Who Takes Penalties for Every Team in the English Premier League?

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.

Who is the Record Penalty Scorer in the EPL?

Ex-Newcastle and Blackburn striker Alan Shearer has scored the most penalties in the English Premier League. He has scored 56 and has also taken the most penalties in the competition (67).

Behind Shearer is Frank Lampard with 43 and Steven Gerrard with 32. Harry Kane is 4th on the list and the highest penalty scorer from current EPL players (30).

Who Takes Penalties for Man United?

Cristiano Ronaldo began the 2022/23 EPL season as Manchester United’s first-choice penalty taker. Now that he’s left to join Al-Nassr in Saudi Arabia, the Red Devils have opted for Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and Anthony Martial as their top penalty-takers.

Who is Arsenal’s Penalty Taker?

Bukayo Saka takes penalties for one of the current frontrunners in the English Premier League. Then, if he is not on the field, Gabriel Martinelli is most likely to step up to the penalty spot.

EPL Penalty Takers

Who Takes Penalties for Manchester City?

Erling Haaland is Man City’s first-choice penalty taker. The Norwegian will likely be followed by Riyad Mahrez and Kevin De Bruyne in the pecking order.

Who Takes Liverpool’s Penalty Kicks?

First choice for penalties at Liverpool is Mohamed Salah. However, in the event that James Milner is on the pitch, he may step up to the spot. Fabinho is the likely third-choice penalty taker.

Who Takes Penalties for Newcastle?

Newcastle has an extremely talented EPL squad. But who takes Newcastle’s penalties? Currently, Calum Wilson is the first-choice penalty taker for Newcastle. New signing Alexander Isak is expected to step up and take a penalty if Wilson is not on the field.
