Goals, saves, last minute thrills, and superlative quality are a few things that make the Premier League so exciting to watch.
However, another aspect that keeps the audiences glued to the matches without blinking is the presence of speedy runners that go from one end of the field to another in a matter of seconds. These players thrive on taking on the opposition and setting the grass on fire with their unmatched pace and agility.
With three games played so far this season, the world has got a fair glimpse of who will literally be running the show for the rest of the campaign. As per Opta (via the Mirror), here is a list of the top 10 fastest players in the Premier League for the month of August:
10. Salomon Rondon (West Brom) – 34.56 km per hour
=10. Romelu Lukaku (Man United) – 34.56 km per hour
=10. N’Golo Kante (Chelsea) – 34.56 km per hour
9.Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton) – 34.62 km per hour
8. Jamie Vardy (Leicester) – 34.65 km per hour
7. Paul Pogba (Man United) – 34.68 km per hour
6. Joshua King (Bournemouth) – 34.70 km per hour
5. Ryan Fraser (Bournemouth) – 34.79 km per hour
4. Sadio Mane (Liverpool) – 34.84 km per hour
3. Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal) – 35.11 km per hour
2.Kiko Femenia (Watford) – 35.12 km per hour
1. Kyle Walker (Man City) – 35.16 km per hour
While the number 1 position is well and truly justified, the presence of names like Koscielny, Pogba, and Rondon might take a few by surprise. However, the absence of some quick players like Mohamed Salah, Hector Bellerin and Raheem Sterling will also raise a few eyebrows.
The fact that 35 games are still left to be played in the League this season will be enough reason for the list to undergo some major alterations, and end up the way expected by one and all.
