EPL stats: Which clubs have received the most red cards in 2022-23 Premier League season?

The 2022-23 Premier League season had it all from memorable goals to flying tackles, as the supporters were able to witness another action-packed campaign. There were plenty of drama over the course of the season which saw some of the biggest surprises during the term. It also had several unexpected finishes across the league standings, with lesser-fancied sides finishing well above their expectations.

Right at the top, there was an intriguing title battle between Arsenal and Manchester City. The Gunners held the top spot for a long time before being displaced by City at the end. The same was the case at the bottom half of the table, with few Premier League regulars battling for relegation. In the end, it was a major shock to see clubs like Southampton and former champion Leicester City get demoted to second division.

Which club had received the most red cards?

The team with the maximum number of red cards in the 2022-23 Premier League season is Wolverhampton Wanderers. They have received a staggering six red cards over the course of the season. Not many would have anticipated Wolves to be at the top of this list since there are more physical sides in the division. However, this data proves that Wolves were equally physical and made life extremely difficult for the opponents when facing them.

There are multiple teams sharing the second spot. Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are among them, who have got three red cards each. These two clubs had underwhelming campaigns this time around, as they both missed Europe altogether. In fact, Chelsea were not even able to finish in the top half of the league table. Other clubs with three reds are Crystal Palace and relegated Leeds United.

Manchester United got two red cards

Similarly, there are multiple clubs that have got two red cards each. Among them are the two Champions League qualified teams – Manchester United and Newcastle United. Besides, Everton and relegated Leicester City have also received two reds each.
