One current and one former Burnley player feature in top 10 list of most expensive benchwarmers in the Premier League last season

New research has revealed each Premier League teams’ most expensive benchwarmer for the 2021-2022 season.

Data experts at OLBG have revealed the top flight's most expensive benchwarmers by looking at the number of minutes each player played last season against their annual salary to calculate who earned the most money for the least amount of time played.

Statisticians used Football Critic to find out the number of minutes each Premier League player played in the 2021/22 season.

They then used Spotrac to find out the salary of each Premier League player.

Analysts excluded any players who spent time at other clubs throughout the season, whether transferring to another team, going out on loan, or moving clubs as a free agent.

Can you guess which former Burnley goalkeepers appear in this top 10 list?
