Football News

With 28 free-kicks already converted in the Premier League this campaign, 2013/14 is well on its way to becoming a record-breaking season of goals scored from set-pieces.

David Beckham made dead ball situations his specialist trademark during his playing days at Manchester United, and numerous players have tried - and failed - to replicate his phenomenal return of goals scored from free-kicks around the box.

This year, it looks as though all those extra hours on the training pitch are paying off, as players continue to hone their set-piece skills to devastating effect, with a wide selection of training ground moves coming to fruition in live game situations.

Last term saw a total number of 32 goals scored directly from free-kicks, meaning that the current crop of Premier League stars are just five away from surpassing that, and we've still got four months of the season to play.

But, of all the set-piece specialists celebrating their rich vein of form this year, who is the ultimate free-kick king in England's top-flight?

Click through the tabs - above or below - to work your way through the players with the best conversion rate from 10 to 1, and feel free to share in the comment box provided, your favourite set-piece success this season!
