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

      1. YEAH PITCH!
        11 days, 10 hours ago

        Hard isn't it

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

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

          1. YEAH PITCH!
            11 days, 10 hours ago

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

    6. balint84
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 10 hours ago

      Son or Salah

      1. YEAH PITCH!
        11 days, 10 hours ago

        Nice call. Think most will go Jiminez.

        1. balint84
          • 3 Years

          Brighton and Arsenal are fighing for something, Wolves not.

          1. YEAH PITCH!
            11 days, 10 hours 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

            1. YEAH PITCH!
              11 days, 10 hours ago

              Good point. Jiminez and Jota to step up?

        11 days, 10 hours ago

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

    8. The Red Devil
      • 4 Years
      11 days, 10 hours ago

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

      1. YEAH PITCH!
        11 days, 10 hours ago

        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 😉

    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.

    TAA is going to be such a good player. Colossal in attack and great stamina when he remembers to track back 🙂

  11. Nightf0x

    Robbo slip lmao

  14. fedolefan
    • 4 Years

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

  15. Kepa's at the wheel
    • 9 Years
    11 days, 10 hours ago

    Difference between Higuain and Ba

  16. Differential (c)
    • 3 Years

    Robbo with the slip haha.

    Demba Ba wouldve punished that, Higuain is a fraud.

    1. BigRedDog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Just old

  17. Business Cat
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Higuain < Demba Ba

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

    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.

        11 days, 10 hours ago

        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

    Tactical or a personal issue with Klopp?

    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
