The dirtiest teams in the Premier League this season and how Leeds United compare to Manchester United, Liverpool, Aston Villa, Everton, Arsenal, Spurs and the rest of the league – gallery


Leeds United have the 10th best disciplinary record in the Premier League this season, while Manchester City have the cleanest record so far this season.

The Whites have received 25 yellow cards in league games this campaign, while two reds have been handed out to members of Jesse Marsch’s squad. Man City have received just 11 yellow cards this season, while Liverpool also have one of the best disciplinary records with 12 yellow cards shown.

Both sides have had a man sent off on one occasion each this season. Eight teams have seen at least one of their players sent off in Premier League matches, while Wolves have the most red cards with three.

Leeds have had two players sent off early in their 14 league games. The first came when Luis Sinisterra received a second yellow card for delaying a free-kick in the Whites’ 0-0 draw with Aston Villa at Elland Road in early October.

United States captain Tyler Adams faces a suspension when he returns from the World Cup in Qatar after picking up two yellow cards in the Whites’ 4-3 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur. With top-flight action on hold for the 2022 World Cup, we looked at how all the teams have fared in terms of discipline this term…
