During the goalless draw, Mudryk was clocked as travelling at 36.63km/h. That shot the winger to the top of the charts for the fastest speed run in a Premier League match this season.
Sadly for defenders, it seems as if speed has been added to the Premier League this season as four of the top five fastest players all joined the competition in 2022/23.
Before the match, Don Hutchison had even argued that Mudryk is even quicker than Paris Saint-Germain's fleet-footed striker Kylian Mbappe.
"Mbappe would beat him over 20 yards, anything over 20 yards, he would win," former midfielder Hutchison said of Mudryk. "He is electric and he is strong and he is powerful and once he gets going, he is an unbelievable runner."
Fulham's defenders will be next to deal with Mudryk's speed when the Premier League resumes on Friday 3 February as Chelsea host the Cottagers.
