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.

            Holding 2 Defenders from a team is very dangerous.
            Hopefully pool hold & Bobby gets something

              Firmino looks more like a characture every game.

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

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

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

                • 3 Years
                3 months, 6 days ago

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

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

                  Maybe he will stay now you've said that

                    • 1 Year
                    3 months, 6 days ago

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

                    1. BigRedDog
                      • 1 Year
                      3 months, 6 days ago

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

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

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

                              We’ve literally won the league about 20 times

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

                    3 months, 6 days ago

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

                    Glad I got in Dunk so I could bench TAA 😉

                    1. Would Ed Woodward
                        3 months, 6 days ago

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