West Ham United will be looking to follow up Tuesday's away victory at West Bromwich Albion by picking up another three points when Swansea City arrive at Upton Park this afternoon.

Both teams go into the game on good form with the Swans also claiming a victory at home to Queens Park Rangers in midweek.

The corresponding fixture last season saw the end of Michael Laudrup's reign as Swansea manager, as they were beaten 2-0, thanks to a brace from skipper Kevin Nolan. The home side did excellently to hold onto the points, as Andy Carroll was harshly sent off in the second-half of the encounter.

Now the visitors are under the guidance of their former defender Garry Monk, who was appointed Laudrup's permanent successor at the start of the current campaign.

If he is included in the team selection for this game, Nolan will be looking to follow up his strike on Tuesday by notching up his 100th career goal.

Sam Allardyce is hopeful of having Diafra Sakho, Mark Noble and Alex Song back from injury, while James Collins will be hoping to regain his place after being named as a substitute for the trip to The Hawthorns. Enner Valencia will be keen for a recall to the starting line-up after coming off the bench against the Baggies.

The Ecuadorian striker is still looking for his first home goal in a Hammers' shirt and will be hoping he can get it here.

The match kicks off at 1:30pm with Live coverage being screened by Sky Sports from 12:30pm. The referee is Chris Foy.
