Kevin Nolan returns for the Boxing Day visit of Arsenal after completing a three-match ban. Spanish goalkeeper Adrian could keep Jussi Jaaskelainen on the bench once again after starting last weekend's 3-1 defeat at Manchester United.
Jack Wilshere remains unavailable for Arsenal as he serves out a two-match ban. Arsene Wenger could be set to rotate in attacking areas, with the fit-again Lukas Podolski and Santi Cazorla all in the frame.
At the back, Kieran Gibbs was recalled in place of Nacho Monreal against Chelsea and those roles could be reversed at West Ham. Wenger could have Laurent Koscielny back from his knee injury, although Thomas Vermaelen is expected to retain his start.
