Double-digit haul for Hazard as partnership with Higuain clicks

We look back at two more matches contested on Saturday in this Scout Notes piece.

Eden Hazard and Gonzalo Higuain both recorded braces as Chelsea finally clicked into gear against an admittedly inadequate Huddersfield Town, while Brighton and Hove Albion and Watford played out a goalless draw on the south coast.

As usual, we’ll cover the goals, assists, main Fantasy talking points, headline injury news and key manager quotes as we recap the events at Stamford Bridge and the Amex Stadium.

Chelsea 5-0 Huddersfield Town

  • Goals: Gonzalo Higuain (£9.5m) x2, Eden Hazard (£10.9m) x2, David Luiz (£5.9m)
  • Assists: N’Golo Kante (£5.0m) x2, Cesar Azpilicueta (£6.3m), Ross Barkley (£5.1m), Willian (£7.2m)

While it may not be enough to prevent an exodus ahead of the next three Gameweeks, Eden Hazard (£10.9m) at last rewarded his remaining owners for their patience with a 15-point haul in west London on Saturday.

Those who kept faith with the Belgian winger for this encounter with bottom-of-the-table Huddersfield Town will be thankful for a long-overdue double-digit return but given that he averaged 3.0 FPL points per match over the last five Gameweeks this was mere consolation for the month of misery that preceded it.

Chelsea next have meetings with Manchester City and Spurs either side of a blank in Gameweek 27 so Fantasy managers who have held on to the Blues’ talisman have ample reason to take this parting gift and ditch the Belgium international despite his scintillating display on Saturday, particularly given that Maurizio Sarri’s side are unlikely to face a team as limited as the Terriers any time soon.

The counter-argument has to be acknowledged that an on-song Hazard is a threat regardless of opposition – the Belgian registered two assists against City earlier in the season and is, despite his recent dry patch, still the second-highest-scoring FPL midfielder in 2018/19.

Doubt remains over the players (and manager) around him, though, and a comprehensive victory over a Championship-bound Huddersfield side doesn’t yet fully satisfy the questions that plagued Hazard as an asset throughout January.

There were at least encouraging signs regarding Hazard’s fledgling relationship with Gonzalo Higuain (£9.5m).

The Argentinean striker, unsurprisingly, looks a significant upgrade on both Olivier Giroud (£7.7m) and Alvaro Morata, with Hazard spending much of the match in close proximity to the on-loan striker and dovetailing nicely with him in attack.

Higuain’s movement was particularly intelligent, with his and Chelsea’s opening goal owing as much to his dart in behind the Terriers’ defence as it did to the excellent N’Golo Kante (£5.0m) pass that found him.

While some Fantasy managers will hope Higuain can become a decent foil for Hazard, the Argentina international may enter the premium striker debate himself when Chelsea’s fixtures ease off and the next Double Gameweeks roll around.

Higuain’s second strike was a superb effort from distance and a welcome antidote to the laboured approach play that had dogged Chelsea during their recent slump.

Hazard and Higuain recorded a combined 20 penalty box touches and ten shots on goal between them on Saturday and Sarri praised both players after the match:

I know very well when Higuain arrived he wasn’t at the top of his physical condition. Now he’s improving and I’m happy because apart from the goals he’s very suitable to play close to Eden.

On the pitch, they’re very suitable to play with one close to the other. For us, it’s very useful to have Higuain because he will be able to score a lot of goals but it’s also important for Eden.

From the first 25-30 minutes, I saw my football. We moved the ball really very fast, with good movements without the ball, and were really dangerous every two minutes.

Hazard himself said:

When you lose it’s always good to talk together. We did it for 40, 45 minutes [after the Bournemouth game]. We are men. We talk, we did, and we are just happy to win.

That was better than Wednesday for sure. When you lose a game in the week you need to bounce back. We did a fantastic game, maybe one of the best of the season, so we are happy.

I hope we gave him [Sarri] the response he wants. Now we need to keep winning like this.

On his relationship with Higuain, Hazard added:

He’s good, we know, we saw it in the first training session that he is a fantastic striker.

He can score from everywhere, he scored a lot of goals in Italy and Spain. He has the quality to score, and also receive the ball, be a target man, go deep. He is complete, and we are just happy to play with him.

