Premier League set piece & penalty takers are some of fantasy football managers’ favourite players. Adding them to your squad selection may, in fact, turn out to be the easiest way to accumulate extra points for your teams.

The majority of teams have a few set-piece takes and a couple of penalty-takers across a season. Knowing them is important. Being aware of when they are changed is vital.

Here’s an updated list of the players tasked with taking set pieces for EPL sides and with trying to convert the rare, all-important penalties.
