Manchester United fans couldn’t unanimously come to a decision in regards to who was October’s player of the month; an improvement on when the struggle was who was the least undeserving.
Fred, Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford were all picked after fine performances following the 6-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspurs in the early phase of the month.
United came back hungry after the international break, tearing apart Newcastle United 4-1, defeating PSG in Paris 2-1, drawing with a stubborn Chelsea and humiliating RB Leipzig 5-0 at home.
It’s safe to say Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has successfully gotten his team to bounce back from that horrid loss to Spurs and they’ll be eyeing Arsenal next.
However, the Red Devils don’t play the Gunners until the first of November and so fans had to pick between the aforementioned trio now.

Not discrediting anyone but Fred deserves it. He's been phenomenal. Hopefully it stays this way. pic.twitter.com/FS6MgiJjXO

Bruno has been his usual fantastic self so it’s a compliment to both Fred and Rashford that he’s hardly being considered.
At a time when the tenacious Brazilian’s value was a little forgotten, he rose to the occasion by putting in tireless performance after tireless performance.
Rashford had been in fine form himself before his remarkable hat-trick vs RB Leipzig and so was deservedly in the conversation as well.
