Team news ahead of Saturday afternoon's Premier League clash between West Ham and Aston Villa at Upton Park.
Jack Collison will miss West Ham's Premier League opener but James Collins will be fit to face his former club.
The 23-year-old Collison played a key part in the Hammers' promotion via the play-offs but aggravated an existing knee injury in the process, which has seen him miss pre-season.
Fellow Wales international Collins is fit again after a groin injury, while manager Sam Allardyce revealed his summer signings from overseas, Alou Diarra and Modibo Maiga, will not start.
Aston Villa summer signing Brett Holman has shaken off a knee problem and the midfielder is included in the squad.
Other newcomers, central defender Ron Vlaar, right-back Matthew Lowton and midfielder Karim El Ahmadi, are also in contention to play at Upton Park.
However, striker Gabriel Agbonlahor (knee), defender Richard Dunne (groin) and winger Marc Albrighton (foot) are still sidelined for manager Paul Lambert's first competitive match in charge.
