Leeds United's suspension worries with Raphinha among four players walking tightrope at Chelsea

Leeds United travel to face Chelsea in the Premier League this weekend at Stamford Bridge - but what suspension worries does Marcelo Bielsa have?

Top flight rules state that a player who picks up five yellow cards before the conclusion of the 19th match of the season will serve a one-match ban.

The threshold after that is 10 yellow cards, which moves onto the 32nd game of the campaign with players serving a two-match ban should they reach that figure before the cut off point.

Leeds currently have four players on four yellow cards who will have to survive upcoming games against Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool without a booking to avoid a ban.

Bielsa has seen 17 of his squad members in total booked across the 2021/22 season so far after 15 games.
