Most Overpaid EPL Players Based On Minutes Played: Victor Moses, Okaka Make Top 10Published: February 19, 2019
Chelsea-owned winger Victor Moses and Watford loanee Stefano Okaka have been named among the top ten overpaid players in the English Premier League based on minutes played in the 2018-2019 season.
According to research conducted by TheSportsman.com, Moses was paid £66,346 for every minute he spent on the pitch prior to his loan move to Fenerbahce.
The former Nigeria international logged 26 minutes in total in matches against Huddersfield and Liverpool this term, and is the seventh most overpaid player in the topflight.
Nigeria-eligible striker Okaka is tenth on the list, with Watford paying him £33,409 per minute.
It is claimed Moses takes home 75,000 pounds per week at Chelsea while the Hornets man, who played 22 minutes before he was loaned out to Udinese, pockets £35,000 a week.
Crystal Palace duo Pape Souare and Scott Dann, Tottenham Hotspur's Georges-Kevin N’koudou, Chelsea defenders Gary Cahill and Davide Zappacosta are the top five highest paid players in the Premier League per minute of action in that order.
