Rashford is our November Player of the Month

Sunday 01 December 2019 12:00

Marcus Rashford has been voted Manchester United's Player of the Month for November 2019, in recognition of his influential form.

The flourishing forward made four appearances and scored three goals, against Partizan Belgrade, Brighton & Hove Albion and Sheffield United, to take his tally to 10 for the campaign so far.  

Rashford earned 53 per cent of votes that were cast in our Official App, to claim his first monthly award of the term after wins by Daniel James (August) and Scott McTominay (October, November). 

Marcus was nominated alongside his fellow youth products Brandon Williams and Mason Greenwood, who each finished second and third in the poll with 37 and 10 per cent respectively. 

Thanks to everybody who voted in our Player of the Month poll and congratulations to our victorious no.10.
Rashford scored a well-worked goal against Sheffield United in his last outing of November.

Rather than individual prizes, Rashford’s mind is currently 100 per cent focused on today’s Premier League match against Aston Villa and securing three important points in the Premier League. 

The Academy graduate scored a lovely goal when the Midlands club last visited the Theatre of Dreams in April 2016, delicately back-heeling the ball into the net from close range. 

Based on his excellent form in November, our pacey forward will feel confident about netting against Villa once again and adding to his tally of 10 club goals for the season so far. 

That number is edging closer to his career best of 13 goals in a single campaign, which he achieved in the 2017/18 and 2018/19 seasons.

Should Marcus score in a victory today, it will be a perfect start to a huge week in which the Reds will host Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night, before tackling the Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday. 

Of course, this afternoon’s 16:30 GMT kick-off is also the first of nine fixtures across all competitions in the month of December, which is an exciting challenge for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Reds. 

MUTV’s live coverage of United v Aston Villa begins at 15:00 GMT.
