West Ham have forward Diafra Sakho available again after a knee injury.
Sakho’s recovery means the Hammers have a full-strength squad for the visit of Watford, with Sam Byram, Manuel Lanzini and Andy Carroll in line for a recall.
Watford head coach Quique Sanchez Flores has promised to make changes with Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final against Crystal Palace in mind.
Goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes is the only confirmed starter for Wednesday’s rearranged fixture.
WHAT THE MANAGERS SAY
West Ham manager Slaven Bilic: “[Watford] will probably think a bit about the game at the weekend, and maybe they will rest some players.
“But they brought a lot of players, experienced players, in the summer and in January. They have a big squad and a certain way of playing, and players who maybe start on Wednesday will have some fresh legs which is good for them.
“No matter which team they put out we need a win. The gap (to fourth place) is big, but the gap can be reduced.
“We have to win games. We are still in a big race for Europe and we are going to do everything we can.”
Watford head coach Quique Sanchez Flores: “We will use a lot of new players (against West Ham). I am completely confident in the first XI I will pick; I am really curious how we can develop, and the characteristics of the players.
“We respect West Ham, they are very good, they are one of the best in the Premier League but I trust a lot in my players and I think we can give a very good performance.”
With the Hornets playing Crystal Palace in the FA Cup semi-finals this weekend, Quique Sanchez Flores is going to change his team around. Because of that, I am backing West Ham.
