The Quickest Players In The Premier League This Season Have Been Revealed
There's nothing more dangerous on a football pitch than speed, well maybe a pissed off Dele Alli trying to make a challenge on an opposition player, but who are top 10 speediest speedsters in the Premier League so far this season.
Tis the season to be merry but seeing as it's nearly the end of the calendar year and half way way through the Premier League it's also the time of year that we love to take stock of what's gone before.
Looking back on 2017 as a calendar year the people at the Ballon d'Or and FIFA's 'The Best' decided that Cristiano Ronaldo was the best player of 2017 but as far as the season goes it's looking like some of the top leagues in Europe have all but been decided.
Manchester City lead the Premier League by 11 points and right now don't seem capable of throwing that kind of lead away as Pep Guardiola chases his first title in England.
Whilst City boss the league one of their own also tops the list of the quickest players in the Premier League so far this season. Opta stats, via Dream Team FC, have put together a list of quickest sprinting speeds:
10: Jamie Vardy - Leicester (35.09 km/h)
9: Laurent Koscielny - Arsenal (35.11 km/h)
8: Kiko Femenia - Watford (35.12 km/h)
7: Oliver Burke - West Brom (35.13 km/h)
6: Wilfried Zaha - Crystal Palace (35.14 km/h)
5: Antonio Rudiger - Chelsea (35.19 km/h)
4: Kyle Walker - Manchester City (35.21 km/h)

2: Patrick van Aanholt - Crystal Palace (35.42 km/h)
1: Leroy Sane - Manchester City (35.48 km/h)

It probably won't come as a surprise to anyone to see Leroy Sane come top of the list but Moussa Sissoko in third?! All this time I thought he just didn't bother doing much in a game, apparently he just moves so quick it seems that way- fair play.
