To compete for titles every season, teams spend billions on the best players from around the world.

The 2019 clash between Liverpool and Man City tops the list

And now the most valuable clashes in the league’s history have been revealed.

The two starting XI’s as Liverpool took on Man City in the 2019-20 campaign cost a staggering £1.3bn combined.

Jurgen Klopp’s men won the mega-money clash 3-1 at Anfield, with the goals coming from Fabinho, Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Bernardo Silva.

Liverpool’s team that day set them back an incredible £707m.

The biggest fees came via Virgil van Dijk, who they purchased from Southampton in 2017 for £80m and goalkeeper Alisson signed from Roma a year later for £67m.

Luckily, Trent Alexander-Arnold cost them nothing as he came through the Reds’ academy to save a further dent into Liverpool’s bank account.

Despite splashing the cash, the club have been wise in the transfer market and Andy Robertson played in that match, who was cost a relatively cheap £8m from Hull six years ago.

Man City’s side was worth £604m all together with the largest amounts coming from the £55m they spent on Kevin De Bruyne and the £63m for Rodri.

Matches featuring Man City and Liverpool dominate the top ten.

Tottenham also feature regularly with £63m man Tanguy Ndombele and £42m signing Davinson Sanchez bumping up the cost of a Spurs side that also features cheaper deals like the £5m they paid MK Dons for Dele Alli.

Since Chelsea were purchased by Todd Boehly, the club has spent over £1billion on transfers and it is therefore no surprise to see the Blues make the rich list.

Their 4-4 thrilling draw against City earlier this season makes the cut with a combined £1.15bn spent on the starting XI’s that day.

Also coming from this campaign, the 1-1 draw between the current champions and Liverpool complete the top ten.

The players on show last month were worth a combined £1.14bn.
