Sam Allardyce has none of his injured players returning to fitness in time to face Liverpool in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday.
West Ham will still be without a host of names for the game at Upton Park, with Matt Jarvis (thigh), Andy Carroll (ankle), Kevin Nolan (shoulder) and Joey O’Brien (knee) all missing and James Collins (hamstring) still a doubt.
But Allardyce could yet hand full debuts to Carl Jenkinson, Alex Song and Morgan Amalfitano after the trio all came off the bench in Monday night’s 2-2 draw at Hull.
Provisional squad: Adrian, Jaaskelainen, Cresswell, Reid, Burke, Tomkins, Collins, Demel, Jenkinson, Noble, Kouyate, Song, Poyet, Morrison, Amalfitano, Downing, Vaz Te, Cole, Zarate, Sakho, Valencia.
Defender Martin Skrtel returns to the Liverpool squad to face West Ham after recovering from a knee injury which has sidelined him for three matches.
Fellow defender Glen Johnson (thigh) is unlikely to be ready to come back while Jon Flangan has undergone an operation on a troublesome knee.
Midfielder Joe Allen has still not recovered from a knee injury sustained on international duty while Daniel Sturridge is edging closer to a return from a thigh strain.
Provisional squad: Mignolet, Manquillo, Sakho, Lovren, Moreno, Gerrard, Henderson, Lallana, Markovic, Sterling, Balotelli, Jones, Skrtel, Toure, Enrique, Lucas, Coutinho, Borini, Suso, Lambert.
