Liverpool winger has been ranked as the 18th fastest player in the while Manchester City’s gem Leroy Sane topped the standings, according to a statistic.

Salah is the current Premier League top scorer with 30 goals this season, four ahead of his closest rival for the golden boot award Harry Kane. He has a total of 40 goals in all competitions this term.

The 25-year-old wideman’s pace is one of his most prominent attributes which distinguishes him from several wingers in Europe’s top five leagues and always tend to give him an advantage over defenders.

Surprisingly enough, Salah wasn’t included in the top 10 fastest players in the league according to information gathered by data-based websited Opta, which have recorded every player’s top speed in the league this season.

Sane came in the first place, followed by Crystal Palace’s Patrick Van Aanholt and Tottenham’s Moussa Sissoko. The top 10 also included the likes of Theo Walcott and Kyle Walker. Meanwhile, Senegal international and Salah teammate Sadio Mane came 19th, right behind the former Roma man.

    I would like more transpereancy with these metrics. Is this him running with the ball or with out the ball. Is this a measurement of the fastest speed recorded only during in games or was this at free will? Definitely will affect FIFA stats when the game comes out and Egypt just started to become pretty decent in the game.

    Probably the fastest professional player in the world running with the ball at his foot.
