The fastest player in the Premier League this season is a Newcastle player…

Newcastle United is not usually associated with being at the top of many lists (other than perhaps being the most frustrating team to support), but a recent list has been compiled of the fastest players in the Premier League so far this season and it features two Newcastle players, including the fastest of the lot.

The list was created by recording the highest speeds recorded by players in games so far in the 2014/15 Premier League season. Football has been getting quicker and quicker, so it is no mean feat to make it on this list.
Here are the results (there are some very noticeable absentees such as Theo Walcott, Angel Di Mario and Sergio Aguero who are all players you associate with having immense pace):

20. Ashley Williams (Swansea) – 20.98mph

19. Joel Ward (Crystal Palace) – 21.03mph

18. Eden Hazard (Chelsea) – 21.05mph

17. Branislav Ivanovic (Chelsea) – 21.05mph

16. Neil Taylor (Swansea) – 21.06mph

15. Phil Jagielka (Everton) – 21.07mph

14. Danny Ings (Burnley) – 21.11mph

13. Jason Shackell (Burnley) – 21.18mph

12. Ryan Bertrand (Southampton) – 21.18mph

11. Christian Eriksen (Tottenham) – 21.19mph

10. Jake Livermore (Hull) – 21.19mph

Jack Colback

Yes, the Ginger Pirlo has made it on the list


9. Jack Colback (Newcastle) – 21.20mph

8. Steven Caulker (QPR) – 21.27mph

7. Jordan Henderson (Liverpool) – 21.30mph



6. Nathaniel Clyne (Southampton) – 21.41mph

5. Wayne Rooney (Man Utd) – 21.42mph

4. Ahmed Elmohamady (Hull) – 21.62mph

3. Raheem Sterling (Liverpool) – 21.78mph

2. Stewart Downing (West Ham) – 21.79mph

Moussa Sissoko

The fastest Premier League player this season


1. Moussa Sissoko (Newcastle) – 22.00mph

Well there you have it. He may not be in many people’s good books at the moment after getting sent off against Liverpool but Moussa Sissoko is the fastest Premier League player so far this season – you can’t argue with statistics.
