Belgian star Romelu Lukaku has presented some proof to hit back at claims from fans over his ‘lack of pace’. The forward shared a video on social media showing the results of a ‘Max Speed’ test of United’s first-team squad.

The results show that Lukaku is in fact the second fastest player in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad, with youngster Diogo Dalot topping the speed charts.
