Pace is essential. There’s no substitute for speed in modern-day football.

While defenders might use it for a last-minute recovery tackle on an opponent, forwards use it during counter-attacks to push the opposition onto the back foot.


In the ever-so competitive Premier League too, the importance of natural speed and that burst of pace is second to none. No wonder managers and clubs are always on the look out for pacy wingers and wing-backs.

So who do you think makes it into the top 10 list of fastest players in the Premier League? Opta has helped us find out.

And while there are a few expected names in the list, there are a few surprises as well!
