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
      23 days, 10 hours ago

      No

    2. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years

      No.

    3. AndyCook

      • 3 Years
      23 days, 10 hours 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
    B) Maddison,Ota > Tielemans,Robbo(-4)

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

    2. Batchain
      • 6 Years

      Why are you looking to get rid of Maddison?

  3. Corgzzzz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

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

    1. Syd.
      • 10 Years

      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
    C Diop to Robertson if fit and play over Söyüncü

    2. AndyCook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      In the frame of a single gameweek C makes sense but I like A

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      23 days, 10 hours ago

      C

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

      Im in a similar situation. Doing Ci if Robertson is deemed fit and otherwise A

      A

    Pope/Button
    TAA/Lund/Rico/Soy/Lascelles
    Mane/KDB/Mount/McGinn/Dend
    Kun/Vardy/Abraham

    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

    1. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      23 days, 9 hours ago

      What about Kun and McGinn to Jimenez and Maddison/Pulisic

    2. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 2 Years
      23 days, 9 hours 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?

  6. THFC4LIFE

    2. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      23 days, 9 hours ago

      Save but would play Mount over Söyüncü

  7. Fantasy Gold

    Any reason Söyüncü isn’t in the Turkey squad?

    Just rested?

      Yeah

    2. Brainsey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      23 days, 9 hours ago

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

      1. Farns Foxes
        • 1 Year
        23 days, 9 hours 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

  9. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
    • 2 Years
    23 days, 9 hours ago

    Who to sell for Robertson if fit?

    A) Soy
    B) Tomori

    Leaning towards B

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      B by miles

    Virgil van Dijk has withdrawn from the Netherlands' squad for their European Qualifier against Estonia on Tuesday for "personal" reasons.

    Doubt for weekend?

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      23 days, 9 hours ago

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

    2. Fantasy Gold
      • 5 Years
      23 days, 9 hours ago

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

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

      1. Mince n Tatties
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        Don't take it 'Personally'...

      2. baps sniffer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        23 days, 9 hours ago

        Why?

      3. baps sniffer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        23 days, 9 hours ago

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

  11. Here Comes The Son ★
    • 2 Years
    23 days, 9 hours ago

    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
      23 days, 9 hours ago

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

    2. LegsA

    It is not often I am indecisive but... any community input on the following would be appreciated!
    Option
    (A) Maddison and Jimenez; or
    (B) Barnes (LEI) and Lacazette

    Already have Vardy and Soy. Wildcard still in hand

    1. Rash

      Wait for news. You may have to do Maddison to Tielemans for example

      1. baps sniffer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Maddison was on the bench, just noticed above... Yet, still wait for news.

        1. FOO FIGHTER

    Desperately need yarmolenko out.

    Do I go with tielemans and keep 0.8 in the bank. Or change a 4.0 DEF to 3.9 and -4 to get Maddison in.

        This.

  17. Aaa
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    23 days, 8 hours ago

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

    I own Jimenez so leaving towards Soy

    1. POLSKA GOLA
      • 6 Years
      23 days, 8 hours ago

      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

      1. Walcoff life
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        23 days, 8 hours ago

        Rico

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

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

  18. MeatPieSausageRoll

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

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years

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

    2. jtreble

      Consider Jota in your mix.

  23. POLSKA GOLA
    • 6 Years
    23 days, 8 hours ago

    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.

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      23 days, 8 hours ago

      I think Hayden is enough

      1. POLSKA GOLA
        • 6 Years
        23 days, 8 hours ago

        Good shout, he nearly made it into my GW1 team.
        May get Newcastle defender in as well for Kelly actually

  24. Would Ed Woodward
    23 days, 8 hours ago

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

    1. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Interesting. Thanks for sharing.

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        23 days, 8 hours ago

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

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

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

    Which is the better move in a couple of GWs?

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Should i play Maupay ahead of Mount due to pens and being at home?

    Pope
    TAA - Lund - Soy
    Sterling - Mane - Maddison - Martial - Mount
    Vardy - Tammy - Maupay

    Button Maupay Rico Montoya

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

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

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

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

      Really depends on when you'll play your WC.
