The race to avoid 10 yellow cards

1 min read

🟨 Ivan Toney picked up his ninth booking of the season late on in Brentford’s win over Southampton in Gameweek 27, so is now one caution away from a two-match ban.

Toney has to get through the Bees’ next five games without a yellow card in order to avoid that fate. If he’s booked in his next match against Brighton and Hove Albion, he’ll miss out on Brentford’s second Double Gameweek 29 fixture away at Manchester United (as well as Gameweek 30).

We likely won’t be seeing Aleksandar Mitrovic (Β£6.6m) for a while after he was shown the red card for shoving referee Chris Kavanagh at Old Trafford.

Violent conduct carries a three-match ban as a default but because a match official was involved, there’s a chance that further punishment will be meted out.

Cristiano Ronaldo received a five-game ban after he pushed the referee during a Spanish Super Cup match in 2017, while Paolo Di Canio was given an 11-match suspension for shoving Paul Alcock in 1998.
