The financial gap between the six biggest clubs in the Premier League and the rest is as big as it has ever been and seemingly keeps growing.

According to analysts at the company Vysyble, one determining factor is the main reason for the increasing gap.

The revenue gap between the sixth and seventh biggest club in 2017/18 reached a new record. According to the analysts, the "Big Six" clubs are "destroying the Premier League with money."

To prevent the "Big Six" from becoming too powerful in the Premier League, Vysyble suggest that the proposed Super League with a salary cap might be the solution.
