West Ham expect top-scorer Marko Arnautovic to be available for their home game against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
It was agreed between West Ham and Austria that Arnautovic would only play in the first of his country's fixtures during the international break - a 1-0 win against Northern Ireland in which the 29-year-old scored - as he continues to manage an ongoing knee problem.
West Ham expect him to be fine for Saturday's derby at the London Stadium.
Arnautovic sustained the injury during West Ham's 3-1 win over Everton earlier in the season but has continued to play for Manuel Pellegrini's side.
Four of the club's five players who have been away on international duty have already returned.
Arthur Masuaku withdrew from the DR Congo squad after picking up a minor ankle knock during their 2-1 loss to Zimbabwe in an African Cup of Nations qualifier.
Robert Snodgrass withdrew from the Scotland squad before their match against Israel, similarly because of a minor ankle injury. The club expect both to be fit for the visit of Spurs.
Lukasz Fabianski returned after Poland's defeat on Sunday to Italy with a clean bill of health.
Andriy Yarmolenko is the club's only international still away with his country. He's expected to feature as Ukraine take on the Czech Republic in Kharkiv this evening.
