Vote: Player of the Month

United started March with one trophy - the Carling Cup - after making good progress towards three other pieces of silverware in February.

The Reds won three crucial league games last month, reached the fifth round of the FA Cup and were unfortunate not to beat Inter Milan in the first leg of the Champions League last 16 tie. Many players excelled in the process, but which one stood out for you? Here's our shortlist for February's Player of the Month, vote now at www.manutd.com/polls...

Cristiano Ronaldo - Ronaldo returned to somewhere near his peak form, scored in the FA Cup against Derby and rifled in a spectacular free kick against Blackburn.

Dimitar Berbatov - The mercurial Bulgarian scored and dazzled in the Reds' emphatic win against Fulham at Old Trafford. He then produced an influential performance against Inter.

Michael Carrick -  Carrick dictated the pace of the game in Milan with his exquisite passing range, leading one Italian newspaper to describe his performance as ‘magnifico.’

Rio Ferdinand - Rio was an ever-present in February and produced a particularly commanding form against Ibrahimovic and Adriano in Milan.

Ryan Giggs - The Welshman scored a superb solo goal in the narrow win over West Ham, and then contributed two more virtuoso displays against Derby County and Inter Milan.
