Liverpool will avoid two disciplinary setbacks as Premier League rules change

Liverpool avoided potential disciplinary problems after receiving their first yellow card pardoned in the Premier League.

WataruEndo and Darwin Nunez both traveled to Burnley on Boxing Day. Because they knew their fifth top-flight booking of the season would be ruled out of a New Year’s trip to Newcastle United. Endo received a season warning in 4 league games. Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with Nunes on Saturday faced a similar situation to last weekend’s goalless draw with Manchester United at Anfield.

Nunez opened the scoring while Endo produced another impressive display in the 2-0 win over Burnley, with both players narrowly avoiding a yellow or red card. They will prepare for Monday’s clash with Newcastle. The Premier League will now see a two-match ban for any player who receives 10 yellow cards on Day 32 and a three-match ban for any player who receives 15 yellow cards before the end of the season.

Alexis McAllister had the most league bookings at Liverpool this season and received a one-match ban after picking up five yellow cards in November, while Trent Alexander-Arnold was booked at Burnley and finished with four points behind Endo and Nunes. However, Liverpool will soon be without Endo as he will be out for up to five weeks after the Newcastle game to represent Japan in the Asian Cup.
