Weekly Earnings: £200,000
The England captain and Tottenham Hotspur striker, Harry Kane rates among the game's clinical finishers. Four times he's been selected to the PFA Team of the Year. He's scored 188 times in 287 appearances, though in recent years Kane was hampered by injury.
A hamstring ailment requiring surgery cost him much of the 2019-20 campaign. An ankle injury hobbled Kane in 2018-19. There's been speculation that Kane might look for a move to a more fashionable club in search of honours.
9. Marcus Rashford
Weekly Earnings: £200,000
The Manchester United and England forward signed a four-year contract with the Reds prior to the start of the 2019-20 season that will keep Rashford at Old Trafford through 2023. He got off to a slow start to the year but Marcus Rashford caught fire after his first goal of the season earned a 1-1 tie against Liverpool.
He scored 16 goals over a 20-match stretch beginning with that tally. A stress fracture to his back put him out of the lineup. Rashford returned late in the year to score his 17th goal of the season.
8. Mohamed Salah
Weekly Earnings: £200,000
Liverpool's rise to the top of English football was fashioned in large part by the magical feet of two-time Golden Boot winner and Egyptian international Mohamed Salah. Helping Liverpool to the 2019-20 EPL title, Salah became the first Liverpool player to net 20 goals across all competitions two years in succession since Michael Owen.
He scored 70 times in his first 100 appearances for the club. When Liverpool won the 2019 FIFA World Club Cup, Salah was awarded the Golden Boot as Player of the Tournament.
7. Sergio Aguero
Weekly Earnings: £230,135
The Manchester City and Argentina international is widely considered one of the best strikers of his generation, as well as one of the best players in Premier League history. He's scored over 400 goals in his pro career and has fashioned 12 EPL hat-tricks. Six times during his career with the Citizens, he's scored at least 20 goals in EPL play. Factoring in all competitions, Sergio Aguero has topped 30 goals in five different seasons.
6. Anthony Martial
Weekly Earnings: £250,000
When Anthony Martial netted a hat-trick in a 3-0 win over Sheffield United late in the 2019-20 season, it was the first hat-trick by a Manchester United player in an EPL match since Robin Persie did it during the 2012-13 season.
The French international signed a new five-year contract with Man United in January of 2019. Martial's 17 goals in EPL play and 23 tallies in all competitions during the 2019-20 season were both new single-season marks for the forward.
5. Mesut Ozil
Weekly Earnings: £258,750
Among the most technically skilled and creative players in the Premier League, German international Mesut Ozil of Arsenal is at home as an attacking midfielder or being deployed as a winger.

Ozil's trophy case includes a FIFA World Cup and four FA Cups. Known for his playmaking skills, Ozil has always been far more likely to make a goal for a teammate than to finish the play on his own.
4. Paul Pogba

Weekly Earnings: £290,000
Versatility is the trademark of Manchester United’s French international. Paul Pogba is primarily utilized as a central midfielder. If need be, he can also play as an attacking or defensive midfielder, or even as a deep-lying playmaker.
Last year, Manchester United rejected a £27.6 million offer for their French World Cup winner from Spanish power Real Madrid. Ankle surgery hampered his 2019-20 campaign and Pogba scored just once in 16 EPL appearances.
3. Raheem Sterling
Weekly Earnings: £300,000
A winger and attacking midfielder for Manchester City and England, Raheem Sterling came to Man City from Liverpool in 2015 for £49 million, at the time the highest transfer fee ever paid for an English player. He's played for England in two World Cups and one UEFA Euro tournament.
The 2019-20 season was Sterling's best. He potted 20 goals in the EPL and 31 across all competitions. He's won an FA Cup and two EPL titles with City.
2. Kevin De Bruyne;
Weekly Earnings: £320,833
A stellar midfielder for Manchester City and Belgium, Kevin De Bruyne has won two EPL titles, an FA Cup and four League Cup titles playing for the Citizens. It's De Bruyne's ability as a playmaker that leaves him to stand head and shoulders above much of the talent in the EPL.
Kevin De Bruyne beats Liverpool trio Jordan Henderson, Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander-Arnold to win Premier League Player of the Season 👑— Sky Sports (@SkySports) August 16, 2020
He tied the EPL record with 20 assists in 2019-20, becoming the first player to register 20 assists in two of Europe's top five leagues. De Bruyne was awarded Premier League Player of the Season after a 13-goal, 20-assist campaign. He created 104 chances from open play, the most by any play in any of Europe';s top five leagues since 2006.
1. David De Gea
Weekly Earnings £375,000
Manchester United's Spanish international goalkeeper is the highest-earning player in the EPL. David De Gea signed a four-year contract extension with the club prior to the 2019-20 season. He's made more than 400 appearances for Man United and set an EPL record this season by posting his 113th clean sheet.
De Gea, 29, struggled through an error-prone season, leading some to question where his time as the club's No. 1 goalkeeping choice is nearing an end.
