Chelsea, West Ham and Man Utd stars feature in Premier League's most overpaid players table

A look at the Premier League's most overpaid players according to data experts, with Chelsea and West Ham United stars featuring.

Chelsea have built up a reputation of big spending over recent years, with the arrival of Todd Boehly radically changing the club's transfer approach. The Blues have spent huge sums of money to land transfer targets, but many of the deals have not paid off, at least not yet, while London rivals West Ham United have spent more wisely.

In that vein, Ticketgum have taken a look at the data to see which players have underperformed the most in comparison to the wage they currently receive from their respective clubs. Each player gets a score of out of 10, and both Chelsea and West Ham players feature on the current overpaid list. Take a look below at the current top 12 underperformers, although keep in mind that factors such as injury can impact these ratings.
