Memphis, Lingard and Rashford nominated for Man United’s Player of the Month

by Sam Peoples

Memphis Depay, Jesse Lingard and man of the moment Marcus Rashford have been nominated for Manchester United’s February Player of the Month award.

All three played an important role over the last week which saw Man United recover from disappointment in Denmark to seal a hat-trick of wins which has reinvigorated the fans.

The fact Rashford has been nominated having only played two games – Memphis and Lingard both had 7 – is indicative of just how he was against both FC Midtjylland and Shrewsbury Town.

However, my vote wouldn’t go to Rashford, it would go to Memphis.

After what has been a pretty tough first season at United, Memphis has shown in these last three games what he’s really capable of and stepped up to the plate when we needed it most, against Midtjylland especially.

As he’s a confidence player, winning this award is the sort of boost which could make a real difference for him and that’s why I want to see him win it. Rashford has been brilliant in the last two games but in the overall context of the year, what we’ve seen from Memphis means he deserves this award.
