Football: Weekend guide to the Premiership - West Ham v Blackburn Last season: 2-1

WEST HAM, cheered by last week's fightback at Anfield to steal a point, should have Rio Ferdinand at the heart of their defence as usual for the visit of Blackburn to Upton Park. The England defender has been troubled by a back problem since the 2-2 draw at Anfield but he came through a training session yesterday. Further good news for manager Harry Redknapp is that Paolo Di Canio and Paul Kitson are fit again to add some much- needed guile to the Hammers front line. Joe Cole has thrown off a virus to declare himself fit for action.
