London - Midfielder Alex Song is expected to be fit to face his former club when the Hammers face Arsenal on Saturday.

West Ham are likely to be without striker Enner Valencia, who cut his big toe after an accident at home and centre-back Winston Reid is out with a hamstring problem.

Hammers manager Sam Allardyce said: "Enner has had an accident at home and has cut his big toe quite severely on a broken cup.

"We're not exactly certain but we think it will be too soon for him be considered for the game at Arsenal on Saturday.

"It was a freak accident at a time when we could have done without it due to our lack of available strikers."

"I watched Arsenal's game away at Manchester United and everyone could see the quality they have," Allardyce said.

"We know how difficult it is at the Emirates, where we've actually gone in front a few times but not managed to hold on.

"We'll go there and give it our best shot and see what happens. We'll try and do what we did against Chelsea and see if that's good enough to get us a result."

Arsenal host West Ham United at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday. The match kicks off at 17:00.
