Bargain buys are one of the best-loved things in modern day football, with so many players earning far more than they should in the Premier League. We have already looked at the overpaid Premier League players, but here we look at those who are potentially, underpaid.

How have we crunched the numbers?

Before we reveal the findings we’ll take the briefest of moments to fill you in on how we conducted the research. The below findings are based on how much Premier League players have been paid per minute so far in the 2018/19 season. That’s from the opening weekend back in the hazy days of August (10th) through to the most recent wave of fixtures that came to a close on Monday 11th February.

We have deducted weekly wages from players for the weeks they've been out injured, then divided their collective earnings during the course of the campaign, and subsequently divided it by the minutes they've played in the Premier League this season.

It’s also important to note that for those players who left in the January transfer window, we have in turn deducted the weeks since they departed their respective clubs.

Revealed: The lowest paid Premier League stars based on 2018/19 minutes played

There are a few absolute gems in this list and top off the list is one of the Premier League hottest rising stars. Declan Rice of West Ham may have hit the headlines recently for switching his allegiance from Ireland to England but he is, in fact, top of this particular list. Earning just £3k a week he has been paid just £38 per Premier League minute this season, becoming a regular start for the West Ham side.

Denis Odoi of Fulham has perhaps shown why he earns just £8,900 a week with his poor performances this season contributing to Fulham being rock-bottom of the league although he slots into second place in this list with £109 per minute.

Some of the better performers are in the rest of the list with Matt Doherty, Ryan Sessegnon, Sol Bamba and Conor Coady making up the top six. A couple of Cardiff players such as Neil Etheridge and Victor Camarasa have also had impressive season and make the list but the big name on the list is breakthrough star Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who has established himself as one of the better full-backs in the division.
