Collison has not featured for the Hammers since the final game of last season but is back in action after recovering from a serious knee injury.

Manager Sam Allardyce is still struggling with a long injury list with Mohamed Diame (hamstring), Andy Carroll (knee), Ricardo Vaz Te (shoulder) and Alou Diarra (thigh) missing and Yossi Benayoun (knee) unlikely to feature.

Provisional squad: Jaaskelainen, Spiegel, O’Brien, Reid, Collins, Tomkins, McCartney, Spence, Demel, Moncur, Taylor, Noble, Collison, Lletget, Nolan, Jarvis, Benayoun, O’Neil, Maiga, Cole.
