Set Piece Takers

Which FPL players are on penalties and set-piece duties at their clubs?

We take a closer look at Fantasy Premier League (FPL) set-piece and penalty takers in this 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.

WHO TAKES CORNERS, PENALTIES AND FREE-KICKS?

(click the above image to expand)

The lists above 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 most Gameweeks as new information becomes available.

All the corner-takers in the above table have been responsible for at least one corner this season, while the direct free-kick and penalty takers have either chanced their arm at least once in 2021/22 or were prominently involved at these set plays in the previous season.

They are ordered so that the main candidates are listed first. For example, Everton boss Rafael Benitez confirmed after Gameweek 3 that Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£8.0m) and Richarlison (£7.4m) were first and second respectively for penalties. Andros Townsend (£5.6m) took a spot-kick in Gameweek 6 with Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison absent, while Demarai Gray (£5.8m) scored from 12 yards in pre-season with all three of the above not on the field.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS AT SET PLAYS

Raphinha "expected back" in time for Gameweek 8 as Sarr's FPL appeal wanes

From Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) on corners at Liverpool to James Ward-Prowse (£6.4m) on penalties at Southampton, many of us will be familiar with the bulk of the names in the above table.

But having refreshed the list over the international break, we thought it was worth bringing a few recent developments to your attention.

£4.5m-ISH MIDFIELDERS ON SET-PIECE DUTIES

Billy Gilmour‘s (£4.5m) stock is falling after three benchings in the last four Gameweeks but Norwich City teammate Mathias Normann (£4.5m) has assumed control of set-piece duties since his arrival, taking eight corners and four direct free-kicks.

Douglas Luiz (£4.6m) has also been heavily involved at Aston Villa over the last three Gameweeks, taking 12 corners and two direct free-kicks – although the limited involvement of Leon Bailey (£6.4m) and Emiliano Buendia (£6.4m) may have something to do with that.

GALLAGHER DOWN THE PECKING ORDER?

Conor Gallagher (£5.7m) has caught the eye this season, with set-piece responsibilities part of his FPL appeal. But the return to the starting XI of Luka Milivojevic (£5.4m) saw the Chelsea loanee play second fiddle to the Serb at corners in Gameweek 6. Michael Olise (£5.4m) then took one last weekend, with Milivojevic on the field but Gallagher off it.

BRUNO BACK ON CORNERS

Iffy form and fixtures has seen many of us offload Bruno Fernandes (£11.9m) in FPL. The Portuguese playmaker may still be on penalties at United, however, and he has returned to corner-taking duties over the last few weeks, taking nine kicks to Shaw’s six in Gameweeks 6-7.

WHO IS ON SET PLAYS AT SOUTHAMPTON?

Ward-Prowse will miss Southampton’s next two league games and such is his dominance at dead-ball situations over the last few years that it’s anyone’s guess who fills in for him – on penalties especially – while he’s out.

Romain Perraud (£4.9m) is the only other Saints player who has taken a corner in the league this season, while Nathan Redmond (£5.9m) and Theo Walcott (£5.8m) were involved on set plays in pre-season.

HOW MANY GOALS ARE SCORED FROM SET-PIECE SITUATIONS?

Season% of PL goals scored from set plays% of PL goals scored from penalties
2021/2220.1%7.5%
2020/2119.2%10.0%
2019/2022.0%7.0%
2018/1923.2%7.8%
2017/1821.9%5.5%

Relatively few free-kicks and corners get converted – just 7.3% of the 506 attempts from dead-ball situations in 2021/22 have found the back of the net – but they still account for a decent chunk of the Premier League goals scored.

Looking at the table above, an average of around one in five of the goals scored in the English top flight are from set plays – a not insignificant figure.

And that doesn’t include penalties: 7.5% of the goals scored this season, for example, came from 12 yards.

So while a player being responsible for the odd corner or two may not be sufficient reason enough to acquire their services in Fantasy Premier League, an added goal threat or increased assist potential from dead-ball situations can only boost a particular asset’s appeal.

WHICH TEAMS ARE CREATING THE MOST CHANCES FROM SET PLAYS?

