Chelsea players make up four of the top five. Wolves are surprisingly the only other team to have multiple players in the top 10.

Liverpool don't have a single member of their squad in the top 25, while Torres is the only Manchester City man to feature.

Manchester United have two of their young stars in the top 25, but it's rather strange that Williams' salary is reportedly close to double that of Greenwood's.

The latter is certainly due a pay rise...
