Ranked! The 50 dirtiest players in Premier League history



Peter Crouch remonstrates with the referee after being penalised

These are players who let you know they’re there. Who leave a mark. Who make sure you’ll feel that in the morning. Who put a name on it, no matter who’s in their way. Who get there somehow.

Well, some of them are, anyway. A number of these players find their way onto this list more through longevity than nastiness, so it’s interesting to see just how many stars can be considered dirty when you total up the number of misdemeanours that they’ve committed over years of Premier League football.
