QUIZ: Most Premier League Red Cards

QUIZ: Most Premier League Red Cards

How well can you remember some of the dirtiest players in Premier League history? 

For all the players with sublime skill, deadly finishing ability and solid defensive attributes, there have also been several players to have played in the Premier League who have taken no prisoners. Every team has their ‘hard man’ who often allows the red mist to descend and makes a silly challenge and picks up a red card on several occasions.

Already in the 2018/19 season we have seen 31 red cards in the Premier League after 21 gameweeks.  Phil Jagielka was the first player to be shown red this season in his teams 2-2 draw against Wolves on the opening weekend of the campaign. There are two players who have picked up a couple of red cards already this term, Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Leicester City’s Wes Morgan.

Brighton & Hove Albion, Huddersfield Town, Manchester United and Leicester City have all seen three of their players shown a red card already this season. Meanwhile only Arsenal, Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers are yet to have any of their players sent off.

We have decided to put together a quiz asking you to name the 37 players with the most red cards in Premier League history. Each player has between eight and five red cards in the top flight and we have given you just eight minutes to try and get them all so you will need to think fairly fast. To give you a helping hand we have provided the number of sendings off each player has had as well as every club they represented in the Premier League (note they may have played for other clubs outside the top flight which we have NOT included.)

We will be mightily impressed if you manage to get 100% on this one.

Good Luck!
