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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
