and Antonio Valencia.
A 1-0 win at Goodison Park - always a tough place to go - wrapped up the month. Chicharito netted the all-important goal, while a clean sheet marshalled by the returning Nemanja Vidic helped heal the defensive wounds. United remained in sight of the leaders.
Goal of the month - Darren Fletcher vs City
A sweet strike into the top corner that would have been memorable in any derby, except this one.
Player of the month - Javier Hernandez
Not the most glorious of months for anyone in Red, but Chicharito’s goals pinched a point at Anfield and all three at Everton, so his case for being most influential is persuasive.
Quote of the month
“It was our worst-ever day. Even as a player I don’t think I ever lost 6-1… [But] we’ll come back. By January we’ll be okay.” - Sir Alex Ferguson
