With the 2022-23 Premier League season done and dusted, the attention has now shifted to the upcoming campaign. But before the season starts, players get a well-earned summer break followed by a pre-season tour with their respective domestic clubs. Add to it, the summer transfer window has also opened, making it all the more interesting for supporters, who cannot wait to see which new players are being signed by their respective clubs.
Prior to looking at the new campaign, it is imperative to take a peek into some of the eye-catching moments of the previous term. There were plenty of goal-mouth action and splendid defending along the way to manage a team’s ambition. A lot of twists and turns have taken place with several unexpected finishes being witnessed across the standings. It is time to look at the clubs that have received the most yellow cards in the 2022-23 Premier League season.
Which club got the maximum yellow cards?
There are multiple teams sharing the top spot in this table. Leeds United, Nottingham Forest and Wolverhampton Wanderers have each received 84 yellow cards over the course of the 2022-23 Premier League campaign. It has been an eventful season for all of them, as the trio flirted with relegation at one point or another during the term. In the end, Forest and Wolves survived, however, Leeds got demoted to the second division.
The next place is also occupied by three clubs. Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and Fulham have all collected 80 yellows during the league season. Villa had a massive resurgence since Unai Emery took charge of the club, as they booked an unlikely European ticket. Meanwhile, Palace did extremely well to move out of the relegation zone during the business end of the season. On the other hand, Fulham have been one of the surprise packages of the campaign.
Manchester United are placed eight
There are also places for heavyweights such as Manchester United and Chelsea in this table. The Red Devils had received 78 yellow cards over the season, while the Blues got 77 yellows. However, both sides experienced contrasting forms during the campaign, with Man United securing an unlikely Champions League finish while Chelsea wrapped up their miserable season by finishing outside the top half.
