Mykhailo Mudryk has already broken a Premier League record for this season after he clocking in a top speed of 22.76mph on his Chelsea debut against Liverpool at the weekend.
Chelsea’s new £88million signing dazzled fans with his neat footwork and sublime dribbling at Anfield in the goalless draw and now already has a record to his name after just one game in England’s top-flight.
According to Opta, Mudryk has narrowly overtaken Everton player Anthony Gordon in breaking the season’s top speed record, which was set back in November.
Performance coach Dima Chapovskyi shared the videos on Instagram, saying: “37.00. It’s not temperature. It’s Mudryk speed against Liverpool.”
Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez briefly held the top speed record for this season back in October, when he clocked in a speed of 22.68mph against West Ham.
However, Gordon went on to pip his Merseyside rival a month later, going that little bit faster in Everton’s 3-0 win over Crystal Palace at Goodison Park.
Man City’s goal machine Erling Haaland has recorded a top speed of 22.50mph while Mudryk’s Chelsea team-mate Denis Zakaria completes the top five fastest players this season.
Mudryk earned comparisons to Blues icons Eden Hazard and Arjen Robben following his impressive cameo at Anfield.
