Chelsea remains top of the Premier League table after nine games. The players can go home smiling knowing their job for the weekend is done, the can just relax and wait for their respective wages. Speaking of wages, the Premier is one of the highest wage paying leagues in the world.

The riches available to clubs like Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, and others allow them to pay high wages to players. Note that a player's wage is determined by the finance of the club, his age, his importance to the team and his form when signing a new deal or for a new club.

Chelsea are also one of the most paying clubs in the division. In the Chelsea squad are outstanding players who are on a good pay cheque. On that note, let us take a look at the 10 most paid Chelsea players in the 2021/2022 season.

10. Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Chelsea academy graduate Callum Hudson-Odoi begins this list from the 10th spot. The youngster who has been making steady progress of recent earns £120,000 per week at Chelsea.

9. Christian Pulisic.

Cristian Pulisic is one of many players in the Chelsea team at the moment who earn the same amount of money. The former Borussia Dortmund star earns a weekly wage of £150,000 this season.

8. Mateo Kovacic.

Mateo Kovacic, like Pulisic, earns £150,000 a week wage at Chelsea. The former Real Madrid midfielder is earning the same as the American international.

7. Kai Havertz.

Former Bayer Leverkusen starlet Kai Havertz is next on the list. Upon sealing a 70 million pounds deal to Chelsea, he signed a deal worth £150,000 a week wage at Stamford Bridge. This means that he also earns the same as Cristian Pulisic and Mateo Kovacic.

6. César Azpilicueta.

César Azpilicueta is another Chelsea player who earns one of the highest wages at Chelsea. The Spanish international pockets a sum of £150,000 on a weekly basis at Chelsea. Again, he joins players such as Pulisic, Kovacic and Havertz as players who earn the same amount of money.

5. Kepa Arrizabalaga.

With a sum of £155,000 as weekly wage, Kepa Arrizabalaga is the fifth most paid player at Chelsea. The Spanish goalkeeper is also the most expensive goalkeeper in world football.

4. Ben Chilwell.

Ben Chilwell may just be finding his feet at Chelsea, buy his £190,000 a week wage is the 4th highest of any Chelsea player. The English left back joined from Leicester City under Frank Lampard last season.

3. Timo Werner.

Another signing made under Frank Lampard. Timo Werner was the second-highest earner at Chelsea until the start of this season. The German international is currently on a £272,000 a week wage at Chelsea.

2. N'Golo Kante.

On his day, N'Golo Kanté is the best Premier League defensive midfield player. The French international is such an important member in the Chelsea squad at the moment. As such, his wage proves that. Kanté goes home with a whooping £290,000 as wage every week.

1. Romelu Lukaku.

Romelu Lukaku, who is a Belgian international, is the most paid player at Chelsea now. The former Inter Milan and Manchester United striker earns £325,000 every week. While this is the highest being earned by a Chelsea player, it is less than what some other players in the league earns.

For example, there are about 4 Manchester United players who earn over 300k. Ronaldo earns 480 as the most paid player in the Premier League.

Chelsea have a pretty healthy pay roaster. I think the board have done well in ensuring they don't pay outrageous wages like Manchester United do. Note that Saul didn't feature as he is on loan from Atlético de Madrid.
