Top 5 Premier League teams with the most yellow cards in a season

In football, yellow cards are one of the big disciplinary issues for the teams. Referees give a serious warning to the players by using the yellow cards. While the English Premier League is a highly competitive tournament, it is not easy for the teams to always maintain the disciplinary issues on the field.   

Talking about the dangerous effects of the yellow cards, two yellow cards in a game for a player means the player’s removal from the game with an automatic red card. Meanwhile, a player’s uncontrollable yellow cards in a season can also cause problems for a team by the unavailability of that player in a crucial match.
