Manchester United's Fastest Players in 2019/20 Premier League Season Revealed

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's ​Manchester United have finally found some form, going 11 matches without defeat before football was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

United's ability to break at lightning-quick speed this season has seen them pick them pick up a number of positive results against the so-called big six sides in 2019/20, including three wins over local rivals Manchester City and three more over Chelsea.

This Manchester United side is overflowing with pace, but there has been a debate among fans as to who the fastest player actually is. Marcus Rashford? Daniel James? Perhaps Aaron Wan-Bissaka?

Well, the kind folk at Opta have shared the information with ​Man Utd, who have since posted the results on their ​official website. Summer recruit James has clocked the fastest individual speed in 12 of United's 29 ​Premier League matches this campaign - more than any of his teammates.

​Rashford, meanwhile, has registered the top speed in nine of the Red Devils' 29 league games so far this season, but the Englishman has been out of action since January through injury. 

Daniel James

However, neither Rashford nor James have actually registered the top speed for United this season in the league. 

Wan-Bissaka then, or Luke Shaw maybe, or Anthony Martial? 

No, no and no. 

Instead, it is young Mason Greenwood, who has recorded the top speed of any Red Devil this season. The Englishman hit a blistering top speed of 37.60 km/h during United's 1-1 draw with Everton at the start of March. 


Greenwood has quickly forged a reputation as a natural finisher, with the 18-year-old registering an impressive 12 goals this term. This mixed with the fact that he is actually terrifyingly quick means he is even more of a nightmare for defenders than previously thought.

This also means that he moves above Brazilian Fred in the standings - the midfielder recorded a speed of 37.29 km/h in another draw with the Toffees back in December. James takes third and fourth place in the top speed table, while Rashford comes in at fifth place.
