The Chelsea midfielder appeals to Sutherns for a number of reasons.
When asked on the latest FPL Show whether Hazard would be the one player to recommend for managers, Sutherns replies: “I think he would. He's the one that's most assured of starts.
"That's what he gives you over Christmas. He's the one in form, he's a decent price, he's on penalties."
The Belgian also has a run of promising fixtures.
Of Chelsea’s next seven matches, four are rated just two in the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR).

And while four of those fixtures are away, Hazard is producing returns this season on the road and not just at Stamford Bridge.
"He's a different kind of player now," Sutherns said.
"That was absolutely the case: he was always very strong at Stamford Bridge and on the road not as convincing but it makes no difference now."
