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.

                    Jimmy for now but could go Sterling or a Spurs

                          Yup!
                          Will depend on performance & playing time of Sterling & Son in CL.

                              Very true. The big players have to step up now. Not worried by tough fixtures for a captain.

                        Son or Salah

                            Nice call. Think most will go Jiminez.

                              Brighton and Arsenal are fighing for something, Wolves not.

                              1. YEAH PITCH!
                                  3 months, 6 days ago

                                  That is very true. Maybe Wolves will react to their defeat? Two nice home fixtures.

                                  Wolves will be fighting for 7th and European football...would be massive for them

                                Deeney

                                    Bold call. I've had it on him since 35 showed on my page. Unsure I will have the balls.

                                  Captain is easy now, just captain whoever is facing Huddersfield, so Deeney it is

                                      Haha. I wish it was that easy. People on here seem to think he may not play both fixtures. I hope he does.

                                  At least Brighton game isn’t on TV so you won’t have to watch the horror 😉

                                    Would you have skipped CL to watch it if it was to be on TV?!

                                      That match ia going to be whatever the opposite of "an unstoppable force meets an immovable object" is.

                                    Those of us who sold Liverpool players and got in 2 or more Brighton are basically needing Cardiff to be poor at Brighton and get well beaten whilst then putting it up to Liverpool and keeping them from scoring more than 1 or 2.
                                    I now almost expect them to beat Brighton and then get hammered by Liverpool.

                                      Ridiculous Robbo slip and Higuain doesn't even notice Willian was in on the right.

                                      Robbo with the slip haha.

                                      Demba Ba wouldve punished that, Higuain is a fraud.

                                      On any day other day hazard would score either of his two chances.

                                      The 65% of top 10k who own either robbo or TAA (me included) would not be so happy.

                                          Obviously that is for each player of your 11, so the fact it is more than 50/50 for skill, the skill input adds up over a season, but still huuuge amounts of luck decide final position within say top 10k

                                        They hugged before so not sure. Then again Kloppo is a fan of a hug in any situation.

                                        The young ones like luka and morata dont work so they went this way. They should go Liverpool way and get a super intelligent false nine like Firmino

                                      All talking about Robbo slip like its similar to Gerrard Slip. For bad luck Liverpool faced in soo many epl chases in past, this seasons lucky wins makes it even. Mancity deserved epl this season but Liverpool deserved for the decade after all that Suarez and Gerrard did in seasons past
