West Ham full-back Aaron Cresswell is expected to be available following a groin strain.
Winston Reid is set to step up his recovery from a long-term knee injury with an appearance for the Under-23 side next week.
Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has no fresh injury concerns.
Wilder has selected the same back five in every league game this season but he may again make changes in the attacking positions.
@SimonBrotherton: There’s bound to be an edge to this game as it’s the first Premier League meeting between the sides since West Ham controversially avoided relegation at Sheffield United’s expense in 2007.
The Hammers eventually paid a reported £20m to Sheffield United in an out-of-court settlement, having avoided a points deduction for breaching rules on third-party ownership when they signed Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano in August 2006.
Tevez’s goals kept the Hammers up of course, while Sheffield United remained outside the top flight until their return this summer.
On the evidence of their performances so far this season, both sides should at least be able to avoid a repeat of that bitter relegation battle 12 years ago.
West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini: “Two games in a row and two defeats – now we must stop it and try to continue to have a winning mentality.
“Two or three balls can change the score, and two or three games can change your position in the table.
“We must be focused, go game by game and not think that because we played well at the beginning [of the season] that we will beat our next rival.”
Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder on West Ham: “I think they are a very similar club to Sheffield United – a working-class club from the east end of London and the supporters want to see them play good football and work hard.
“We are just going to enjoy going to the London Stadium and seeing if we can keep intact our great away record that we are very proud of so far.”
Sheffield United’s away form is very good but I think this is a tough game for them.
West Ham are very up and down but when they play well at home, they are a very dangerous side.
