Mamadou Sakho, Yohan Cabaye and Joel Ward are fit to face West Ham tonight.

Roy Hodgson's options had recently been undermined by their absences, but they have been strengthened ahead of an important fixture.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Scott Dann, Jason Puncheon and Jeffrey Schlupp remain sidelined.

Hodgson said: "We found ourselves in a poor situation a week or two ago. But Mamadou Sakho and Joel Ward have both recovered, which is a big boost.

"Yohan Cabaye, who I thought would be out for a long period, has recovered too.

"I could give the players a three-day break, which we'd (previously) been unable to do. With our small squad, where players have played every game, we found that one or two were really pressed into service so it was good to have that period without a game, and give them a few days off.

"We're ready for a very tough game, irrespective of injuries."
