Eric Dier has been named as Tottenham Hotspur’s fastest player so far this season.
Tottenham Hotspur’s fastest player of the season so far has been revealed as new signing Eric Dier.
The summer addition from Sporting Lisbon has reached the highest sprint speed of any Spurs player this season to date.
Dier’s top speed reached 35.0 kilometres per hour, faster than Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez (34.6), according to results released by The Mail.
He narrowly misses out on being the quickest in the Premier League, a boast held by Newcastle United’s Moussa Sissoko on 35.3 k/ph.
Spurs winger Aaron Lennon is arguably the player in the squad best known for his pace, but one of Dier’s rival at right-back as the potential to usurp him.
New addition DeAndre Yedlin has become an internet sensation after a video of his pace playing for Seattle Sounders in MLS went viral.
