Hull City: McGregor, Davies, Dawson, Elmohamady, Robertson, Diamé, Huddlestone, Livermore, Quinn, Hernández, Jelavic

West Ham United: Adrian, Demel, Cresswell, Tomkins, Reid, Kouyate, Noble (c), Zarate, Downing, Sakho, Valencia

Subs: Jaaskelainen, Jenkinson, Collins, Song, Vaz Te, Amalfitano, Cole

Hull City head into this game looking to react after a narrow defeat away at Aston Villa.

The Tigers have made a decent start to the Premier League this season, with a digit in every column and three goals both scored and conceded.

Steve Bruce will be looking for a clean sheet and a little more creativity from his team going forward.

West Ham will be well supported as they always are away from home and will be equally keen to respond positively, as they were well beaten at home by Southampton in their last game.

Manager Sam Allardyce has tasked the side with producing more goals, as they themselves have only managed four goals in the league so far.

A win for Hull would move them onto seven points, which would seem them leap above Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United in the table.

A win for the Hammers would see them climb into the top half of the table, above United and onto six points.
