Ireland out

A stomach bug puts him out of the West Ham game this evening.

My guess is that we will revert to 4-2-4 with Gareth Barry and Nigel de Jong in midfield and a front four of Carlos Tévez, Craig Bellamy, Shaun Wright-Phillips and one other - either Martin Petrov, Vladimir Weiss or maybe Roque Santa Cruz.

One other option would be to stick with 4-3-3 with Micah Richards back at right back, Pablo Zabaleta sitting alongside Nigel de Jong, Gareth Barry in a more advanced role and a front three of Bellamy, Tévez and SWP.
