Allardyce has loads of Liverpool options

Sam Allardyce will enjoy an embarrassment of riches in the dressing room when Liverpool come calling on Saturday.

For with the exceptions of Andy Carroll and Kevin Nolan, the Hammers boss has a fully fit squad for the first time in many months.

Joey O’Brien, Carl Jenkinson and Matt Jarvis are all expected to be fit as the manager enjoys a pleasant selection headache.

Jenkinson is likely to be drafted in at right back but Jarvis can expect a place on the bench given the manager’s modus operandi.

He tends to bring back his players step by step after injury and it would be out of character and a big shock were the winger to start.

Liverpool expect to have Joe Allen back from injury and there may be a place on the bench for Dan Sturridge but there is no projected return date for Glen Johnson.
