West Ham welcome midfielder Jack Collison back into their squad for their Barclays Premier League clash with Everton on Saturday.

Collison returns for West Ham

Collison has not featured for the Hammers this season but is back in action after recovering from a serious knee injury.

Manager Sam Allardyce is still struggling with a long injury list with Mohamed Diame (hamstring), Andy Carroll (knee), Ricardo Vaz Te (shoulder) and Alou Diarra (thigh) missing and Yossi Benayoun (knee) unlikely to feature.

Everton will be without midfielder Marouane Fellaini as the Belgium international begins a three-match suspension.

The Football Association handed Fellaini the ban after reviewing footage of Saturday's 1-1 draw at Stoke, in which he appeared to headbutt Potters captain Ryan Shawcross.

Toffees boss David Moyes - who has had Kevin Mirallas, Victor Anichebe (both hamstring), Tony Hibbert (calf) and Phil Neville (knee) sidelined in recent weeks - said on Friday morning there was "quite a lot" of injury news within his squad, but would not be drawn on any specifics.

West Ham (from): Jaaskelainen, Spiegel, O'Brien, Reid, Collins, Tomkins, McCartney, Spence, Demel, Moncur, Taylor, Noble, Collison, Lletget, Nolan, Jarvis, Benayoun, O'Neil, Maiga, Cole.
