The Premier League’s ‘dirtiest’ teams - where Newcastle United, Leeds & West Ham rank
Who are the Premier League’s ‘dirtiest’ teams - based on their disciplinary record?
Ahead of the remaining two fixtures of the Premier League season, Newcastle United have received two red cards this campaign.
In the first game under the new Saudi Arabian ownership, Jonjo Shelvey was sent off after two bookings in the 3-2 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur at St James’ Park.
Little over a month later in a 1-1 draw with Norwich City, Ciaran Clark was red carded after just nine minutes when he brought down Teemu Pukki, who was through on goal.
Naturally, as is the same for most sides, Newcastle have picked up their fair share of bookings across the course of the season.