The Belgian’s first goal arrived from the penalty spot but his second was Hazard in his pomp, the winger expertly collecting a Ross Barkley (£5.1m) pass and dancing round Jonas Lossl (£4.4m) to put Chelsea 3-0 up.

The fact that Hazard completed all 12 of his attempted dribbles on Saturday – a season-high total in the Premier League – underscored just how impressive he was.

Chelsea’s central midfield were much improved, with Kante again impressing in his more advanced role by collecting two assists and registering four key passes.

David Luiz (£5.9m) collected his third double-digit haul in ten Gameweeks by heading home Willian‘s (£7.2m) corner in the game’s closing stages and now sits fourth in both the FPL defenders’ points list and for attempts on goal among players in his position.

The man with more shots to his name than any other FPL defender in 2018/19, Marcos Alonso (£6.5m), made a swift return to the Chelsea team after his benching in Gameweek 24 and racked up five penalty box touches as the Blues mounted attack after attack.

Emerson Palmieri (£5.2m) was present at Stamford Bridge but failed to make the match-day squad, while Antonio Rudiger (£6.0m) dropped to the bench amid reports of a slight knee injury; Andreas Christensen (£5.0m) performing ably in his place.

There’ll be little Fantasy interest in Huddersfield assets but encouragement for owners of Arsenal players ahead of the two sides’ meeting in Gameweek 26 given how the Blues found ample space in and around the visitors’ box.

Jan Siewert welcomed back Aaron Mooy (£5.0m) and Philip Billing (£4.5m) to the Huddersfield starting XI after injury, though Jonathan Hogg (£4.4m) missed out with a back complaint and Isaac Mbenza (£5.9m) was withdrawn with a calf strain after only 27 minutes.

The new Huddersfield boss said:

Sometimes I think we have to shoot more; I have to encourage the players to do this more as it creates a bigger threat.

I’m looking forward to having Saturday to Saturday with the players. It is a difficult situation, but I have to face it and I like to have this opportunity. We are still positive.

There were some positive moments in the game, but the fans have the feeling that we are consistently getting better.

Chelsea XI (4-3-3): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Luiz, Alonso; Kanté (Loftus Cheek 83), Jorginho (Kovacic 70′), Barkley; Willian, Higuaìn, Hazard (Hudson-Odoi 77′).

Huddersfield Town XI (4-2-3-1): Lossl; Smith, Schindler, Kongolo, Lowe; Billing (Grant 69′), Bacuna; Diakhaby (Pritchard 84′), Mooy, Mbenza (Mounie 27′); Kachunga.

Brighton and Hove Albion 0-0 Watford

Pascal Gross (£6.7m) was one of our punts in the Spot the Differential article for Gameweek 25 and the German midfielder was desperately unlucky to leave the Amex on Saturday without an attacking return.

The award of three bonus points in a goalless draw with Watford summed up his influence, with the mid-price Fantasy asset creating as many chances as the rest of his team put together.

Those ten key passes were the highest any Premier League player has managed in a single Gameweek this season, with half of those opportunities stemming from dead-ball situations.

Ben Foster (£4.5m) was largely responsible for the lack of assist, with the Watford goalkeeper making two fine stops from Jurgen Locadia (£5.3m): both headed chances being supplied by Gross.

Davy Propper (£4.8m) and Glenn Murray (£6.3m) also sent efforts high and wide from pinpoint Gross deliveries, while Foster later kept out attempts from Shane Duffy (£4.6m) and Florin Andone (£5.0m).

Javi Gracia, whose Watford side failed to register a single shot on target, acknowledged that he owed a debt to Foster for the point:

Ben saved us in the second half. It is not a surprise as he’s a very good ‘keeper. He is not doing anything different that I don’t know.

Brighton played better. We were not good offensively. In the first half, we didn’t suffer a lot, we had some moments with the possession, but we weren’t aggressive offensively.

In the second half, it was worse because Brighton played better with lateral crosses, with more corner kicks where they are dangerous. We’ve defended well, and it was very demanding for our team.

