The Premier League teams with the most and least penalties awarded - including Wolves, Liverpool, Man City and West Ham - gallery

Here are the teams in the Premier League with the most and least penalties won during the 2023/24 season so far.

The Premier League is no stranger to penalties being awarded, especially with the presence of VAR in the modern game.

It's part and parcel of being in any football division on the planet but the worldwide focus on the English top tier can make decisions particularly contested.

It's a rarity to have a weekend of action without the match officials – or VAR – taking centre stage as pointing to the spot has huge ramifications.

At the time of publication, a total of 35 penalties have been awarded in the Premier League throughout 2023/24, with one team having as many as six but others having just a handful – or none at all.

With that in mind, BirminghamWorld has taken a look at the clubs with the most spot kicks received this campaign. Flick through the pages to see from the least to the most.
