The dirtiest teams in the Premier League - where Newcastle United rank compared to Aston Villa, Everton & more

How does Newcastle United’s disciplinary records compare to their rivals across the Premier League?

The Premier League season is on hold as attentions turn towards the international break - but for Newcastle United there is an opportunity to reflect on what has been a challenging start to the campaign.

Eddie Howe’s side made a stunning start to the season as Alexander Isak, Sandro Tonali, Callum Wilson and Harvey Barnes all found the net as Aston Villa were condemned to a 5-1 defeat at St James Park. But that has been the sole positive from the first month after the Magpies emerged pointless from their home game against Liverpool and away games at Manchester City and Brighton and Hove Albion.

The opening quartet of fixtures have provided Howe’s men with some severe tests and United’s attempts to secure points has seen them receive 14 yellow cards across the first month - but how does that compare to their rivals across the Premier League?
