Premier League's dirtiest teams revealed in disciplinary charts for 2022/23
| Last updated
The Premier League's disciplinary chart for 2022/23 can now be revealed, with the season nearing its conclusion.
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.
