The ‘dirtiest’ Premier League teams revealed with the shocking stats that see Newcastle, Leeds and Manchester United eclipse their rivals

How ‘dirty’ have Newcastle United been this season compared to their Premier League rivals?

The current Premier League season is nine games old, meaning we’re a quarter through the campaign already.

But how well-behaved have each team been so far?

The formula for calculating this is: 1pt for a yellow card, 3pts for two yellow cards resulting in a red and 5pts for a straight-red card.

Here, using this data provided by Transfermarkt, we have ranked all 20 Premier League teams from the most-disciplined, to the least-disciplined.
