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.

It was the battle of the penalty takers as Marko Arnautovic and Peter Whittingham both scored from the spot for the only goals in the 1-1 draw between Cardiff City and Stoke City.

Peter Odemwingie has been a man reborn since his move to Stoke City and while he didn't score himself in Week 35, he was a provider of sorts as he drew the penalty that Marko Arnautovic scored for Stoke's lone tally. Stoke had a rare dominant match from a possession standpoint but they couldn't turn it into much from open play but when Odemwingie drew a penalty from Kim Bo-Kyung in first half stoppage time, Mark Hughes' men had the opportunity they needed. The lead only lasted six minutes into the second half as Steven N'zonzi conceded a penalty that was converted for the final 1-1 scoreline.

Marko Arnautovic will miss Stoke City's match at Everton with a hamstring injury.

Marc Etherington or possibly Oussama Assaidi could start in his place.

Marko Arnautovic is available for Stoke City's cup tie against Birmingham City despite coming off early against Manchester United at the weekend.

Arnautovic, who scored against the champions, was taken off early in the second half as he was suffering with an illness. It's no surprise that Manchester United were able to come back into the match after his withdrawl as he was having a great match against the Red Devils.

Stoke City were held without a goal after their visit to Craven Cottage as Fulham prevail 1-0.

This was a bitter pill to swallow for the Potters who really should have come away from this one with something. They dominated Fulham in the first half and were robbed a couple of times on plays that, after a second look, were penalties, but referee Roger East was apparently not feeling generous today. The loss puts Stoke even on points with Fulham as the two clubs hover dangerously close to the relegation zone.
