Set Piece Takers

Premier League

This table displays 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 refreshed throughout the season as roles chop and change.

The Members’ table below, meanwhile, details the list of players who are prospering at indirect free-kicks and corners – i.e. those getting on the end of set-piece deliveries.

The table lists the players with the most number of headed attempts from set plays in 2018/19 – including players no longer at the club – but will be refreshed throughout the 2019/20 season.

The three players with the most headed attempts from each team are listed, along with any others that registered ten or more headers from set plays.
