Hard-hitting Granit Xhaka is regularly punished for his overenthusiasm, and the Swiss midfielder has tackled his way into the book five times in 21 league starts for the Gunners this term.
The 28-year-old was sent off when Arsenal last played Burnley in December, and it’s worth noting that three of his last cautions were picked up in road matches for the Gunners.
