Mohamed Salah Is Just Liverpool's 6th Fastest Player This Season
Mohamed Salah is just Liverpool's sixth fastest player this season.
'The Egyptian King' is renown for his blistering pace, getting in behind defenders in a blink of an eye.
But Salah is not Liverpool's fastest player so far this campaign.
In fact, he's tied in sixth place alongside Roberto Firmino.
Who is Liverpool's fastest player this campaign?
None other than Joe Gomez.
He recorded a top sprinting speed of 21.6 mph during Liverpool's victory at Leicester City.
In second place, Gomez's defensive partner, Virgil van Dijk who clocked a top speed of 21.5 mph.
Then it's Sadio Mane with a top speed of 21.4 mph.
Liverpool's attacking full-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson produced a top speed of 21.1 mph and 21 mph, respectively.
Salah and Firmino both clocked a top speed of 20.9 mph.
What's more, only one defender has recorded a faster speed than Gomez this season. Huddersfield Town's Terence Kongolo posted a top speed of 21.66 mph.
Impressive from the pair of defenders. In particular Gomez who is excelling under Jurgen Klopp and forging a brilliant partnership with van Dijk.
The 21-year-old was rewarded for his early form with a call-up to the England team, making his senior debut against Germany.
Is Gomez a future England star?
