Schneiderlin is a doubt for Southampton's match with Aston Villa on Monday evening due to a groin injury picked up on international duty with France, manager Ronald Koeman confirmed.

Schneiderlin has been on fantastic form for the Saints so far this season, contributing three goals from midfield. The Frenchman is a key part of Southampton's side and Koeman will be keen to include him if he is fit.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Schneiderlin has insinuated that he could leave Southampton next season if the team does not qualify for the Champions League, according to Sky Sports.

The midfielder was close to heading to Tottenham last summer, but he has remained with Southampton. His comments suggested that he wants to play for a larger club and has ambitions of European competition on a regular basis.

Schneiderlin scored a wonderful goal that curled into the top corner from long-range to finish Southampton's 4-0 defeat of Newcastle on Saturday.

Schneiderlin followed his surprising two-goal exploit versus West Ham with another score in his next Premier League match Saturday. A defensive midfielder, Schneiderlin notched two goals all of last season, so he'll be pleased by already topping that mark this term. Nonetheless, his offensive potential remains limited, despite this early season flurry.

Schneiderlin completed Southampton's season opening loss to Liverpool on Sunday, but earned a yellow card along the way.

Schneiderlin has been linked with numerous clubs throughout this summer's transfer window, but at the moment, appears poised to stay at Southampton despite whatever qualms he may have with the club. An emerging defensive midfielder, Schneiderlin is probably of more value to real-life teams than his is to fantasy owners, since he doesn't offer much fantasy production outside of midfield clean sheets.

Schneiderlin is in the starting XI for Southampton's Premier League opener at Anfield on Sunday.

There was speculation that Schneiderlin may be held out due to his links to numerous clubs this summer, including Liverpool, but manager Ronald Koeman has decided to stick with him, at least for Gameweek 1. Nevertheless, Schneiderlin plays more of a defensive role, which will surely be needed against the powerful Liverpool attack.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Schneiderlin, who has been the subject of rumors linking him to a move to Tottenham, may sit Southampton's Premier League opener against Liverpool on Sunday. Manager Ronald Koeman said Scheniderlin had "a very good week of training," but he would wait until after Saturday's training session to make the decision.

Schneiderlin plays mostly as a defensive midfielder, which limits his fantasy value given that he doesn't get involved a lot in the attack. A move to Tottenham would raise his fantasy level a bit, but there are juicier options out there.

Schneiderlin, who had been dealing with a hip injury, started and played all 90 minutes of Saturday's match against Swansea. Schneiderlin took three shots, with one landing on goal, but failed to score for the fifth game in a row.

Schneiderlin has two goals and one assist this season in 32 appearances, making him a fairly weak fantasy option.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Schneiderlin missed last weekend's match against Tottenham with a psoas issue and is considered doubtful for Saturday's match against Newcastle, the club's official web site reports.

Schneiderlin scored his second goal this season against Norwich on March 15, the last match that he's played for the Saints. His fantasy value is quite limited and he is deservedly overshadowed by Adam Lallana in midfield.
