Vote: Player of the Month

ManUtd.com is delighted to announce David De Gea, Adnan Januzaj and Wayne Rooney as the three nominees for our Player of the Month award for October.

The triumvirate of Reds were all central to United enjoying a much-improved month in all competitions, yielding four wins and two draws. Here, we summarise their contributions...

David De Gea earned praise for his remarkable save to deny Sunderland's Emanuele Giaccherini, an effort that Peter Schmeichel cited as the "best in Premier League history". The Spaniard went on to impress against Stoke City, prompting Javier Hernandez to describe him as "probably the best goalkeeper in the world."

Adnan Januzaj will never forget October 2013, it's safe to say. The 18-year-old became an overnight star after scoring twice at Sunderland before signing a five-year contract with the Reds, keeping him at Old Trafford until June 2018. A man of the match award against Southampton followed.

Wayne Rooney maintained the form that won him our September award and he missed only the Shakhtar Donetsk match. His performance against Stoke was particularly impressive as he scored the all-important second equaliser in United's dramatic comeback.
