One Arsenal star features in the top ten fastest players in the Premier League

Arsenal has some of the fastest players in the Premier League, the likes of Hector Bellerin and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have proven to be speed demons in Mikel Arteta’s team.

However, none of them features as the top ten fastest players in the Premier League this season, but one Arsenal player that might surprise you does feature.

The Premier League has some of the fastest players in the world, with the likes of Raheem Sterling and Adama Traore proving to be too quick to handle for opposing players.

After the end of the season, Mirror Sports compiled a list of the fastest players in the Premier League this season.

Some names on the list will surprise you, with the likes of Phil Foden and Manchester United’s Fred featuring.

While most of us believe that Traore is the fastest player in the English top-flight, he was beaten to the top spot by Manchester City’s Kyle Walker.

Arsenal’s Ainsley Maitland-Niles appears on the list as the seventh-fastest player in the league this season.

The versatile player clocked 23.27mph this season to beat the likes of Aubameyang and Bellerin.

I have to admit I was a little surprised, I would have actually gone for Kieran Tierney as our fastest player.

    Would be great to see him given a long run in the centre of midfield ,shame he’s so versatile because he hasn’t been able to lock down one position,and every time he’s been given the chance in the middle he hasn’t let us down ,probably see him leave soon if a offer comes our way which is a shame unless MA has different ideas ,and when you see players like Jack Grealish being talked about as a 80 million pound player you just know we will prob sell for around 20 million,and IMO he would be more of a threat than Jack If given time .
    Seems like a player who when called on gives 100% , I fell like there is a really really good player in there somewhere let’s hope we get to see rather than another team .

      Dan kit, I agree with you.
      The rallypositive thing is that AMN was one of the first players to witness MA’s style of management, when he was publically called out for his attitude.
      He knuckled down, got back in to the squad and now seems part of Mikel’s plans.
      Let’s hope that’s the kick up the backside he needed?

        Hope so Ken ,there is a really good player hiding in there somewhere , let’s hope it comes out with him playing for us .
        3-1 to us Saturday Ken is my prediction 👍
        Off fishing again so will be pretty pissed before it even kicks off 😂

          And don’t judge ,I know it’s a 5 pm kickoff ,but to get away from the other half once in a blue moon (or twice in 2 weeks in my case )you got to let of some steam.
          Probably feel it on Sunday when I’ve drunk my own body weight in Herefordshire finest cider 😂

            I predict 2-0 from behind the sofa and walking up and down the passage for the whole game 😷✌️

    Give him a run at rb. Not sure we signed Cedric. His ceiling is way lower than AMNs. We’ve been waiting for hector to regain his form for long enough. His skill and pace would give us a Liverpool type threat along with tierney. I think he would get sharper defensively if given time and confidence. He’s not good enough as a CM

      Topgun86 – ‘He’s not good enough as a CM.’
      When did Arteta let him play as a CM?
      Which game/games are you referring to?
      Arteta had the perfect opportunity to play AMN as a CM in the last game – and who did he choose instead?
      One of his favourites of course: Joe Willock.
      Must be very galling for AMN to see a sub standard player like Willock be given so many chances while he’s always stuck somewhere he dislikes – LB, RB usually.
      AMN has said many times he wants to play in the middle.
      Arteta, like you, seems totally incapable of comprehending this.
      Wish people would stop saying how wonderful Arteta is when he clearly thinks that Willock is better than AMN. The mind boggles!
      Isn’t a manager supposed to know his player’s strengths – and then play to those strengths? Not stick them in positions in which they are not very good and don’t want to play anyway?
      It’s only AMN’s speed which makes him look good as a defender sometimes – just think what that speed would do if used correctly
      AMN is NOT a good full back. Wing back maybe.
      CM definitely – ask Paul Pogba.