Given that Manchester City, Liverpool and Manchester United can count on the likes of Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m), Alexander-Arnold and Luke Shaw (£5.4m) to whip in their set-piece deliveries, it’s no surprise to see those teams top the table above.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have had more attempts on goal from set-piece situations (49) than any other club, while no-one can better their tally of five goals scored from free-kicks and corners.

Shaw’s owners have been left cursing the left-back’s lack of output: despite racking up 33 efforts, United are one of five teams who haven’t scored a single goal from dead-ball situations.

Aston Villa’s appointment of a new dead-ball coach is seemingly paying dividends: they are second only to Liverpool for efforts from set plays and five of their attempts have come from throw-ins.

Brighton are proving to be most accurate from corners. 61% of their deliveries are finding a man, and usually that man is Shane Duffy (£4.3m): he has had more attempts from set plays (13) than any other player this season.

      Does Farke want out of Norwich so he's leaving his better plays on the bench

    Who is the most nailed among Gray, Doucoure, and Townsend?

    1. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      12 days, 22 hours ago

      Much of a muchness atm, imo. If you're looking for who will spend the most time on the pitch then Doucoure looks your man.

    2. Gabistuta

      Gray and Doucoure. Townsend tbc when DCL/Rich are back but on current form hard to drop any

    Sarr and Greenwood to Raph/Saka and Foden for a hit?

    1. waldo666

      No.

      1. MountainBeach

        Sarr to one of Raph/Saka, then?

        1. waldo666
          • 11 Years
          12 days, 22 hours ago

          Raph looks like he may miss this week so maybe Saka, could look to shift Greenwood to Raph for free the week after.

          1. MountainBeach
            • 9 Years
            12 days, 20 hours ago

            I've gotten in Saka. But really tempted for Greenwood to Foden. Think Foden will get big returns over the coming weeks.

    New owner bounce for Newcastle next match vs Spurs??

      Newcastle are Spurs bogey team... they need to get rid of Bruce though, will be weird the euphoria of new ownership but stuck with him as the manager first game, even if they just give it to Jones on a caretaker role

        Personally don't see that as a horror show at all. Keep FT and make two moves after next GW. Ronnie to Kaku, and Greenwood to a good mid price mid. Use funds to upgrade defender to City Def.

        Bruno from GW14 is going to be insane

        Might be 11.5 by that stage

          If he is, it's more than likely he's been blanking

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • 11 Years
            12 days, 14 hours ago

            Blanking is fine though as long as he keeps doing what he's been doing - creating chances, receiving chances, and taking penalties - and his next 6 includes Chelsea, City, Liverpool, Leciester, Spurs so a bit of a downturn is to be expected

            It'll be very difficult for him to blank through a run that reads like GW15 onwards reads though

    • MagicMessi
      • 9 Years
      12 days, 20 hours ago

      You think Mbeumo can hold price till next week ? need to do Alonso+Sissoko to ThiagoSilva(5.4 max) + Mbeumo just 0.0 itb ...Whats the situation with Alonso you reckon he will start?

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        12 days, 20 hours ago

        Not sure.
        On the index, I imagine it will show him as rising late next week due to WCs, however, he may not. Hard to tell.

      2. Going Home

        Be careful - can see Thiago not starting next GW after Brazil’s very late third game of the IB

    • Bruno Commando
      • 7 Years
      12 days, 20 hours ago

      How does this WC draft look? Thinking of Son + ESR -> Foden + Raph + 1.0 due to Son's tougher looking fixtures.

      Ramsdale // Foster
      TAA Dias Cancelo Rudi // Manquillo
      Salah Son Mbeumo // ESR Luiz
      Lukaku Antonio Hwang

      0.0 ITB

      1. jon.terry.tfh

        I got Son from my WC last weekend and honestly his fixtures look quite decent. newcastle and then west ham who has been terrible at the back recently. I like your squad, just not sure about Hwang and his long term future.

        1. Bruno Commando
          • 7 Years
          12 days, 17 hours ago

          Thanks for the inputs! Tinkering with a Toney option but not sure if it's worth it since I will need to downgrade my defence and midfield.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        think I would switch Dias for White or Brighton and go 343 and upgrade ESR/Mbeumo to Raphinha if the money works

        1. Bruno Commando
          • 7 Years
          12 days, 17 hours ago

          Ah that can work too. Raphina's run of fixtures is great even though he will miss out on GW8.

