Joanthan Kodjia is outside for Aston Villa with a fractured cheekbone, and will spend around three months on the sidelines after undergoing surgery.
Matt Targett and james Chester are back in training with Marvelous Nakamba – who had collided with Kodjia in training – available and fit after their various harms.
West Ham have two players missing – Winston Reid and Michail Antonio. Antonio has had surgery to a hamstring injury that he sustained which may see him sidelined before the new year. Reid stays out of action with a knee injury that is significant.

Charlie Nicholas’ forecast: This is an excellent return collection of fixtures. Manuel Pellegrini is a wise guy, and he likes to receive a balance. Mark Noble and jack Wilshere will probably soon be back in. People are much too enthused about Declan Rice, with a great deal of clumsiness and errors there, because is the predictability together with West Ham. They do seem to have found a man with targets in Sebastian Haller, that presents a physical existence also.
Aston Villa have enhanced, however they want Jack Grealish to perform 10-15 metres higher up the pitch, if they are playing in your home, I continue saying it. You want it about the halfway point or at the opposition half rather than near although he is a pass master. The blend of him and John McGinn is tough for anyone to control. I like Wesley up front and I enjoy what Villa have Right Now.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-1 (9/1 with Sky Bet)
