Burnley top Premier League's 'value for money' table

Burnley will finish at the top of this season's 'value for money' table which measures average pay per player per point and cross references it with the actual amount of points that that team has received and how much they have spent during the season.

Burnley will finish the season in seventh and head into Sunday's season finale with Bournemouth with 54 points from 37 games. Sean Dyche's side had an average basic first-team pay of £1,371,500 per player and an average pay per player per point of £25,398.

West Ham United look set to finish at the bottom of the 'value for money' table with an average basic first-team pay of £2,936,870 and an average pay per player per point of £77,286, which yielded the Hammers just 38 points and two different managers.

Tottenham were the best ranked top-six club with an average basic first-team pay of £3,154,667 and an average pay per player per point of £42,631, while Manchester United were the worst ranked top-six side with an average basic first-team pay of £5,241,185 and an average pay per player per point of £67,195.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche was one of six managers to be nominated for the Premier League's manager of the year award.

Dyche praised his players for the nomination and said that they are the people that deserve the recognition if he is to be awarded with any individual accolade.

"The manager of the year can only come from the players. Without them you can’t be manager of the year," he said.

"They deserve whatever comes, if anything comes."
