilyaletdinov, Pienaar, Saha, Yakubu, Beckford, Gueye, Baxter, Duffy, Jagielka, Heitinga, Mucha.
