Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew looks set to be forced into making a couple of changes from the side that drew 1-1 away to Liverpool. James Perch was forced off in the first half of that match and may remain on the sidelines with Vurnon Anita moving forward into midfield and Danny Simpson taking the right back berth.
Elsewhere, Mike Williamson is likely to come in for the suspended Fabricio Coloccini. Further forward, Demba Ba should recover from an ankle knock to take his place in the starting XI while Cheikh Tiote again misses out through suspension.
As for the Hammers, Sam Allardyce could be set to name the same lineup as the one which recently held Manchester City to a goalless draw. Modibo Maiga is pushing for a start but could again be forced to sit on the substitutes bench.
The ex-Newcastle boss could have his options increased with Guy Demel and Alou Diarra poised to return to the squad. Ricardo Vaz Te (dislocated shoulder) and Jack Collison (knee) remain out.
