Liverpool have spent a total of £7.5 million per point in the Barclays Premier League, between last October when the new owners purchased the club and the end of last season, according to the FourFourTwo annual football rich list.

Fenway Sports Group purchased the club last October from previous owners Hicks and Gillett, and have taken the club from being close to ruin to in a stable financial position and capable of challenging for Champions League football.


 

 

The amount of money that Liverpool have spent is almost £2 million more per point than Manchester City have spent since their Middle Eastern owners took over in September 2008.

Since Kenny Dalglish took over the reigns at Liverpool, he has spent over £100 million on bringing players to Anfield. Luis Suarez, Andy Carroll and Jordan Henderson are just a few names Dalglish purchased, with the three combining to cost the club over £75 million.

While Liverpool made some big purchases in the 2010 summer transfer window, three changes in managers within a year brought the club instability. Dalglish’s emergence in January helped give the club more of a plan for the long-term future, but players are still gelling with one another, and seven new signings this summer have put Liverpool into something of a rebuilding period.

In contrast, Everton have spent £48,192.77 per point since Bill Kenwright bought the club in 2004, up until the end of last season.

Since 2004, Liverpool have won one Champions League and one FA Cup. They are yet to claim silverware for new owners Fenway Sports Group.

Meanwhile, since 2008, City have won one FA Cup.
