But Salah is not Liverpool's fastest player so far this campaign.

In fact, he's tied in sixth place alongside Roberto Firmino.

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?
