Updated on SKY today - Most fouled players in the Premier League this season

1. Jack Grealish
2. Wilfred Zaha
3. Bertrand Traore
4. John McGinn
5 Sadio Mane

This does defy logic as we are not *that* attacking compared to say City.  The main thing I can think of is other teams tend to rotate their attacking players more than us, so the fouls are spread over 4 or five players.  Regardless, a free kick coach might be a good investment.

Itís because refs allow at least 3 fouls on Jack before even thinking about a yellow card.

And other teams rotate who does it as well. So even if the thought is a yellow, the next player makes the ref lose count and start again.

Hi not to cause a fruroe with Traore but on fouls received actually:
1. Grealish 100
2. Zaha 56
3. McGinn  , Mane & Adama Traore 55
4 .Sakha & Maddison 50
5. Eze 49

This translates to
1st Jack Grealish is most fouled player per game at  4.5 times per game (22 matches)
5th John McGinn 2.4 times per game (23 matches) is number 5 of all players fouled per game

That's always been my gripe Refs being flexible with rules when its cautionable fouls against Jack. Even is its"my first one ref" it still could carded when its deemed bookable. Now what's seemingly happened is Grealish is committing more fouls. 1.7 fouls a game. In part because of the so many fouls against him! And he's getting bookings unlike some of the opposing players.
Shocking really. Refs must not let fouls go on Grealish without caution

Jack is 7th in most fouls conceded in the Premier league this season. He's now a top 10 player for fouling the opposition! And joint 3rd for yellow cards received (one of many players who had 6 yellows this season)
For any ill discpline,  dissent and petulance shown by JG the 100 fouls against Grealish nearly double than nearest is a telling factor i feel to why Jack has been fouling and being cautioned more than any of the other top 5 most fouled players.
Grealish is now out injured with a lower leg injury and in context that's not surprising given the amount of kicking he's repeatedly had. Yet he's been cautioned more than some teams players who fouled him repeatedly!

1.Soucek 48   
2. HÝjbjerg 44   
3. Ashley Barnes43   
4. Klich 42   
5. Mount 41   
6.Bissouma 40   
7. Jack Grealish 38

I'd be surprised if he was back for Wolves, given what Smith said today:

"He wonít be ready for the game and heís not travelling with us. Weíll decide later in the week if we can get him on the training ground."

If they're not even sure if he's getting on the training ground, I'd be amazed if they then risked him against Wolves.

Yeah - if he's not back in training yet, I can't see him being in the squad until Newcastle at the earliest.

We're safe from relegation and have had a massive bid for him in the summer....so we won't risk playing him and the £150 million war chest we will receive.

It sounds a bit odd, almost as if they donít know what the problem is.

He will probably end up being out for the 6 weeks originally mentioned in the leaked news. No point in the club notifying all our upcoming opponents so may as well take it one game at a time. Oh he is not quite ready, maybe next week......
