  6. Alonso          – 6.5m – 161
  7. Azpilicueta   – 6.0m – 158
  8. Digne           – 6.0m – 158
  9. Walker          – 6.0m – 150

  19. Rudiger         – 6.0m – 118
  20. Duffy             – 5.0m – 115

 

Next, we looked at their Points per match in 2018/2019 divided by their price in 2019/2020. As mentioned before, Points per match was used to mitigate the fact that some of these players may have missed parts of the season through injury, rotation.

 

(Points per match – Season 2018) divided by (Price – 2019)

  1. TAA               – 7.0m – 0.91
  2. VVD              – 6.5m – 0.85
  3. Robertson     – 7.0m – 0.84
  4. Alonso          – 6.5m – 0.80
  5. Laporte         – 6.5m – 0.78
  6. Coleman       – 5.5m – 0.78
  7. Luiz               – 6.0m – 0.77
  8. Digne            – 6.0m – 0.75
  9. Walker          – 6.0m – 0.75
  10. PVA               – 5.5m – 0.71
  11. Keane           – 5.5m – 0.71
  12. Azpilicueta   – 6.0m – 0.70
  13. Pereira          – 6.0m – 0.70
  14. Boly              – 5.0m – 0.66
  15. Duffy            – 5.0m – 0.66
  16. Ake               – 5.0m – 0.64
  17. Doherty        – 6.0m – 0.63
  18. AWB              – 5.5m – 0.62
  19. Chilwell         – 5.5m – 0.60
  20. Rudiger         – 6.0m – 0.58

 

An interesting pattern develops here where most of the heavy hitters (Robertson, VVD, TAA) feature highly in both the lists. This is probably because the price range is much narrower for defenders as compared to forward and midfielders. Thus, it might be worthwhile to spend the money and buy more heavy hitters.
