Ed001, I have been scouting a few players who might be able to take over the mantle from Hazard. I shortlisted it to a few names from around 30. What do you think?

1) Dybala
2) Coutinho
3) Fekir
4) Depay
5) Richarlison
6) Thorgan
7) Sancho
8) Bailey
9) Insigne

I can share the full list if anyone wants.

{Ed001's Note - 1. Too inconsistent for my liking but he certainly has the ability. Problem is I am not sure he is really suited to any of the roles in Sarri's team.
2. I really do not think he is good enough. He is far too selfish on the ball, wasting possession time and time again with a ridiculous shot that comes off once in every 40 attempts but looks great in highlights. He lacks a bit of mobility and his workrate dipped once he started to become a lynchpin for Liverpool. Something that had happened to him every time prior to joining Liverpool. He starts off well and then gradually puts in less and less effort.
3. He would be my choice, though this has not been a good season for him.
4. Not convinced, he is better than he showed at United, but not sure he is good enough for that kind of responsibility.
5. God no. Nowhere near good enough.
6. Not seen enough of him to judge him.
7. Not ready for the responsibility just yet.
8. A totally different kind of player, he is never going to replace Hazard and take on the mantle of controlling a game.
9. Very skilful, really like him as a player but it would be very short term.}

Thanks a ton, Ed.

I hope your day is going well.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate, good so far thank, how about yourself?}

Also, I forgot to ask earlier, but what do you think of Lozano, Bergjwijn, Asensio and Brandt? Anyone of them good enough to carry the mantle?

{Ed001's Note - possibly Brandt. I like Lozano but he is another who really is not going to carry a team. Would be a good signing though. Not seen enough of Bergjwijn to say and I am not a fan of Asensio. Asensio has the ability but he does not seem to want to work for it.}

None of them are good enough. Surprised you haven’t listed Pepe? Cracking winger and we need a left footer.

I am doing well, Ed. Busy with college. The Hazard news did sink my heart a little, but it was kind of expected.
Are you going to be watching any games this weekend?

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, I get to see all the matches over here.}

BlueDragon91, here's the full list. Btw, Pepe is more of a RW.

Douglas Costa
Cegniz Under
El Shaarawy
De Paul.

We will have four right footers If Hazard leaves. Willian, Pedro, Pulisic and CHO. Even though not a direct replacement the squad lacks a right winger who knows how to cut in like Pepe.

We’ve looked good when changed to 4231, fekir would fit that perfectly IF Sarri would change it but would mean jorginho limited role.
