Seven Manchester City and two Manchester United stars are amongst the top 20 most valuable players in the Premier League, according to data from Transfermarkt.

Pep Guardiola’s champions dominate the list with their total outnumbering Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur combined.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils are represented twice on the list with their highest valued asset ranked joint third alongside two City counterparts.

However, it is a Liverpool and a Tottenham player who share top spot as the division’s MVPs at a market value of £90m.

Just one player from outside the so-called ‘big six’ makes the top 20 with the West Ham United star ranked joint 16th.

The data also shows that half of the top 20 players are current England internationals while Portugal have the next highest contingent with three and Belgium have two.

The remaining five are represented by players from Egypt, Senegal, Germany, Spain and South Korea.

Another interesting statistic from the site is that no player in the English top flight is currently valued at £100m or more unlike France’s Ligue 1 or the German Bundesliga.

Here are the top 20 current Premier League players based on their current market value (via Transfermarkt):
