Another season is done and dusted as Manchester United supporters can be pleased with their team’s display over the course of the term. On the back of registering their lowest points tally in the Premier League history, United made a poor start to the 2022-23 campaign. However, they bounced back from that setback to finish third in the league against all odds. Besides, the Red Devils ended their trophy drought by lifting the EFL Cup but lost in the FA Cup final to local foes Manchester City.
Overall, this has been an extremely positive season for Manchester United, something the players and the supporters can be proud of. A lot of credit must be given to Erik ten Hag for getting the best out of the bunch of players he had at his disposal this time around. Now that the season is over, it is time to analyse some of the important aspects of Manchester United’s performances. Let us look at the fastest United players of the 2022-23 season.
Who were the fastest Manchester United players?
Manchester United’s in-form striker Marcus Rashford has unsurprisingly topped this list. The English international clocked 35.95 km/hr, as per the data provided by the Premier League‘s official research. Rashford has always been known as one of the fastest players around. He is fast in both with and without the ball, and can also match it off with impressive dribbling skills. He has also added goals to his game, making him the perfect threat for Manchester United up top.
Diogo Dalot is second in the list after clocking 35.76 km/hr this season. Not many would have anticipated to see the Portuguese full-back at the top end of this table. There are believed to be other quick players in United’s ranks but Dalot was never considered by many to be part of that group. Hence, this latest revelation might come as a surprise for many supporters and that will allow them to look at the full-back in a different manner going forward.
Antony completes top three
The Brazilian winger, who predominantly plays on the right flank, has registered 35.29 km/hr in the recently concluded campaign. Antony is known for his quick pace, dribbling abilities and deadly left foot. Hence, it is not a surprise to see him have a place in the top three positions. Left-backs Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia are fourth and fifth respectively. Check the table below to find out more about the fastest Manchester United players in the 2022-23 Premier League season.
