Four out of the top seven fastest players are new arrivals in the Premier League, while the third quickest star Pedro Neto was injured for long spells last season.

Walker had registered the fastest speed since 2020-21 after hitting 37.31 km/h.

But that has now been topped by Tottenham centre-back Micky van de Ven.

That means the Dutchman has recorded the fastest speed this season – just pipping Luton star Chiedozie Ogbene to top spot, with the Hatters winger managing 36.93 km/h.

Two more Prem newcomers round off the top five in Liverpool’s Dominik Szoboszlai and Burnley’s Dara O’Shea.

They have reached speeds of 36.76 km/h and 36.73 km/h respectively – a fraction quicker than Newcastle speedster Anthony Gordon.

Everton midfielder Amadou Onana rounds off the top seven which means there is no place for Walker.

Fans were surprised to see miss out but were not shocked to see Van de Ven top the list.

One fan reacted saying: “Van de Ven is the quickest I’ve ever seen play for Spurs – and I watched Kyle Walker for seven years. Just pray for those hammies.”

Van de Ven has impressed since joining Spurs in the summer and he was badly missed after suffering a hamstring tear in the 4-1 defeat to Chelsea in November.
