From the Champions league qualification battle which was won by Manchester United and Chelsea, to the relegation battle, which saw Aston Villa survive with Watford and Bournemouth joining Norwich in the Championship.
One aspect of the game fans love to see is the good old fashioned display of pace. Some players are renowned for different things: passing, dribbling, tackling abilities, and speed. Players like Adama Traore, Daniel James an Sadio Mane are known for being fast, but were they the fastest out there this season?
With the season concluded, the stats have been collated and analysed, and the top ten fastest sprints in the League this season have been recorded. There's a huge surprise: Adama Traore is NOT top of the list.

Remember when he astonishingly raced and cleared Pulisic's goal bound short off the like, after the American had rounded keeper Ederson.
So there's the list. A bit surprising, no Daniel James, Christian Pulisic, Sadio Mane or Mohammed Salah.
