Michail Antonio was left out of West Ham's squad to face Crystal Palace for a breach of discipline.
Manager David Moyes dropped the fit-again forward after he was late for a team meeting, despite the depleted Hammers missing nine players through injury and suspension.
West Ham battled to a 1-1 draw at London Stadium on Tuesday night, but the result did little to appease a disgruntled Moyes.
"For disciplinary reasons he [Antonio] was not involved tonight," Moyes said. "He turned up late this morning for a meeting and it wasn't the first time. I'm not having it at the club, I've said right from the start what it's going to be like.
"It's too often so I didn't involve him tonight, otherwise I would have probably tried to get him on the bench. He's apologised for it and because of that we move on. He'll be back training tomorrow morning. On time!
"He's got a chance of being in the squad [at Brighton on Saturday], but he would have been a big help for us tonight."
