Having cost £88.5million, much is expected of the Ukraine winger, but his appearance for Liverpool at the weekend was his first competitive action since November due to winter and World Cup breaks in former club Shakhtar Donetsk.
This is all the more impressive as he recorded a top speed of 36.63km/h at Anfield.
According to Opta, this beats the previous campaign record set by Everton’s Anthony Gordon (36.61 km/h).
Darwin Nunez and Erling Haaland are also in the top 5 with 36.53 and 36.22 km/h respectively.
A second Chelsea player is a somewhat surprising addition to the league’s fastest players. Denis Zakaria comes fifth with a top speed of 36.09km/h, the midfielder on loan having played just four Premier League games.
Mudryk, 22, has been tipped to excel at Stamford Bridge after his impressive debut appearance.
Cesar Azpilicueta said: “He’s a player who can have that mix between playing good football with his feet and running in space. You could see his speed.
Trevoh Chalobah told Standard Sport: “You can see he’s a very exciting player. We’ve seen the problems he can cause and it’s a good thing he’s had the time and we hope there will be exciting things to come.
“We needed him today to stretch the pitch, he ran behind a few times and you could see the danger he was causing. He’s a guy who likes to run with the ball and without the ball.
