PL players who are one yellow card away from a ban

A number of Premier League players are walking a disciplinary tightrope ahead of the gruelling run of fixtures over the festive period.

Players who have been cautioned four times in domestic competitions this season will be aware that another yellow card will automatically land them a one-match ban.

The cut-off date for players to avoid a suspension for accumulating five cards is on December 31, which marks the halfway point of the season - and it could influence team selections over the next few weeks.

Here is the full list of Premier League players in danger of collecting a fifth booking before the end of the year and consequently missing a potentially pivotal fixture:

Arsenal - Alexis Sanchez

Bournemouth - Steve Cook

Brighton - Shane Duffy, Glenn Murray

Burnley - Jack Cork

Chelsea - Alvaro Morata, Antonio Rudiger

Crystal Palace - Jason Puncheon

Everton - Ashley Williams

Huddersfield Town - Tommy Smith

Leicester - None

Liverpool - Emre Can

Man City - Leroy Sane, Fernandinho, Vincent Kompany

Man Utd - None

Newcastle - None

Southampton - None

Stoke City - Joe Allen

Swansea - None

Tottenham - Jan Vertonghen

Watford - Abdoulaye Doucare

West Brom - Allan Nyom, James McClean.
