Who is the fastest player in the Premier League?

Tottenham Hotspur's Micky Van de Ven leads the standings this season in a list compiled by Sky Sports. The defender reached a top speed of 37.38 km/h, which he made during their weekend draw against Everton.

The Dutch defender, who only moved to North London this season from Wolfsburg, has settled in well under Ange Postecoglou. He has formed an impressive partnership with World Cup winner Christian Romero. The 22-year-old suffered a hamstring injury at the start of November and only returned towards the end of the year.

In second place is Luton Town's Chiedozie Ogbene, who recorded 36.93km/h. The Ireland international has been a regular for Rob Edwards this season in their maiden appearance in the top flight.

Pedro Neto is third on the list, with the pacy Wolves winger recording a 36.86km/h speed. Only Aston Villa's Ollie Watkins and Newcastle United's Kieran Trippier have supplied more assists than the Portuguese forward this season. Liverpool's Dominik Szoboszlai is fourth, with a speed of 36.76km/h.

Phil Foden helps set unique record

Sports Brief has also reported that Phil Foden set a unique record in Manchester City's win over Brentford on February 5.

Foden scored a hat-trick to help Pep Guardiola's side come from behind to win 3-1 at the G-tech Stadium. The result takes the defending champion to within two points of league leaders, Liverpool, with a game in hand.
