Yesterday, the

Daily Telegraph

revealed which players have the fastest top speed in the Premier League.

Now, they've turned their attention to the slow coaches.

Opta tracks the top speed of every player in the top flight. Here's the 20 whose fastest...is slowest. We've taken out goalkeepers from this list, and only included players to feature in three or more games for their club.

20. Ilkay Gundogan, Manchester City - Top Speed: 30.15km/h

Who could blame the German international to be getting back up to speed after a serious knee injury ruled him out for four months.

After arriving at City from Borussia Dortmund in a £21m ($NZ36m) deal this summer, Gundogan finally made his 'perfect' debut last month and has become an instant hit with fans.

19. Leon Britton, Swansea - Top Speed: 30.13km/h

A stalwart of the Swansea set-up having spent much of the last 13 years in Wales, Britton's pace isn't what it was now that he's 34 years old.

18. Memphis Depay, Manchester United - Top Speed: 30.12km/h

Can this Dutchman get a break? It's been a sorry tale of affairs for Depay since the arrival of Jose Mourinho and this stat is unlikely to help his cause either.

17. Max Gradel, Bournemouth - Top Speed: 30.06km/h

The Ivorian nearly left in the transfer window such was his dismay with being a bit-part player for Eddie Howe.

While he has started Bournemouth's two EFL Cup contests, he is yet to force his way into Howe's first-team plans in the Premier League and looks likely to be linked with a move away again in January.

16. James Ward-Prowse, Southampton - Top Speed: 29.99km/h

The 21-year-old has started all three of Southampton's Europa League games to date - including the 1-0 loss to Inter Milan last week - but has been limited to time off the bench in the league.

15. Luis Hernandez, Leicester - Top Speed: 29.92km/h

Defending champions made the Spanish defender their first signing of the summer. Has played every minute of Leicester's last two Champions League wins, but also featured in Leicester's humbling 3-0 loss to Chelsea earlier this month.

14. Harry Maguire, Hull - Top Speed: 29.91km/h

The defender was linked with a move to fellow Premier League new-boys Middlesbrough in August having been instrumental in their promotion-winning season under Steve Bruce.

Has this season been present for Hull in heavy defeats to Liverpool (5-1), Arsenal (1-4) and Bournemouth (6-1.

Things can only get better for the 23-year-old.

13. Santi Cazorla, Arsenal - Top Speed: 29.9km/h

Despite lacking blistering pace, Arsenal look a more fluid and coherent team with Cazorla in their ranks which is why his absence against Middlesbrough at the weekend was deeply felt.

12. Tom Huddlestone, Hull - Top Speed: 29.87km/h

Pace and Huddlestone have never gone hand-in-hand. A player whose weight has time and time again been questioned, the former Spurs man remains an accomplished passer of the ball.

11. Mohamed Elneny, Arsenal - Top Speed: 29.86km/h

Made his first Premier League start against Middlesbrough, the summer signing didn't pull up any trees in their goalless draw but was a steady head in the centre of the park for Arsenal.

10. Andy King, Leicester - Top Speed: 29.7km/h

The Welsh international remains a consistent performer for the defending champions this season - even if he isn't the quickest.

9. Craig Gardner, West Brom - Top Speed: 29.62km/h

Started the opening two games of West Brom's campaign before dropping to the bench. At 29-years-old has more recently started West Brom's U23s side in the EFL Trophy match against Luton.

8. Hal Robson-Kanu, West Brom - Top Speed: 29.49km/h

Who cares if the West Brom striker is lacking in a little speed? Remember that goal he struck for Wales at Euro 2016 - of course you do.

7. Gareth Barry, Everton - Top Speed: 29.4km/h

Everton midfielder celebrated his 600th Premier League appearance last month and has been key to Ronald Koeman's flying start at Goodison Park.

6. Lucas, Liverpool - Top Speed: 29.37km/h

The Brazilian nearly joined Galatasaray in the summer transfer window before Jurgen Klopp blocked the move. Has since been limited to bit-part role at Anfield and could leave in January.

5. Olivier Giroud, Arsenal - Top Speed: 29.19km/h

Has struggled with injury this season but has subsequently fallen down the pecking order with the emergence of Alexis Sanchez at No. 9

4. Shaun Maloney, Hull - Top Speed: 28.87km/h

After scoring in his first appearance of the season in a win over Swansea, midfielder's last appearance came in Hull's 6-1 loss at Bournemouth earlier this month.

3. Cesc Fabregas, Chelsea - Top Speed: 28.73km/h

Has struggled to nail down a first team place under Antonio Conte, and is currently injured with a thigh problem.

2. Peter Crouch, Stoke City - Top Speed: 28.58km/h

Never been a striker known for his pace, Crouch has only started one Premier League game this season and is yet to score.

1. Charlie Adam, Stoke City - Top Speed: 26.72km/h

A player who has built his reputation on dead-ball delivery rather than athleticism, Adam is officially the slowest player in the Premier League. Congratulations Chaz.
