Leicester City will receive less prize money than four other Premier League sides, despite finishing the season 10 points clear at the top of the table as champions.

Arsenal, who leapfrogged rivals Tottenham to finish the season second in the league, are the highest earners thanks to being shown on TV more than any other side.

The Gunners will receive £101m from the TV deal this season while Claudio Ranieri's Leicester side will take £93.3m despite their stunning campaign producing arguably the most fascinating season in English football history.

Every Premier League side takes a flat £55m from the TV deal which is then boosted by merit payments for where they finish in the league plus money for every time they've been appeared on either BT Sport or Sky Sports.
