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.

          The interviewer asking Sarri if Hazard will dribble past VVD was the cringest thing I have seen in prematch. The teams are there to win by scoring goals not dribble.

            Mané, TAA & Robbo: need a clean sheet for the double Liverpool defence to complete a good week.

                Hazard is always so good to me. Scores when i own, blanks when I don't. Sold him this week for Eriksen, I trust him.

                      Would have had 22 from 5 if I hadn't used WC this week, with TAA, Robbo, Luiz, Ramsey, Salah and Haz to play.

                          Deeney haul don't worry :), atleast QPR won

                            Your bench could have a few points on it, Deeney haul I reckon. Gg to QPR though

                            Lloris or Foster? (only one)

                                Good fixtures till the end of season

                              which striker to have if you already got Deulofeu in your team

                              A) Deeney
                              B) Wilson

                                  Deeney

                                    Wilson against Fulham (H) can be good, don't you think?

                                        Could well be King's time to haul again and Deeney has 2 nice fixtures. Either will do well imo. See how Deeney is tomz

                                          I like Deeney's fixtures more though

                                      Wilson

                                    3. Hakim Ziyech
                                        11 days, 12 hours ago

                                                If Duffy blanks in midweek is anyone considering getting rid?

                                                Was thinking of getting a Watford defender in.

                                                      for sure, either Femenia or Cathcart depending on Monday's team selection

                                                      If nothing else to sort out (e.g. Valery), moving one of Ryan or Duffy on ahead of BB seems sensible

                                                        Hazard targetted for fouls again. Nothing new. Fabinho's knee makes contsct with Eden's ankle.

                                                        Hazard has more goals v Liverpool than any other team. Never knew that

                                                        Salah diving again. No pen though.
