This Season’s Underachievers and Overachievers in the Premier League: The Daily EPL

soccer ball This Seasons 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.

    As a math teacher, I think using unit rates makes more sense. Here is the cost in millions per point ratios.

    Everton 1.5 mil per point
    Tottenham 1.9 mil per point
    ManU 2.5 mil per point
    Arsenal 3.3 mil per point
    Chelsea 3.5 mil per point
    ManC 3.8 mil per point
    QPR 4.1 mil per point

    Of course the clubs that make the top 4 CL places can get a return on their investment, so one could do a cost benefit comparison as well since some money will get recouped. In QPR case they will lose even more if they don’t stay up.

    Further evidence of the great season United are having. I’m proud of Spurs for maximizing their return on their investment. I’m also very impressed by Everton. It’s good to see examples of clubs that have success without completely reckless spending.

    “Meanwhile, those clubs who are punching above their weight include Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Everton, Swansea, Stoke, West Brom, Southampton and Swansea.”

    Looks like Swansea do twice as much punching above their weight. But in all seriousness they have been an excellently run club over the past 10 years.
