Marcus Rashford celebrates scoring against Newcastle

Rashford claims PFA award for December

Marcus Rashford has been voted the PFA Bristol Street Motors Fans’ Premier League Player of the Month for December.

Voted for by supporters, the accolade recognises our no.10's superb individual performances over the last month, during which he netted five goals in seven league games.

The 22-year-old claimed 37 per cent of the nominations, placing him well clear of Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold and Sadio Mane, who came second and third respectively.

As we confirmed on New Year's Day, Rashford also won the club's Player of the Month award for December, after racking up 40 per cent of the votes on our Official App.

A MONTH TO REMEMBER

Rashford's December got off to a flyer, with a match-winning brace against Tottenham followed up by a mature performance at the Etihad, where he won and scored the penalty to set us on our way to a memorable 2-1 derby day victory over Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

After two disappointing results against Everton and Watford, Rashford rocketed back into form over the Christmas period.

A back-post header in the Boxing Day clash with Newcastle saw the Academy graduate surpass his personal best league goal tally for a season for the Reds, and two days later he struck once again, this time in the closing stages, to give United a deserved, hard-fought victory at Burnley.

Our homegrown forward has now racked up 12 goals in 21 Premier League games in 2019/20, placing him joint-fourth on the top scorers' list.

Leicester's Jamie Vardy currently leads the way on 17, with Southampton striker Danny Ings and Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang just ahead of Rashford on 13.
