Despite efforts to invest in their squad in recent seasons, as shown by the top five earners at the club according to Capology, West Ham United remain one of the Premier League’s underachievers.
A poor start to the season saw former boss Manuel Pellegrini sacked and while results have seen a slight improvement under new manager David Moyes, they remain level on points with 18th-placed Bournemouth.
A 3-1 win over Southampton prior to the suspension of football proved important, but with the side taking just four points from their last six matches in total, they will need to play better when football returns.
The delay to the season and the uncertainty it creates will be a blow though, and with it still unknown how the season will be concluded, maintaining fitness and focus should prove a big challenge.
The Hammers do have some tough fixtures remaining against Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Chelsea, so when the season restarts they will have plenty of work to do.
With the return of football still a few weeks to away though, we look at their five top earners.
