He took in 43 games in 2016/17, returning 146 yellow cards and three red cards.

His highest card count that season was eight yellows in the game between Crystal Palace and Hull City. He showed seven yellows in the game between Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion and seven yellows have appeared on four occasions.

He took in 46 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a whopping total of 169 yellow cards but only one red card.

He was most card happy in the game on February 14 between Arsenal and Leicester where he showed eight yellow cards and one red card.
