Arsenal Star Could Get a 2-Game Ban

sokratis could get two game ban for yellow card

There is the possibility of Arsenal losing one of its highly-influential players to a two-match ban in the coming days.

Sokratis Papastathopoulos will have to be missed should he get a yellow card in Sunday's encounter with Everton.

The current working regulations for yellow cards in the Premier League are as follows:

5 yellow cards before the cut-off date after 19 league fixtures = 1 match ban
10 yellow cards before the cut-off date after 32 league fixtures = 2 match ban
15 yellow cards before the end of the season = 3 match ban

Arsenal play their 32nd game of the league when they visit Merseyside two days from now and being the next cut-off date, Sokratis who has accumulated a total of nine yellow cards will be suspended if he adds to that tally on that day.

Games with Watford and Crystal Palace are the potential matches the Greek international is at risk of missing.
