Top 20 fastest Premier League players - Leicester dominate, Tottenham and West Ham men feature twice

Premier League

The flying Foxes take the crown as the league's quickest team.

New analysis by tech company TRACAB has revealed the fastest players in the Premier League so far this season, as reported by Sky Sports.

The company uses ‘advanced image-processing technology to determine the position of all moving objects in the field of play at a rapid 25 times per second’ allowing it to determine which players have clocked up the highest speeds this season.

Leicester City’s explosive start to the season has been characterised by their speedy counter attacks, and it’s no surprise to see they dominate the top 20 list.

Jamie Vardy takes top spot with a speed of 35.44 km p/h, closely followed by teammates Jeffrey Schlupp and Mark Albrighton, who managed 35.26 km and 35.00 km p/h respectively. Captain Wes Morgan comes in at 8th place with a speed of 34.76km p/h.

West Ham United’s Carl Jenkinson recorded the sixth and seventh highest speeds, with 34.80 and 34.80 respectively.

Tottenham Hotspur speed merchant Kyle Walker was another to appear twice on the list after he managed speeds of 34.63 and 34.60, taking the 13th and 14th positions respectively.

Meanwhile, Stoke City's Mame Biram Diouf appears twice with speeds of 34.97 km and 34.71 km p/h, and Crystal Palace men Wilfried Zaha and Yannick Bolasie round out the list at 34.39 km and 34.33 km p/h.
