Top ten fastest Premier League attackers, midfielders and defenders disclosed

Mirror Football has revealed the names of the top 10 swiftest defenders, midfielders, and forwards in the Premier League.

The list is headed by Kieran Tierney, Mykhaylo Mudryk, and Brennan Johnson. With just 10 games left in the season, players have a limited time to try and surpass the current speedsters in the league. 

While the defenders’ timings are slower compared to the midfielders and forwards, the top 10 in each category are still considered to be exceptionally fast. The data used for this list was provided by Squawka.


Kieran Tierney, who plays for Arsenal, leads the group of defenders in terms of speed with a velocity of 35.00km/h. Diogo Dalot, a right-back for Manchester United, follows closely behind with a speed of 35.76km/h.

 Jack Stacey, from Bournemouth, comes in third place with a speed of 36.64km/h. Kristoffer Ajer, from Brentford, takes the fourth spot with a speed of 35.53km/h, and Adam Smith from Bournemouth joins his teammate Stacey in the top five with a speed of 35.52km/h. 

Antonee Robinson from Fulham is next on the list with a speed of 35.34km/h, while Kyle Walker, surprisingly, has a lower ranking with a speed of 35.01km/h.
