    How did we calculate these statistics?

    This page uses consumer debt figures from UK Finance, which includes data from high street banks and credit unions (but not payday lenders) for unsecured credit such as personal loans, overdrafts and credit cards.

    The data comes from several major lenders, and accounts for around 60 percent of the market. This means that the actual figures on UK consumer debt are likely to be much higher.

    We've used this information - as well as postcode data from The Resolution Foundation - to show you the situation in your region and near to your favourite Premier League club.

    We've combined this with published data from Sporting Intel and Swiss Ramble to show debt, prize payments, revenue and sponsorship figures of Premier League teams and what these figures show in the context of the finances of your area.
