West Ham United boss Alan Curbishley has hinted he may spring a selection surprise tonight at Liverpool.

"I have got no fears of doing it," Curbishley told whufc.com when asked if he would be worried about giving his talented youngsters a run-out. "Freddie Sears and Jack Collison are in the squad because they deserve to be in it and not just because of the injuries. [Central defender James] Tomkins has got a slight groin strain from the last reserve game or he would be in it as well."
