West Ham v Tottenham preview

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has confirmed both James Collins and Joey O'Brien have been training this week and are in contention for the Premier League clash with Tottenham on Monday.

Collins has been missing due to a hamstring problem whilst fellow defender O'Brien was sidelined with a thigh injury but both are now part of Allardyce's squad for the London derby against Spurs.

George McCartney (knee) is also on the comeback trail but the game on Monday will come too soon for him.

Hugo Lloris is expected to return in goal for Tottenham's game against West Ham after being on the bench for Thursday's Europa League draw at Lyon.

Striker Jermain Defoe (ankle) returns to training next week, but he will not be considered for the match against his former club.

Younes Kaboul, Sandro and Tom Huddlestone (all knee) are unavailable.
