When building a Fantasy Premier League squad, knowing the set-piece takers for each club can give managers the edge over mini-league rivals.
Ahead of 2019/20, The Scout analyses which players to target.
The dead-ball delivery of Matt Ritchie (£5.5m) can be a big influence on Newcastle this season especially after a reassignment of position.
The Magpies' first choice for corner kicks, Ritchie produced four assists last term from set-pieces.
Ritchie's underlying statistics back up his potential for assists.
The 29-year-old created 24 chances from set-pieces in 2018/19, more than double the tally of any team-mate.
His role as No 1 for penalties for Newcastle helped him further. The Scotland international took two of their three spot-kicks, converting one of his attempts.
And his reassignment as a defender in Fantasy will only add to his potential, since he will now get an extra point for goals scored than he did as a midfielder.
Ultimately, Ritchie scored twice and supplied eight assists last season.
This means 50 per cent of his contributions came from dead-ball situations.
Salomon Rondon's return to his parent club, West Bromwich Albion, means some uncertainty over Newcastle's free-kick taker in 2019/20.
The on-loan striker was the Magpies' first choice last season and fired nine attempts, scoring once.
Centre-back Fabian Schar (£5.0m) also offered a big threat at set-pieces.
The Swiss international produced 14 shots and scored two of his four goals this way.
Schar took one direct free-kick too, and his potential for more goals could be boosted if he takes over duties from Rondon.
