Having missed the Gameweek 29 win at Stoke City, Hazard has been sold by more than 63,000 Fantasy Premier League managers but looks set to regain his starting berth at the expense of Willian (£7.0m) in the Blues’ front three.
Despite an injury scare over the international break, Costa has been drafted in by more than 42,000 FPL managers and, owned by 39%, is likely to be the most popular Gameweek 30 captaincy pick.
Subject to more sales than any FPL midfielder (64,000) since the previous deadline after picking up a thigh problem on England duty, Lallana’s absence is likely to mean that Lucas Leiva (£4.4m) joins Emre Can (£4.7m) and Georginio Wijnaldum (£7.5m) in the centre of the park.
Everton make their way to Anfield with defensive concerns mounting.
Manager Ronald Koeman is likely to call upon Mason Holgate (£4.0m), either as a right-back or part of a back-three in the weekend’s early kick-off, presenting FPL managers with a new defensive option in the budget bracket.
Manchester United were handed a blow by the news that Juan Mata (£7.3m) has had a groin injury operated on and will miss their home match against West Bromwich Albion and beyond. There are also worries in defence after both Chris Smalling (£5.8m) and Phil Jones (£4.7m) suffered injuries.
With Zlatan Ibrahimovic (£11.4m) serving the last of a three-match suspension and Paul Pogba (£8.2m) still sidelined due to a hamstring injury, manager Jose Mourinho could turn to the fit-again Wayne Rooney (£8.6m) against the Baggies.
Head coach Walter Mazzarri has indicated that his skipper may feature from the bench, which could hand M’Baye Niang (£5.9m) the chance to lead the line, with Stefano Okaka (£5.1m) or Nordin Amrabat (£5.0m) utilised out wide against the Black Cats.
Deeney has been signed by 30,000+ new owners ahead of Gameweek 30 having scored in five of his last seven outings.
