After being battered by Brighton, Aston Villa prepared for blows from Douglas Luiz and Lucas Digne.

Both Douglas Luiz and Lucas Digne are one booking away from a one-game suspension, so they are walking a thin line in terms of discipline.

After seven Premier League games this season, the Villa tandem had accrued four cautions each. If a Premier League player receives five yellow cards within the first 19 games of the season, they are suspended for one game.

Only Premier League games will be subject to yellow card sanctions; any cup competition, such as the Europa Conference League, would not. The next six league games for Villa include matches against Wolves, West Ham, Luton Town, Nottingham Forest, Fulham, and Tottenham.
