Who is the dirtiest team in the Premier League? Where Arsenal, Chelsea & more rank in 21/22 disciplinary table
Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United, Crystal Palace and Brentford also feature across the standings with differing results.
The 2021/22 Premier League season was a fiery one with both the title race and relegation battle going to the wire in a thrilling final day.
Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur qualified for the Champions League while Arsenal and West Ham United missed out but both will be in continental action this season.
Crystal Palace and Brentford managed to steer clear of the relegation battle but Watford weren’t as successful and were relegated to the EFL Championship.
With so much on the line it’s understandable that passion sometimes gets the better of players and that can result in bookings - but which teams managed to keep their cool most often and who let their tempers get the better of them?
Football statistics site Transfermarkt have compiled all the yellow and red cards from the 2021/22 Premier League season into a full disciplinary table.
The site uses a points system where straight red cards award the most followed by red cards as a result of a second yellow and then by yellow cards.
In total, 1274 yellow cards and 42 reds were shown by referees in English football’s top flight last season.
Here is how the 2021/22 Premier League disciplinary table looks with the team who have the cleanest record at the top and the dirtiest team on the bottom:
(Where two sides have the same number of points the team with more red cards ranks higher then the team with more straight red cards then, if two sides have identical records, final league position)
