Premier League yellow cards 2023/24: Chelsea, in-form West Ham and Newcastle among players close to suspension

Premier League players are already set to be suspended just a few games into the new season following a crackdown on indiscipline.

The 2023/24 campaign followed through on predictions that officials would be tougher on bad behavior and time wasting.

Lawmakers cracked down on dissent

As a result, the new guidelines have led to referees handing out more yellow cards than ever before at this stage of the season.

Any Premier League player who accumulates five bookings in the first 19 league matches will be suspended for one match.

Matchday 19 again takes place over the festive period, with most teams in action on Boxing Day, before a slight respite in 2024.

Players who accrue double-digit bookings before and including the 32nd game of the season will be suspended for two additional games.

But due to the new stricter rules, expect stars to fall foul sooner rather than later, with some already walking a thin line…

Premier League yellow cards: who is close to a suspension?

Six players are already on the receiving end of three yellow cards just five games into the new season.

Nottingham Forest’s Ola Aina and West Ham’s Emerson are just two yellow cards away from suspension.

As do Chelsea striker Nicolas Jackson and Newcastle winger Anthony Gordon, Man United star Bruno Fernandes and Wolves defender Nelson Semedo.

A total of 31 players then received two yellow cards as part of the increase in warnings issued at all levels.
