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. Apr 30 - 12:22 PM

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.

Marko Arnautovic has put together a string of impressive performances as Stoke City have won three consecutive Premier League matches.

In picking up 10 points in their past four outings, Stoke City are one of the form teams in the Premier League heading into Week 10. One of the stand-out performers over that run of matches has been Marko Arnautovic. The arrivals of Ibrahim Afellay and Xherdan Shaqiri looked like they might sentence Arnautofic to a reserve role this season but instead it has motivated him to more consistently deliver his best as a regular starter. Two goals and two assists aren't incredibly impressive after eight matches but his secondary stats like chances created and successful take-ons make him a viable starting fantasy midfielder in formats that reward those sorts of contributions. He's not a high end starter by any means but given that he probably went undrafted in a lot of leagues that's a big step up.

Marko Arnautovic continues to make the best of Stoke City's injury issues as he scored the lone goal in the Potters' 1-0 over Aston Villa at Villa Park.

It was a second win on the trot for the Potters who have left the relegation zone comfortably behind after a weak start. Marko Arnautovic, looking like he'd be a reserve with the return of Bojan and the arrivals of Ibrahim Afellay and Xherdan Shaqiri, has capitalized on the playing time available early due to injuries to submit his best consistent string of Premier League football. In addition to his match winner in the second half, Arnautovic will feel like he was robbed of a first half goal that was wrongly flagged for offsides.

Stoke City attacker Marko Arnautovic is uncertain for the club's Week 5 trip to the Emirates with an ankle injury.

Stoke City have been struggling mightily with injuries and other absences this season and the trend continues as Arnautovic joins Mame Biram Diouf and Glen Johnson as potential absentees for this week on top of Ryan Shawcross' long-term absence, Bojan's continued recovery and the suspensions of Charlie Adam and Ibrahim Afellay. Arsenal haven't been playing up to their usual standard but the Emirates is no place for a mid-table team to go at anything less than full strength if they hope to pull a result.