Offensively, we didn’t find ourselves. We tried different ways with Andre [Gray] and Troy [Deeney], some minutes with Will [Hughes] in the middle and Gerard [Deulofeu] on the right. But in our mechanisms of attack, we didn’t find the right way.

While Gracia downplayed the suggestion that Watford were missing the injured Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.9m), there is little doubt that the Hornets have struggled offensively in their midfielder’s absence – the stalemate against Burnley and the 1-1 draw with Newcastle (when Doucoure was rested to the bench) both games in which Gracia’s side lacked much drive going forward.

The Watford head coach meanwhile provided updates on sidelined pair Roberto Pereyra (£6.2m) and Isaac Success (£4.6m):

In some days, Pereyra can be ready. Isaac maybe needs more time. It’s something muscular

Chris Hughton reflected on his side’s performance:

It was a game we should have won, it was a game we deserved to win. The positives are a good performance, a clean sheet. We came up against a good goalkeeper who made three very, very good saves. It was just that bit of luck, bit of quality and a goalkeeper in top form.

Hughton also gave an update on Dale Stephens (£4.4m), who withdrew from the team prior to kick-off:

He felt his hip on Thursday but got through the training.

He felt he was going to be okay; he got up and it was sore. He wasn’t quite up to that level.

As we mentioned in that aforementioned differential piece, Brighton sit near the top of our Season Ticker over the next seven Gameweeks and their home fixtures in particular (Burnley, Huddersfield, Cardiff, Southampton) warrant consideration given that they are unbeaten at the Amex in 2018/19 against sides outside of the “big six”.

The caveat, of course, is that they blank in Gameweek 27 and possibly again in Gameweeks 31 and 33 should they progress in the FA Cup.

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (4-3-3): Ryan; Montoya, Duffy, Dunk, Bong; Gross, Bissouma, Propper; March, Murray (Andone 72′), Locadia.

Watford XI (4-4-2): Foster; Janmaat, Mariappa, Cathcart, Holebas; Hughes, Cleverley, Capoue, Sema (Quina 81′); Deulofeu (Gray 70′), Deeney.

    Can't believe there's no Vinagre for Wolves tomorrow, would have gone well with all this salt.

    In all seriousness, this means Doherty won't get a rest?

      Ryan Giles will play left back tomorrow. So either Doc or Jonny should get a rest.

    Liverpool don't have a great record of destroying teams in Monday night matches. Some of their previous results:

    Palace 0-2 Liverpool
    Swansea 1-0 Liverpool
    Watford 0-1 Liverpool
    Leicester 3-1 Liverpool
    Sunderland 2-2 Liverpool
    Everton 0-1 Liverpool
    Liverpool 0-0 Man Utd
    Arsenal 0-0 Liverpool
    Liverpool 1-0 Bournemouth

      Interesting, if I remember rightly they haven't really destroyed many teams on the road this season regardless of when its played - Bournemouth, Watford - that's all I can think of.

    Was planning Kun to Auba this week,

    But the more I think about it , probably leave it a week

    Arsenal have 4 games in 10 days
    BATE SOU BOU tot

    The hope is they win the 1st leg of Europa leg tie in order for Auba to be fresh for league games

    1. Amey
      11 days, 18 hours ago

      Top4 would be the highest preference to every Top 6 clubs imo.
      So Auba should start all the PL matches.

      1. JurgenRodgers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 days, 18 hours ago

        Emery like the Europa league, guaranteed Champions league spot also..

        Beauty in waiting to Gw27 is alot more information at hand

        1. Amey
          11 days, 18 hours ago

          Yep.

        2. Mo Mané Mo Problems
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Oh right. Well if Emery likes it...

    2. Gommy
      • 8 Years
      11 days, 18 hours ago

      Crucially, you missed Huddersfield next from your list, the worst team in the league who are practically playing like they are relegated already...

      That game, plus Southampton & Bournemouth afterwards is more than enough to convince people to bring him in, me included.

      I wouldn't consider BATE as it's highly likely that he won't even feature in that. A second half appearance at best, perhaps.

      Couple all that with Aguero v Chelsea and then a blank?

      Everyone's different but it's a no brainer for me.

    3. Going Home
      • 7 Years

      Why does it have to be an either/or? I have both and am very excited at the prospect!

