Slaven Bilic has named an unchanged West Ham line-up as they travel to play Watford in Saturday’s early-evening kick-off.
It’s the Hammers’ first match in a fortnight after the Premier League took a backseat for the FA Cup last weekend.
The team news was announced on West Ham’s Twitter page.

West Ham drew with West Brom 2-2 in their last game, but were frustrated after dropping two points to a late West Brom equaliser.
Andy Carroll, 28, still isn’t fit enough to take play, which means that top-scorer Michail Antonio starts up-front.
However, Aaron Cresswell has recovered to retain his place after limping off in the West Brom game after 45 minutes.
The clash at Vicarage Park is a crunch one for the two mid-table teams.
West Ham are currently in tenth place in the league and could leapfrog Stoke into ninth with a win.
However, they’ll be overtaken by their hosts today if Watford pick up all three points.
In the reverse fixture in September, West Ham swept into a 2-0 lead before losing 4-2 in a second-half capitulation.
Bilic will be hoping that history doesn’t repeat itself on Saturday.
