The Most Expensive Team?

Reading the title, I bet you'd go 'Oh bugger! it's Chelsea, isn't it?'

The answer is nope!

Perhaps after signing Nani, Anderson and Owen Hargreaves, it's ManYoo?

Still no!

Instead, the most expensive team in the Premiership is ManYoo's most bitter rival, Manchester City! You must be stumped by now as to how a team that scored a pathetic and meagre 10 goals at home all season is the most expensive team in the Premiership.

Here's why.

Despite having one of the cheapest season tickets amongst the league teams, which is calculated at around £385 - £550, the fans are said to have spent on the least 'value-for-money' deals out there because to pay that amount to score just 10 league goals at the City of Manchester Stadium means that the amount of money paid per goal is so high that it's one of the worst deals out there.

According to the report from Fool.co.uk, the fans that got their season ticket forked out £46.75 per goal. Whereas their great rivals, ManYoo, got a double treat as their fans only paid £14.12 per goal and it puts them 18th on the 'Worth it or not table'.

Surprise comes from Ewood Park as they managed to score 31 goals at home last season and with a relatively low price for their season tickets, the fans were calculated to pay £11.25 per goal.

Column one is the season ticket prices, then the goals scored at home and then followed by the 'cost per goal'

Man City £385 - £550 10 £46.75
Arsenal £885 - £1825 43 £31.50
West Ham £595 - £850 24 £30.10
