Warning for Saka ahead of North London derby as Udogie is named Tottenham Hotspur's fastest playerPublished: September 22, 2023
According to sports analytics company Pro Football Focus, Italy U21 international of Nigerian descent Destiny Udogie holds the distinction of being the fastest player at Tottenham Hotspur ahead of the eagerly anticipated heavyweight clash against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
For players who have played a minimum of 400 minutes in the 2023-2024 Premier League season, only three players rank higher than Udogie in terms of the highest maximum speed in the division.
Fulham left-back Antonee Robinson, Burnley centre-back Ameen Al Dakhil and West Ham United defender Emerson are the only players in the Premier League faster than Udogie.
One of the intriguing duels in Sunday's north London derby is that of Bukayo Saka, who plays as an inverted winger, and Tottenham Hotspur left-back Udogie.
And with the latest statistic, Saka has been sent a warning to be on his toes with Pro Football Focus highlighting that one of Udogie's biggest assets is that he has pace to burn apart from his defensive work.
The Tottenham Hotspur number 38 has provided assists in back-to-back away matches in the Premier League, against Bournemouth and Burnley.
Completing the top ten fastest players in the Premier League are Matty Cash, Ollie Watkins, Pedro Neto, Nelson Semedo, Connor Roberts and Milos Kerkez.
