New West Ham striker Marouane Chamakh goes straight into the Hammers squad to face Sunderland in the Barclays Premier League tomorrow.
The 28-year-old Morocco international has been signed on loan from Arsenal and could make his West Ham debut at the Stadium of Light. Modibo Maiga is missing as he links up with Mali ahead of the African Nations Cup while fellow forward Andy Carroll (knee) is also absent.
Defender Joey O'Brien remains a doubt with a hamstring problem but George McCartney (knee) is definitely out.
Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill will be without defenders Danny Rose and Carlos Cuellar.
The pair both suffered hamstring injuries during last weekend's 2-2 FA Cup third round draw at Bolton and will be missing for several weeks.
Central defender John O'Shea (also hamstring) and striker Stephane Sessegnon (ankle) both missed the game at the Reebok Stadium and have returned to light training, but O'Shea in particular remains a doubt. New signing Alfred N'Diaye is included in the squad after his international clearance came through.
Sunderland (from): Mignolet, Westwood, Bardsley, O'Shea, Kilgallon, Bramble, Gardner, Colback, McClean, Larsson, Johnson, Vaughan, N'Diaye, Sessegnon, Fletcher, Saha, Campbell, Wickham, McFadden.
West Ham (from): Jaaskelainen, Spiegel, O'Brien, Collins, Reid, Tomkins, McCartney, Potts, Spence, Demel, Taylor, Nolan, Noble, Collison, Diarra, Jarvis, J Cole, O'Neil, Vaz Te, C Cole, Chamakh.
