Harry Redknapp expects Aaron Lennon to overcome a nagging groin injury to face West Ham on Saturday.

The boss reported that the flying winger missed training on Thursday. "Aaron's had a bit of a groin strain for quite a few weeks," said Harry. "He didn't train on Thursday but he should be okay.

"Other than that, we're in good shape."

Wilson Palacios is suspended after his sending off for two yellow cards at Blackburn last weekend.

Alan Hutton played another 90 minutes for the reserves against Arsenal on Thursday night, adding to his recent playing time on international duty for Scotland after a long stint out with a foot injury.

That just leaves Jermain Defoe on the sidelines and he's progressing well from his foot injury.
