Max Aarons is walking a disciplinary tightrope for Norwich City ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash with Arsenal at Carrow Road.
The 19-year-old picked up his fourth yellow card of the season during Saturday's 2-0 win at Everton, getting involved in some angry pushing and shoving with Toffees defender Mason Holgate after the hosts had tried to hurry Todd Cantwell off the pitch as he received treatment on his ankle.
Both players were booked and a VAR check cleared them of anything more serious but it leaves Aarons with six games to avoid a fifth booking - which would activate a one-game ban - ahead of the amnesty at the halfway point of the season.
That is after the 19th game, which for the Canaries is a Boxing Day clash at Aston Villa. Kenny McLean and Marco Stiepermann have three bookings to their name for City as well.
Ten yellows activates a two-game ban, with that suspension amnesty arriving after the 32nd game.
