Squad To Face Man U

GOALKEEPER Roy Carroll returns to the West Ham United squad as Alan Pardew's men prepare to face Manchester United live on Sky this afternoon, kick-off 4.00pm.

Carroll is back after missing the last five matches with a knee injury, but faces stiff competition from understudy Shaka Hislop for the goalkeeper's jersey today.

Mark Noble is again in the squad after impressing on his Premiership debut against Spurs last weekend, and the 18-year-old Academy graduate looks set to keep his place in the absence of Nigel Reo-Coker, who has a fractured ankle.

Frenchman David Bellion, on loan from Manchester United, is also in the squad against the club that still employs him, while Teddy Sheringham looks set to captain the Hammers against the team where he spent a trophy-laden spell between 1997 and 2001.

The squad to face Manchester United is as follows:

Carroll (GK), Hislop (GK), Bywater (GK), Etherington, Mullins, Gabbidon, Repka, Konchesky, Bellion, Collins, Dailly, Aliadiere, Newton, Ferdinand, Harewood, Zamora, Clarke, Sheringham, Noble, Benayoun, Fletcher.

West Ham United v Manchester United at Upton Park, kick-off 4.00pm.
