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. Nov 7 - 2:46 PM

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.

A good shift my Marko Arnautovic finally paid off late as goals by he and Mame Biram Diouf erased a 2-0 Spurs advantage and the two sides ended in a 2-2 draw.

Better late than never for the Potters. Spurs were looking in control, up 2-0 at the break, but Arnautovic showed flashes of form in the meantime, making his way back from a thigh injury that kept him out of Week 1 action. His play was rewarded, albeit questionably as a soft penalty was awarded for a tackle by Toby Alderweireld in the farthest corner of the area. Marko converted and the atmosphere shifted quickly. Five minutes later, Diouf would head home a Stephen Ieland cross to salvage the Potters first point of the season.

Marko Arnautovic missed Week 1 with a thigh issue but Mark Hughes has indicated that he should be available in some capacity on Saturday.

If he is healthy, Arnautovic is highly likely to feature for the Potters. The concern is that the statement from Mark Hughes was hardly definitive on that count. If you need to choose between Shaqiri and Arnautovic then it seems more likely that Arnautovic will be up to speed and ready to feature but with both players at least somewhat uncertain, it might be best to avoid both at White Hart Lane.
Aug 14 - 10:48 AM

Marko Arnautovic looked primed to win a starting position coming into the season but he may miss out on the season debut as he nurses a thigh injury.

Arnautovic had some strong showings down the stretch last season and, with Victor Moses not returning, he appeared to have the inside track on a wide role in midfield. If he is unable to overcome the thigh injury then Ibrahim Afellay is almost certain to start for Mark Hughes. Even if Arnautovic does recover both wide men may get the nod as Hughes looks to counter Liverpool's attacking threats with firepower of his own.
Aug 7 - 2:09 PM

Marko Arnautovic continued his streak of yo-yo fantasy performances for the seventh consecutive week with a weak showing against Burnley.

1, 14, 3, 17, 3, 15, 4. You don't have to be an analytical genius to have predicted an off week for Arnautovic in Week 37 or to predict a big Week 38 either. A real data analyst will tell you that there is nothing "real" behind this sort of a pattern but with so little to base analysis on heading into a final weekend that is meaningless for so many teams and players, do you have anything better to base a selection on?

Marko Arnautovic continued to prove his value as a deputy attacker with Bojan and Victor Moses both out as he provided an assist in Stoke City's 3-0 win over Spurs.

Marko Arnautovic's up and down run of results continued in Week 36 as he put up fifteen fantasy points in the Yahoo format on the basis of three shots on target, an assist, a successful cross and a tackle won. His past six outings have been 1, 14, 3, 17, 3, and 15 meaning managers should probably ignore him for Week 37 but loading up for the final week of the season looks like a no-brainer.
May 14 - 10:28 AM

Marko Arnautovic has been consistently inconsistent and the trend continued in Week 34 as he followed up a meager 3 point outing in Week 33 with a 17 point effort against Sunderland.

Arnautovic's last four weeks of fantasy totals have read 1, 14, 3, and 17. In Week 34 the attacking midfielder contributed an assist on Charlie Adam's goal, four tackles won, a shot on target, two corners won and a pass intercepted. If the trend continues you'll want to ignore that production and leave Arnautovic out of your line-up for Week 35 against Swansea as he looks tabbed for another low single digit effort.

Marko Arnautovic scored his first Premier League goal of the season at Upton Park but fantasy managers shouldn't expect more on the horizon.

Despite a rash of injuries at Stoke City, Marko Arnautovic has remained a secondary figure in Mark Hughes' plans. With Bojan out for the remainder of the season and Victor Moses and Stephen Ireland both suffering recent injuries, Arnautovic still hasn't managed to become a regular. After starting a string of matches from late December through early February, the combative attacker has found starting opportunities hard to come by with only two starts since February 11th. The quick summary: don't overreact to his goal this past weekend.
Apr 16 - 11:04 AM

Marko Arnautovic scored an injury time equalizer to earn Stoke City a point on the road at Upton Park.

West Ham and Stoke finished 1-1 after goals from Aaron Cresswell and Marko Arnautovic in a match that lacked any exciting chances. The better goal was definitely the one of Cresswell, who netted from a beautiful free-kick early on. Both teams had expected goals that were very close 1.0, telling us the result was as fair as it gets, which one would expect from two middle of the table teams that are tied on points for ninth place. The season is fairly over for both of these teams as they are not fighting for relegation nor a European Cup spot, so experimentation may come in the final weeks of the season.
Apr 11 - 12:41 PM

Marko Arnautovic and Stephen Ireland both face late fitness tests ahead of the Week 25 visit of Manchester City on Wednesday.

Both players seem likely to be available as their respective injuries seem to be minor. Stoke City certainly have an opportunity against stumbling City who have seen their fortunes turn for the worse with Yaya Toure and Wilfried Bony away at the African Cup of Nations. Reports indicate that neither returning player will be ready for action on Wednesday so the Potters will be facing a depleted City. Mark Hughes has injury issues of his own to contend with but it seems likely that neither Arnautovic nor Ireland will be among them.
Feb 10 - 9:25 AM

Marko Arnautovic returned to the starting line-up for the first time since Week 2 with mixed results.

Arnautovic has been peripheral to the squad from Week 3 through Week 6 but in the absence of Mame Biram Diouf he was given a start and provided a solid contribution. It was a strong individual showing with a blocked shot, two interceptions, two tackles, two successful crosses and a corner won. In the end though, Stoke City were embarrassed by Sunderland 3-1 which might cause Mark Hughes to continue tinkering until Diouf is back.

Marco Arnautovic is questionable for the Potters' Week 5 trip to Loftus Road with a foot injury.

Stoke City are in the unusual position of having a lot of attacking options on the roster now with Arnautovic, Victor Moses, Oussama Assaidi, Bojan, Mame Biram Diouf, Stephen Ireland, Peter Crouch and Jon Walters. Throw in Steve Sidwell and Charlie Adam in a more box-to-box role and you have a lot of names for few spots. The entire group hasn't been healthy and present on the roster at the same time yet but if Arnautovic passes his fitness test then most of them will be available for Week 5. How they line up will be fascinating.
