West Ham welcome midfielder Jack Collison back into their squad for their Premier League clash with Everton on Saturday.

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.
