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.

  22. fusen

    As someone with only Robertson playing and mane on my bench, I really really want this game to end now 😛

    1. Revival
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      11 days, 10 hours ago

      Liverpool haven't lost a home league game in like 2 years, why would you bench Mane?

      1. fusen
        • 7 Years
        11 days, 10 hours ago

        Can only play 11 players

  23. Differential (c)

    Been impressed with RLC. Looks very good!

    1. BigRedDog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      He looks really really good yeah

  25. Leo10

    • 5 Years
    11 days, 10 hours ago

    Kante is a great defensive mid but watching him try and play with the ball is painful.

    1. dark91
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 10 hours ago

      Exactly this. No idea why he is allowed to go forward with the ball!!

  26. The 5% Team
    11 days, 10 hours ago

    He might be a troll...but I'm gonna miss Hazard in the PL next season

    1. BigRedDog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 days, 10 hours ago

      He's not going anywhere

      1. XabiAlonso
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 days, 10 hours ago

        Maybe he will stay now you've said that

        1. BigRedDog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          11 days, 10 hours ago

          Where's he going? Haven't heard the news

          1. BigRedDog
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            11 days, 10 hours ago

            Other than that he's very happy and Chelsea have a transfer ban.

          2. MeatPieSausageRoll

            Utd/Madrid

            1. dark91

              11 days, 10 hours ago

              United as in Manchester United?
              That is a nice joke 😀

              11 days, 10 hours ago

              0% of United.
              Why go to a smaller club?

              1. MeatPieSausageRoll
                11 days, 10 hours ago

                We’ve literally won the league about 20 times

      2. Would Ed Woodward
        11 days, 10 hours ago

        Wanna bet?

  27. Sif
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Might double up Salah & Mane GW35 to the end...

  28. fedolefan
    • 4 Years
    11 days, 10 hours ago

    Seen some signs of Sarriball once Liverpool went two up. That last play with Willian and Kante was quite good.

  29. Dakes.
    • 2 Years

  30. Flapjack ✅

    Glad I got in Dunk so I could bench TAA 😉

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      11 days, 10 hours ago

      I played Doherty instead, even worse! I think he has incriminating pictures of me, I can never bench him.
