Liverpool earned more than Manchester City from television revenue and prize money in last season's Premier League, even though Jurgen Klopp's men missed out in the title race against Pep Guardiola's really re-crowned champions.

All Premier League clubs are guaranteed £80.4m as part of their share of the lucrative global television deals that have been struck by Premier League chiefs, with additional money rolling in every time a club is screened live on TV.

The international television deals struck by the Premier League bolster that 'annual retainer' fee considerably, with broadcast right in China, the Middle East and America contributing to £40.7m for each Premier League club annually, with domestic rights offering £34.8m.

With all but nine of their league games in the 2018/19 season being broadcast live on either Sky Sports or BT Sport in the UK and a £1.16m fee paid for each appearance, it is Liverpool who have received the biggest payout from television appearances as the Anfield club will collect £36.6m on top of their basic fee and prize money for finishing second in the title race.

Here is a breakdown of how England's elite clubs have hit the financial jackpot this season, with Liverpool and Tottenham's windfalls here set to be boosted by around £80m from their run to the Champions League final in Madrid on June 1st.

The number of televised games for each club appears in brackets:

Liverpool - £151m (29) 

Manchester City - 149.5m (26)

Chelsea - £144.4m (25)

Tottenham - £143.6m (26)

Arsenal - £140.6m (25)
