The five most reckless players in the Premier League so far with Tottenham hot-head Udogie beaten to top spot | The Sun
THE five most reckless players in the Premier League so far have been revealed.
But Tottenham hot-head Destiny Udogie does NOT take the top spot despite seeing red against Chelsea this week.
The Italian left-back was lucky to not be sent off early on in Spurs’ 4-1 defeat for a two-footed lunge at Raheem Sterling.
Udogie escaped a VAR check with just a yellow card.
But he received a second booking later on for another ugly challenge on Sterling, resulting in his first-ever Premier League red.
Boffins at BettingOdds.com have now calculated that Udogie has been the second most-reckless player in the top flight so far this season.

Devising a points-based system, Udogie clocked in with a massive score of 33 thanks to his one red card, three yellows and 22 fouls.
Each red is worth five points, each yellow is worth two, and each foul is worth one.
But Udogie was pipped to top spot by Liverpool midfielder Alexis Mac Allister, who rules the roost with 36 points.
The Argentina World Cup winner has also been sent off this season.

And he’s received two more yellows than Udogie.
But despite committing one foul fewer, Mac Allister is a whole three points clear of the Italian.
In third place is West Ham’s Lucas Paqueta, who has clearly abandoned his silky Samba skills for the dark arts.
Marvelous Nakamba is fourth in the list after using his physicality to lift Luton Town out of the relegation zone.
And Conor Gallagher is showing why he’s one of Mauricio Pochettino’s favourites by coming fifth with his dogged performances.
To qualify for the list, all players must have featured in at least 10 Premier League matches this season.
And as a result, a list of the five least reckless players has been devised as well.
Manchester United’s Christian Eriksen, Tottenham’s Micky van de Ven and Arsenal’s Oleksandr Zinchenko all have a clear sense of fair play.
And Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins only appears to be concerned with goals, coming second on the list with just two fouls.
