Premier League ‘dirtiest teams’ table includes Aston Villa, Chelsea, Newcastle United, Tottenham, Everton and rivals

Here are the dirtiest teams in the Premier League after eight matches of the 2023/24 season.

The 2023/24 Premier League campaign has kicked off as one of the most competitive in years, presenting fans up and down the country with plenty of drama – as well as those watching on all over the world.

No surprises have arrived from the promoted clubs just yet but Aston Villa, Brighton & Hove Albion and West Ham United have excited by keeping Newcastle United, Manchester United and Chelsea outside of the top seven.

Manchester City, who were tipped for an unbeaten season, have suffered two losses already. Arsenal recently won 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium and Pep Guardiola’s side were stunned by Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux a week earlier.

Every Premier League weekend it’s difficult to predict just one result – let alone all of them – and plenty of that is down to the desire, intensity and physicality on show.

The tension often rises in hotly contested fixtures, causing VAR and the on-field match officials to intervene. Whether it be for something as light as dissent or as dangerous as a crunching challenge, plenty of cards are brandished as a result.

With that in mind, we’ve ranked all 20 teams in the Premier League for their discipline – or rather their lack of it. Based on five points for a straight red card, three for a second yellow and one for each individual yellow, here’s how the table looks.
