The Premier League has revealed the fastest players in the Premier League, with a Manchester City star coming out on top.

Germany international left winger Leroy Sane tops the list with a top speed of 35.48 kilometres per hour, meaning he can outstrip any defender in the league.

The 22-year-old, signed from Schalke in 2016 for £37 million, has been in remarkably productive form this term, scoring 12 goals in all competitions and providing 15 assists in all competitions, with Pep Guardiola’s men poised to win the Premier League and still in the Champions League, where they will face Liverpool in the quarter-finals.

Fellow City star Kyle Walker also makes the list, after burning up the right flank with the champions-elect, along with a number of surprising inclusions.

A total of five defenders make the top 10, along with just one striker.
