We know that the Premier League players of today are not short of a few quid.

The money that has been pumped into the league through multi-billion pound sponsorship and tv broadcasting deals is staggering and something the most optimistic person would not have been able to predict prior to the rebrand in 1992.

Top-flight giants such as Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City have some huge earners on their books.

But do you actually know which players are paid the most to do their thing in England’s top-flight.

Well, we’ve done the work for you and compiled a list of the top-10 highest earners (all figures according to spotrac.com) in the Premier League….

The England captain is the only Spurs player on the list but if there was one rightly deserving of being the North London club’s highest earner it’s him. The superstar striker has bagged 136 Premier League goals in just 198 matches. At £200,000 per-week, hitting the back of the net certainly pays the bills.
