United's Player of the Month announced

Scott McTominay has been voted Manchester United's Player of the Month for October.

The homegrown midfielder ensured we entered the last international break on the back of a win, rather than a defeat, with a dramatic stoppage-time double overturning a one-goal deficit against Brentford at Old Trafford.

A sharp piece of control and slick finish preceded a headed winner, at the death, from Harry Maguire's assist.

It was an incredible intervention by the substitute and he followed it up with the opener in the 2-1 win at Sheffield United, with another composed effort.

The Scotland international was also unlucky not to score against both FC Copenhagen and Manchester City, when denied by top saves from Kamil Grabara and Ederson respectively.

Scott's contribution was enough to earn him 45 per cent of the vote, as he finished above fellow nominees Harry Maguire (30%) and goalkeeper Andre Onana (25%).

McTominay follows in the footsteps of two other midfielders who have scooped the monthly award this term - Bruno Fernandes (August) and Casemiro (September).

This was the third time the Academy product has been nominated since last collecting the trophy in October 2019, which was a second successive accolade for him, after he also picked up the prize for September that year.

Congratulations to Scott and thank you to everybody who voted.
