Last week, the Premier League revealed the top flight’s fastest players so far during the opening stages of the 2023-24 season.
But a Liverpool midfielder has surprisingly surpassed both with his speed during their dramatic late victory against Wolves at Molineux on Saturday.
Dominik Szoboszlai may not be known for his pace but he managed to clock t top speed of 36.76km/h (22mph) during the game.

According to Stats Perform, that puts the midfielder, who joined Liverpool for a fee of £60million from RB Leipzig, third in the fastest players in the top flight in the last three seasons.
He comes in behind Walker, who keeps his position in first place with a top speed of 37.31km/h.
Behind him sits former Brentford and Luton Town winger Chiedozie Ogbene who has clocked up a top speed of 36.93km/h.
Former Chelsea centre-back Antonio Rudiger, who ended a five-year spell at Stamford Bridge back in 2022 joining Real Madrid, is fifth after posting a high speed of 36.72, putting him fourth in the standings.
Brennan Johnson, who signed a five-year deal with Tottenham earlier this summer, but will certainly be missed by former side Nottingham Forest after he clocked up a top speed of 36.70km/h last season.
The Spurs star overtook Mykhailo Mudryk to become one of the fastest players in the league last season, with the Chelsea winger sitting ninth in the speedsters rankings over the past three seasons.
Adama Traore comes in at sixth in the standings with a high speed of 36.64, while Salah ranks seventh.
Anthony Gordon wraps up the top 10 fastest players over the last three seasons, with the Newcastle Man having having returned one goal and one assist at the start of the new Premier League campaign.
