The trio of Willian, Pedro and Eden Hazard are known for their blistering pace but surprisingly, they are not the fastest for Chelsea this season.
What’s even more surprising is that the fastest Chelsea player this season in the Premier League is actually a defender. I was also shocked as you too when I saw the stat.
According to Opta, Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger is the fastest Chelsea player this season. I know Rudiger is fast but I was shocked to find out he was the fastest Chelsea player this season.
The Chelsea centre-back has clocked a speed of 35.19km/h this season, which is the fourth fastest in the Premier League this season.
The fastest player in the Premier League this season is Manchester City’s Leroy Sane. He clocked a speed of 35.48km/h during City’s victory over Chelsea in September. It is also the quickest in the Premier League since records began during the 2013-14 season.
