Marko Arnautovic could miss the final Premier League game of the season after leaving the Bet365 Stadium with his arm in a sling on Saturday.
There are fears that the Austria international may have fractured his right arm following a robust challenge from Arsenal centre-back Rob Holding which forced the winger off with Stoke 4-1 down. If tests confirm a break, then it is possible that Arnautovic could play in a protective cast, otherwise Mark Hughes will consider his options with Ramadan Sobhi favourite to come into the side which travels to Southampton. Arnautovic will receive little sympathy from Arsenal supporters who feel his injury is karma following an incident dating back to January 2015. The 28-year-old pushed Mathieu Debuchy mid-air during a Premier League match at the Emirates which left the Frenchman with a dislocated shoulder. May 16 - 6:02 AM

The gap between Stoke City and relegation-zoned Swansea City shrunk this afternoon, as a missed penalty by Marko Arnautovic was the defining moment in a 2-0 loss.

The biggest news of the day for Stoke was the return of Jack Butland, but it was clear the keeper was not completely comfortable, spilling the ball a couple of times, but he did make a class save in the second half, looking the Butland of old. The Potters gave up an early goal though and offered little in terms of attack, with Saido Berahino wasting a golden chance just before halftime. Still, Stoke had a chance to get a result, as a foul on Xherdan Shaqiri in the box set up a penalty kick for Arnautovic. The Austrian international blasted it into Southern Wales sky and,less than a minute later, the Swans doubled their lead, which put the game away. Stoke are still firmly in midtable but may be running out of reasons to play with motivation.

Marko Arnautovic has been better in the second half of the season but not tonight as his missed chances doomed Stoke City to a 1-0 loss at Turf Moor.

The Austrian forward has been one of the few attacking bright spots in the second half of the season for Mark Hughes. He hasn't reclaimed the form of last season but he has certainly been better than what was a disastrous first half of the season. He reverted in Week 31 with multiple missed chances that were among the few that the Potters generated in what was a gritty affair with Sam Dyche's side. Where George Boyd took advantage, Arnautovic did not and that was the difference.

Mark Hughes is sweating on the fitness of several key first-team players and admits his team selection hangs in the balance.

The Stoke manager was speaking ahead of his sides re-arranged Premier League trip to the Etihad this week. "We have a few issues at the moment, and we are going to have to see how the next 24 hours pans out before I can make a decision," said Hughes. Bruno Martins Indi "is extremely doubtful" after he over-extended his knee during the win over Middlesbrough. "Thankfully, the scans show no major damage, but it does look as though Wednesday’s game will come around too soon for him." Marko Arnautovic was absent from training today because of illness and Glen Johnson injured his shoulder "and is doubtful too." However, there was promising news on the availability of Shaqiri, with the Swiss international all set to appear for the first time since January: "Xherdan is fit and available and is certainly in my thoughts for the game."

Marko Arnautovic scored a first-half brace as Stoke City defeated Middlesbrough 2-0 at the bet365 Stadium on Saturday.

Stoke City cruised to victory against a Middlesbrough side who are now winless in 10 league matches. Arnautovic, who has now equaled the record for most PL goals by an Austrian (21), put on one of his best performances of the season at the expense of Boro defender George Friend. The Potters took the lead on 29 minutes when Arnautovic ran onto a ball over the top and tapped it to himself around Friend before slotting home past Victor Valdes, while the Austrian international would add close-range finish just three minutes before the interval. The victory gives Stoke 35 points, as they now sit 13 points ahead of 18th place Boro.

Stoke City has turned its fortunes around in the new year and now finds itself riding a two-match winning streak.

The Potters entered 2017 in the midst of a four-match Premier League winless streak, only to win their first two league games of the season. Mark Hughes' side closed out Saturday's 3-1 away win at Sunderland in the first 34 minutes, scoring all three goals with 10 minutes left in the first half that saw Sunderland fans exiting the Stadium of Light before half-time. Stoke fans will certainly be thrilled to see Marko Arnautovic firing away. The Austrian attacker has struggled to find his rhythm this season with only a single goal to his name entering Saturday after recording 11 goals and six assists last season. But that all changed with two goals in the first 22 minutes, connecting with Peter Crouch on the second. It was Crouch who then put the match away in the 34th minute as the veteran has now scored in each of the last three league matches.

