EA Sports released their list of the Top 20 Fastest Players in FIFA 17, our interest was piqued: with which players could we cause the most damage with in the new game? As it is usual that the fastest players are often the most dangerous.

For years FIFA players have opted for the fastest players in the game for their multiplayer sessions. While it’s all well and good putting together intricate passing moves, in the world of FIFA, there are few better ways to score than with a rapid counter attack.

This was especially true in FIFA 15, where many gamers using Borussia Dortmund online chose to start Aubameyang over Immobile upfront, despite the superior finishing skills of the Italian striker.

The top 20 list does feature three Premier League stars, with Leicester City new boy Ahmed Musa (19th fastest – 93 pace), joining Raheem Sterling (15th fastest – 93 pace) and Hector Bellerin (4th fastest – 95 pace) on the list. Elsewhere, Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale (7th fastest – 94 pace) and Barcelona’s Jordi Alba (16th fastest – 93 pace) are joined by lesser known stars including Vancouver Whitecaps’ striker Kekuta Manneh and SpVgg Greuther Fürth’s Mathis Bolly.

From the revealed player ratings we can see that Theo Walcott was missed out of the top 20 fastest players. While he was the fastest player in FIFA 16 and didn’t make it this year.
