Eden Hazard 3 – Mohamed Salah 0
Both Chelsea and Liverpool scored wins on Saturday in the Premier League.
Liverpool beat Tottenham 2-1 at Wembley, while Chelsea beat Cardiff 4-1 at the Bridge.
Both the Blues and the Reds have 100% records with five wins from five games.
On Saturday, the individual star of the day was Eden Hazard.
Hazard scored a hat-trick against Cardiff. The Belgian is now up to five Premier League goals, while Hazard leads the scoring charts in the league.
Last season’s top scorer Mo Salah drew a blank against Spurs. Salah has two goals from five matches this season.
The huge FPL dilemma: Hazard or Salah?
Fantasy Premier League managers are now in a bind over team selection.
Few FPL players will be able to have both Liverpool’s Salah and Chelsea’s Hazard in their team due to financial constraints.
Salah has been the standout FPL player since the beginning of last season.
But should FPL managers now consider dumping the Egyptian for Hazard instead?
Sarri on Hazard’s role for Chelsea
After the Cardiff game, Maurizio Sarri made some interesting comments regarding Hazard.
Sarri claimed Hazard can score 40 Premier League goals this season.
Should that trigger FPL managers to buy the Belgian ASAP?
Southampton & West Ham
Before Salah owners sell the Liverpool star, it’s worth considering Liverpool’s next home game.
The Reds take on Southampton at Anfield next Saturday.
As for Chelsea, they face West Ham away at the London Stadium on Sunday.

Looking at potential exit strategies for Salah in GW7+8.
Would probably want to use the funds on a striker so it's a 2 part move which means 4 transfers to get him in and out…not convinced it's worth that many transfers.
Next week might help a bit.

#FPL There are 2 types of happy managers.
1. who transferred in Hazard
2. who took out Salah and transferred in Hazard. pic.twitter.com/OQQptYHuCi

Had a quick look at possible routes to Hazard.
Would have to sell either Aguero or Salah.
Salah out before Southampton won't be happening so whether I get him for GW6 rests on Aguero's fitness for the weekend.
No moves until Friday though.

Still undecided but the biggest issue with using the WC now would be needing to sell Mané and Robertson to fit Hazard in, when Liverpool have SOU (H) next.
