Liverpool set to land jaw-dropping £144m windfall, Michael Edwards can now bring PL glory to Anfield
If Liverpool can beat Brighton on Sunday they are in line to land a quite astonishing £144million windfall.
That figure comes from the Daily Mail who have worked out (on current Premier League standings) that Liverpool will pocket the third-biggest amount of TV money.
Man United might have lost the Premier League title to Man City, but they’re going to rake more cash – £148.9million to £147.4million.
Liverpool are right behind and are set to make £79.15million (the share that every Premier League club gets), along with £31.76million for their live games and a further £32.98million for finishing third.
If Tottenham lose and Liverpool win then they’ll get an extra £1.94million for finishing third.

It’s a glimpse into the jaw-dropping sums of money England’s top football clubs earn – and this is before Champions League money.
It’s also the perfect time to re-invest the cash into the team.
Liverpool have had a great season and it could end with the biggest trophy of them all as Jurgen Klopp gets set to contest the Champions League final.
They’ve fallen short in the Premier League but, with the arrival of Naby Keita, we think they’re only three players short of a Premier League-winning squad.
The £144m windfall would go a long way towards a new goalkeeper, a centre-back and a player who can link with the lethal attackers that Klopp has assembled.
The man who will be responsible, along with Klopp, for spending this money in the summer is Michael Edwards, the club’s sporting director.
He’s enjoyed a rapid promotion through the club since he joined in 2011 as head of analytics, and he and the manager form a tight team.
Presuming the funds will be released to invest in the squad, they now have everything they need to bring the Premier League title to Anfield for the first time.
And no-matter how much that costs, that will be worth it.
