Dominik Szoboszlai’s ridiculous running stats – 3rd fastest in Premier League!

Szoboszlai has gone viral in the wake of Saturdays 3-1 win over Wolves, due to his lung-busting run to catch up with and overtake Pedro Neto on the break.

That clip led to sensational claims on social media that the Hungarian had logged the second-fastest speed in the history of the Premier League.

It was suggested that Szoboszlai was behind only Kyle Walker, whose speed of 37.31km/h was said to be the only sprint clocked higher than his 36.76km/h at Molineux.

Speed statistics are not readily available and do not reliably date back to the Premier Leagues inception in 1992, making it difficult to compare.

But Szoboszlais statistics are certainly up there, with the Mails Lewis Steele bringing figures from Opta.

According to Opta, Szoboszlais sprint speed of 36.76km/h is third behind only Walker (37.31km/h) and Lutons Chiedozie Ogbene (36.93km/h) since the start of 2020/21.

? Since 2020-21 Premier League season, only two players have recorded a quicker top sprint speed than Dom Szoboszlai against Wolves on Saturday (36.76km/h) (from Opta)

????Szoboszlai has ran a total 57.7km this season, at least 7km more than any other #LFC player ?
