Manchester United’s speed demon Daniel James names the other fastest players at Old Trafford… and picks out full back Diogo Dalot as being quicker than Anthony Martial!
- Daniel James is recognised as one of the fastest players in the Premier League
- The winger was asked to pick which of his team-mates could compete with him
- There was no place for Anthony Martial despite the Frenchman’s record speeds
There was a surprise inclusion when Daniel James named the three fastest players at Manchester United.
The Wales international is recognised as one of the quickest players in the Premier League and has demonstrated his lightening speed on the wing for United this season.
Ryan Giggs described the 22-year-old as the fastest player he has ever seen and the winger recorded a speed of 21.76mph against Leicester in September.

But when asked which of his team-mates can compete with him, James made the surprising admission that defender Diogo Dalot is one of the quickest players at the club.
‘It would be me, Diogo [Dalot] and Marcus [Rashford],’ James said.
‘I’ve not seen him full sprint, we’d have a good race I think.
‘Aaron [Wan-Bissaka] is very quick, I don’t think people realise how quick he is but [Diogo] is rapid. I don’t think you’ve probably seen it as much.’

Marcus Rashford also made the top three but there was no place for the rapid Anthony Martial
However, there was no place for Anthony Martial who managed to record a speed of 22mph against Newcastle back in 2016 which matched Jamie Vardy’s record.
Dalot has made just four Premier League starts with 10 appearances in all competitions after spending the majority of the season sidelined through injury.
His only goal came in the 6-0 victory over Tranmere in the FA Cup fourth-round.
James has made 37 appearances in all competitions during his first season with United, scoring four goals and making seven assists.
