Chelsea were actually only the 3rd biggest spenders during the 2016/17 season with the two Manchester clubs leading the way.747man wrote:Fixed it for yer, Bob !! Congratulations to Chelsea on BUYING the Premiership...
Looking at the list,Spurs,Liverpool,Bournemouth,Stoke and WBA probably had the best value for money ?
Fans of Crystal Palace and West Ham will be wondering if their money was wisely spent ?
Everton came 7th on the list but their spending was largely funded by the sale of John Stones,otherwise they would have been The Premierships most frugal outfit.
List supplied by The Daily Express.
1.Manchester City 181.05 million GBP
2.Manchester United 157.25
5.Crystal Palace 85.26
8.West Ham 70.98
9.Tottenham Hotspur 70.13
20.West Bromwich Albion 32.22
Last nights results mean that Swansea are almost safe and Hull have to win at Crystal Palace tonight or they will realistically be relegated due to an inferior goal difference.
Manchester City,Liverpool and Arsenal chasing the last 2 Champions League places......Manchester United out of it unless they spring a big surprise at the final match to be played at White Hart Lane tonight.
Crystal Palace v Hull 6pm Thai
West Ham v Liverpool 8.15pm Thai
Spuds v United 10.30pm Thai
Manchester City 2 Leicester 1.......enjoyable game but should Citys first goal have been ruled out for offside ? Bad luck for Leicester,also,with Mahrez's spot kick being ruled void as he inadvertently played the ball twice.
Bournemouth 2 Burnley 1 ; Middlesborough 1 Southampton 2 ; Sunderland 0 Swansea 2 ;
Big,big win for Swansea.....Sunderland booed off at half time and full time.
More easy for Southampton than the score suggests as they missed a penalty.
Bournemouth have had an excellent season and an outside chance they could finish as high as 8th in the table.
Stoke 1 Arsenal 4 ;
Easy for the Gunners......Stokes players dreaming of sunning themselves in Burslem this summer,already.
