Rafael van der Vaart and Younes Kaboul are back in the frame for Sunday's trip to Blackpool.

Rafa has missed the matches against Birmingham City, FC Twente and Chelsea after suffering a hamstring injury against Liverpool.

Wilson Palacios is also expected to be fit after picking up an injury late in Sunday's clash against Chelsea.

Harry Redknapp reported: "Younes and Rafa have trained all week and Rafa looks sharp.

"Wilson should also be okay and Ledley King has trained well as well this week. He's not fit to play, but he has trained well.

"Overall, we're not looking too bad."

Jermaine Jenas (calf) remains out alongside William Gallas (hamstring) and longer-term Ledley (groin), Tom Huddlestone (ankle), Jamie O'Hara (back) and Jonathan Woodgate (groin).
