Who is the Premier League's quickest player? You may be surprised

No Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United or Tottenham Hotspur stars feature but an Everton player tops the list.

EA Sports tracking data has shown that Everton defender Phil Jagielka has recorded the fastest sprint in the Premier League so far this season.

The experienced defender clocked an impressive speed of 35.99 km per hour, which beats the likes of Alexis Sanchez of Arsenal and Raheem Sterling of Liverpool based on the data supplied to the Daily Mail.

Second on the list is former Manchester United star Ritchie de Laet who clocked 35.94 km per hour for Leicester City with Joe Ledley of Crystal Palace third with a speed of 35.91 km per hour.

The lost produced by EA shows no players from Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester city or Tottenham Hotspur in the top ten which is immensely surprising.

EA’s data will be questioned by fans who can’t believe that Jagielka is the quickest sprinter in the Premier League so far, but the Mail’s report claims that EA track every second of every player who features in any Premier League game.
