Knowing a team’s penalty takers can sometimes prove the difference between a successful prop bet or a winning fantasy team, and one that falls short. Below is a quick reference list for the Premier League’s regular spot kick specialists.
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 assumes spot-kick duties might arise.
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.
