Morgan Schneiderlin returned to training on Thursday and is probable to play against Liverpool this weekend.
Schneiderlin has been dealing with a few injuries as of late and is currently struggling with a groin problem but a full session of training is very optimistic for his fantasy owners. If Schneiderlin can't go, Victor Wanyama, Harrison Reed, and Steven Davis will likely feature in the Saints midfield. Due to the risk of Schneiderlin starting from the bench, we would be cautious with him this weekend. Feb 19 - 7:25 PM

Morgan Schneiderlin returned to the squad in week 23 but started on the bench as he was lacking fitness.

The midfielder is probably fit enough to earn a start or make a long appearance off the bench, although we wouldn't want to risk playing him in leagues where lineups lock at the first match kickoff. He is also not a great option in the Yahoo! game as he doesn't do enough to be a consistent fantasy threat. Victor Wanyama and Steven Davis are likely to miss out this week although they could face late fitness tests tomorrow.

Morgan Schneiderlin will miss two to three weeks with a hip injury.

Southampton struggled a bit during the holiday period when Schneiderlin missed time and it showed just how important he is to this squad. With him missing time and Jack Cork still injured, Harrison Reed is likely to step in. Reed showed he has a high potential in fantasy but is not reliable enough to be trusted at the moment. We can also see Dusan Tadic drop back into midfield with James Ward-Prowse and Eljero Elia starting on the wings.

Morgan Schneiderlin was sent off during Southampton's match against Chelsea for getting a second yellow card.

Schneiderlin brought down Cesc Fabregas on a breakaway towards the end of the match in what was a clear second yellow card. The midfielder will miss Southampton's next match, which is against Arsenal on New Year's Day. Victor Wanyama or Harrison Reed will likely replace him in the starting XI, but his energy and motor will be missed.

Southampton's fantastic start to the season hit a bump today as defending champs Manchester City showed themselves to be a better side in a 0-3 loss for the Saints.

Thanks to a horrific decision by the referee early on, the Saints were given some momentum and though they started slow, looked to be on even terms as the two sides went to halftime 0-0. Morgan Schneiderlin was removed to begin the 2nd frame due to a thigh muscle issue and perhaps his loss made the difference as City began to dominate and went on to score three times and hand Southampton their first home loss of the season. Schneiderlin is crucial to their success, there is a reason he wasn't a part of the summer's massive fire sale, and the Saints will hope it is nothing serious. With a quick midweek turnaround, ROnald Koeman may have decided to protect his key player in the hopes that he will be ready in a few days.

Following a summer of discontent Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin may secretly be breathing a huge sigh of relief as chairman Ralph Krueger quashed any proposed move to Tottenham by announcing the Frenchman "is not for sale."

Fast forward three months and the Saints are sitting pretty in second spot while Spurs are languishing in the bottom half following a series of hugely disappointing defeats. However rather than sulk on the sidelines Schneiderlin has proved his worth with a string of excellent performances having already scored more goals this year [3] than in 5 of his previous 6 seasons. So the news that the midfielder is a doubt for this weekend is worrying having tweaked his groin against Albania for France. A scan confirmed a minor tear which forced his early return. The player will undergo further tests and treatment before the trip to Villa Park. England under-19 international Harrison Reed could step-up.

Morgan Schneiderlin has appealed to Southampton fans after scoring a brace against West Ham.

Schneiderlin's brace was enough for the Saints to win 3-1 over West Ham. The midfielder has come out to say after the match that he has always respected the Saints' fans even thought he had requested to be sold to a bigger team over the summer. Schneiderlin also added that his future is now at Southampton and he will do his best to continue pleasing the fans. Despite the two goals today, the midfielder is not an usual threat and is not the best of fantasy performers. Avoid him for now.

Morgan Schneiderlin may not feature in Southampton's week one match as there are continuous transfers rumors about him.

