Shaqiri (hamstring) is starting Saturday against Sunderland.

Shaqiri suffered his injury last weekend but his removal from the game was considered precautionary and he'll slot right back into the starting lineup against a vulnerable Sunderland defense.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Shaqiri was subbed off in the second half of Saturday's match against Southampton because of tightness in his hamstring, manager Mark Hughes said. "He had a little tightness in his hamstring to be fair, and that was the reasoning behind taking him off when he did," Hughes said. "He wanted to go out and play the second half but it was important that we protected him a little bit, which is what we did."

Shaqiri has been a steady performer for the Potters this season after joining from Inter Milan, though he hasn't been nearly the goal-scorer that many may have expected. Ibrahim Afellay replaced Shaqiri during Saturday's match, and he would likely move into the starting lineup if Shaqiri has to miss any additional time.

Shaqiri (hamstring) is starting Monday against Swansea City.

Shaqiri dealt with tightness in his hamstring over the international break, but it was never considered serious and he'll slot back into the starting lineup for the Potters.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Shaqiri (hamstring) is expected to play Monday against Swansea City, manager Mark Hughes said Thursday.

Shaqiri felt tightness in his hamstring while playing for Switzerland earlier this week, but the issue is not considered serious and he is expected to train fully Saturday and Sunday before Monday's match. Shaqiri has been a bit of a fantasy disappointment so far this season, with no goals and only one assist in five Premier League appearances, and while he could see an increase in each, his upside is a bit limited.

Stoke manager Mark Hughes said that Shaqiri (hamstring) must train on Friday in order to remain in contention to play against Aston Villa on Saturday, reports the Daily Mail.

The midfielder has not trained this past week due to the injury, and he will only be selected if he is able to take part in Friday's training with no ill effects.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Shaqiri was taken off at halftime of Saturday's match against Bournemouth because of a hamstring injury.

Shaqiri has been a consistent starter since coming over from Inter Milan, but with so many midfield fantasy options at Stoke, he can get a bit overlooked. He'll likely undergo additional scans to help determine the severity of the injury, with a timeline for a return coming after that.

Shaqiri made his Stoke City debut Saturday and assisted the Potters' lone goal against Norwich City.

Shaqiri, who recently joined Stoke from Inter Milan, curled in a free-kick to set up teammate Mame Diouf for a goal just 11 minutes into his first game for the Potters. A gifted attacker, Shaqiri lasted the entire match Saturday and could be at the center of Stoke's attack going forward this season, making him one to watch in fantasy circles.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Shaqiri served his one-match ban and is expected to make his Premier League debut Saturday against Norwich City.

Shaqiri was apparently penciled in to play last weekend against Tottenham until the FA handed down the one-match ban, which he originally picked up during the Coppa Italia last season with Inter Milan. However, he's had a full week of training and could very well slot right into the starting lineup against Norwich.
