Everton FC just scrape into the Deloitte top 20 richest clubs list behind the likes of the mighty Southampton, West Ham Utd and Leicester City.

The ranking is based on revenue stream. Current Premier League leaders Manchester City saw revenue rise to £453.5m and closed the gap slightly on German champions Bayern, for whom income fell to £505.1m.

Tottenham climbed to 11th as they enjoyed additional revenue from playing European games at Wembley.

Leicester, who also benefitted from a run to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, rose to 14th, overtaking traditional heavyweights such as Inter Milan.

West Ham climbed to 17th, their highest position in the 21 years of the Deloitte ranking, owing to an increase in matchday revenue following their move to the London Stadium.

Southampton and Everton's entry into the top 20 was largely attributable to improved Premier League television money.
