Published 4 Comments

There is nothing worse than seeing your favourite players succumb to long-term injuries.

But the physical nature of football means layoffs are inevitable from time to time with some being significantly longer than others.

Not only does the team suffer without their best players, but the club are also left paying the player's wages despite the fact they are useless to their cause.

At least the fans have something to blame for their team's shortcomings.

Here we take a look at the injury crises that have affected the Premier League this season and see who has had to pay their injured players the most.

Thanks to research from The Richest we can now bring you the figures from each of the top 10 teams.

In line with the website that conducted the research, the teams will be ordered in the months lost to injury, not the money spent of wages.
