13. Crystal Palace – £68m
Crystal Palace finished 12th last season, a place they are more or less comfortable with. The highest-paid player in their squad is club legend Wilfried Zaha, who makes a weekly salary of £130,000.
12. Nottingham Forest – £74m
Nottingham Forest have the biggest squad in the Premier League with 38 first-team players. The highest-paid player of the club is Jesse Lingard, with a weekly wage of £200k, while Dean Henderson earns £100k per week.
11. Leicester City – £80m
Leicester finished 8th last season, slightly lower than expected. However, this season has been nothing short of a disaster for them, as the club currently sits just above the relegation zone. Thus, they have some catching up to do. Club legend Jamie Vardy is the highest-paid player in the squad with a salary of £140,000 per week.
10. Everton – £81.5m
Everton’s downfall has been shocking, especially with the fact that they have spent a decent amount of money in recent years. Last season, they only finished 16th. This season, they are no better. They have quite a lot of re-building to do. The highest-paid player in the team is Jordan Pickford with a weekly wage of £125k. The trio of Abdoulaye Doucouré, Yerry Mina and Alex Iwobi gets weekly wages of £120k each.
9. Newcastle United – £82m
Ever since the change in ownership, Newcastle have been splashing some cash in the market. Bruno Guimaraes and Alexander Isak are the highest-paid players at the club with a weekly salary of £120,000.
8. West Ham – £84m
After a good last season, West Ham are struggling this season. They have been poor both home and away and are flirting with relegation zones. The highest-paid player in the team is Lucas Paqueta with a weekly wage of £150,000.
7. Aston Villa – £92m
Lucas Digne is the highest earner at the club, with a weekly wage of £160k. Last season, they only finished 14th, which is something they need to work on. They have a decent squad with a new manager at the helm and the fans are hopeful for a better finish this term.
