The Welsh international is recognized as one of the fastest players in the Premier League and has shown his 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 registered a speed of 21.76 mph against Leicester in September.

But when asked which of his teammates could compete with him, James made the surprising admission that defender Diogo Dalot is one of the club’s fastest players.
“It would be me, Diogo [Dalot] and Marcus [Rashford]Said James.
“I haven’t seen the full sprint, we would have a good race, I think.
“Aaron [Wan-Bissaka] is very fast I don’t think people realize how fast it is but [Diogo] is fast. I don’t think you’ve probably seen it as much.

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