Here’s what you need to know about which players are their club’s dedicated penalty-kick takers, as well as some deputy options for your fantasy team
Premier League Fantasy Football enthusiasts will be eager to fill their team with the best penalty-takers in order to earn maximum points in the event of a spot-kick being awarded.
So which penalty-takers should you be signing for your Fantasy Football team?
Goal takes a look.
Who are the Premier League penalty takers this season?
When you’re choosing your forwards for your Fantasy Team, you might be tempted to sign a striker who’s a noted penalty-taker and has a good conversion rate from the spot.
Of course, the penalty takers for each team are never set in stone. Some clubs might have a consistent, dedicated penalty-taker at all times, but sometimes, things change – and some last-minute decisions on who is to assume spot-kick duties might arrive.
Additionally, there is the chance that the dedicated spot-kick taker has been subbed off or is simply not on the pitch at the time of the penalty being awarded.
Still, we’ve rounded up a list of each club’s primary, as well as secondary, penalty takers in the table below, and the players who have the best chance of being picked to convert a spot-kick.
The primary penalty takers have been listed, and we’ve provided their deputy penalty-takers should the first-choice be unavailable to step up.
