Tottenham Hotspur rank above Liverpool in the list of the Premier League's most valuable clubs.

New research by football finance expert Dr Tom Markham, published on Sporting Intelligence, shows Manchester United as the most valuable football club in England with a net worth of nearly £2billion.

The Red Devils top the Premier League pile, with Arsenal ranking above Manchester City and current top-flight champions Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Tottenham are best placed behind the Premier League's 'big four', ahead of Liverpool and Southampton.

The value of the White Hart Lane outfit is set to soar following the completion of their new stadium, according to Markham’s research. This is set to further boost the 60% growth that the London club has already experienced in the past 24 months.

Meanwhile, the findings also revealed that Newcastle United are the only club to have dropped in value - by 20 per cent - after seeing their worth go from £276m to £221m in the same period.

Elsewhere, Stoke City, Crystal Palace and Swansea City are surprisingly all worth more than Aston Villa, while Sunderland are just one position above top-flight new boys Bournemouth - as the south coast club prop up the Premier League value table.
