Markovic finished the 2014-15 season with two goals and one assist after 19 Premier League appearances.

Markovic saw the bulk of his playing time in the middle of the season and finished up the year as a substitute off manager Brendan Rodgers' bench. At 21-years-old, Markovic could be in store for more time on the pitch during the 2015-16 campaign after he played a total of 932 minutes last season.

Markovic picked up his first assist of the season against Southampton on Sunday.

Markovic has been given a four-match ban in Europa League play after being sent off during Liverpool's 1-1 draw with Basel in the Champions League, ESPN FC reports.

Markovic's suspension does nothing for his standing in the Premier League, but he will miss both legs of Liverpool's Round of 32 matchup with Besiktas, plus both legs of the Round of 16 if they advance.

Markovic scored his first goal of the Premier League season during the 1-0 victory over Sunderland on Saturday.

Markovic took three shots during the memorable outing Saturday. He shouldn't be relied upon for goal scoring, although that may change if he continues to average three shots per game moving forward.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Markovic has made 10 Premier League appearances for Liverpool this season.

Markovic has been in and out of manager Brendan Rodgers' starting XI over the last month but that's likely in part to the compressed schedule over the holidays. He's often used in limited minutes off the bench and his value is curbed as a result.

Markovic, as expected, has been included in the squad for Liverpool's match against Manchester City on Monday after being deemed fit last week.

Markovic starts his Liverpool career on the bench but will likely have the opportunity to make his debut if manager Brendan Rodgers is looking for a more attack minded presence in the midfield as the match wears on.

Markovic (hamstring) has been deemed fit by manager Brendan Rodgers, and will come into the squad for Liverpool's Monday clash with Manchester City.

Markovic's role in the squad is a bit uncertain given a crowded Liverpool attack, which may relegate the midfielder to an impact substitute role initially. However, the 20-year-old Serbian is a highly touted young prospect so it's only a matter of time before Rodgers finds a place for him in the starting XI.
