The Fastest Player At Each Premier League Club

The Premier League is renowned for its high-tempo, intense action thanks to having some of the fastest footballers in the world among the 20 clubs’ playing squads.

The bare minimum running speed set by the demands of the modern game has increased dramatically throughout the 21st century, especially in the English top-flight. Every position on the pitch, perhaps excluding the goalkeeper to some extent, requires having a decent turn of pace in order to keep up with the rapid, expansive style of the Premier League.

Thierry Henry, Cristiano Ronaldo and Fernando Torres excelled above their peers in the English game at one time or another during their careers, and despite being vastly different types of players, they all share a common trait: elite speed. Although these men have proven the ability to outrun opposition markers has become an increasingly crucial attribute of the best players in the business, raw pace alone is far from the be-all and end-all of succeeding as a top-level player.

However, it certainly helps one’s cause, and it’s no coincidence many of the inclusions in this list are also the among the key figures in their respective teams. These are the fastest players at each club in the Premier League.

The West Ham United faithful are growing tired of watching summer capture Michail Antonio warm the bench amid the Hammers’ dire form of late. The English winger is capable of changing games in the attacking third with his astonishing speed, but he’s yet to be given the chances his qualities deserve at Upton Park. Antonio notched a respectable goal return during spells at Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest before arriving in East London and many believe a player with his eye for goal and raw athleticism can be molded into an impactful player.
