The trio were in good form during the month, with all of them contributing to United’s unbeaten run over the period.
Smalling was particularly impressive in the 1-0 win over CSKA Moscow at the start of November, producing a vital goal-line clearance with the score level.

Schweinsteiger, meanwhile, forced a late winner against Watford when his effort was helped over the line by Troy Deeney. He then scored his first goal for the club in the 1-1 draw against Leicester City.
Finally, Lingard made the breakthrough into the United first-team and impressed with some livewire displays.
The 22-year-old scored his first competitive goal for United in the 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion and set up Wayne Rooney’s winner against CSKA. While United haven’t been impressive as a whole, the trio deserve credit for their displays and it should be a tightly contested vote.
