Premier League's dirtiest teams revealed in disciplinary charts for 2022/23

The Premier League's disciplinary chart for 2022/23 can now be revealed, with the season nearing its conclusion.

Numbers from the official Premier League site have been collated by the Mirror – and it is Wolves who have been in referees' bad books more than any other team this past season.

Julen Lopetegui's players have been shown six red cards this season, which is a far cry from some other teams (West Ham, Arsenal, Brighton, Bournemouth, Southampton and Nottingham Forest) who haven't had a man sent off in the whole campaign.

Wolves' red card figure is twice the next highest, with Leeds, Crystal Palace, Chelsea and Tottenham all receiving three red cards apiece this term.



Casemiro was the recipient of Manchester United's only two red cards this season, having never previously been shown a straight red in a decade playing for Real Madrid.

Meanwhile, it was no surprise to see City and Arsenal towards the bottom of the disciplinary table, with the style of football played by Pep Guardiola and Mikel Arteta's sides lending itself to having possession rather than trying to wrestle the other team off the ball.

West Ham, however, are a surprise as the 'cleanest' team in the division, having only picked up 43 yellow cards all season and no reds. Nottingham Forest picked up the most yellows without a single red – nearly twice as many as the Hammers, with 82.


The Mirror assigned two points for a red card and one for a yellow when assembling their table, which reads as follows:

1. Wolves – 84 yellows, six reds

2. Leeds – 81 yellows, three reds


3. Crystal Palace – 80 yellows, three reds

4. Chelsea– 76 yellows, three reds

5. Everton – 78 yellows, two reds

6. Nottingham Forest – 82 yellows, no red


7. Tottenham – 75 yellows, three reds

8. Manchester United – 76 yellows, two reds

9. Fulham – 78 yellows, one red

10. Aston Villa – 76 yellows, one red


11. Southampton – 73 yellows, no red

12. Bournemouth – 66 yellows, no red

13. Newcastle – 62 yellows, one red

14. Leicester – 58 yellows, two reds

15. Liverpool – 55 yellows, one red

16. Brentford – 51 yellows, one red

17. Brighton – 53 yellows, no red

18. Arsenal – 52 yellows, no red

19. Man City – 43 yellows, one red

20. West Ham – 43 yellows, no red
