Fair Play Kings - 2016/17

Fair Play Kings - 2016/17

Liverpool may have taken the Fair Play award for the season of 2016/17 but which sides were slightly more naughty across the campaign.

Liverpool registered 54 bookings across last season but did not pick up a red card, with Swansea City following in second place with 56 yellows.

Watford had the worst disciplinary record with a return of 84 yellow cards and five reds.

There is a £20,000 prize fund for the Premier League Fair Play winners and Liverpool have announced that season ticket holders aged between 17 and 21 with share that - roughly a reduction in the season ticket price by around £75 for 260 younger fans.

These days the Fair Play table no longer rewards sides with a Europa League spot, that ended back in 2015.

The Football Association's Fair Play table is calculated by a points system:

Caution - 4 points
Denial of a goalscoring opportunity or dismissal for two cautions - 10 points
Violent conduct, serious foul play, spitting or offensive and abusive language - 12 points

Barnsley 2 Middlesbrough 2

Middlesbrough twice came from behind to earn themselves a point at Barnsley after goals from Martin Braithwaite and Britt Assombalonga.

A frantic start to the game witnessed three changes of scoreline inside ten minutes, with Ashley Fletcher responsible for an own-goal against his former club and Cameron McGeehan netting on his home debut.

Summer recruit Braithwaite managed to respond in between those and Boro's record signing Assombalonga later equalised on the hour.
