Angel di Maria, Ander Herrera and Rafael have all been nominated for Manchester United’s September Player of the Month award.
New signings Herrera and Di Maria have settled down very well at their new club and both were equally as impressive for different reasons, while Rafael re-found some of his best form against QPR and West Ham.
In three games, Di Maria scored two goals and created two more and was every inch the world class player United fans hoped he would be. Players can usually take some time to settle down at a new club but Di Maria has hit the ground running.
As for Herrera, he has been similarly impressive and brought a real touch of class to central midfield that United have lacked for years. With two goals and one assist, his return has nearly matched Di Maria but the main asset he has brought to the team is a passing dynamic which the team has lacked for some time.
Rafael’s return to form has been a welcome sight for United fans. The Brazilian hadn’t played since March so would have been forgiven for slowly coming back into the side but he showed what United had been missing with some strong performances at right-back.
