Hammers without Nolan for Chelsea trip

West Ham look set to be without captain Kevin Nolan for their Barclays Premier League trip to London rivals Chelsea on Sunday.

Nolan suffered a broken toe in the home defeat to Tottenham last month and is yet to return to training, with Mark Noble (arm) also absent and Joe Cole (hamstring) a major doubt to face his old club.

Matthew Taylor is in contention after recovering from a concussion and defender George McCartney could also be involved after missing three months with a knee problem.

Provisional squad: Jaaskelainen, Spiegel, Reid, Tomkins, Collins, Pogatetz, McCartney, O’Brien, Demel, Jarvis, Diame, O’Neil, Collison, Taylor, Diarra, C Cole, Vaz Te, Carroll, Maiga, Chamakh.
