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.

          Willian dribbling away from VvD one on one in thay first half. But no one will talk about it cuz Willian skies it and its against the "VvD is best ITW" narrative.

            Check your stats and stop being biaised.. no player has dribbled past VvD this season.

                I think it's Fonte and Liverpool got it wrong twice .

                Not saying VvD isn't a great defender btw haha. Certianly top 5 in the world.

                  And I said dribble away, not past. I thought I worded that correctly.

              Liverpool are annoying. So defensive.

                Doing what they can. Think theyre doing okay, considering the opposition. Was never going to be a steamroll.

                  Watch Man City. They are relentless in attack. Liverpool aren't as good.

                  They'll have to take the initiative if it stays same till 70 minutes mark.
                  Must be very tense atmosphere there 😮

                      Chelsea have nothing to lose

                        Except for potentially a Champions League spot.

                            Chelsea & Spurs should get that anyway
                            United & Arsenal not playing well atm

                              The results are what matter, its far from certain.

                    What would you do with this for the next gw? I need to transfer out one Brighton defender. Also I would like Moura.

                        If nothing happens I'd get a Watford Defender/ Kun for Lukaku if possible
