Victor Moses ranked eighth fastest Premier League player

Super Eagles forward, Victor Moses, has been ranked eighth quickest player for the 2015/16 Premier League season according to The Sun.

The list is a compilation of top speed reached by each player in every single game in the league.

Moses, 25, spent last season on loan at West Ham from Chelsea and managed only 13 starts in the league with just one goal.

However, despite his not too impressive stint at Upton Park, the former Crystal Palace winger was still considered among the most pacy players in English top flight.

With an incredible speed of 21.7mph, travelling at 35km/h, the Nigerian is considered faster than the likes of Theo Walcott, Raheem Sterling, Eden Hazard and Willian.

Manchester United teenager, Anthony Martial and Leicester’s Jamie Vardy are tied on top of the list with speed of 22mph.

Vardy’s teammate, Jeffrey Schlupp, is third while Liverpool’s Divock Origi and Tottenham defender, Kyle Walker completes the top five.
