Chelsea midfielder Jorginho is just one yellow card away from getting a two-match ban in the Premier League.

The Italian international was booked during the 2-2 draw against Leicester City on Saturday and it was his ninth yellow card of the season.

According to Premier League rules, a player gets suspended for accumulating 10 yellow cards before matchday 32.

To avoid a two-game suspension, Jorginho would have to go without a booking for 6 more games but that looks difficult at the moment, given he leads the Premier League table when it comes to yellow cards.

The next Chelsea player with the most yellow cards is Mateo Kovacic, who currently has 7 yellow cards.
