There are some rapid players in the premier league but who is the quickest as of now (2014)? And how fast are they?

I think Theo Walcott's got the record on 100m sprint: – 719016 Apr 5 '14 at 3:27
10.6 seconds for 100m...that is quick! – Kristian Bright Apr 5 '14 at 6:17
@20050... Should that not be put down as an official answer seen as you have a source? – RoB Apr 18 '14 at 11:42
Try to search about mo salah. I think he's fast – user3603 Apr 26 '14 at 1:39

It's very hard to pick the quickest player in the EPL, it also depends if you measure the run without the ball or with the ball.

To sum up the answer, Theo Walcott is probably the fastest one but it's inconclusive.

Measurements are being done all the time by several organizations,
In the last measurement done by FIFA who choose Antonio Valencia as fastest player on the planet, the following EPL players which appears on the list are:

1) Antonio Valencia (35.1 KM/H)

3) Aaron Lennon (33.8 KM/H)

5) Theo Walcott (32.7 KM/H)

7) Wayne Rooney (31.2 KM/H)

List of Fastest player by FIFA

The accuracy of these numbers can probably be disputed, since all FIFA has stated is that the data was pulled off from their own computers and tracking systems.

Another source is Goal.Com, Goal’s 5 quickest players in the Premier League are: 1. Theo Walcott (22.72 miles per hour) 2. Kyle Walker 3. Jesus Navas 4. Gabby Agbonlahor 5. Aaron Lennon

According to Theo Walcott is the fastest one.

And you asking Kyle Walker (Tottenham) so he will present this as a prove that he is the fastest (

Kyle Walker

I would seriously question any stat that has Rooney as the seventh fastest player – queeg Aug 26 '14 at 7:58

The last picture link seems to be dead. (IIRC I have read on some meta site that posting pictures using imgur - with the links generated using SE editor - should prevent link rot.) – Martin Mar 16 '15 at 12:24
Thanks @Martin, I fixed the link – Dor Cohen Mar 16 '15 at 12:28
