Premier League Betting: Cards on Sunday, four to find the notebook in gameweek 5

Aleksandar Mitrovic ranks in the top 10 players for fouls committed this season and features in our 'to be carded' tips for gameweek five

The international break is finally over and domestic football returns this weekend with Gameweek 5 in the Premier League. There have already been 115 yellow and 5 red cards brandished by referees in this new campaign and I’ve picked out a few players who I fancy to find their way into the notebook this weekend. 

There’s four selections in total which come across Sunday’s matches starting at 12pm. I’ll be playing a yankee on these four, which is 11 bets made up of six doubles, four trebles and a four-fold accumulator. This means even if two of the four selections land, we will at least double our stake and make profit here. The four-fold is a stand out best price of 589/1 with BetVictor so I’d highly recommend using them here as the accumulator with most other firms currently pays around half of that. 

Aleksandar Mitrovic to be carded @ 7/2 

Steven Alzate to be carded @ 17/4

Aaron Cresswell to be carded @ 4/1

Nampalys Mendy to be carded @ 4/1

PL Card Plays - Gameweek 5
12:00
Aleksandar Mitrovic, Steven Alzate, Aaron Cresswell and Nampalys Mendy all to be carded
Mitrovic has been booked already this season and collected nine for Fulham in the Championship last season. A big game for both sides and should be a physical affair. Steven Alzate has made more fouls in the Premier League than any other player this season Aaron Cresswell was cautioned on seven occasions for West Ham in 2019/20 and could be up against the pace of Lucas Moura and potentially Gareth Bale off the bench Nampalys Mendy has been booked in both home league games for Leicester this season

The first in this quadrant of selections for Sunday is Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic to be carded, which is best priced at 7/2 with BetVictor. The Serbian is well known when it comes to discipline and he was booked on no less than nine occasions for the Cottagers last season in the Championship.

Further to that Mitrovic was also booked seven times in Fulham’s Premier League campaign back in 2018/19. The 26-year-old ranks in the top 10 players for fouls committed so far this season and with both Fulham and Sheffield United yet to record a single point so far, Sunday’s game is a huge opportunity for both sides. Mitrovic should be fired up and both bet365 and Boyles Sports have this same selection as short as 9/4, so it does give some appeal to the 7/2 on offer from BetVictor. 

It’s the Eagles versus the Seagulls at 2pm, with Crystal Palace hosting Brighton in south London and I’m fancying Steven Alzate to find his way into referee Stuart Attwell’s book. Attwell has only officiated two games so far this season but has dished out an astonishing 13 yellow cards across them. 

The referee from Nuneaton ranked first for yellow cards given last season averaging 4.19 per game, a higher average than any other official. When it comes to Brighton’s Steven Alzate, the Colombian has made more fouls this season than any other player in the Premier League so far. The 23-year-old has already seen yellow once in the league this season and with Attwell in charge I think Alzate looks primed to pick up his second caution of the campaign.

Premier League Top 4 Odds
Pl Card Plays Gameweek 5

The pick of Sunday’s games appears to be the London derby between Tottenham and West Ham. The player on my radar in this game is defender Aaron Cresswell, who is no stranger to picking up a booking. Only Issa Diop picked up more yellow cards in the Premier League for West Ham last season than Aaron Cresswell with seven. 

With the potential pace of Gareth Bale or more likely Lucas Moura on the right wing for Spurs on Sunday I think Cresswell could be in for a tough time. Lucas has started three out of four games in the league this season but has drawn more fouls than any other player in his squad. With the potential for Bale to make an appearance off the bench Cresswell looks a nice prospect to pick up a booking from Paul Tierney who averaged just over three yellows per game last season.

The fourth and final selection of the weekend comes in the form of Nampalys Mendy to be carded. Leicester host Aston Villa at the King Power Stadium, with the visitors coming here off the back of a historic 7-2 win against champions Liverpool. Leicester’s Mendy has been enjoying a good run in the side in a holding position in front of the back four. With Wilfred Ndidi injured, Mendy should start against Villa and then Frenchman ranks 9th in the league this season for the most fouls committed.

The 28-year-old has actually been booked in both home league games so far this season and I’m backing him to make it three from three. Aston Villa have some tricky customers in Jack Grealish and Ross Barkley and Mendy breaking up play should be something we see a lot of. 

Putting those four selections together pays 589/1 with BetVictor and you can find a full range of football tips on BettingOdds.com. Best of luck to those following and please always gamble responsibly.
