Shinji's your star man

United fans continue to be impressed with summer signing Shinji Kagawa and have voted the Japanese midfielder the Reds' Man of the Match following Wednesday's win against Galatasaray.

Kagawa was heavily involved in United's goal, playing an inch-perfect return pass to Michael Carrick, who skipped around the goalkeeper before finding the net on seven minutes.

The 23-year-old, who scooped the recent August Player of the Month award, also created an early chance for Nani, displayed an assured first touch throughout and found space between the lines on a night when the Reds often found life tough against the Turkish champions.

Almost 40 per cent of fans plumped for the Japanese international in our online poll, with Michael Carrick and David De Gea sharing the majority of the other votes.