Schneiderlin has insisted that he and Southampton have a verbal agreement in place that will allow him to move to Tottenham. If that is indeed the case, he is not likely to take part in the Saints' match this weekend. Schneiderlin's fantasy value is relative low regardless of what team he plays for so we would recommend you look elsewhere for fantasy points.

Morgan Schneiderlin's future is once again in doubt as the midfielder has stated he's not "mentally or physically ready" to play.

Schneiderlin has been rumored to be going to Tottenham but new Southampton boss Ronald Koeman stated the midfielder is not for sale. The move is an interesting one here as Schneiderlin is likely trying to get himself out of Southampton. He has been given two days off to consider his future. If the summer so far has been an indicator, we can expect Schneiderlin to leave the Saints. His lack of goals and attacking ability limits his fantasy appeal and he isn't a great fantasy option regardless of what club he plays for.

Morgan Schneiderlin and Jay Rodriguez are understood to be close to linking-up with former manager Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham

All major UK sports media outlets are running with this story today, with a BBC reporter going as far as suggesting personal terms have been agreed, despite the fact Rodriguez is recovering from a serious knee injury. Schneiderlin has become one of the Premier League's most complete central midfield players and had been linked to Arsenal all summer, so his capture would be quite the coup for Spurs, who have had a quiet summer in comparison to their rivals. Southampton's squad has been decimated since the end of last season, losing their manager and all key players, as the board have decided to cash in on their most important assets. Pochettino, Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, Calum Chambers, Luke Shaw and Ricky Lambert have already moved on and it's looking like an extremely difficult campaign ahead for new manager Ronald Koeman.

Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has been linked with a move to Arsenal.

This move makes a ton of sense for the Gunners. They need a good holding midfielder with Mikel Arteta showing signs of decline and Schneiderlin fits the bill perfectly. He is a work horse in the middle, he wins the ball back, and his passing is good enough for him to act as a holding midfielder. His passing accuracy was 89% last season and it could be even better with Arsenal as teams are less likely to pressure Arsenal than Southampton. Schneiderlin is currently representing France at the World Cup and he is the Saints' last player remaining in the tournament.

France Starting XI vs Ecuador: Lloris, Sakho, Benzema, Griezmann, Matuidi, Sagna, Digne Sissoko, Pogba, Koscielny, Schneiderlin.

Morgan Schneiderlin makes his first World Cup start as France are dealing with a few minor injuries and are preserving their players for the round of 16 since only a miracle would prevent them from not winning the group. If they do win the group as expected, they will face Nigeria in the round of 16.

Morgan Schneiderlin was called up to join the French national team in Brazil for this year's World Cup after Franck Ribery and Clement Grenier were forced to leave due to injury.

Schneiderlin was very happy to be in the 30-man squad earlier this month and has now admitted to be surprised at being called up to the 23-man final squad. Schneiderlin is unlikely to see a ton of playing time in Brazil but being in the squad should be a great experience for him nonetheless. The midfielder has had a fantastic season at Southampton and will look to continue his fantastic form next season. Unfortunately, many of his contributions don't show up on the stat sheet, making him a poor fantasy option.

Arsenal have joined Liverpool in being linked to Southampton's French holding midfielder Morgan Schneiderlein.

With both clubs in need of a younger and healthier holding midfielder and Schneiderlein's strong performances for the Saints this past season the £12m price tag could make sense. Both clubs have been linked to star names to fill their holding midfield need over the summer but with multiple priorities in the transfer market, Schneiderlein could represent a good second tier purchase that fills a need and keeps some funds available for a high end purchase at another position.

Morgan Schneiderlin is delighted to be a part of the France reserves for their World Cup squad.

Schneiderlin has been named as part of the 30-man squad as a reserve and is delighted at the opportunity. The midfielder has enjoyed a fantastic run with Southampton over the past two seasons and deservedly has been considered for the France National team. He is only 24 years old and has four years to improve in hopes of being a part of France's top 23 man squad for the 2018 World Cup.
