Team news ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash between West Ham and Stoke at Upton Park.
West Ham have no fresh injury worries for the visit of the Potters.
Demba Ba is expected to lead the attack having netted three goals in as many games, while midfielder Thomas Hitzlsperger is a welcome addition in the squad again following his injury lay-off.
Junior Stanislas (hernia) is doubtful while Jack Collison (knee), Kieron Dyer and striker Robbie Keane (both thigh) remain out although all are closing on a return.
Stoke manager Tony Pulis will check the fitness of Matthew Etherington and Jermaine Pennant.
Etherington could return to the starting XI after a back problem, while Pennant suffered a hamstring strain in the draw with West Brom on Monday and will be assessed.
Abdoulaye Faye remains doubtful with a hamstring injury and Mamady Sidibe is out with a ruptured Achilles.
