West Ham v Everton preview

Everton will look to continue their push for a top-four spot when they travel to West Ham on Saturday.

But Marouane Fellaini is unavailable for the visitors as he serves the first of a three-game suspension.

The Belgium international was handed a ban by the Football Association for his headbutt on Stoke's Ryan Shawcross last weekend.

Phil Neville is also out with a knee injury so there could be an opportunity for Germany international Thomas Hitzlsperger against his former club.

And there remain doubts over Tony Hibbert and Kevin Mirallas who are struggling with calf and hamstring injuries respectively.

West Ham welcome midfielder Jack Collison back into their squad.

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

The return of the Wales international provides a much-needed boost for Sam Allardyce as the Hammers boss is having to deal with a lengthy injury list.

Mohamed Diame (hamstring), Ricardo Vaz Te (shoulder) and Alou Diarra (thigh) are all missing, while Andy Carroll and Yossi Benayoun remain out with knee problems.
