🚨 Man United's Player of the Month nominees for December

Manchester United have picked three players to battle for the Player of the Month award for December.  

The Red Devils have been the most in-form team in the Premier League through the month, with impressive performances seeing them move to second on the table. 

They however had a disappointing campaign in Europe, as defeats to PSG and RB Leipzig saw them drop out of the Champions League and into Europa. 

United also progressed to the Carabao Cup semi-finals after beating Everton 2-0, where they will face neighbours Manchester City. 

Back in the Premier League, Ole Gunnar's men picked wins against West Ham United, Sheffield United, Leeds United and Wolverhampton Wanderers, and secured draws with Manchester City and Leicester City. 

Collectively the team has been impressive, but three players stood out, and they will battle for Player of the Month award. 

Bruno Fernandes

Arguably Man United's best player of 2020, the midfielder has been a revelation. He has been the pick of the pile and delivered week in week out. 

The Portuguese starred in all the games he featured in, starting with the 3-1 win over West Ham when he came on as a substitute to help the Reds to come from a goal down. 

He then scored twice against Leeds in a 6-2 win, before shining once against at the King Power Stadium on Boxing Day. 

He is gunning to win the award for the sixth time out of nine and has every chance of beating the other two. 

Fred

The Brazilian has grown into an influential figure at Old Trafford and one of the most trusted generals for Ole Gunnar. 

He picked a redcard against PSG in the Champions League which saw him miss the match against Leipzig but has been a mainstay in the Reds' midfield through the month. 

He was particularly impressive against Leeds, playing alongside Scott McTominay. 

Key stat: Fred completed more passes (35) and won back possession more often (10 times) than any other Red during the Leeds win, while none of United's players managed more tackles (five) or blocks (two).

Marcus Rashford

Rashford's goal against Wolves on Tuesday night deep into injury time gave United all the three points and it underlined his importance to the team. 

Just like Fernandes, Rashford has been one of the shining lights at Old Trafford, scoring key goals when it mattered most. 

He also scored a brace at Bramall Lane and was on the scoresheet on Boxing Day against Leicester which was also his 50th Premier League goal. 

Key stat: Only Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo have reached a half-century of Premier League goals for United at a younger age than Rashford.