      3. sandman58
        • 2 Years

        I reckon Vardy is a better option than Son
        Spurs are low scorers

        1. Bruno Commando

          Yes I think so too but I have no budget to get him in but still meeting Trent, Salah, Lukaku and Antonio..

      Why so many foden love after 1 match. As if you Don't know about pep's roulette. Didn't torres give you enough lesson? Did any of city attacker played 2500+ min last season? Kdb is the only guy you need.

        Goldfish have longer memories than City midfield addicts

        First Mahrez, then Torres, Grealish, now it’s Foden - next week it’ll be Gundo, then maybe Jesus, then it’ll be KDB’s turn, then Sterling for a while, then maybe even Bilva, then back to Mahrez…

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          12 days, 15 hours ago

          Ekhm, Grealish played 60+ minutes in every game so far. Around 80 per game on average. KDB also played almost every minute when he was fit in the last 2 seasons, but maybe Pep finally realized that maybe thats why he's injured every now and then. And he's not so young anymore so I would be curious with him in fpl.

      What are people's plan with Antonio?

      His next 6 fixtures:
      EVE (A) 4
      TOT (H) 3
      AVL (A) 3
      LIV (H) 4
      WOL (A) 2
      MCI (A) 5

      Really tempted to ditch him and get Armstrong/Toney. I know he has done well in the first few gameweeks but surely now is time to move on?

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        12 days, 18 hours ago

        My general strategy is to go with form for strikers and fixtures for defenders.

      2. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        12 days, 17 hours ago

        Already ditched him on my WC. Gotta take your chances when stuck at around 600k.

      3. Casual Player
          12 days, 16 hours ago

          I’m keeping.

            Definitely keeping him for GW8 but from then onwards he is facing team with good defensive records, and with european competition coming thick and fast, not entirely convinced he can sustain the performance. Not saying Antonio cant score in those fixtures, but I am considering if I can swap him to Armstrong and upgrade a 4.5mf to Mbeumo to capture their good fixtures.

        It says something for popularity of Premier League, that these pointless repetitive international breaks haven't killed it off yet. The dearth of posts on here shows how interest can rapidly dissipate.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        12 days, 18 hours ago

        Wildcard plan this week is to pick squad to play 343, with two premium defenders and three cheap rotating ones, a four in midfield which includes Torres and Raphina , but has a goodish fifth sub for inevitable absences, and three playing forwards.
        How does
        Ramsdale, Foster
        Rudi, Cancelo, Duffy/Liv, White
        Salah Son Torres Raphina Townsend
        Lukaku Antonio Toney look?

        2. Gabistuta
          • 3 Years

          Like it. 2 out of 3 of Antonio, Son and TAA it seems.

            12 days, 15 hours ago

            Thanks for reply. Yes to fit TAA in Antonio would have to go to an ultra-cheap non-combatant forward, and then if Torres Cancelo etc don't play not enough on the bench. If I get in for Son then need another mid for less than 7.0 and don't fancy many of them. Chance of points for defenders better than that. If TAA comes back in good form could get for couple of transfers eventually.

      6. FCSB

        TAA Cancelo Rudiger Duffy* Livramento
        Salah Foden Raphinha Mbeumo Luiz

        Haven’t seen him in many teams, but what about Mason Mount? He’s now back from injury and Tuchel has publicly stated he has the best connection with Lukaku. Great fixtures, on set pieces and possibly also pens when Jorginho isn’t on the pitch. And his price is fair too.

          I thought all that and then he didn’t play in the last game when he was supposed to be ready - so waiting to see him actually play.

          Have gone with only 2x Che and 2x City on my WC last week hoping one/two of Mount/Pulisic or Foden/Grealish make me excited soon.

            Maybe that’s a safer play on a WC - start with another mid priced midfielder and leave a CHE spot open to move for Mount once we see him start. Reckon Foden/Grealish worth a gamble for BUR this week?

          Fair call

          Still have him on my watchlist - he's a very dull choice but looks a good long termer. 137 points and 147 points with 13 attacking returns in the last 2 seasons with managed minutes. Reasonable to assume an uptick?

