Ashley Young says Theo Walcott is the quickest player he has ever lined up with or against during his career.

Arsenal star Walcott is known for his searing pace, although his status as the Gunners’ fastest player has been challenged by the arrival of Hector Bellerin in recent months.

However, Manchester United winger Young says Walcott is by far the quickest player he has ever lined up with or against.

Former Aston Villa star Young told United’s website: “Theo Walcott with England. Theo again, with Arsenal.”

Walcott is currently sidelined with a calf injury and is understood to be due to return to action for Arsenal late this month or in early December.

The England international picked up the problem early on in the 3-0 League Cup loss to Sheffield United last month.

Arsenal return to Premier League action with a trip to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday afternoon, while Manchester United take on Watford earlier in the day.
