Manchester United Football Club have endured a topsy-turvy 2019/20 season, though before the Coronavirus epidemic halted play, the Reds were trending upwards.
While football remains absent from our lives, attention has largely turned to transfer stories and behind-the-scenes goings-on.
Their stats have covered every Premier League game played this term and the first thought that came to my mind was it’d either be Daniel James or Marcus Rashford, I was wrong…
Although those guys finished third and fourth respectively (Fred second!), it was Mason Greenwood who clocked the top speed, of 37.60km/h against Everton during the 1-1 draw earlier this month…
Greenwood is an incredibly gifted athlete who is improving year-on-year. This term will always be remembered as his breakthrough campaign, but nobody knew he had pace like this.
In short-sharp bursts, Greenwood can go toe-to-toe with the best of them which only adds another tool to his incredible arsenal. Not only is this kid a lethal finisher, great with both feet and extremely calm, he’s also a huge threat on the counter-attack.
These are our five top speeds recorded this term:
Everton (a) = Greenwood (37.60)
Everton (h) = Fred (37.29)
Burnley (a) = James (36.90)
Liverpool (a) = James (36.50)
Crystal Palace (h) = Rashford (36.32)
