John Stones who plays more as a midfielder nowadays for Manchester City hasn't been up to the mark this season. He is earning £13,000,000 annually which seems like not fair. John Stones has failed to replicate his last season's form after suffering with injury which has kept him away from the squad for most of the time.

3. Mason Mount (Manchester United) - 1.43/10

Things have not worked out so far for Mason Mount at Manchester United. Injuries have prevented him from gaining momentum. Mason Mount is taking home over £13 million annually which seems rather excessive. However, he features low in the list because there is still plenty of time for him to prove himself at Old Trafford.

4. Chris Richards (Crystal Palace) - 1.70/10

The 23-year-old Chris Richards is not having his best time at Palace this season in the Premier League. Despite his poor performances, Richards has featured in 12 matches so far in the Premier League this season but created almost nothing for his side. He is earning £2,860,000 annually which doesn't justify his stats at all.

5. Moisés Caicedo (Chelsea) - 2.41/10

Moises Caicedo sits in fifth place on the list, with Chelsea’s poor form not helping the Colombian show his true value on the field. But, this shouldn't be an excuse for a player who is earning £7,800,000 annually after Brighton sold him to Chelsea for a record-breaking £115 million deal.
