Yossi Benayoun returns to West Ham squad for Liverpool match

Premier League team news

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce will welcome Yossi Benayoun back into his squad to face Liverpool in the Barclays Premier League on Sunday.

The former Reds midfielder missed the Hammers' 3-1 win over Chelsea as he was ineligible to appear against his parent club.

Andy Carroll (knee) could be missing for two months but would not have been able to feature against Liverpool due to the terms of his loan, whilst Ricardo Vaz Te (shoulder), Alou Diarra (thigh) and Jack Collison (knee) are all definitely out.

Provisional squad: Jaaskelainen, Spiegel, O'Brien, Reid, Collins, Tomkins, McCartney, Spence, Demel, Taylor, Diame, Noble, Nolan, Jarvis, Diarra, Benayoun, O'Neil, Maiga, Cole.
