In the first half, United covered 30.63 miles but in the second half upped this to 31.18. Michael Carrick covered 6.54 miles over 90 minutes which was more than any player on either side.
Our average speed in the second half increased to 3.94 miles per hour from 3.62 miles per hour in the first half, whilst West Broms’s increased to 4.03 mph from 3.76 mph.
Tom Cleverley recorded the highest average speed at 4.54 miles per hour whilst Robin van Persie, who replaced Kagawa with 25 minutes left to play, wasn’t far behind with 4.52 mph. Cleverley, Van Persie, Carrick and Kagawa all recorded higher top speeds than any West Brom player.
Ashley Young recorded the highest top speed for United at 19.84 mph, but wasn’t quite as fast as Peter Odemwingie (20.94 mph) and Graham Dorrans (20.89 mph) for West Brom.
Carrick attempted and completed more passes than any player on the pitch with an 88% completion rate. Whilst Paul Scholes completed all his passes after coming on for the last 8 minutes, Kagawa’s 97% completion rate in the first 65 minutes of the game is probably the most impressive.
