Premier League clubs' wages have been revealed from last season... and it makes impressive reading for Arsenal and Fulham.

The Gunners finished second behind Manchester City at the end of the 2022/23 campaign despite having only the FIFTH highest wage bill at £235million.

Mikel Arteta's men were a long way off Man City - who have the most expensive set of salaries at £423m.

But the most surprising disparity is between Arsenal and the trio of Liverpool [£373m], Chelsea [£340m] and Man Utd [£331m].

The North London outfit's wage bill is between £96m and £138m less than those three clubs, an incredible set of statistics, particularly when you consider the struggles of Chelsea and Man Utd.

Chelsea finished in the bottom half last season and are still there nearly 12 months on.

Meanwhile, Man Utd finished third but below Arsenal in the 2022/23 campaign... and have dropped to sixth this season.

Tottenham [£209m] are the only other club to exceed £200m in wages.

Aston Villa [£194m] come next, followed by the relegated Leicester [£182m] and financially-stricken Everton [£159m].

Meanwhile, at the other end of the wage table, Fulham [£90m] and West London rivals Brentford [£99m] are the only two clubs to have had a squad salary worth less than £100m last season.

And remarkably, both sides finished in the top half last season.

Brentford ended the campaign in ninth, while Fulham, who had the lowest wages in the division, managed a thoroughly impressive 10th-place finish.

All 20 clubs' wages add up to a seismic £3.8BILLION, although half of that total comes from the traditional big six.
