We've identified the following five candidates for their contributions across the month...
Michael Carrick – The midfielder is getting back to his metronome-like best, helping dictate the tempo and unlock defences with his precise passing. Started six out of eight games.
Nani – His importance seems ever increasing, as he revels in the responsibility of being United’s main creator. Crucial assists included the cross for Vidic’s equaliser at Villa.
Ji-sung Park – The Korean played a key part in breaking down stubborn opposition, from scoring twice in the 2-1 win over Wolves to setting up Evra’s header against Wigan.
Rafael – The tough-tackling Brazilian helped to keep clean sheets in three of his four November games and was also a good attacking outlet, creating Chico's goal versus Wigan.
Nemanja Vidic – No-one’s worked harder than Nemanja to tighten things up. Still a league ever-present in 2010/11, the powerhouse notched his third goal to salvage a point at Villa Park.