After a reckless tackle saw him sent off in mid-week, Marko Arnautovic starts his three match ban this weekend against Leicester City.

Suspensions aside, this season has represented a major step back for Arnautovic. The Potters' most dangerous attacking threat last season, his effectiveness has taken a major nose dive. Throwing in a second suspension-driven absence, one wonders if this is just going to be a lost season.

Marko Arnautovic was sent off but Stoke still held on for over an hour of play to get a draw on Wednesday.

The Saints had a game that typifies their season, dominating possession but failing to actually find a winner. They had 71% possession, getting 15 shots but only 4 were on target. Rodriguez came on as a sub to have the best opportunity of the game but he failed to latch on to Boufal's cross. Ward Prowse also had a late chance, but his attempt was blocked away. Mark Hughes will be happy going home after his 400th game in Premier League management.

Marko Aruautovic came out of the 2-0 win over the Clarets last weekend with a minor knock. He will overcome that knock and be available to start against Arsenal on Saturday.

Stoke City have come on in recent weeks as their squad has returned to something at least resembling full fitness. Integral to that is the opportunity to have Joe Allen, Marko Arnautovic and Xherdan Shaqiri all available at the same time along with first choices at right and left back. All of the above should be available for the match against Arsenal with Joe Allen boasting a crucial goal against the Gunners last season while in a Liverpool uniform. Expect the Potters to be tougher competition than their early season efforts might lead you to believe.

Stoke City will have some key attacking players back as Marko Arnautovic returns from suspension while Xherdan Shaqiri returns from injury as the Potters welcome Bournemouth to the Britannia on Saturday.

Stoke City were without their attacking width before the international break with Arnautovic suspended and Shaqiri injured (again) but that looks to change as Mark Hughes' side returns to action. The returns are even more important because the match appears to be very much winnable for the Potters with Bournemouth having laid an egg going into the break.

Stoke City will be without one of its stars in Marko Arnautovic after the winger picked up his fifth yellow card of the season.

However, the ban seems to have infuriated manager Mark Hughes, who thought Arnautovic made a clean tackle that should not have been called for a foul while also claiming that referee Michael Oliver admitted to his mistake: "It's unfortunate the rules don't allow you to question it when the referee acknowledges he's made a mistake. It was a fair tackle. I think the guys have spoken to Michael Oliver and I think he acknowledges that maybe he's made a mistake." Because of the ban, the Austrian will now miss the club's trip to West Ham this weekend.

Marko Arnautovic scored a brace and Joe Allen answered with a goal of his own as Wales and Austria played to a 2-2 draw in World Cup qualifying on Thursday.

It was Joe Allen, in the scoring form of his career since the Euros this past summer, who opened the scoring with a 22nd minute goal. Club teammate Arnautovic pegged Allen's goal back with a 28th minute goal that will hopefully help him get on back after a rotten start to the season at the Britannia. Spurs' Kevin Wimmer put Wales back on top by a goal in first half stoppage time. It was again Arnautovic to the rescue early in the second half as his second goal yielded the final 2-2 scoreline. Mark Hughes and fantasy managers everywhere will hope this is the spark Arnautovic needed to return to his strong form of last season.

Mark Hughes' side crashed out of the EFL Cup losing a 2-1 decision to visiting Hull City with a stoppage time goal deciding it.

The Potters remain winless on the season in the Premier League and the loss to a newly promoted club in the EFL Cup came despite Hughes fielding an almost full strength starting eleven. Of the starters, only Lee Grant and Ramadan Sohbi were not regulars in the league. Slumping Marko Arnautovic opened the scoring in the 24th minute but saw his goal canceled out at the end of the first half by Ryan Mason. It looked like it might go to extra time before Markus Henriksen scored in the first minute of stoppage time for the winner.

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.
