Lee Cattermole's red card at the weekend prompted memories of the halcyon days of the Premier League when the likes of Roy Keane and Patrick Vieira were tearing through the opposition on a weekly basis.

Cattermole's sending off against Hull was his fifth for Sunderland and his seventh in total, which makes the midfielder the player with the joint-second most reds in the league's history at the age of only 25.
