Roman Pavlyuchenko has returned to full training ready for Sunday's Carling Cup Final after picking up a groin injury earlier in the week.

Jamie O'Hara is also available for selection for the Wembley clash with Manchester United after playing 70 minutes of Thursday night's UEFA Cup tie with Shakhtar Donetsk, suffering no recurrence of his hip injury.

However, we do have no less than five players ruled out of the showpiece game through ineligibility - namely Fraizer Campbell, Pascal Chimbonda, Carlo Cudicini, Robbie Keane and Wilson Palacios.

Jermain Defoe and Alan Hutton, meanwhile, remain sidelined through injury.
