Cape Town - Manchester United have risen to the top of the English Premiership table based on the wages paid to players.

Manchester United pay their players a total of £215.8 million in salaries in 2013-14, according to the Telegraph.

All Premier League clubs are required to submit annual accounts to the Companies House.

Manchester City "dropped" from first to second place, having reduced their 2012-13 wage bill from £233.1 million to £205 million in 2013-14.

Lowest on the wage table, Burnley's salary spending was just £21.5 million - one tenth of the top ranked Manchester United.

Southampton have the best points to wages ratio, they are 16th in wages spending but 7th on the actual log. QPR are the worst as they are the 8th highest salary payers but 19th on the EPL table.

The Telegraph says that "Apart from those clubs who were promoted from the Championship last season, only Manchester City, Aston Villa and Sunderland ended the 2013/14 season having made a financial loss".
