Premier League Pounds v Points – who spent best in the summer?

February 6th, 2020 Home, Media & Journalism, Uncategorized

With the Premier League at the half-way point and with the January window nearly upon – what better time to assess how the Premier League clubs performed in the summer’s transfer window…

OddsMonkey has looked into the figures to see just who spent wisely…and who didn’t!

It is little surprise to many that league leaders Liverpool come out on top as they spent relatively little in the summer, but not far behind for relegation threatened Norwich.

Crystal Palace’s excellent start to the season sees them as high as third.

At the bottom, it no surprise to see big summer spenders Aston Villa some way adrift at the bottom given their poor start to the campaign – next come Everton and Arsenal and is a clear indicator of why both have just appointed new managers.

Then come Manchester United – again highlighting their general struggles this term.

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “Given Liverpool spent little in the summer, it was no surprise to see them being the best team when it comes to Point x Pounds and the same with Norwich as they also – but not sure many people anticipated the likes of Crystal Palace to be riding high.

“At the other end and Aston Villa’s big spending in the summer and has not translated into points, and that is why they are firmly in the relegation battle, and just above them the evidence is there as to why both Everton and Arsenal chose to change their managers in the last month.”
