Predicted West Ham United and QPR line-ups: Poyet and Sandro to start

Match to be played on Sunday 5th October 2014 at 16:15. Venue: Boleyn Ground, London.

West Ham United host Queens Park Rangers at Upton Park on Sunday, hoping to get back to winning ways after slipping to a 2-1 defeat to Manchester United last time out.

Sam Allardyce’s side had previously taken four points from two matches, with a victory over Liverpool the highlight of their campaign to date.

QPR on the other hand have not won in three league matches, losing 2-1 to Southampton last weekend and currently residing in the bottom three.

West Ham injury concerns: Mark Noble has a calf injury but he has a 75 per cent chance of being fit for this match.

West Ham absences: Cheikhou Kouyate is side-lined until November with a groin injury. Joey O’Brien is not expected to be back until the middle of this month while Andy Carroll is a long-term absentee.

QPR injury concerns: Sandro is a doubt with a head injury although he has a strong chance of taking part on Sunday. Jordon Mutch and Joey Barton should be back this month but this game could be too soon for them.

QPR absences: Alejandro Faurlin is out for the season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

Predicted starting line-ups:

West Ham United – Adrian, Tomkins, Reid, Cresswell, Demel, Amilfitano, Poyet, Song, Downing, Sakho, Valencia

Queens Park Rangers – Green, Traore, Ferdinand, Caulker, Isla, Sandro, Fer, Kranjcar, Phillips, Hoilett, Austin
