Daniel James may not have been surprisingly the fastest, reaching 36.8 km / h (22.9 mph). Axel Tuanzebe and Jesse Lingard joined their teammate in the top speed table.
Times have been clocked by STATSports, whose vests have been worn by Odion Ighalo and Aaron Wan-Bissaka in recent weeks as they trained in public parks.
Despite struggling on the field this season, Lingard was the best of high speed running (the total distance covered at a speed of 5.5 meters per second or more) with 13,341 meters in one session, ahead of Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay.
United’s players all received individual programs and nutrition menus to keep fit and in shape during the lockdown, which hasn’t played Premier League games since March 9.
United was one of the last teams in action, beating rivals Manchester City 2-0 at Old Trafford on March 8.
