Chelsea midfielder could take advantage of Liverpool concerns as The Scout checks in with the main team news for Gameweek 7

The chances of Eden Hazard (£11.0m) producing another bumper points haul in Fantasy Premier League could be boosted for Gameweek 7.

The Chelsea midfielder welcomes Liverpool to Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

And his visitors arrive with doubts over the fitness of influential defender Virgil van Dijk (£6.0m).

The Dutchman has been a major figure for Jurgen Klopp's men, who have started the season with the most resilient defence in FPL.

Liverpool's totals of four clean sheets and two goals conceded are more impressive than any other side.

Interest in Hazard has been climbing ahead of Gameweek 7's 11:30 BST deadline on 29 September.

Over 131,000 managers have bought the Belgian, taking his ownership to 35.8 per cent.

Hazard's outstanding solo winner in Chelsea's midweek Carabao Cup win at Anfield reflected his early-season output in FPL.

He has produced a goal or an assist in five of his six Gameweek appearances and racked up 31 points in his last two home matches.

Should Van Dijk miss out on Saturday, Hazard has the platform to reward his growing ownership with yet another big performance.