      1. ZICO SENNA
        • 7 Years
        11 days, 18 hours ago

        Midfield suffers

  4. Atimis
    • 2 Years
    11 days, 18 hours ago

    Thoughts on this team for -4 for next week (Digne Sane Hazard to Robo Mane Son)?

    Fab
    Robo/Doherty/WB
    Salah/Mane/Son/Pogba
    Auba/Rash/Jim

    Hart/Bednarek/Shaw/Puncheon

    Plan is to do Shaw to Perreira before GW27 and Auba to Kun after GW28

    1. #FPLBhuna

    I have 3 players with gw27 blanks. Who should I sell this gameweek to get Son in:

    a. Richarlison
    b. Sane
    c. Hazard

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 4 Years
      11 days, 18 hours ago

      In that order

  7. Debauchy

    Been playing Fpl awhile and this has to be the most volatile season ever by a distance. Positions in main ML fluctuating wildly ffs

    1. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 days, 18 hours ago

      There have never been so many good options, it's been a really good season so far.

      1. Debauchy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        11 days, 18 hours ago

        This. Gone from 11k in November to 200k present yet still positive. The template is no more just gotta make a few clever/lucky choices

    2. Uncle Avram
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 17 hours ago

      Yep have to agree I just cannot get to grips with it this year usually I finish inside the top 200k my rank currently is 1.6 mill worst ever season.

  8. Bullet Eder
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    11 days, 18 hours ago

    If Fabianski saves a Salah penalty tonight my team will be getting deleted on the spot.

    1. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 days, 18 hours ago

      If Salah slots home the rebound it will be perfect.

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Milner RB, no need to worry 😉

    Anyone else think that from 29 onwards the Hazard/Higuain double up looks very important?

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 days, 18 hours ago

      If they get to play Huddersfield every week, yes!

    2. Vobinho In Wengerland
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 18 hours ago

      Still a lot of money tied up in unpredictable assets. Salah, Pogba, Sterling, Rashford, Jimenez, Auba, Bournemouth assets, there's a lot of value in there and will need to see consistency from Chelsea first

    3. Monkey Hanger
      • 5 Years
      11 days, 18 hours ago

      Checked 10mins ago if I were in a position to do so. Auba and Mane to the Chelsea duo is the way I'm going after the blank.

    4. ZICO SENNA

    3. Amey

      Auba playing Hudds makes him the winner.

        Arse low on confidence though and an away game I would not be rushing in

        1. Amey
          11 days, 18 hours ago

          I agree & not trying to be smart but we can say similar about Chelsea 😉
          I have them both & probably Captaining none so I'll take anything 🙂

        Cheers. No concern for potential Firmino haul vs Bournemouth? It's all that's stopping me from deciding on that transfer.

        1. Amey
          11 days, 18 hours ago

          It could be good move imo.
          Also Auba playing hudds.
          Go with your gut feeling though.
          Just a suggestion 🙂

          1. VeryHairyBabyParade

            11 days, 18 hours ago

            Yeah, Huddersfield are woeful tbf. Bournemouth just lost 2-0 to Cardiff, though. Just unsure if making the Aubameyang transfer would be better this gwk or next. RMT tool has Firmino over Aubameyang this week too. Hmmmm.

            Thanks for input.

      B but i'm speculating that there's a good chance martial comes back into the team now that we've seen sanchez/lukaku perform ineffectively

    Which move would you do?

    A) Sane to Mane
    B) Aguero to Auba
    C) Aguero to Firm

    1. SirT83

    If you were to get rid of only one of the following 2 for gw27, and keep the other for games after, which one would you choose?
    A- Sane, has been looking awesome

    B- KDB, starting to get his form. And ones that happends he probably will be less rotation prone.

    1. Amey

      B

        Read my question again, and saw it was unclear whether you chose to get rid or keep KDB.. 😀

        1. Amey
          11 days, 18 hours ago

          I'd keep Sane. 🙂

    1. SirT83

      A

    2. Rainer

      Auba, hit should pay off over the next 3.

      Depends who else is involved in the moves

    Jason Puncheon - he was my planned bench fodder to come in this week (Hazard/Ings to Puncheon/Aubameyang). However, it looks as if the return of Mooy has demoted Puncheon to the bench.

