Vote for United's Player of the Month in July

Wednesday 29 July 2020 09:00

Three Reds are competing for Manchester United's first July Player-of-the-Month award.

With the season being extended due to the enforced break, United crammed seven matches into the month as the Premier League campaign drew to a close.

There were plenty of impressive performers over this period but the trio in the frame for the trophy are Bruno Fernandes, Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial - find out why below.

Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Nemanja Matic and Marcus Rashford also received nominations.


The Player-of-the-Month poll is now open on our Official App which is free to download.

Be quick to cast your vote, with the poll set to close on Sunday, when the winner will be announced.



The Portugal playmaker is in with a chance of continuing his run of scooping every award since making his debut in February. Even if there were signs of fatigue, which Ole Gunnar Solskjaer acknowledged, he still racked up the goals and assists with the same regularity. He netted his first free-kick for the Reds in the win over Bournemouth and opened the scoring after earning a penalty at Aston Villa.

Two more spot-kicks followed, one at Wembley against Chelsea and another under immense pressure on the final day at Leicester City, when he comfortably outwitted Kasper Schmeichel after a delay due to VAR.

In terms of assists, our reigning Player of the Month posted two against Bournemouth, one for Paul Pogba at Aston Villa, one for Martial in the draw with Southampton and another for Rashford in the win at Crystal Palace.

Two penalties and a free-kick: Fernandes continued where he left off to help United to third place…


The teenager can do no wrong, popping up at crucial moments to boost our bid for a top-four place. Operating on the right-hand side, the Academy product was Man of the Match in three of the matches - against Bournemouth, Aston Villa and West Ham United.

Showing increasing maturity, he stepped up to the plate against the Cherries and killed any hopes they had of causing an upset when smashing two marvellous strikes past Aaron Ramsdale. In his following outing, he fired in another beauty at Villa which further underlined his explosive potential.

With the Reds trailing at home to the Hammers, it was his typically composed finish that earned a precious point - meaning United only needed a draw at Leicester on the final day to make the top four. There was much more to his play than goals though, as his dynamism brought much to the party and it was his important tackle that helped set up the key breakthrough at the King Power Stadium last Sunday.

Greenwood’s goalscoring went into overdrive in July, as our compilation video shows…


The Frenchman is probably in the form of his life, with his all-round play in attack being a real highlight of the month. Working hard from the front, he has been a focal point and weighed in with some highly valuable contributions.

A wonder strike against Bournemouth, a shot that curled into the top corner, emphasised his quality and he was frustrated not to hit the net at Aston Villa, thrashing the ball against the underside of the bar and out and showing his displeasure when withdrawn in the second half without another goal to his name. He took this out on Southampton, showing his strength and intelligence to tee up Rashford for an equaliser before smashing home himself during a Man-of-the-Match display.

Another calm finish against Crystal Palace wrapped up three vital points and, aside from supplying the assist for Greenwood's goal against West Ham, he was brought down for both of the penalties earned in the FA Cup tie with Chelsea and last-day decider at Leicester. The striker's red-hot form has been a major factor in the successful end to the campaign.
