Liverpool want bigger Premier League TV money share

Cape Town - Premier League clubs are set to discuss a proposal that would change the way money from overseas broadcasting deals is distributed.

Remember: this is a list of the top 20 performing players right now in the Premier League.

The London club went down 4-0 to United away from home at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon. "Clubs unanimously agreed to adjourn the meeting to allow further discussion".

With the worldwide break here, it is time to take stock of the players who have been ripping it up in the Premier League.

Substitutes: Jesse Lingard (for Mkhitaryan, 66) 6, Anthony Martial (for Rashford, 72) 7, Ander Herrera (for Mata, 77) 7. Later, in the 35 minute of the game, Marouane Fellaini volleyed in Ashley Young's cross to double United's lead.

Last season the plan would have seen each club given a guaranteed £25 million in overseas TV income rather than the £39m they received, meaning 20th-placed Sunderland would have been £14m worse off.

Reports suggest nine clubs presently favour the proposed new distribution plan which will need 14 in order to pass. Failure to reach agreement could revive talk of a possible a breakaway league or even the idea of playing top-flight games overseas.

But at a meeting on Wednesday, no vote was taken due to a lack of support.