    Are any of the other cheap Huddersfield midfielders worth looking at? Diakhaby (4.5) & Bacuna (4.2) have both started the last 3 games playing out wide (I think).

    I know Huddersfield are crap, but at least they don't have any blanks (I've already used my wildcard).

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      11 days, 18 hours ago

      i think puncheon will play most weeks. bit of a luxury away at chelsea.

    I hate being forced to make early transfers. Got Taa in but realised I could’ve done sane to mane and get any defender for 5.6 (not liverpool) for an extra -4

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      11 days, 18 hours ago

      taa best value defender under 5.6

    I’m preparing for us Aguero TC’ers to be LOLed at if he’s benched.

    1. VeryHairyBabyParade

      lol right back. Create a lolathon.

        I’m gonna prepare some sharp wit.

    2. Amey
      11 days, 18 hours ago

      I won't do that. Don't worry.
      Just want my TC sane to get 2 attacking return's 🙂

      1. Flapjack ✅
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        11 days, 18 hours ago

        It’s very possible. People acting like the weeks done.. long way to go !

        1. Amey
          11 days, 18 hours ago

          Hopefully 🙂

    3. Syd.

      Is one just letting people know he TC Aguero 😉

      1. Flapjack ✅
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        11 days, 18 hours ago

        I’m vocal enough. It’s known, was gonna TC Ederson originally 😉

        1. Syd.
          • 9 Years
          11 days, 18 hours ago

          Maybe if he was on pens

  20. Syd.
    • 9 Years
    11 days, 18 hours ago

    Do we have any idea when TAA is due back?

    Klopp has been deliberately vague and misleading so far

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      11 days, 18 hours ago

      should be back for bou

      1. Syd.
        • 9 Years
        11 days, 18 hours ago

        Says who?

        I wouldn't believe a word that comes out of Klopp's mouth

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          11 days, 18 hours ago

          says klopp, what do you want me to tell you mate

          1. EMBOLOFAN
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            11 days, 18 hours ago

            nobody on here is going to be able to give trent a call and ask him like. short of that the best info you have is from klopp

            1. Syd.
              • 9 Years
              11 days, 18 hours ago

              He is not a very credible source

              1. EMBOLOFAN
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                11 days, 18 hours ago

                then who is. people on here? what are you asking?

    2. Flapjack ✅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      11 days, 18 hours ago

      Klopp suggests Bou. But we just can’t trust the guy.

      I’ll just keep holding for now. He doesn’t blank and is cheap enough to bench.

      1. Syd.
        • 9 Years
        11 days, 18 hours ago

        Ball work would suggest a couple of weeks away probably back for GW27 against Utd

        1. JJO
          • 6 Years
          11 days, 18 hours ago

          Not really

        2. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          11 days, 18 hours ago

          back in full training next week suggests a good chance he's back for bou

        3. Mysterion
          • 1 Year
          11 days, 18 hours ago

          Agreed, set to return to full training this week according to a not very credible source but what does he know...

          1. Syd.
            • 9 Years
            11 days, 17 hours ago

            Just can't see him being risked against Bournemouth

            1. Mysterion
              • 1 Year
              11 days, 17 hours ago

              Or perhaps West Ham tonight is the one he isn't being risked for... who knows

  21. manu4life99

    A) Save Transfer
    B) Long,Haz to Aub,Fraser(for bgw31)

    Fab
    Holebas Robbo Doherty Kolasinac
    Haz Pog Salah(C) Son(vc)
    Jiminez Rashford

    Subs: Digne, Richarlison, Long

    1. manu4life99
      • 9 Years
      11 days, 17 hours ago

      B is a 4pt hit

  22. 2hotty
    • 1 Year
    11 days, 17 hours ago

    Why is everybody so concerned about whether ageuro plays or not? take the hattrick and move on

  23. Monkey Hanger
    • 5 Years
    11 days, 13 hours ago

    If Pool score in this last 10mins, what odds Klopp ends up on the pitch?

  24. Monkey Hanger
    • 5 Years
    11 days, 12 hours ago

    Pool only kept one CS in their last 6 GW's. Time to ditch their defenders? Or is TAA's return going to make the difference?
