The makers of FIFA 2016 have rated Theo Walcott as the fastest player in the Premier League - but the quickest man in England's top flight so far this season is in fact Leicester's Jamie Vardy.
The pacey England international clocked 35.44km/hr in his side's 2-1 win at West Ham.
Claudio Ranieri's men have got off to a fast start in the Premier League and their players have registered four of the five top speeds seen in the division in 2015/16 so far.
Jeffrey Schlupp (35.26km/hr) and Marc Albrighton (35km/hr) are next on the list with speeds set against Bournemouth, ahead of Stoke City's Mame Biram Diouf, who hit 34.97 km/hr against Norwich in August.
Vardy completes the top five with his second appearance on the list - 34.95 km/hr against Bournemouth.
The EA Player Performance Index technology makes it possible to establish accurate data showing the top speeds that a player reaches during a Premier League game.
