Manchester United Player of the Month nominees for October revealed

Manchester United have named three players to battle it out for the club's October Player of the Month award. 

The three, Marcus Rashford, Daniel James and Scott McTominay starred for the club in the last month, leading them to three wins on the road, including Wednesday night's win over Chelsea in the Carabao Cup. 

Marcus Rashford

Rashford has been stunning for Man United in October, playing a total of six matches and scoring four goals in the process. 

The first, against Liverpool, gave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's charges a deserved 1-1 draw in the Premier League, before adding his second of the month against Norwich City at Carrow Road a week later. He should have scored a brace, but his penalty was saved as United won 3-1. 

He then scored a stunning brace at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night in the Carabao Cup tie, including a breathtaking free-kick with 15 minutes to go. 

Scott McTominay

United's academy graduate is becoming increasingly influential for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men and started in five of the club's six matches in October, coming on as a substitute in the other. He was man-of-the-match against Norwich last weekend, scoring the opener and dictating play from the midfield.

He was equally influential against Chelsea on Wednesday and manned the midfield brilliantly against the experienced Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho.

Daniel James

Despite not scoring in October, James' excellent start to life at the club continued with decisive performances, winning man-of-the-match against Liverpool at Old Trafford.

He then assisted Rashford against Norwich, and also won penalties against the Canaries and Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.
