Speed and acceleration are very important attributes in modern football. Teams like Madrid and Borussia Dortmund tear down their opponents with their immense speed.
Let’s see who are the top three fastest players from London in the premier league,
3. Ryo Miyaichi – Arsenal
The Japnese winger joined Arsenal in 2011 and was tipped as the next big thing at Emirates, Even though he failed to live up to the expectations, Miyaichi is still one of the fastest players in the premier league.
According to Telegraph, the wonderkid from Japan clocked 10.6 seconds over 100 metres which is astonishing indeed.
2. Aaron Lennon – Tottenham
Aaron Lennon may not be faster than Ryo in straight runs, but the Tottenham man is much faster in shorter runs. Even though we didnt get his proper 100m clock time, we believe Lennon deserves his second spot. His gameplay is predictable sometimes, but at his prime, he can give nightmares to defenders with his speed and quick turning skills.
1. Theo Walcott – Arsenal
Who else can it be? Arsenal speedster Theo Walcott is still the speed king of London. England international just now recovered fully from a stomach injury and is ready now to speed up Arsenal’s title chase.
Theo is also more versatile than Lennon and Ryo. He has good finishing skills which enables him to play in more central role. He can finish, he can run at defenders and not many defenders in the league can catch him. According to Fantix, Walcott has been clocked at 10.4 for the 100 meters. Amazing!
