West Ham United have expressed their disappointment that Scott Parker hasn't been released from the England squad after their win over Wales on Saturday, report the Evening Standard.
Chelsea trio John Terry, Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard, Manchester United's Wayne Rooney and Tottenham Hotspur defender Michael Dawson have all returned to their clubs with the respective clubs' Champions League ties taking place next week.
But the Hammers are registered their disappointment that Parker wasn't among those, given their plight at the bottom of the Barclays Premier League.
"We are disappointed that Scott hasn't been released," said a club source.
"Fighting relegation to clubs like ours is just as important as the 'big' clubs playing in the Champions League. We are hopeful, though, that different players will be used tomorrow and that Scott will come back to us fit and well."
Parker's performance at the Millennium Stadium prompted many to hail the midfielder as the missing link in England's midfield, as he stared in the holding role alongside Jack Wilshere.
However, despite his impressive showing, a performance in-keeping with his season thus far, West Ham are worried Parker will pick up an injury that could rule him out for a period of their relegation run-in.
The Hammers are just one place above the drop zone on goal difference, and host league leaders Manchester United on Saturday.
Meanwhile, goalkeeper Robert Green is expected to make his first start in an England shirt since he fumbled Clint Dempsey's effort against USA in last year's World Cup.
The 31-year-old's inclusion is set to be one of seven changes in Fabio Capello's side from England's win over Wales.
