Mark Noble and Jonathan Spector are back from injury and could both feature in tonight's big match at Liverpool.

The duo are welcome additions to the squad which is hoping to back up last weekend's win at Sunderland by getting a result at Anfield.

Scott Parker is also available after illness. More good news for the Hammers is that Fernando Torres is out with a hamstring injury.

West Ham have not beaten Liverpool in 37 attempts at Anfield, with the Merseysiders winning the last eight.

Meanwhile, manager Gianfranco Zola denied the ongoing Carlos Tevez saga was affecting his team's performance.

He said: "As far as I'm concerned I know the club is strong enough to deal with it and the players and manager are not concerned about it."

Kick off: 8pm
