So which is the dirtiest team in the Premier League?
When it comes to referees dishing out cards, who has accumulated the most?
It turns out our friends from down the road are the dirtiest team in the division as well as being one of the worst in terms of ability.
Sunderland have eight more cards than their nearest challenger with 66 in total, whilst Newcastle at least scrape into the top ten (worst) in this list with 51.

A bit of a surprise though to see the next three positions filled by Man City, Spurs and Arsenal, all three in the top six of the Premier League and associated with playing good football rather than getting stuck in.
