YouTuber BMOnus used FIFA Career Mode to find out what team fared better – a side made up of the world’s fastest players, or 11 of the slowest.

The slowest team, who for this experiment is Manchester United, includes the likes of Olivier Giroud and the legendary Francesco Totti up front.

Bizarrely, Per Mertesacker is left on the bench – even though he’s widely regarded as having zero pace.

The fastest team, playing as Manchester City, features Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang up front – all with FIFA speed scores well into the 90s.

Even the keeper, Aleksandr Belenov has a 77 sprint speed rating – so he’s no slouch.
