Manager Sam Allardyce has confirmed James Tomkins will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing shoulder surgery whilst Winston Reid (hamstring) is a major doubt.

Carl Jenkinson is back in contention having been ineligible against parent club Arsenal last weekend but, whilst Carlton Cole is fit again following a hamstring problem, fellow strikers Andy Carroll (knee) and Enner Valencia (toe) remain sidelined.

New Sunderland head coach Dick Advocaat will consider selecting Adam Johnson after the club lifted a suspension imposed following his arrest.

Midfielder Lee Cattermole completes a two-game ban.

Young striker Duncan Watmore, 21, could be involved, while both John O’Shea and Sebastian Larsson hope to be fit despite missing several days of training.

West Ham caretaker manager Kevin Keen will include a strong home-grown contingent for the final game season.

Zavon Hines, Jordan Spence, Freddie Sears, Junior Stanislas, James Tomkins and Jack Collison are all likely to feature for the relegated Hammers while Keen said some of those set to leave in the summer will be left out.

They will be without Mark Noble (hernia) and Gary O’Neil (ankle) while player of the year Scott Parker has been hampered by an Achilles problem in recent weeks.

Sunderland are set to have a striker available for the game after Asamoah Gyan returned to training.

The Ghana international is battling back after a hamstring problem, while defender Anton Ferdinand is also back in training and both could make the squad to face the already-relegated Hammers.

Craig Gordon, Titus Bramble, Michael Turner, David Meyler, Fraizer Campbell and Marcos Angeleri are all out with knee injuries, while Kieran Richardson (fractured fibula), Lee Cattermole (back) and Danny Welbeck (hamstring) remain on the sidelines.

West Ham (from): Green, Jacobsen, Tomkins, Upson, Hitzlsperger, Piquionne, Spector, Ba, Cole, Boffin, Reid, Da Costa, Boa Morte, Collison, Keane, Spence, Bridge, Parker, Stanislas, Hines, Sears.

Sunderland (from): Mignolet, Carson, Onuoha, Mensah, Ferdinand, Bardsley, Riveros, Henderson, Malbranque, Elmohamady, Sessegnon, Zenden, Colback, Gyan, Noble, Knott, Adams, Lynch, Laing.
