anfield scaled

The smell of beer-soaked clothes, chants of rivalry and cheers for your team – all the things fans miss most when forced to watch football matches from their home rather than at their home stadium.

Wanting to invigorate this missed spirit in fans, decided to investigate the current top 10 Premier League teams, considering players’ salaries, and determining their minutes played so far in the 2020/21 season.

This data was then used to calculate just how long it could take each team (and player!) to earn £1 billion.

The Results:

The fastest team potentially making £1 billion is Tottenham Hotspur, with thanks to Winger Gareth Bale, whose yearly salary is £31,200,000. It would take Spurs just 2,662 minutes, 29 seconds! This is just over 44 hours.

In second place is Manchester City, with a time of 3,624 minutes and 29 seconds.

Chelsea ranks third, taking the team 4,140 minutes and 37 seconds to potentially earn £1 billion!

Not far behind is Manchester United, taking 4,333 minutes and 16 seconds. In fifth place is Liverpool (4,759 minutes, 15 seconds), sixth is West Ham United (7,224 minutes, 17 seconds), and in seventh is Southampton F.C (8,338 minutes, 16 seconds).

Rounding off the top 10, in eighth place, is Liverpool-based team Everton, taking them 8,762 minutes and 28 seconds – which is more than 6 days,3 times more than Tottenham Hotspur.

Aston Villa scores ninth with 13,682 minutes and 4 seconds, whilst Leicester City is in 10th place, taking a time of 68,794 minutes and 28 seconds.

Player Stats: further researched how long it could take each active team player to earn £1 billion.

They can reveal that Gareth Bale (Tottenham Hotspur) is the fastest player to potentially earn £1 billion – taking him just 5,160 minutes and 15 seconds! That is the equivalent of 86 hours.

The slowest player to potentially earn £1 billion is West Ham United’s Declan Rice, taking him 9,807,692 minutes and 18 seconds – which is more than 160,000 hours! The equivalent of this is just over 18 YEARS.
