Mykhailo Mudryk of Chelsea is the fastest player in the English Premier League this season. Chelsea signed the 22-year-old winger in January and he made his debut against Liverpool at Anfield.
Premier League: Chelsea newly signing player, Mykhailo Mudryk only 35 minutes, but he had an impact on the game. He was a nuisance for the Liverpool defense, and he was unplayable whenever he had the ball on his feet.
The Ukrainian wreaked havoc on Liverpool’s defense during his 35-minute cameo over the weekend. He was extremely sharp, and his interplay with others was fantastic. Mudryk set the highest speed record in the Premier League this season with a top speed of 36.63 km/h.
His prey was Liverpool’s veteran defender, who attempted to cover him but was outmatched by his speed and dribbling abilities. Jurgen Klopp, sensing danger, substituted Alexander Arnold for Chelsea’s winger.
Mudryk is expected to make his full Chelsea debut against Fulham at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Mudryk is expected to start on the left wing, where he hopes to score his first goal for Chelsea.
