West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has a decision to make on whether to bring James Collins and Guy Demel back into his defence for Monday’s Premier League clash with Stoke.

Collins was amongst the substitutes for the 1-0 win at Newcastle but could now return to the starting line-up in place of James Tomkins, while full-back Guy Demel also started on the bench.

Matthew Taylor has returned to training following a calf problem but Jack Collison (knee) and Ricardo Vaz Te (shoulder) are out.

Provisional Squad: Jaaskelainen, Spiegel, O’Brien, Reid, Collins, Tomkins, McCartney, Demel, Taylor, Noble, Diame, Nolan, Jarvis, Benayoun, Diarra, O’Neil, Maiga, Cole, Carroll, Spence.
