A study undertaken by Catapult Sports, in conjunction with 21st Club, into the cost of injuries has uncovered that English Premier League (EPL) clubs paid an estimated £166m to injured players throughout the 2018/19 season.

The figure, which equates to 14% of the fixed wage expenditure across the EPL, saw both Manchester clubs contribute the most to the total with Man United paying £20.7m and champions Manchester City spending £23m on injured players.
