Hull City (12th, 4 points)

The Tigers are expected to hand Mohamed Diame his debut against his former club following his Deadline Day move two weeks ago.

Fellow Deadline Day recruits Hatem Ben Arfa and Gaston Ramirez are lacking match fitness and may not feature, while Abel Hernandez is still awaiting a work permit.

West Ham United (15th, 3 points)

Alex Song and Morgan Amalfitano are both in line to make their Hammers debuts, while fellow summer recruit Enner Valencia could be given the nod up front for his first Premier League start for the club.

Arsenal loanee Carl Jenkinson could also make his debut for the Hammers, although it is still unclear whether he has recovered from a hamstring problem.

James Collins has recovered from his hamstring injury and is available for selection, but Matt Jarvis remains sidelined with a thigh problem.
