Liverpool v Manchester United: Which players earn the most money ahead of Anfield showdown

The Premier League giants meet at Anfield on Sunday, but the runaway leaders still have some catching up to do in the wages department

Liverpool might be leading Manchester United by an incredible 27 points in the Premier league, but they are not top of the pile when it comes to salaries.

As they prepare for Sunday's showdown at Anfield and despite the European Champions seemingly unstoppable march to their first top-flight title since 1990, the clubs are in different leagues when it comes to the top earners.

Mohamed Salah, unsurprisingly, earns the highest wages at Liverpool. The Egyptian superstar, 27, has a weekly take home pay of £200,000 (Dh964,000), according to Spotrac, an online sports team and player contract website, or £10.4 million a year.

But that figure is topped by three Manchester United players, and matched by another, despite the fact the Old Trafford giants last won a league title in 2013.

Above is a photo gallery of the highest earning 11 players from Liverpool and Manchester United and their weekly take home pay. It might some extra bite to the action at Anfield.
