This has particularly been the case during the 2023/24 season so far, with the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea struggling while Brighton & Hove Albion have upset the apple cart.
With this competitiveness comes great physicality and that can often mean there are plenty of break-ups in play - and fouls given away - throughout matches.

Based on data collated by Transfermarkt, here’s how all 20 Premier League clubs rank in the ‘dirtiest teams table’, with one point per yellow card, three for each second yellow and five for a red.
