Putting memories of his underwhelming 2 years to chelse behind him. You can notice his physical changes as his career progress. Muhammad Salah’s top speed is 35 KM/H.
- Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has made a name for himself with some of the top clubs in Europe with his exceptional speed which he consistently uses to pass through defenders.

- Erling Haaland
Pass alone doesn’t make a player great but Erling Haaland has so much of it, it is almost unfair, and is sadly no one-trick player. It is his physicality, his instinct, and the terror he inspires in defenders. At the age of 20 years old he set a Bundesliga speed record during his Dortmund side’s 3-2 victory. And he comes into this list with a top speed of 36.04 KM/H.
- Kylian Mbappe
Three consecutive domestic goal-scoring awards a world cup title and yes he runs like a cheater. Kylian Mbappe is just 23 years old it is just clear that you dealing with a truly generational talent.

- Alphonso Davies
Look up the word pace on google then you would probably see a picture of this trailblazing Bayern Munich superstar starring right back at you.
