West Ham United play host to Queens Park Rangers in Saturday's Premier League London derby.

Out-of-form West Ham United face a rejuvenated Queens Park Rangers side on Saturday, with the visitors looking to get off the bottom of the Premier League.

West Ham have won one and lost one of their league games since January and were beaten on Wednesday night by Manchester United in an FA Cup replay.

QPR, meanwhile, have seven points from their last nine in the league, including four from their last two against London opposition - Chelsea and Tottenham Hostpur.

Any Carroll is still recovering from injury, so Sam Allardyce will probably continue with Carlton Cole up top. He is also missing James Collins and George McCartney, but Mark Noble could be fit for a return.

For Harry Redknapp a few injury problems still persist, but there are no fresh concerns ahead of the game. Loic Remy could make his Rangers debut.
