This Season’s Underachievers and Overachievers in the Premier League: The Daily EPL
Recently on The Daily EPL, we shared a league table with you that shows the depth chart between clubs in the Premier League based on the number of points they’ve racked up so far this season, instead of the conventional league table.
Now FinancialFairPlay.co.uk has published a depth chart that also shows who are this Premier League season’s underachievers and overachievers based on where they are in the table compared to the wages that they’ve spent. Here it is:
Looking at the table, you can see the underachievers — those clubs who have spent high sums on wages but are punching below their weight — include Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal, QPR and Aston Villa.
Meanwhile, those clubs who are punching above their weight include Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Everton, Swansea, Stoke, West Brom, Southampton and Swansea.
Take a lot at the chart and share any interesting observations you see in the comments section below.
