Amid rumors of a transfer, Marko Arnautovic has tied himself to Stoke City for another four years after signing on renewed terms at the Britannia.
Stoke City continue to remake their image but Marko Arnautovic perhaps best represents the transition from the old (Pulis) Stoke to the new (Hughes) Stoke. Arnautovic blends physicality and a take-no-prisoners style with enough class to lead the Potters in goals from a wide attacking position. His loss would have been a significant blow as Mark Hughes continues to try to assemble the sort of squad that can regularly finish in the top half and entertain supporters at the same time.

In a wild Group F, Austria fail to make it to the Round of 16 as upstart Iceland handed them a 2-1 loss.

Austria could not find a stroke of luck in their group, and it began seconds into their first match against Hungary when David Alaba struck one off the post in the opening minute. They failed to score for the first 240 minutes of this tournament and another bitter missed chance by Marko Arnautovic in the 11th minute summed up their misery. He stole the ball off an Icelandic defender in the opponent's box, but could not keep his balance enough to fire into a wide open goal. Iceland scored the opener and Austria finally broke their duck on the hour mark when Alaba passed to substitute Alessandro Schopf who split the defense and leveled the score. Austria needed to find a winner though but could not, as Iceland made it 2-1 in the final seconds to spoil Austria's hopes, a country many thought could make a deep run in this tournament.

Mark Hughes is sweating on the fitness of Marko Arnautovic ahead of next weekends’ trip to Selhurst Park.

Arnautovic was a concern heading into Saturdays’ game against Sunderland, but the big Austrian passed a late test although he wasn’t able to complete 90 minutes. "I thought he was excellent today," said Hughes who was speaking post-match about the players performance and well-taken goal. However, the Potters boss revealed: "He’s got a problem with his thigh," that's the reason he couldn’t continue. "When he starts to tire, it starts to restrict him." Hughes remains "hopeful" that Arnautovic will be OK for game against Crystal Palace. If not, one potential replacement is Jon Walters who returned following minor knee surgery. The Republic of Ireland international played more than half an hour on his comeback having missed the last four games.

Marko Arnautovic led the way once again for Stoke City, but it was not enough for the Potters to move past Sunderland.

The Austrian international was a major doubt coming into Saturday's match due to a knock picked up during the week, but started opposite Xherdan Shaqiri, who also returned from injury this week. Arnautovic capitalized on his chance in the 50th minute after a scoreless first half thanks in part to Peter Crouch. The forward towered over Younes Kaboul, while also possibly fouling him with a push in the back, to head the ball down for Arnautovic, who hit the pass by a diving Vito Mannone. But just six minutes later, the winger had to be taken off with an upper-leg injury, being replaced by Jon Walters following his one-month absence due to knee surgery.

Marko Arnautovic faces a late fitness test ahead of Stoke City's Week 36 match with Sunderland at the Britannia.

With Arnautovic and Xherdan Shaqiri both questionable the Stoke City attack could look anywhere from formidable to pretty weak. The Potters don't have a great deal of depth in the wide areas of attack that Arnautovic and Shaqiri usually take up. Ibrahim Affelay is one option but there isn't really a strong alternative for the second spot if both fail to pass their fitness tests. This could be a huge opportunity for the Black Cats if Stoke City are depleted going forward and weak at the back (see 12 goals allowed in the past three matches).

Stoke City are spiraling downward at the moment as they conceded four goals for their third straight match and suffered injuries in the process in a 4-0 loss to Manchester City.

There was a dark cloud hanging over the Potters before the game even kicked off as it was revealed Ibrahim Afellay suffered a serious injury in training. It only got worse from there. Marko Arnautovic was the only bright spot in their attack, creating opportunities but his teammates let him down when it came to finishing. Arnautovic would then leave with a quarter hour left to play with a groin injury. Earlier, Shay Given had to be removed to begin the second half with a groin injury of his own. Meanwhile, the defense, which showed composure during the first half of this season, were dreadful once again, with a foul by Ryan Shawcross that gifted Manchester City a penalty summing up their performance. It wasn't long ago that Stoke had a shot at a Europa League spot but their season is wrapping up in miserable fashion.

Marko Arnautovic missed the 4-1 loss to Liverpool last weekend but is hopeful that he will be available as the Potters host Spurs on Monday.

