Premier League fair play table revealed with Liverpool top for fifth season

The Premier League Fair Play table has been announced for the 2020/21 campaign, with Liverpool topping the charts for the fifth consecutive season.

The Reds are currently nine points ahead of second-placed Burnley in the table, with one game remaining in the season.

Teams accumulate points through yellow cards and red cards. A yellow card is worth one point, a sending off for two bookable offences is worth three points, and a straight red card is worth five points.

Liverpool have accumulated a league low of 38 points, and none of their players have been shown a red card this season.

They are one of three teams not to have been given a red card, with Burnley and Leicester City the others.

At the other end of the scale, Arsenal, Aston Villa, Brighton and West Brom have received the most red cards, with four apiece.

Bottom side Sheffield United have received 70 yellow cards – the most in the division. Added to their three red cards, the Blades are also bottom of the Fair Play Table as a result.

Here is the full table:
