Liverpool lead league payments table

ESPN FC's Fernando Palomo discusses how Luis Suarez was able to reinvent himself at Anfield this season and become the Premier League's top scorer.

The Premier League has announced the total payments made to each of its 20 members for the 2013-14 season, with Liverpool leading the way.

Relief for Liverpool after their 3-2 win at Norwich.
Liverpool lost out in the league to Man City after dropping five points in their last three games.

Champions Manchester City earned 96.5 million pounds, representing a sharp rise from the 60.8 million pounds Manchester United earned from winning the league a year ago.

The league's new 5.5 billion-pound broadcast deal was behind the increase in payments, with second-placed Liverpool the top earners on 97.5 million pounds -- a consequence of more of their games being screened live by broadcasters.

The Premier League Founder Members' Agreement -- the contract signed by the initial clubs that formed the League in 1992 -- sets out that 50 percent of UK broadcast revenue be split equally between the 20 clubs, 25 percent paid in Merit Payments [depending on where a club finishes in the final league table], and the final 25 percent paid in Facility Fees each time a club's matches are broadcast in the UK.

All international broadcast revenue, and central commercial revenue, is split equally among the 20 clubs.

Premier League payments to clubs for 2013-14 [highest-lowest]:

1 Liverpool £97,544,336

2 Man City £96,578,329

3 Chelsea £94,106,163

4 Arsenal £92,870,080

5 Tottenham £89,663,884

6 Manchester United £89,161,831

7 Everton £85,027,727

8 Newcastle £77,379,252

9 Southampton £76,915,298

10 Stoke £75,679,215

11 Swansea £74,173,056

12 West Ham £73,671,003

13 Crystal Palace £73,207,049

14 Aston Villa £72,666,897

15 Sunderland £71,700,890

16 Hull £67,026,634

17 West Brom £65,790,551

18 Norwich £64,554,468

19 Fulham £63,318,385

20 Cardiff £62,082,302

Total £1,563,117,350
