Walcott #1, yet Arsenal also released one of FIFA's top 20 fastest players this summer

Two players with Arsenal connections feature in FIFA's top 20 fastest players.

EA Sports have released a list of the top 20 fastest players in the upcoming FIFA 16 video game.

At number one is Arsenal speedster Theo Walcott, whose blistering pace has been a feature of his performances ever since bursting onto the scene has a teenager almost a decade ago.

His selection as first may be open to debate, but even more notable is a place in the top 20 for a player Arsenal released this summer.

Japanese prospect Ryo Miyaichi figures at number 13, ahead of Chelsea flop Juan Cuadrado and PSG superstar Lucas Moura.

Miyaichi was once rated as one of Arsenal's brightest prospects, especially after an impressive spell on loan at Feyenoord.

Yet that was back in 2010/11, and the attacking midfielder has achieved little of note since, with loan spells at Bolton, Wigan and Twente.

Miyaichi was held back by injuries, while during performances for Arsenal's under-21 side he failed to shine while the likes of Alex Iwobi and Serge Gnabry stepped up.

His contract was not renewed this summer, and he signed with Gerrman second division side St Pauli. Still only 22, he was able to pen a contract until 2018.

He does not stand to play any time soon though, suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury in July. The Japan Times reported he underwent surgery and is not expected to play again until 2016.
