    Gameweek 8 saw two more players topple off the Suspension Tightrope as we head into the second international break of the season. Sunderland centre-back Sebastian Coates was the first guilty party after earning his fifth yellow of 2015/16 in the second half of yesterday’s home draw against West Ham.

    A couple of players failed to make it past yesterday’s deadline extension and resultantly toppled off the Suspension Tightrope in the weekend’s round of fixtures. Both Neil Taylor and Victor Wanyama earned their tenth caution of the campaign and are now set to miss the next two Gameweeks as a result of their indiscretions.

Sebastian Larsson toppled off the edge, having received his tenth yellow for pulling at the shirt of Newcastle striker Emmanuel Riviere in the Wear-Tyne derby […]

  7. Nemanja Matic became the seventh player to tiptoe onto the Suspension Tightrope this weekend, joining Cesc Fabregas, Ciaran Clark, Phil Bardsley, Sebastian Larsson, Victor Wanyama and Neil Taylor on nine yellow cards – just one misstep away from a two-match suspension.