          One to put in and forget about if you don't mind tying up a Chelsea spot. Thinking he might possibly be my Benrahma replacement in a couple if I have money to burn.

          If he plays and looks good I'm 100% getting him in for Norwich, probably for Jota..

          Very little on FFS with regards Mount in recent days. I w/c'd in week 7 and with structure in place Mount is my mid - priced mid. He looks uninspiring at least compared to Jota's threat and maybe Foden's too (but clearly minutes permitting). The fixtures though were enough for me to take that half gamble in the knowledge he can be swopped out for the other guys i've mentioned if Tuchel decides to step up his impersonation of Pep.

        Which seems better? On a WC.

        A: Jimenez + Mbuembo + Christensen
        B: Toney + ESR + Rudiger

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years

          B with Mbeumbo instead of ESR if possible?

            Possible, but don't want to double up on Brentford players.

              I started with triple Brighton - they've served me well. Wouldn't be shy of shifting to triple Brentford now.

                Yeah, but Brighton are a relatively proven quantity in the top flight, whereas Brentford just in their first season. Always a risk their wheels will start coming off imo.

            1. Holmes
              • 8 Years

              Christensen from 1st, Smith Rowe from 2nd

          I'd avoid ESR myself unless he's a bench option and doubt Christensen too - would go Matip instead likely on the assumption he's all but nailed. Cheaper would be White of course and he could be a smart choice

          Jim Mbeumo Matip/White ?

          The game isn’t setup for it (with how price changes work) but without the ability to make and reverse transfers 474873828820000234)77 times in a GW there’s not much to keep me engaged for an IB.

          Instead just here quietly stewing that I bought in Raphinha at GW7 despite thinking he probably misses GW8. I guess I thought they’d be more said about it before the GW7 deadline if it was likely. Oops.

            Yeah really gotta hate that feeling when you improve your team by finally getting around to signing a ridiculously underpriced player with fantastic fixtures

            1. Casual Player
                12 days, 15 hours ago

                Could’ve done it GW9 instead and improved my team buying a different ridiculously underpriced player with fixtures who might actually play 2 games instead of 1.

                But I guess I’m doing this wrong.

                  You could've gotten Edouard for GW4 and Hwang for GW7 as well - could've done a lot of things - but yeah improving your team by signing Raphinha is a massive problem alright, well worth quietly stewing over tbf

                  1. Casual Player
                      12 days, 13 hours ago

                      It’s surprising to me you don’t understand how getting a player like Saka who will play both 7/8 and then getting Raphinha at 9 might be better than doing it the other way around.

                Raph is a season keeper and could easily have returned last week not a bad decision at all...if you have a bench

                  There has to be a growing niche in the market for this type of service given the sheer amount of requests for managers outsourcing their FPL decision making

                    Maupay.

                      Maupay is alright this week, he has been sneaky good so far and has Norwhich next match but he'd have to become Toney after it. The rest I agree with, would definitely diversify the defense

                        Would rather have Jimi, DCL or Bamford than Mpay.

                  good Morning everyone.
                  I hear contradictory reports regarding Raphina.
                  Twitter says he will not be flying back early but Leeds say he will be available next week.
                  Can anyone enlighten me?

                    The Brazil manager appeared to me to make it clear that it's not up to Leeds. My guess is that he'll be back at Leeds before kick-off but in no condition to play - technically 'available'. I'm writing off him and probably Trent for GW9, forcing Duffy and Livramento (the less said about 3rd sub Bissouma the better) to take the strain.

                        United like to keep CS's when they're expected to concede but I think if you own Vardy you have to play him every week because all he needs is one chance so B

                        You don't bench a premium, and you don't bench a player who faces Norwich, so by default it looks like him.

                          Yeah I guess you’re right. Livra stays with his CS points on the bench yet again.

                        Leeds are not a one man team. Will create a lot of scoring opportunities v STH.

                    Madness Even to think benching Vardy out of those.

                  Thinking long term and assuming everyone fit, which pair:

                  White and Lukaku
                  James and Vardy

                    White and Lu.

                  In the members stats area, when it says things like ‘chances conceded left flank’ does this mean left flank from the perspective of the defending or the attacking team?

                    Hey Jinswick, it's from the perspective of the defending team.
