The Premier League's newly released Fair Play Table successfully dispels the myth that nice guys finish last, with a positive correlation between the fair play standings and clubs' actual league position, reports the Daily Mail.
There's a familiar feel about the fair play's top four, with forces that are used to occupying places in the higher echelons of the division. The only anomaly is that of Manchester United, who find themselves towards the bottom end of the rankings.
Taking into account the accumulation of red and yellow cards, respect towards opponents and referees, behaviour of team officials and positive on-field play, the results are calculated by delegates that take in every Premier League game.
And, for those who disregard these statistics as irrelevant, it's worth remembering that an extra place in next season's Europa League is up for grabs for the top three ranked fair play nations on the continent.
Click through the tabs - above or below - to check out the top 10 fairest teams in the Premier League this season, and have your say in the comment box provided, who you think will finish top of the fair play league by the end of the season.
