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.

    Best options here to get Mane and robbo with 1ft and 0m itb...

    Pope Heaton
    Taa Lundy Rico — Lascelles Tomori
    Sterling Kdb Martial Mount — Cantwell
    Tammy Rashford Vardy

    - 0.1m short to do sterling >> mane
    - 0.1m short to do Lascelles/Rashford >> Robbo/Ings (-4)

      How can you be 0.1 short tp do sterling > mane?

      1. Pras Scott Talent
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 28 days ago

        12.1 - 12.0 = 0.1

      2. Dynamic Duos
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 28 days ago

        Let me answer this one , simple maths really, one is 12 and the other is 12.1

        1. Sharkytect
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 28 days ago

          Oh my god. Please accept my apologies. I hadn't noticed both of their recent price changes!

          Wow, mane costs more than sterling now.

    2. Poseidon.
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 28 days ago

      He’s got nothing in the bank and Mane is 0.1 more than Sterling

    3. FOO FIGHTER

        Downgrade one of your GK's.

        Have 12/15 players the same as you and also trying too bring Mane/Salah/Robbo

    4. Bad Kompany
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 28 days ago

      Are Son or KDB worth having on wc?

      At first I thought that they wouldn't be worth it but I keep finding that I have plenty of money unless I go for Salah or one of them in addition to Mane.

      1. Batchain
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 28 days ago

        I think KDB is one of those players you just put in your team and ignore (unless injured).

      2. bench boost for every gamew…
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 27 days ago

        Son is expensive so it really depends on how you set up your team. I bought him in prior to that Everton game, not a huge success, but upcoming games he could be some sort of a differential. A bit tricky with United away but then it´s pretty good for a while and those 3 games in between christmas and new year, wow.

    5. Tmel
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 28 days ago

      Pope
      Rico TAA Digne
      Sterling KDB Mount Martial
      Vardy Jimenez Abraham
      (4.0 Lundstram Soy Dendoncker)

      0.1ITB & 1FT. Holding Digne for NOR this week but will likely shift for Tomori after that (possibly then Mount > Pulisic with the funds).

      a) Sterling > Mane
      b) Mount > Tielemans
      c) Save FT

      1. Bad Kompany

      Anyone else think the Liverpool triple up is uncalled for?

      1. Phil's Stamps
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 28 days ago

        If Salah is out then I'm sticking with TAA and Mane.

        1. Dynamic Duos
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 28 days ago

          But is he out?

          1. Phil's Stamps
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            7 months, 28 days ago

            We'll have a better idea of his state after this GW. I hope he's ok, itching to do Sterling to Salah for the Brighton game.

      2. Bad Kompany
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 28 days ago

        I'm definitely going for three. Can't think of a single reason not to.

      3. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 28 days ago

        No. I think it's necessary.

      4. Batchain
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 28 days ago

        Best attack and best defence? No, not really. Only cloud is the blank week.

        1. Zladan
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 28 days ago

          Wrong on both counts. They aren’t the best at either.

          I’m swaying towards a double up in defence than attack though. But might give it one more game because I really don’t trust them to keep clean sheets still.

        2. Zladan
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 28 days ago

          Watford have more clean sheets than LFC this season.

      5. Nunoooooooooo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 28 days ago

        I do! I think it’s all noise for what it’s worth. Double is more than enough. TAA/Robbo & one of Mane/Salah is enough. Too many good defenders to bench and hope you get a couple CS or double attacking return. Stick to your guns mate. I know I am...!

    7. Bruno Bruno!!
      • 4 Years

      if you still have your WC when are you intending to use it ?

      1. Bad Kompany
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 28 days ago

        I'm using it this week but if I wasn't I'd probably use in gw 18

      2. Phil's Stamps
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 28 days ago

        At the moment it looks as though I might be able to navigate through to GW20 without using it (famous last words), but it'll be GW18 otherwise.

          You'll want a stronger bench when your mids get rested.

          if your defenders bring you points you're gold. but as TM said I'd make sure you have a playing bench

          • 3 Years

          I think aurier is ok to have for now but as a fellow owner his red card applications could be a problem. I might sell after Bournemouth because i might want to play him then, not sure. Kind of a ok player to have, he is not expensive and is a decent asset going forward. if he blocks you from a transfer (if you downgrade to free up money for a transfer) then i prob would do that.

      12. Zladan
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 28 days ago

        How injured is Robertson? Reckon he is magically fit for the next LFC match?

        Fancy bringing him in as a double up with TAA.

          1. The Dance
            • 8 Years

            I don't get it at all when we know he's likely fine and plays anyway.

              • 10 Years

              It does cast doubt. He must have felt ok to travel to join the National team.

        2. Ask Yourself
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          You remember how lacazette was playing through an ankle injury for the first few weeks and then he had to sit out for a few weeks because it was desperate for rest?
          The salah situation is looking similar to that. I’m not saying that’s what’s going to happen as Klopp is slimey as but it looks similar

          1. The Dance
            • 8 Years
            7 months, 28 days ago

            Yeah i remember that, but he's been playing on it rather well and this rest over IB will have done wonders, just don't get all the over speculation that's all.

            1. Rhinos
              • 6 Years

          Just have a feeling all these Sterling sellers are going to be burned... Sterling >> Mane is acceptable but seeing some Martial, Pulisic, Maddison swaps and it doesnt sit well with me...

            The spare cash allows you to upgrade elsewhere. It does not make sense to have 2x +12 million in your team, if your not gonna switch the armband between them. Well it might work out if you play a 4-4-2 / 4-5-1 / 5-4-1 / 5-3-2 and have the likes of Tomori, Lund and Soy in your team. But that would still require a very decent team value

            1. fcsaltyballs
              • 4 Years
              7 months, 28 days ago

              Hmmmm, for me it only makes sense if you are going to have TAA & Robbo at the back... or possibly a forward line of Vardy Abraham Jimenez... otherwise I feel like 2x 12m Mids are necessary (out of Salah / Mane / Sterling)

              1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
                • 3 Years
                7 months, 28 days ago

                I have TAA & Robbo at the back and the forward line you mentioned. But it all really depends on what you do with the cash as I said.

                Would you rather own Sterling + Tomori or KDB/Son + Robertson?

                  • 4 Years
                  7 months, 28 days ago

                  well sir have allocated funds well, Robbo and Jim is as good as (maybe better) than Sterling

                  I already have KDB, but i would prefer Sterling + 4.5(ish) than Son + Robbo (have him too)

                  what would you do with my lot?

              agreed... hoping to get some news on his situation before the deadline... I currently have Salah and Sterling, i'd happily switch Mo to Mane if hes ruled out for a game or two

          Henderson.. but he is not eligible next game .. but after that definetely one to consider. Personally I like Gazza as well. But 10 games might be a stretch as Lloris is set to return come january

            does it not been said he will be back in training then, i think that means still some weeks even a month before he can play.

            Hey Rainy, if "towers" gave you a pound for every price change then you would be a pauper atm.
            I thought a change was required so I waited for the tfr and wanted Tielemans for McGinn. Now too expensive. I want an official complaint to Marc Southerns who, no doubt has a hand in price changes.
            Thank you again mate.

              You’ll be disappointed to learn that the concept of deterministic nonperiodic flow is scarcely relevant to the FPL game of our man Mark; i.e. his transfers affect player prices as much as yours or mine 😉
