Manchester United are the worst value for money team in the Premier League.
According to figures from The Times, when you consider how much each top flight club spent on wages compared their points tally, Jose Mourinho’s men struggle.
Based on wages spent in the 2015-16 season – before Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic drove up the Old Trafford wage bill – United are the league’s top payers.
The red half of Manchester splashed out an incredible £232.2million to their stars last term.
Based on their 2016-17 points tally of just 65, that works out at an astonishing £3.57m paid per single point.
Only one other team in the top flight has spent more than £3m per point… relegated Sunderland.
David Moyes’ Black Cats splashed £83.9m on wages last term, to pick up just 24 points – at £3.5m per point.
Other big-spenders unsurprisingly include Liverpool (£2.85m per point), Arsenal (£2.83m), Manchester City (£2.74m) and champions Chelsea (£2.56m).
At the other end of the table it’s even more good news for Tottenham who are the lowest spenders per Premier League point.
Mauricio Pochettino has worked wonders at White Hart Lane since taking over, leading his Spurs to back-to-back title challenges.
Last term, the north London giants spent just £104.6m on wages – well under half what United spent – while earning an impressive 80 points so far this season.
Their total spent per point is a mere £1.3m – nearly a third of what Mourinho and Co shelled out.
