Morrison made his first league appearance of the season as a substitute during Saturdayís 3-0 loss at Swansea.

Morrison replaced captain Chris Brunt in the 72nd minute and was unable to have an impact on a game that was already well beyond West Bromwich Albion. Morrison had a dangerous shot parried by Swansea keeper Lukasz Fabianski late on and is likely to slot into the starting line-up after the international break. Fantasy owners should be mindful of Morrisonís regular injury woes and low numbers for both goals and assists.

Morrison's ankle continues to keep him from training, and he is considered a serious injury doubt for Monday's match at Manchester City, the Birmingham Mail reports.

Morrison has just one goal this season, although all three of his assists have come in 2014. That being said, he remains a weak fantasy option, especially with his injury status.
