MAN. UNITED midfield baller BRUNO FERNANDES smashed the MATCH vote for December’s Player Of The Month. Hero!
WEST HAM 1-3 MAN. UNITED
The Red Devils found themselves a goal down at half-time, but the introduction of Fernandes and Marcus Rashford totally changed the game! Fernandes provided a perfectly weighted pass for Paul Pogba’s one-touch curler, which helped spark their impressive comeback!
MAN. UNITED 0-0 MAN. CITY
This was a six-pointer between two teams challenging for the title, so we were expecting an action-packed game – but it ended up being a bore draw! Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opted to start Fernandes against The Citizens, but he struggled to make an impact in a game in which The Red Devils didn’t have much of the ball!
SHEFF. UNITED 2-3 MAN. UNITED
Even though Marcus Rashford was their chief tormentor, Fernandes and Paul Pogba dominated in midfield as The Red Devils came from behind again to maintain their perfect away record in the Prem! If it wasn’t for Rashford’s outstanding display, then Fernandes would have been Man Of The Match for his all-action performance!
MAN. UNITED 6-2 LEEDS
The midfielder’s performance against Leeds was his best of all – he scored his first league goal of the month as he slammed a powerful shot past Illan Meslier, before scoring a second from the penalty spot! Not only that, but he also set up Scott McTominay’s first goal, which opened the floodgates at Old Trafford!
DENIED AT THE DEATH!
LEICESTER 2-2 MAN. UNITED
They might not have got the three points they wanted on Boxing Day, but Fernandes produced another Man Of The Match performance for The Red Devils! He assisted Marcus Rashford’s opening goal, before finding the back of the net himself when he latched onto Edinson Cavani’s through ball! If it wasn’t for Leicester’s late equaliser, United would have secured a record-equalling 11th consecutive away win!
MAN. UNITED 1-0 WOLVES
The Red Devils were heading for another draw v Wolves, with just seconds left to play, before Fernandes picked out Marcus Rashford with a long-range pass – and he took full advantage! That meant that Fernandes ended the month with three goals and four assists in the Prem. Hero!
GOAL OF THE MONTH!
After Raphinha’s unstoppable missile for Leeds against Everton won November’s GOTM, JACK HARRISON’s screamer against Newcastle in December means that the award stays in West Yorkshire for another month! The 24-year-old beat Pogba, Son and Haller in our social media vote!
