Premier League clubs spent almost £6billion to assemble their recently announced Premier League 25-man squads.
Top flight clubs have submitted their squad lists for the 2020-21 season.
Each sides' 25-man list of players – as well as an unlimited number of under-21 players – have now been confirmed by the Premier League.
Players in those lists cost their clubs a combined total of aproximately £5.9billion in transfer fees.
Manchester City have the most expensive squad in the division.
The club spent £810.9m in transfer fees assembling the squad they’ve submitted to the Premier League.
That’s almost £200m more than the next most expensive squad in the division.
Manchester United's squad cost the Red Devils a combined total of £628.1m in transfer fees.
Chelsea have the next most expensive squad (£577.1m), followed by Arsenal (£454.8m), Liverpool (£454.3m), and Everton (£388.1m).
Liverpool would be higher up this list had it not been for the injury to Virgil van Dijk in the Merseyside Derby.
With the Dutch centre-back facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering a knee injury, Liverpool have chosen not to include him in their 25-man squad.
If you were to include his £75m transfer fee in Liverpool’s total then Jurgen Klopp’s side would be fourth in the list at £529.3m.
Similarly, Arsenal's £42million outcast Mesut Ozil is also written off, with the German persona non grata on matchdays at the Emirates.
Burnley have the cheapest squad in the league.
Just £82.6m was spent on transfer fees assembling their current squad.
Fulham come next at £94.4m, followed by West Brom (£97.7m), Leeds (£120.3m) and Sheffield United (£120.7m).
