West Ham are expected to be unchanged for the visit of Southampton.

Striker Andy Carroll completes his three-match suspension and full-back Joey O'Brien remains sidelined by a shoulder injury.

Manager Sam Allardyce is therefore set to stick with the side which secured back-to-back 2-0 wins over Aston Villa and Norwich.

Southampton will be without defender Jos Hooiveld for the game at West Ham.

The Dutchman suffered an eye injury in training on Wednesday and has been ruled out for the encounter at Upton Park.

Croatian central defender Dejan Lovren and Uruguay midfielder Gaston Ramirez are expected to see some action this weekend having recovered from their respective ankle ligament injuries that kept them sidelined for a month.
