The team’s manager Sean Dyche mentioned that the team had been priced out of the league. “The market, somewhere down the line, insists you need enough money to compete,” Dyche said, according to The Mirror . “But you’ve got to have the money to do that, otherwise you sacrifice the future of the club and that’s not something the club wanted to do – and rightly so.” The top scorers of the English Premier League include Sergio Agüero of Manchester City with 22 goals, Harry Kane of the Tottenham Hotspur with 20 points and Diego Costa of Chelsea with 19 points. Chelsea is ranked number one in the league.
