Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has committed just 4.38 fouls for every booking, the fewest of any 'Big Six' player.
Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has committed just 4.38 fouls for every booking, the fewest of any 'Big Six' player.

BettingOdds.com have conducted a study into the fouls to bookings ratio across the 2020/21 Premier League season thus far.

The research has found that Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has committed just 4.38 fouls for every booking, the fewest of any 'Big Six' player.  Meanwhile his teammate, Manchester United’s midfield general Scott McTominay, is certified as the Premier League escape artist, committing the most fouls before going into the referee’s book this season, which he finally managed to achieve against West Ham United at Old Trafford in the Red Devils' 29th league match of the season.

The results of the study can be found below and have been broken down into the following 3 categories: 

  • The outfield players to have committed the most fouls but have received the fewest bookings, having made at least 25 fouls in the 2020/21 Premier League season so far;
  • The outfield players to have committed the fewest fouls but have received the most bookings, having made at least 25 fouls in the 2020/21 Premier League season so far;
  • The outfield players to have committed the most fouls in the fewest minutes, having made at least 25 fouls in the 2020/21 Premier League season so far.
