West Ham v Crystal Palace teams: Experienced Hammers duo return, Palace skipper back, Schlupp involved

West Ham have brought back James Collins and Mark Noble for the visit of Crystal Palace, who have new signing Jeffrey Schlupp on the bench.

The Hammers show three changes from their FA Cup collapse to Manchester City, with Darren Randolph replacing Adrian in goal.

Experienced duo Collins and Noble return at the expense of Havard Nordtveit and Edimilson Fernandes, with Michail Antonio likely to play at right wing-back.

After ringing the changes for the FA Cup trip to Bolton, Palace are able to return to a more familiar line-up with several injuries clearing up.

Captain Scott Dann is among those returning in two changes from the last Premier League game against Swansea.

James McArthur starts in midfield in place of the Africa Nations Cup-bound Wilfried Zaha.

Christian Benteke leads the line up front, while Martin Kelly joins Schlupp on the bench.

West Ham: Randolph; Collins, Ogbonna, Reid; Antonio, Obiang, Noble, Feghouli, Cresswell; Lanzini, Carroll.
Subs: Adrian, Byram, Fletcher, Calleri, Fernandes, Oxford, Quina.

Crystal Palace: Hennessey; Tomkins, Dann, Delaney, Ward; McArthur, Ledley; Puncheon, Cabaye, Townsend; Benteke.
Subs: Speroni, Fryers, Kelly, Flamini, Schlupp, Lee, Remy.
