13 sendings off from us in recent years and a two in the same game in a few of them.
The two cards stat may be worrying, although two of those second reds were obtained by Phil Neville, and that was a particularly bad little spell, with 9 cards across 4 1/2 years and 7 of them ours.. but three games with two reds. Take that bizarre run doubles out of it and it's more balanced.
Worth noting is that in that period of 13 cards going back to '97, 9 have come at home. Liverpool's 8 in the same period include 3 at Goodison, so the home team gets the red more often than the away team, and it's particularly bad at Goodison. Even if you discount the doubles, it's still 6-3 against us at home.
However, Rodwell's card in 2011 was the last, and derbies have tended to actually have some football in them the last few years, which might account for the reduction in cards. In that bad card spell '03-'07, we were much more physical as a team, and particularly played that card against CL teams. Added to the fire of the derby and maybe it's not surprising we got so many then, and maybe not so likely to happen now.
Mentioned this in another thread, but only two likely players on Saturday have previous for derby reds, Gerrard and Lucas.
