Lukasz Fabianski and Robert Snodgrass could return for West Ham when they host Premier League leaders Liverpool.
Goalkeeper Fabianski is back in training after a hip problem and midfielder Snodgrass is battling to overcome a knee injury.
Ryan Fredericks, Felipe Anderson, Andriy Yarmolenko, Arthur Masuaku and Jack Wilshere are still sidelined.
Liverpool forward Sadio Mane will miss the next two matches with a muscle tear but should return immediately after the club’s mid-season break next month.
Manager Jurgen Klopp will restore his full-strength line-up having given most of them the day off for Sunday’s FA Cup fourth-round draw at Shrewsbury.
He could bring back Fabinho for his first Premier League start since the end of November because of injury.
