West Ham v Sunderland preview

West Ham caretaker manager Kevin Keen will include a strong

home-grown contingent for the final game season. Zavon Hines,

Jordan Spence, Freddie Sears, Junior Stanislas, James Tomkins and

Jack Collison are all likely to feature for the relegated Hammers

while Keen said some of those set to leave in the summer will be

left out. They will be without Mark Noble (hernia) and Gary O’Neil

(ankle) while player of the year Scott Parker has been hampered by

an Achilles problem in recent weeks. Sunderland are set to have a

striker available for the game after Asamoah Gyan returned to

training. The Ghana international is battling back after a

hamstring problem, while defender Anton Ferdinand is also back in

training and both could make the squad to face the

already-relegated Hammers. Craig Gordon, Titus Bramble, Michael

Turner, David Meyler, Fraizer Campbell and Marcos Angeleri are all

out with knee injuries, while Kieran Richardson (fractured fibula),

Lee Cattermole (back) and Danny Welbeck (hamstring) remain on the

sidelines. West Ham (from): Green, Jacobsen, Tomkins, Upson,

Hitzlsperger, Piquionne, Spector, Ba, Cole, Boffin, Reid, Da Costa,

Boa Morte, Collison, Keane, Spence, Bridge, Parker, Stanislas,

Hines, Sears. Sunderland (from): Mignolet, Carson, Onuoha, Mensah,

Ferdinand, Bardsley, Riveros, Henderson, Malbranque, Elmohamady,
