Man United November Player of the Month nominees: One academy player among the three nominees

Manchester United have picked three academy players to battle it out for the November Player of the Month title. 

Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford, and Brandon Williams all played crucial roles as Man United booked a place in the last 32 of the UEFA Europa League, and recorded an impressive 3-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion.

The month also saw the Old Trafford side battle from two goals down to draw 3-3 at the Bramall Lane against a spirited Sheffield United. 

Mason Greenwood - 5 appearances, 2 goals

Greenwood was a mainstay in United's lineup for the entire month of November, playing in all matches, and was on the scoresheet against Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League as United won 3-0.

He was man-of-the-match on the day, having also contributed to Antony Martial's second goal. He was also heavily involved as United came from two goals down to draw 3-3 against Sheffield United, scoring a goal in the process.  

Marcus Rashford - 4 appearances, 3 goals

Rashsford has been United's best player in recent weeks and scored one, assisted one as United swept aside Partizan 3-0.

Three days later, the 22-year-old netted for the third consecutive game at Old Trafford, driving a shot in off the crossbar to kill off Brighton’s brief hopes of a revival.

At Bramall Lane, the young Englishman assisted Mason Greenwood's goal before giving United the lead as they fought from two goals down to draw 3-3.

Brandon Williams - 3 appearances, 1 goal

With captain Ashley Young suspended for the match against Sheffield, Williams was named in a Premier League starting line-up for the first time, and the teenager heavily impressed. 

He capped his performance of the evening with a sumptuous finish on the half-volley to halve the scores and start the comeback.
