West Ham are without goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski against Crystal Palace.

Fabianski is expected to be sidelined for up to three months after sustaining an injury while taking a free-kick against Bournemouth last weekend.

Midfielder Jack Wilshere is back to full fitness, although he recently missed a day of training with a slight muscle twinge, while defender Winston Reid remains on the long-term injury list.

Crystal Palace will be without midfielder Luka Milivojevic, who serves a one-match ban following a fifth caution in last weekend’s win over Norwich.

Victor Camarasa could come into contention for a midfield berth, but defender Mamadou Sakho remains unavailable as he recovers from a muscular strain.

Forward Connor Wickham has returned to training following an ankle problem.

West Ham provisional squad: Roberto, Fredericks, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Rice, Yarmolenko, Noble, Fornals, Anderson, Wilshere, Lanzini, Balbuena, Zabaleta, Ajeti, Snodgrass.

Crystal Palace provisional squad: Guaita, Ward, Van Aanholt, Schlupp, Cahill, Kelly, McCarthy, Kouyate, McArthur, Ayew, Zaha, Hennessey, Tomkins, Dann, Meyer, Townsend, Camarasa, Benteke, Wickham.
