Leicester City have come a long way over the past few seasons but the financial gap to the Big Six remains significant, highlighted by the fact that Tottenham's turnover in 2018/19 stood at more than twice theirs' at £522.6 million to £202.4 million.

In terms of wages, however, the pair are more equal as Leicester City have been increasing their expenditure with spending of £169.6 million compared to Tottenham's £202.6 million.

Interestingly, Leicester City have outspent Tottenham on intermediaries over the past five seasons at £50.6 million to £46.6 million.
