Leicester City have won the Premier League with two games to spare, marking one of the greatest achievements in the history of sport.

It's 21 years since a team other than Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City or Manchester United have won the title and the Foxes' fairytale story shows that you cannot always buy success. When the season kicked off in September, Manchester City's squad was valued at £411 million. Leicester City won the Premier League this year despite having a squad worth a mere £53 million.

This chart shows the total cost of Premier League squads in September 2015.
