Statistics gurus Opta have been recording the fastest speed of players in the Premier League this season and though a fair of household names are in the mix, the top 20 does throw up some surprises.
PFA Young Player of the Year nominee Leroy Sane has destroyed defenders with his pace and trickery all season and it comes as no surprise that he is the league's speed king.
In fact, with his top speed of 35.48km/h (22.05 mph) - recorded in the 1-0 victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge back in September, the German is actually the fastest player in the Premier League since the collection of such data began in 2013/14.

Crystal Palace left-back Patrick van Aanholt is second, having clocked 35.42km/h - while Moussa Sissoko is third with 35.33km/h.
Theo Walcott has been one of the fastest players in the league ever since he burst onto the scene but has had to settle for fourth place on 35.23km/h - not too far ahead of compatriot Kyle Walker (35.2km/h) in fifth.
Walker is one of five defenders to feature in the list, with Antonio Rudiger, Kiko Femenia and Laurent Koscielny and Kurt Zouma all in.
Jamie Vardy, once the league's fastest player, is in 11th while Arsenal's pacey pair Hector Bellerin and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - the latter the fastest player on FIFA 18, are level in 13th place.
Unquestionably the biggest surprise is that Liverpool sensation Mo Salah, scorer of 30 Premier Leagues goals in a sensational campaign, is only in 18th- with his top speed at 34.93km/h.
