False-nine role for Hazard as Liverpool chase the title

Eden Hazard (£11.0m) has the power to act as a differential option in Double Gameweek 34.

Sold by 242,643 managers in the last few days, more than any other player, he has been lined up as a false-nine for Chelsea this afternoon.

Any attacking returns from the Belgian would dent those invested in the Liverpool defence and reward those who showed faith in him.

Hazard’s ownership is still at 30.7% overall, but he is in just 25% of teams inside the top 10,000.

His deployment in the central forward’s position means that Gonzalo Higuaín (£9.2m) drops to the Chelsea bench.

Meanwhile, Callum Hudson-Odoi (£4.2m)earns his third Premier League start in a row as he flanks Hazard with Willian (£7.1m).

Meanwhile, Liverpool line up with few surprises.

Mohamed Salah (£13.2m), sold by 130,000+ managers for Double Gameweek 34, looks to be lining up on the right of a three-man attack, Sadio Mané (£10.1m) on the left and Roberto Firmino (£9.3m) through the middle.

Liverpool XI: Alisson; Robertson, van Dijk, Matip, Alexander-Arnold; Henderson, Keita, Fabinho; Mané, Firmino, Salah.

Chelsea XI: Kepa; Emerson, D Luiz, Rüdiger, Azpilicueta; Loftus-Cheek, Kanté, Jorginho; Hudson-Odoi, Hazard, Willian.

                Jimenez / Deeney of the DGW players. However I’m terrified of what Salah will do to Cardiff. Can’t wait to get him back in in 36.

                I’m so afraid that, if Aguero is out injured I’d probably take a -4 to get Salah in for him

                    Even Mané could do damage at Cardiff. So many great options for next gw

                  Pogba

                        So much this

                        I maintain that Pogba is playing as a defensive midfielder and thus is not a good pick - he is a worse pick than Milvojevic given his price

                        I think i'm selling. He's a big game player, but not sure what shape United will be in after Barcelona, then Everton away, Man City, Chelsea.

                        Surely Moura playing up top or wide, will have more chances to return FPL points.

                        Raul Jimenez OR Sterling

                        1. Hakim Ziyech

                            Jota also. I will likely go Hazard, Jota or Mané/Salah. I'm just so confused

                              Or even Jimmy

                                    I'll go for Raz if he's rested in CL

                              After yesterday being very much a day for the ‘non wildcarders’ today should have been good for most on here.

                              Score checks?

                              I’m 52 after BPS with Deeney, Duffy and Dunk to go - barring an outrageous result in the arsenal game hopefully a smallish green arrow. Hopefully the real fun comes next week!

                              1. Differential (c)

                                50 with Dunk and Montoya to go, will take it.

                                51 with Duffy, Duffy and Ryan to go.

                                48 after baps, Deeney Ryan Duffy left to play. Been a poor week

                                  Still a small green potentially? The way I see it given how yesterday went, if you wildcarded and avoid a red be happy as next week is our week!

                                    Small green of 200 places I think

                                      You must have a very good OR then (subtle brag!)

                                43. Horrible but could be worse given that includes a zero pointer captain and two other zero point defenders!

                                  They play again yet so there is still hope of a big green!

                                  Sadly -8 as well so not so good haha

                                    That’s a great score this week even with the -8. Well done 🙂

                                62, Laca and triple Brighton defence to come - Captained Mane.

                                  Monster week! Congrats! And just imagine if Brighton keep a clean sheet.

                                  Oh the things I’d do for a Dunk goal...

                                  Wow - sorry man. Tough week

                                  Just looked at your team. If you posted that up pre gameweek you’d be told it is a great team. Youve experienced extreme negative variance. Effectively every template wildcard player you avoided scored.

                                  It should even itself out next week - keep the faith

                                  Thank you guys for the kind words, need that right now. I was hoping to tak adavntage within my ML but the ML leader caotains Pogba, has Fraser and Wilson and what not. This game can really be like that sometimes.

                                        Rubbish for me
                                        43 after baps with only Deeney and Duffy to go 🙁

                                        Every decision I was confident in pretty much went against me

                                        So far a red arrow from 71k to 79k...

                                        Another chip another disappointment

                                        1. TheDragon

                                          It’s not over yet. Deeney only 15% owned and Brighton defence 200% owned so a Deeney goal and a Cardiff goal and you could still be green.

                                          I think on wildcard any green this week we should be happy with and launch a full out assault on next week.

                                              Not the way the GW has gone so far.

                                              Kun over Sterling
                                              Laporte over second MCI attacker
                                              Eriksen captain (could have been worse obv!)

                                              Just very meh...

                                                    You’ve got a decent score. Nicely above average. On a green at least!

                                            Can’t believe Woods is going this close - one of the great sporting comebacks from where he was 2 years ago

                                              For so many reasons it would be amazing if he could win the green jacket again.

                                                He’s 4 behind Nicklaus as it stands... win today & 19 majors becomes a possibility

                                                  I’m not sure he’ll ever get there to be honest but I’d love him to get one more.

                                                    I think if he wins one he’ll kick on & dominate for another couple of years, would be pure box office epicness of the highest order

                                                      I would love that but I can’t see it sadly

                                              Definitely.
                                              I hope for a play off with Finau or Molinari

                                            They are meh outside Hazard.

                                              Very much true. What happened to dominating with Lamps, Terry, Drogba, Cech and many more in the team? I really hope Haz leaves to be honest, only then will we actually fix the problems at hand. Also the transfer ban came at the worst time

                                              1. Slouch87

                                                Costa leaving was a dreadful error imo. Granted he could be very lazy but the whole combative centre role which had been so successful had gone . The recent signings have either been average or very poor.

                                            Without hazard they are nothing. I worry for them next year.

                                            Sarri ball clearly isn't working and he needs to go. New centre back , new left back and new striker needed ASAP. There will be major problems next season if things are not shaken up and changed.

                                            1. The Head-Ake
                                              • 2 Years

                                              Sarri ball ain't suitable for an average team.

                                            They played very well for 20 mins after they went two down and I think they've turned the corner recently despite the loss today. Cheek has stepped up well, CHO needs time though. They just start games so slow and Sarri's signings have been fairly hopeless too. Pulisic should improve them but he'll probably play instead of RLC as opposed to alongside him?

                                          B. Boruc in for Etheridge ??

                                          All will play as on bench boost.

                                          First time golf has got me interested since Tom Watson blew the 2009 open with 18th hole 3 putt.
