Many Manchester United fans will be expecting players like Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford or Alexis Sanchez to be the fastest Manchester United player so far but you will be wrong if you had suggested that.
According to statistics released by Opta, Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku is Manchester United’s fastest player so far this season.
Lukaku’s top speed of 34.894 km/h in the win at Watford is the fastest by any Manchester United player so far this season.
Lukaku is also the fourth fastest player in the Premier League so far this season. Isaac Mbenza of Huddersfield clocked a speed of 34.953 km/h against Burnley and that is the fastest by any player in the Premier League this season.
