One key player showed some great performances.

Now he has got an award for it.

English striker Marcus Rashford has been named as the best player for Manchester United in the month of November. A statement in the United website noted: “Marcus Rashford has been voted Manchester United’s Player of the Month for November 2019, in recognition of his influential form.”

In the month, the England forward made four appearances and scored three goals, against Partizan Belgrade, Brighton & Hove Albion and Sheffield United, to take his tally to 10 for the campaign.  Rashford garnered 53 percent of the total votes cast after being nominated alongside defender Brandon Williams and striker Mason Greenwood, who each finished second and third in the poll with 37 and 10 percent respectively.

Wales winger Daniel James and Scott McTominay are the other winners of the award since the season kicked off in August. At the beginning of the new month, the Red Devils hosted Aston Villa looking to get an important win before some turbulent games ahead. But Villa took a shock lead in the 12th minute when Jack Grealish beautifully curled in a shot into the top corner. United were pressed by the visitors’ high intensity, but weathered the storm before Marcus Rashford headed in the equalizer before it struck Tom Heaton to be awarded his own-goal in the 42nd minute. 

United completed the comeback with Victor Lindelof’s strike in the 64th minute. But then Villa bit ack two minutes later with Tyrone Mings’ emphatic goal to restore parity. The Red Devils pegged forward for a winner, but were unable to find it, failing a chance to go 5th in the table. Quite typical. It’s going to be a tough December for sure.
