It has been revealed that several Premier League stars are amongst those who have won the most penalties over the course of the past six seasons of those in the top five European leagues.

There are several ‘usual suspects’ in the list of top nine players to have won penalties, though stars like Cristiano Ronaldo aren’t as high up the leaderboard as one would expect.

Manchester City ’s Raheem Sterling tops the list overall, he has won 18 penalties over the course of the last six seasons so far.

The Manchester United star is joint-ninth with nine penalties won since the start of the 2016/17 campaign.

Italy international Ciro Immobile has won one more than that aforementioned duo, with Kylian Mbappe taking the second spot with 16 penalties won.

Players going down easily and trying to con the referee into making a decision is a weekly talking point in the English top-flight, and even the introduction of VAR hasn’t entirely eliminated the ‘ugly side’ of football.

The dominance of the Premier League continues into the eighth spot, with Arsenal ’s Alexandre Lacazette and Chelsea ’s Timo Werner both winning 10 penalties each.
