Which FPL players are most involved at set-piece situations?

We take a closer look at set-piece takers in this latest Members’ article.

For those who are unaware, our Set Pieces tab details the expected corner-kick, free-kick and penalty takers for each Premier League side.

Subscribers can also see which players are getting onto the end of dead-ball deliveries, with headed attempts from set plays also chronicled.

The lists are based on a mix of information gathered from this season’s matches, last season’s numbers and pre-season friendlies, and are updated after every Gameweek as new information becomes available.

In the piece below, we study the dead-ball specialists and their teams in greater detail.

    This worth a -4?

    KdB + Son to Mane/Salah + Maddison?

    1. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      No

    2. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 27 days ago

      No.

    3. AndyCook
        7 months, 27 days ago

        Every chance Son doesn’t start after the IB but not convinced Maddison can keep scoring from the shooting positions he takes and if Son plays I think the first pair could well score more

      A) Salah > Mane

          I wouldn’t do anything this week with that team and wait to see how I feel next week

          Why are you looking to get rid of Maddison?

        I think Man u will score against Sheff U but can see lord lundy causing havoc

          They will score and Lundstram will get booked

          I agree ..think Rashford or Martial likely to score

        1 free transfer and 2.6 m in the bank

        A Good to go and carry free
        B Cantwell to Tielemans and play with Mount first on bench

            Better cs chance this week and Robbo will outscore Soy going forward surely.

          2FT. Any suggestions ? Got a few moves on my mind:
          a) Kun + Donkey to Jimmy + Maddy
          b) Kun + McGinn + Mount to Jimmy + Son + Maddy -4
          c) Kun + Donkey to Rash + Maddy

            What about Kun and McGinn to Jimenez and Maddison/Pulisic

          2. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 27 days ago

            A, but Dendoncker is a good enabler.

            So I would sell Mcginn instead. Would you then have enough ITB to upgrade Lacelles to Robbo?

            Save. Maybe play Mount over one of those defenders.

          Any reason Söyüncü isn’t in the Turkey squad?

            Ota has dropped every week. Do you really need robertson?

            1. Farns Foxes
              • 1 Year
              7 months, 27 days ago

              Ota is bench fodder at present!
              Liverpool’s fixtures are tasty
              The other option is swap Sterling for Salah next week and Oti to a Sheffield Utd defender

          Virgil van Dijk has withdrawn from the Netherlands' squad for their European Qualifier against Estonia on Tuesday for "personal" reasons.

          Doubt for weekend?

            • 4 Years
            7 months, 27 days ago

            Personally he prefers to play for liverpool then a nothing game against Estonia I think

            It really is a joke how many players pull out of games.

            Not sure how to solve the problem but it needs sorting.

              And tbh, he may have personal reasons, we simply don't know. Perhaps important enough not play vs Estonia 😉

          • 2 Years

          Pope
          Tomori, Tierney, Engels
          Maddison, Sterling, Mane, Martial
          Vardy, Jimenez, Abraham

          Button, Otamendi, Cresswell, Nakamba

          I'm thinking just Otamendi > Soyuncu this week. What do you think? Would also give me exact funds to do Sterling > Salah in GW14 if Salah is fit by then.

          1. Here Comes The Son ★
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 27 days ago

            Another option is downgrading Sterling and bringing in TAA. Really torn on this.

              Option

              (B) Barnes (LEI) and Lacazette

                  Start Soy (Brighton away) or Rico (home v wolves)?

                    I would play Soy anyway just for the fact there are scores of top managers who will play one of Leicester defenders and you don’t want to risk your rank

                      This. Rico is first on my bench, it was between him and Mount and the attacker wins for me.

                    I am beginning to think that you actually half believe some of your posts . Must be difficult when combined with an identity crisis.

                              If I could afford it I would lol, I probably do need a few more days tbh , but I will just take lots of painkillers.

                  Thoughts on Ings? Or should I just find the cash to get to Jimenez? Already have Abraham and Vardy.

                    Ings is a good pick, apparently on RMT tool he outscores Jiminez

                  The Cantwell/5th mid question for managers who play 343.
                  I won’t need to play 5th mid until GW18. Lookin at fixtures Villa, S’ton and Wolves look appealing.
                  Unless I downgrade Salah my budget is 5.2 so can’t afford Grealish, McGinn, JWP. I can only see Traore and Armstrong as potential candidates.
                  Question is:
                  A) I downgrade Salah to get Villa attacker or JWP
                  B) streight swap Cantwell to Traore (is Armstrong even an option?)
                  I hope this won’t end up bottom of the page.

                  Mendy started for France tonight and played 75 mins before being replaced by Digne, hopefully he starts for City against Chelsea.

                      Hadn't seen anyone mention it but thought it could be useful info for Sterling owners especially.

                        Exactly. If Mendy is healthy I will switch to Sterling (C).

                  2. Upgrading 3rd bench Connolly to Mousset

                    That's a 50:50. If you are chasing, yes, if not play Mount.

                    Start Lund. Can't see a clean sheet for City & Mendy might not even start.

                    Really depends on when you'll play your WC.
                    The bench is pretty weak.
