Costly Injuries provides a dynamic ranking showing the total value and percentage of a teams current injury list. It therefore helps to understand how hamstrung a team is on game day!
We also provide a live ticker that shows the accumulating value (cost) of the players on the sidelines so far today. We calculate this by adding the total value of the injured player(s), dividing by the number of seconds in a season and then showing how it accrues during the day.
NB: currently the Costly Injuries table below shows the ranking during the final week of the 13/14 Premier League season
