Juan Mata's delightful set-piece kickstarted our comeback victory at Juventus in November 2018…

Anthony Martial, who scooped the award in October following his strike against Everton, was second behind Mata with 11 per cent, while youngster Mason Greenwood completed the top three after netting for the Under-19s against Young Boys in the UEFA Youth League.

Check out the full result from the November vote below...

Mata is the fourth recipient of the award so far this season, following in the footsteps of Martial, Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw. It's the first time our no.8 has picked up the trophy since doing so for his thumping finish against Leicester City in September 2016.

Congratulations, Juan! There certainly were some superb contenders to choose from this month — why not take another look?
