REVEALED: The ten most fouled players in the Premier League this season

If you can't beat them... Bring them down.

Eden Hazard is head and shoulders clear of the pack on this list.

Two Arsenal midfielders surprisingly make the list, along with a rouge entry from Cardiff’s number 11.

Here are the top ten most fouled players in the Premier League so far this campaign.
