Man Utd, Liverpool, Arsenal and others’ prize money following Premier League conclusion | Football | Sport


Premier League clubs are set to get their hands on their prize money after the season came to an end in emphatic fashion on Sunday afternoon. The final day of the campaign proved to be dramatic as Manchester City overcame a two-goal deficit against Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium to win 3-2 and land their fourth Premier League title in five years at the expense of Liverpool.

City have bagged themselves a staggering £44million after finishing top of the table as Rodri sandwiched a second half strike between a brace from substitute Ilkay Gundogan. Matty Cash and Philippe Coutinho had earlier struck for the Villans.

Liverpool’s disappointment will be softened by the fact they’ll pick-up £41.8m for their endeavours this season. The Reds beat Wolves 3-1 at Anfield on Sunday as Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Andy Robertson found the back of the net after Pedro Neto had put the visitors in front inside the opening three minutes. But that result wasn’t enough for Liverpool to clinch the title.

Chelsea were already guaranteed a third-place finish ahead of their 2-1 victory over Watford at Stamford Bridge and will see their bank balance increase by £39.6m as a result.

At the other end of the table, 17th-place Leeds will be rewarded for their Premier League survival with £8.8m after beating Brentford in west London. Everton, who finished one place above the Yorkshiremen, will get £11m.

But the teams who weren’t able to avoid the drop will only get a small amount of prize money. Burnley, who finished 18th after losing at home to Newcastle, will net themselves £6.6m, while Watford will be given just £4.4m and bottom of the table Norwich a measly £2.2m.
