Andy Carroll is contention to make his comeback from injury for West Ham in their match against Stoke on Monday Night Football, Sky Sports News understands.
The 29-year-old, who has scored two goals in 14 appearances this season, has not played for the Hammers since January 4 after suffering an ankle injury.
Carroll has returned to first-team training and is likely to take his place on the substitutes' bench, with the in-form Marko Arnautovic leading the line for David Moyes' side.
West Ham are also hopeful Manuel Lanzini will be fit to feature against the Potters having been without the midfielder for the past two matches.
The 25-year-old missed the 3-0 victory over Southampton and 1-1 draw with Chelsea after sustaining a knee injury while on international duty with Argentina.
Lanzini, who is back running in training, has scored three goals in 23 appearances this campaign, providing five assists.
