The United players celebrate at Arsenal.

Who is United's December Player of the Month?

It was an incredibly hectic December for Manchester United, with nine fixtures played across all competitions, and the time has now come for you to vote for our Player of the Month.

The Reds began the final month of 2017 with the 3-1 win at Arsenal that seems an age ago and finished with the draw against Southampton.

Our nominees are Phil Jones, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata, who were selected despite competition from colleagues such as David De Gea, Victor Lindelof, Luke Shaw and Ashley Young.

You can cast your vote via a poll on our official Twitter account, which closes at 11:00 GMT on Thursday.

Check out our recap on each of their individual displays...
PHIL JONES

Appearances/Goals in December: 5 / 0
The defender continued to be a solid presence after missing the early part of the month due to injury. A brave centre-back with good organisational skills, he helped to pick up clean sheets against Bournemouth and Southampton. His all-round performances impressed the judges with his tackling and heading.

JESSE LINGARD

Appearances/Goals: 5 (1)/5
The livewire forward has been genuinely outstanding of late, and has become an integral part of the team. Revelling in a central role with even more creative responsibility, he bagged doubles at the Emirates Stadium and in rescuing a point against Burnley. The England international also found the target in the victory at West Bromwich Albion and looks a stand-out candidate for the award.

JUAN MATA

Appearances/Goals: 5 (1)/2 
Clearly in form, the Spaniard was superb at Leicester City and scored twice in the 2-2 draw (watch below). He set up Marcus Rashford's goal in the win over CSKA Moscow in our final Champions League group game and also Romelu Lukaku's winner against Bournemouth. Playing with verve and intelligence, the 29-year-old has been a real positive influence.