Stoke City struggled mightily last weekend against a Liverpool team that seems to be finding it's attacking footing with Divock Origi emerging and Daniel Sturridge available again. The task doesn't get any easier for Mark Hughes' side with second place Spurs coming to town. With the defense still weakened, the Potters will have to hope that Arnautovic returns because they will need to be at full strength going forward to keep up with the Spurs attack.

Marko Arnautovic twisted a knee in training this week and is rated as a doubt for the Potters' trip to Anfield.

Marko Arnautovic has had a breakout season for Stoke City and the prospect of he and Xherdan Shaqiri, back from a thigh injury, both being available for Week 33 had to be an attractive one for Mark Hughes. It appears unlikely that will come to fruition, however, as Arnautovic picked up a knock in training this week and looks to be heading out of the line-up as Shaqiri returns. For draft/auction league owners with Arnautovic, make sure you have an alternative on the bench and you're ready to make the switch if he misses out as seems likely.

Marko Arnautovic scored from an Ibrihim Afellay cross to bring the Potters back to within a goal in the second half but neither he nor his teammates could find the equalizer as they lost 2-1 at home.

The meeting of two teams who have been up and down all season was bound to feature some surprises. The first was forgotten man Graziano Pelle reasserting himself with two first half goals. After Marko Arnautovic pulled one back the Potters continued to put on the pressure in search of an equalizer but it failed to materialize. Stoke City have been a strong home team this season but they couldn't keep it going against Ronald Koeman's resurgent Saints.

Marko Arnautovic scored two goals to lead Stoke City to its second consecutive Premier League victory in a 2-1 win against Aston Villa.

Arnautovic missed the club's last match but returned with a vengeance, ending a five-match Premier League scoring drought (his longest of the season). After a goalless first half, Arnautovic was the beneficiary of a penalty opportunity after Phil Bardsley, who returned from injury to start for Glen Johnson, was taken down inside the box in the 51st minute. Five minutes after taking the lead, Arnautovic notched his second after heading a cross from Xherdan Shaqiri straight up into the air before heading the ball a second time into the back of the net as Mark Bunn was stuck in goal. Along with moving into eighth, just three points behind a Europa League place, Stoke also saw the return of Geoff Cameron to the starting lineup following a month-long ankle injury.

Marko Arnautovic and his hamstring are racing against the clock in an effort to recover in time to feature against Leicester City on Saturday.

The Stoke City forward played against Arsenal last weekend but picked up a hamstring strain. He hasn't been ruled out but Mark Hughes is reportedly "monitoring the situation" which sounds like it could go either way. Arnautovic has returned to earth after a strong stretch of matches and the combination of his potential injury-enforced absence and the quality of the opponent this week means he's probably not someone you want to feature in Week 23 unless you're in a very deep single-ownership format.

Marko Arnautovic continued his career season with a 93rd-minute match-winner while Xherdan Shaqiri added two goals in an exhilarating 4-3 win against Everton at Goodison Park.

On top of his stoppage-time penalty kick, which he earned by drawing a foul against John Stones in the penalty area, Arnautovic contributed two assists on the afternoon. One of which paved the way for Shaqiri's first Premier League goal to take the 1-0 lead. But the real highlight was the winger's second goal, a stunning, looped shot on his first touch from outside the box that only left Tim Howard motionless as the ball soared over the keeper and just under the post. It was also a day of firsts for second-half substitute Joselu, who scored his first-ever Premier League goal with an equalizer in the 80th minute. But it was Arnautovic who continued to shine by notching his seventh goal and fourth assist of the season.

Marko Arnautovic scored twice and could have a few more times as Stoke City outclassed Manchester City, 2-0.

Stoke made a statement early. Xherdan Shaqiri raced down the right flank in the 7th minute and delivered a fine cross in front of goal for Arnautovic to tap in for his first goal. The two would link up again in the 15th minute when Shaqiri did well to turn off his defender and deliver a sweet through ball that Arnautovic finished easily. The latter had more chances to get a hat trick and then some as the match wore on, but he hit the post once and sent a header just wide another time. The credit has to go to Shaqiri though for being the provider, showcasing the ability he can produce when the moment hits him.

Marko Arnautovic scored the lone goal in Stoke City's 1-0 win over Chelsea.

The forward provided the decisive moment in a fairly boring match that saw Chelsea's troubles grow. The Blues couldn't produce enough chances in front of goal to make a difference and they've struggled with things as simple as passing the ball this season. Stoke, on the other hand, have improved after a horrific start to the season and now find themselves in 12th place. This was by far Xherdan Shaqiri's best game at Stoke so far and things are trending up for them.
