Bruno, Mane, Mount among Premier League’s top 20 foulers

The most prolific sinner is a Jose Mourinho player – perhaps the most Mourinho player in the Spurs squad – while the likes of Jack Grealish, Sadio Mane, Bruno Fernandes and Mason Mount seem to be giving as good as they are getting.

And how did Scott McTominay make it up until last night before getting his first booking for the season?
