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 10 of 10

1. Kevin Davies (Bolton striker) - 28 fouls, 4 yellow cards, 0 red cards. Repeat offender who has conceded 28 fouls already this season. Andy Carroll, second in the fouls table, only has 21 fouls. Davies is in a dirty league of his own.

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
