The 32-year-old central defender is playing in the 14th Premier League season of his career and the former England international has made 348 Premier League appearances to date.

Daniel Sturridge comes in at 9th place on the list recording a speed of 27.96 km/h.

Sturridge has fell victim to constant injury problems in the last couple of seasons, although the Liverpool striker no longer frightens defends with his blistering pace he has been able to score some massively important goals for the Reds this season.

It looks as though Sturridge has shown fans that he is still a force to be reckoned with.

Sturridge’s Liverpool teammate Adam Lallana is the second slowest in the league behind only Gary Cahill. Lallana recorded a speed of 26.89 km/h.

Lallana has been limited to a single Premier League substitute appearance this season. Liverpool's midfield ranks are extremely strong and Lallana will find opportunities hard to come by for Liverpool this season.
