Premier League Set Piece Takers

These tables display a list of expected set-piece takers for each Premier League side. They are based on a mix of information gathered from last season’s matches, the opta statistics, pre-season friendlies and also the player’s role at previous clubs and predicted role at new sides.

The list will be updated constantly as new information becomes available on assigned set-piece takers. It will also be updated throughout the season as roles chop and change.

Players are listed in order of priority for the given role eg: the first name in the penalty/direct free kick takers list is the preferred taker. For corners and free kicks the first two players are those normally employed in the role.
