Liverpool star becomes second-fastest player in Premier League history

Dominik Szoboszlai recorded the second fastest speed in the Premier League history during a shocking moment in Liverpool’s win over Wolves.

He started his team’s come-from-behind victory at Molineux as Liverpool beat Wolves 3-1 on Saturday.

Hwang Hee-chan opened the scoring in the game, with the visitors hitting back through second-half goals from Gakpo, Andy Robertson and Hugo Bueno (own-goal).

Liverpool quickly switched things around at the break after their underwhelming first half as Szoboszlai dropped deeper.

He had more defensive responsibilities in his new role in the team, and he showed he’s capable of tracking back from midfield.

But, in the second half, Pedro Neto led a counter attack, with the Hungarian midfielder sprinting back to get goal side of the Wolves star.

While doing so, he reached a top speed of 36.76kph – only Kyle Walker has recorded a faster speed in England’s top flight.

The Manchester City star clocked a top speed of 37.31kph last campaign.

As for Szoboszlai, it’s another wrinkle in his game as he is currently enjoying a superb start to his Liverpool career.

Speaking after the result, the 22-year-old midfielder revealed the half-time conversations that led to Liverpool’s win on the road.

“That we didn’t give up,” he said when asked about the key factor in the Reds’ victory.

“At half-time the manager talked to us about the passion and what we needed in the second half, the work and what we needed to put into the game. I think we switched the formation and then everybody did their job and we turned the game.”

He added: “I think everyone would be even happier if we were not 1-0 down!

“But if we like to win like this then let’s continue, but let’s win at the end of the day, always.”

Szoboszlai has started in each of Liverpool’s Premier League matches this season.
