I checked before you provided date information; indeed, there isn't a 2pm flight on the December schedule.

There are a number of available flights from SHA. If a flight arrives at 9:45 with all the scenarios (flight coming in late, traffic, luggage, etc) how much time would you allocate for the transfer and if so is the direct bus the way to go?
Conservative case (based on your on time assumption): you'll be on a bus by 11am and arrive at Hongqiao before noon. Given that, I'd be comfortable booking the 12:55pm flight (ZH). But, the 1:30pm flight (MU), in addition to providing a bit more breathing room, is really cheap (Y470).

Again, if I were in your shoes, I'd still probably plan on hanging out at the Ramada rather than brave Hongqiao, but if I were to do the bus thing, I'd go with one of the aforementioned flights.
