Using data from Opta, we sifted through the players who were bottom of the speed charts, to find only few surprises.

To make it fairer for the players, we didn’t include goalkeepers (that’d be harsh) and the players had to have played over 270 minutes (three full matches) to allow them at least a chance of getting their sprint on.

If you’re interested in those who just missed out (mercifully) from this list, the likes of Jack Wilshere, Mamadou Sakho and Jonathan Hogg all sit outside the top ten.
