Aaron Cresswell has travelled with the West Ham squad to Newcastle but will play no part today.

Cresswell - who has been a vital player for David Moyes this season - was forced off with a hamstring problem against Leicester last weekend, but the damage was not as bad as first feared.

Angelo Ogbonna is back for the Hammers but there is no Arthur Masuaku in the matchday squad as Ben Johnson comes in.
