New West Ham striker Marouane Chamakh goes straight into the Hammers squad to face Sunderland in the Premier League tomorrow.

The 28-year-old Morocco international has been signed on loan from Arsenal and could make his West Ham debut at the Stadium of Light. Modibo Maiga is missing as he links up with Mali ahead of the African Nations Cup while fellow forward Andy Carroll (knee) is also absent.

Defender Joey O’Brien remains a doubt with a hamstring problem but George McCartney (knee) is definitely out.

Provisional squad: Jaaskelainen, Spiegel, O’Brien, Collins, Reid, Tomkins, McCartney, Potts, Spence, Demel, Taylor, Nolan, Noble, Collison, Diarra, Jarvis, J Cole, O’Neil, Vaz Te, C Cole, Chamakh.
