1. Stoke

Yellow cards - 49

Red cards - 3

Points - 55

Judging by these, statistics, however, that change is yet to take place. Stoke, whose recent defeat to Sunderland left them 16th in the table and just three points ahead of West Ham in 18th, are the dirtiest team in the Premier League (on points) at the moment.

Marc Wilson has been in regular trouble with four yellows and one red, while Jonathan Walters has picked up six yellow cards.
