Mykhailo Mudryk breaks Premier League season speed record after only 35 minutes against Liverpool

Mykhailo Mudryk set the record as the fastest player in the Premier League season during a mere 35-minute cameo on his debut for Chelsea.

Having cost £88.5million, much is expected of the Ukrainian winger yet his appearance at Liverpool on the weekend was his first piece of competitive action since November due to the winter and World Cup breaks at former club Shakhtar Donetsk.

That made it all the more impressive that he clocked a 36.63km/h top speed at Anfield.

According to Opta, that breaks the previous best for the campaign set by Everton’s Anthony Gordon (36.61km/h).

Darwin Nunez and Erling Haaland are also in the top five with 36.53 and 36.22km/h, respectively.

A second Chelsea player is a somewhat surprise addition to the league’s most-rapid players. Denis Zakaria comes in fifth with a 36.09 km/h top speed, the loanee midfielder having only played four games in the Premier League.

Mudryk, 22, has been tipped to excel at Stamford Bridge after his impressive first appearance.
