Hammers welcome back Cresswell

Aaron Cresswell is in the West Ham squad for the first time this season for the trip to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Cresswell is fit after recovering from a knee injury sustained in pre-season and the left-back is joined by midfielder Havard Nordtveit and striker Jonathan Calleri who have shaken off minor niggles.

Summer signing Gokhan Tore (thigh) and right-back Sam Byram (hamstring) have replaced them in the treatment room while Andy Carroll, Andre Ayew, Arthur Masuaku and Diafra Sakho are still unavailable.

Provisional squad: Adrian, Randolph, Arbeloa, Reid, Collins, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Oxford, Kouyate, Obiang, Fernandes, Nordtveit, Noble, Payet, Lanzini, Antonio, Feghouli, Zaza, Fletcher, Calleri.
