Manchester City’s Fernandinho has gone off the rails of late, picking up three red cards in a span of six matches.
He’ll now miss the next four matches, but these have been his first red card offences in the Premier League.
Here are the players with the most reds in EPL history…
The Irish centre back wasn’t afraid to get down and dirty at times, picking up eight red cards in the Premier League, which was one every 4,617th minute.
He was a powerful presence on the pitch and his opponents would get the worst of it at times as he earned eight reds during his career for one every 3,162nd minute.
Of everyone on this list, the Scotsman picked up his eight red cards the quickest. He got sent off once every 2,283rd minute. Phew.
Another Irish great who played so long that he eventually picked up enough reds to make this list, his seven coming at a pace of one every 4,413rd minute.
He loves a dirty challenge as he had his seven red cards by the age of 27, including six in the span of 99 appearances, which is one every 2,540th minute.

DELE ALLI (TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR) – 8.5
After being rather underwhelming all season and scoring just thrice in 16 games, Dele Alli has burst into life over the festive period.
He followed up a goal against Burnley with three consecutive braces, the latest of which came against title favourites Chelsea.
Alli’s two goals for Spurs against their London rivals were almost identical as he nodded home two crosses from Christian Eriksen, ending Chelsea’s hopes of equalling Arsenal’s record of 14 consecutive Premier League wins.

DANNY ROSE (TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR) – 7.6
The English international tirelessly overlapped down the left flank, forcing Victor Moses to spend more time in his own half than the opposition’s.
He was solid in defence and his lively display helped facilitate Tottenham’s attacks.
CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN (TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR) – 7.6
The Dane was the best player on the pitch against Chelsea. He was at the heart of everything Spurs created and his deliveries for Alli’s goals were sublime.
Eriksen can be proud of that performance and is turning into a player Mauricio Pochettino can count on as well.
Christian Eriksen has now recorded 20 Premier League assists since the start of last season; only Mesut Özil (22) has more. pic.twitter.com/4TibLCjCXc— Squawka Football (@Squawka) January 4, 2017
GARETH MCAULEY (WEST BROM) – 7.5
A defender’s ability to chip in with a goal on a regular basis should never be taken for granted. Apart from marshaling the defence and being a leader on the pitch, the 37-year-old’s knack of finding the back of the net comes as a welcome bonus for Tony Pulis.
His goal against Hull City gave the Baggies the lead and enabled them to go on to a 3-1 win.
SERGIO AGUERO (MANCHESTER CITY) – 7.5
You can never write off Sergio Aguero. After a dismal performance against Liverpool, the striker found himself on the bench for Burnley’s visit to the Etihad.
He made an immediate impact as a second half substitute though, as he gave City’s ten men an edge in attack. His goal from a seemingly impossible angle with two defenders on the line proved to be decisive in his side’s 2-1 win.

On paper, a trip to Bournemouth for Arsenal was hardly expected to be a Premier League classic but it proved to be one of the more entertaining games of the season.
Edie Howe’s troops played some scintillating football and went 3-0 up with Ryan Fraser proving to be the chief threat.
However, once the Scot went off injured in the second half, an Arsenal comeback ensued. Alexis Sanchez began the onslaught with 20 minutes to go before Bournemouth were reduced to ten men when Francis was dismissed for a tackle on Aaron Ramsey.
Lucas Perez scored on the volley before an Olivier Giroud header in stoppage time rescued a point for the visitors.
Twitter happily indulged in the roller coaster and here are some of the best tweets that surfaced over the course of the match.

I'd transfer-list half these overpaid prima donnas tomorrow morning.
No heart, no guts, no leaders. #afc
