If you need help in making your decision, we have summarised each nominee's November contributions below.
MASON GREENWOOD – 5 appearances, 2 goals
Greenwood was one of only two United players – along with Jesse Lingard – to feature in all five of our games in November, and he got the month off to a fantastic start by firing home the opening goal in a convincing 3-0 win over Partizan Belgrade. The youngster later showed his grit and determination to chase down a clearance which led to Anthony Martial’s second, and was recognised as United’s Man of the Match as we confirmed qualification from Europa League Group L. A first-ever Premier League strike followed a fortnight later in the 3-3 draw at Bramall Lane, with the teenager’s 73rd-minute introduction helping launch United’s late fightback.
MARCUS RASHFORD – 4 appearances, 3 goals
Our no.10 picked up where he left off in October, laying on Greenwood’s goal against Partizan before adding to the scoreline with a fine left-footed strike himself early in the second half. Three days later, the 22-year-old netted for the third consecutive game at Old Trafford, driving a shot in off the crossbar to kill off Brighton’s brief hopes of a revival. After the international break, during which he took his England tally into double figures, Rashford provided a sumptuous, measured assist for Greenwood’s equaliser against the Blades, before putting United in front with a cool finish at the end of a slick counter-attacking move.
BRANDON WILLIAMS – 3 appearances, 1 goal
With captain Ashley Young suspended for the visit of the Seagulls, Williams was named in a Premier League starting line-up for the first time, and the confident teenager made a huge impression as he was named Man of the Match by users of our Official App. He retained his place a fortnight later for our trip to Sheffield and, after a difficult first hour for the Reds, sparked our memorable revival, meeting a failed clearance on the half-volley to leave Blades’ goalkeeper Simon Moore rooted to the spot. It was a true striker’s finish from the left-back, although he made it clear that there was no time for celebration, running straight back to the centre circle after scoring as United began the fightback.
