Cautionary Tale For Duo
Ryan Shawcross and Marko Arnautovic are walking a disciplinary tightrope.
The duo are just one booking away from picking up a one-match ban.
And they must avoid a yellow card until the New Year- 11 matches- if there are to avoid a suspension.
If they were to earn a ban then it would open the door for others to step up to the plate and, potentially, a rare outing for Ramadan Sobhi on the wing.
But that is a conversation to be had after the event.
Walking the tightrope shouldn’t change the way two committed players go about their game, and whilst they would obviously prefer to avoid a ban, the team is more important.
