Who are the penalty-takers and backup penalty-takers in 2023 for all 20 teams in the English Premier League?
Whether it’s for DFS, fantasy soccer contests or goalscorer betting inspiration, knowing who takes penalties for specific EPL teams can prove to be invaluable.
Soccer bettors from across the United States were quick to wager on penalty scorers and first goalscorer bets at the 2022 World Cup after it was revealed who took penalties for every nation. From Argentina’s Lionel Messi to Salem Al-Dawsari of Saudi Arabia.
Knowing who will be stepping up to the spot in each English Premier League match is important. Especially when penalties are given so often on a matchday and can be the difference between winning, losing or drawing. With the addition of VAR into soccer, penalties are awarded more often than they have been in previous seasons.
