This list is based as much on hard stats (fouls conceded and cards received) as subjective musing – so don’t shoot the messenger unless you really got beef.

In reverse order then, here are the ten dirtiest players in the Premier League so far this season:


Picture 1 of 10

10. Patrice Evra (Man Utd defender) - 13 fouls, 0 yellow cards, 0 red cards. Evra's badge means he's somehow avoided the ref's little book so far, but no defender has committed more fouls than the feisty Frenchman.

Who did we miss? Agree/disagree with the order? As always, Pies thrives on your feedback…

PS. If you’re wondering what happened to the thumbnail gallery format, we haven’t ditched it. Far from it. For ordered lists, a clickthrough gallery makes much more sense, so for Top 10s and other lists, we’ll use that. But for all other pics – WAGs, match photos etc. – we’ll use thumbnails. Thanks for listening
