How many Premier League yellow cards does a player need to get for a suspension?
A player is subject to a ban after they receive five yellow cards in all domestic competitions before the cut-off or five after the cut-off.

They are also subject to a ban when they reach 10 and 15 yellows in the same season.

How many games is the suspension?
The player is suspended for one game when they reach the five yellow card limit.

They are then given two matches for 10 yellow cards and three matches for 15 yellow cards.

If they reach a total of 20 for the season they are required to attend a special hearing at the FA to discuss their on-field behaviour.

When does the Premier League wipe all the cards for the season?
The cut-off date for yellow cards in the Premier League is December 31. (In the Football League, it is November 30).

It means a player receiving their fifth yellow card of the season on January 1 will not receive a ban.

However, a player receiving 10 yellows by the end of the season will still be given a ban, so the cards are not completely wiped from a player’s record.

Judging by the above explanation Chelsea Wingback Victor Moses is not in danger as all cards he picked up have been wiped out by the turn of the year.
