The nominations of Rashford, Casemiro, Martinez and Shaw are reflective of their significant contributions to United this term.
Since arriving at Old Trafford, Casemiro and Martinez have completely transformed the team’s defensive fortunes. The duo are a crucial part of United’s spine.
Casemiro recently returned to competitive Premier League action in the 2-0 win against Nottingham Forest after serving a four-match domestic ban after being given his marching orders during the Southampton game just before the international break.
United confirmed in a statement that Martinez’s season ended after picking up an injury during the first-leg Europa League clash vs. Sevilla.
Shaw and Rashford are also facing a race against time to be fit enough for the return fixture in Spain on Thursday.
The English pair missed the win at the City Ground on Sunday.
