With the Premier League season now firmly up and running, top-flight players are starting to run the risk of being banned.
An accumulation of 5 yellow cards will result in that player having to complete a one-match suspension, a penalty that often causes major headaches for managers.
Watford’s Etienne Capoue was the most cautioned player last season, picking up 14 yellows in 33 appearances.
Luka Milivojevic of Crystal Palace became the first player to be banned this term when he picked up his fifth card in their win over Norwich on September 28.
Several stars are edging towards the suspension mark this term and could face a stint on the sidelines in the next few weeks.
