Chelsea are the Premier League champions and it isn’t just that which makes them the one of the big boys of the league.
The Blues currently have the second heaviest squad in the league, just behind West Brom who lead the way.
Tony Pulis’ side are the heaviest in the division with an average weight of 77.7kg (12st 3lb) per player.
The Blues and Burnley are the next burliest sides with average weights of 76.9 and 76.8kgs (12st 1lb) respectively.
Manchester United however have an average weight of 74.5kgs (11st 10lb) which is only the 15th heaviest in the division and over 3kgs lighter per player than West Brom.
Manchester City’s players are the lightest in the league though at 73.1kgs (11st 7lb) on average, 1.4kgs lighter than United.
The signing of Nemanja Matic now means United have the second tallest outfield squad in the Premier League.
The 6ft 4in midfielder is Jose Mourinho’s sixth signing at Old Trafford and his fifth who’s over six foot tall.
It takes the average height of United’s outfield players to 182.6cm, or around 6ft.
That’s the second highest average in the Premier League behind only West Brom on 183.8cm (just over 6ft).
Prior to Matic’s arrival United’s average height was slightly lower at 182.2cm, which would only see them ranked joint sixth overall, although less than half a centimetre separated the averages of those ranked second to eighth.
As it stands, at 179.2cm (5ft 10in) Bournemouth have the shortest average height in the Premier League, almost 5cm shorter per player than West Brom.
Manchester City have the next lowest average at 179.4cm followed by Liverpool on 179.5cm and Everton on 179.8cm.
On the face of it then, it looks as though the big-tall squads like West Brom and United may be out to rough up their shorter counterparts.
