Here below is the newly published and updated Premier League Fair Play table.
Published by The FA, it evaluates all 20 clubs by looking at the red and yellow cards each club has picked up.
As you can see below, West Ham are at the very top (in terms of misbehaving) and Liverpool at the very bottom.
The FA award the point as follows:
4 points for any yellow card
10 points for a red card awarded for denial of a goal scoring opportunity or dismissal for 2 cautions
12 points for a sending off due to violent conduct, serious foul play, spitting or offensive and abusive language
As you can see, Newcastle are 16th in the table with the fifth best disciplinary record, collecting 214 points after 35 PL matches.
Their total is made up of 48 bookings (48 x 4 = 192), plus the two Shelvey red cards, 12 points for the straight red on Dele Alli, then 10 points for the two bookings against Everton in the 1-0 home defeat.
There has been an improvement over the course of the season.
In the first 18 Premier League matches, culminating in the Everton home game, Newcastle picked up 28 yellows and 2 reds, then in the next 17 PL games there have been only 20 yellows and zero reds. Also, in these last 17 games, only twice have Newcastle picked up more than one yellow in any league match.
Considering how much possession they have in matches and how many skilful players they have, surprising to see Manchester City with the seventh worst disciplinary record.
