Current Premier League rules state that players must serve a one-match ban if they accumulate five yellow cards from their side’s first 19 league games.

The one-match suspension must be served in the Premier League and cannot carry over into other domestic competitions like the FA Cup or League Cup.

Any players who accumulate ten yellow cards by the 32nd fixture in the Premier League season must then serve a two-game ban.

Tottenham have now played 16 Premier League games this season, with matches against Aston Villa, Sheffield United, and Liverpool to come before the 19-game cut-off point.

Premier League stats show that Harry Winks has picked up the highest number of yellow cards for Tottenham so far this season with four, meaning he is one booking away from a suspension.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Giovani Lo Celso are currently two bookings away from a ban, although the Argentine is currently sidelined with an injury.

Tanguy Ndombele, Sergio Reguilon and Moussa Sissoko make up the remainder of the Spurs players at risk of a ban, although they would need one booking from each of the next three games to reach the threshold.
