A plenty of money is rolling out in the Premier League, but judging by the starting lineups on view last time out, it is still no guarantee of success - with Leicester continuing to rewrite the rule book.
Most expensive 11 of all the teams put out last weekend, are under Manchester city, but there was little love for their £233.6m side, as they lost at home to Tottenham.
On the other side, 18th most expensive tag goes to Leicester's familiar line-up, but that has not stopped the Foxes, to find themselves on the top of the Premier League.
The two teams to assemble a cheaper starting 11 than Claudio Ranieri's side are Watford and Bournemouth - with Benik Afobe accounting for £10m of the Cherries' £11.3m spend.
While Watford are a whopping 10 slots higher in the Premier League than their position in the spending table, Eddie Howe's men are five places higher.
Chelsea, being the third most expensive starting line-up at £197.2m, but still in the bottom half of the table is tagged as an overspending underachiever of this season.
The return on Newcastle's considerable investment is arguably even worse as Steve McClaren's side is currently 11 positions lower than their £72.6 spending would suggest.

Here is the complete list of the cost of Premier League teams' starting lineups and how that differs from their position in the table.
