Arnautovic could start Saturday against Sunderland with Mame Diouf out with a hamstring injury.

Stoke manager Mark Hughes wouldn't definitively say that Arnautovic would start, but he was the only player mentioned as a possible replacement for Diouf, who is expected to be fit after the international break. Arnautovic is still looking for his first goal of the season and has lost considerable playing time since his last Premier League start back on Aug. 24 to Chelsea-loanee Victor Moses.
