Fastest Manchester United Players

Right before penning down a move to Inter Milan for €80m, Romelu Lukaku leaked results from a speed test to prove all of his critics wrong.

Now, it is up to you to judge if a player’s pace can be determined by just one session. We all know, Luke Shaw does not deserve to be at the very bottom of this list. Astounding to think that Marcos Rojo, Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay was ranked above the Englishman.

5. Ashley Young

Super Fast Manchester United Players

No, just no! When have you ever seen Chris Smalling clock anything close to 35 km/hr? I simply cannot accept that. The 29-year-old centre-half is in no way faster than a winger, who has been trained to beat defenders with his pace.

Some of Ashley Young’s pace might be slipping out of his boots, now that he is 34 but I refuse to believe that he is slower than Chris Smalling! How in the hell is Jesse Lingard even lower on this list?

4. Daniel James – Fastest Manchester United Players

It was a bit of surprise to see the 21-year-old fourth on this list given that pace is his best trait by a fair margin. United shelled out £15m to sign him from Swansea City not because he is a complete winger with terrific playmaking abilities. James is still a bit raw with his passing and finishing but the one place he excels at is breezing past defenders.

Check out some of his highlights from last season –

The man is a rocketship. Give him the ball and empty space to run into and he is gone! Good luck, winning the ball back.

3. Tahith Chong

Speedy Red Devils Footballers

Tahith Chong is one of the most promising youth products to come out of the Red Devils academy. One might think that the Dutchman’s extravagant hairdo might be pulling him back in a straight sprint but that does not seem to be the case.

Chong made his debut last season, in a 2-0 FA Cup victory over Reading. He also made his Champions League debut in the 1-3 win over Paris Saint-Germain in March 2019. The teenager has been primarily trained as a winger but he can appear in the central attacking midfield role as well.

He has a dominant left-foot with remarkable dribbling abilities. Chong has represented the Netherlands at every youth level. He is of Chinese descent but was born in Curacao. Many view him to be a future star at United but playing time will be hard to come by, especially when there are so many established stars in the first team.

2. Marcus Rashford

There was never any doubt that Marcus Rashford would make the top 5 of this list. The forward is wicked fast and has the physique to go along with it.

A post shared by Marcus Rashford (@marcusrashford) on

At 6 feet 1 inch, he is ridiculously athletic and built to play this sport. Those long limbs of helps him carry the ball with long strides but also gives him the agility to dribble in between tight spaces.

Rashford grew up playing as an attacking midfielder but he made his senior debut as a striker. Now, he has grown into a versatile forward, capable of playing from the wings as well. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer prefers playing him centrally but many believe he is far more lethal as a winger.

The Englishman recently was awarded with a huge salary bump in his new contract. It seemed overdue after the performances he put in for the side. Rashford’s potential does not seem to have a ceiling and he is expected to be the face of this great football club in a few years time.

1. Diogo Dalot

Quickest Manchester United Players

Diogo Dalot is one of the last signings made by the former Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese fullback was signed from FC Porto for around £19m.

He is capable of covering both the flanks and has an attacking bone which could be further developed for the future. His speed is certainly one of be reckoned with, making him so dangerous on the overlapping runs.

United fans got to see some of what Dalot is capable of under Ole Solskjaer. The teenager is a good dribbler, capable of creating space for himself. He still needs to tweak his defensive game which is why the Red Devils went out and splashed £50m on Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Dalot will have the opportunity to learn as an understudy.

  1. This is wrong. Opta clocked Rudiger the fastest at 35.19km/h. The fastest is Sane who did 35.48km/h during when they played us in September
