A handy guide to the players who will hit spot-kicks and take set-pieces for Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and every other team

When it comes to fantasy football  it's all about maximising your points haul, and you have to be clever when it comes to which players to pick.

If you want to stand a chance of winning a mini-league against your friends, it is wise to fill your team with as many players who score goals and set them up.

So don't just think of strikers or midfielders who score but those who also take penalties, and it makes sense to consider players who regularly take free-kicks or corners for their teams.

To help you get ahead of the game,  Goal takes a look at the players who take penalties, free-kicks and corners for every Premier League team in 2021-22.

Manchester United playmaker Bruno Fernandes scored 18 goals for the Red Devils in 2020-21 and nine of them came from penalties. The Portugal international took spot-kick responsibilities from Marcus Rashford, but it remains to be seen if Cristiano Ronaldo will now take charge.

Everton full-back Lucas Digne is a gem in fantasy football thanks to his set-piece ability and the left-back never shies away from a free-kick opportunity. Trent Alexander-Arnold does likewise at Anfield for Liverpool, as does West Ham full-back Aaron Cresswell.

At Chelsea, Jorginho plays a role at the base of midfield that initiates attacks rather than finishes them, but the Italy international is considered one of the best penalty takers in the world and he hits them for the Blues. He scored seven penalties in the 2020-21 Premier League season and missed two.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin, meanwhile, now appears to be Everton's primary penalty-taker, while James Ward-Prowse takes just about every set-piece possible for Southampton.
