Manchester United duo Marcus Rashford and Erik ten Hag nominated for Premier League POTM and MOTM awards
Marcus Rashford and Erik ten Hag from Manchester United have been nominated for the Premier League Player and Manager of the Month awards, respectively.
The England international will vie for the honour alongside Philip Billing, Kevin de Bruyne, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Alex Iwobi and Jacob Ramsey, via (h/t Manchester Evening News).
The Red Devils boss, on the other hand, has Tottenham Hotspur head coach Antonio Conte and AFC Bournemouth caretaker manager Gary O’Neil, via Premier League on Twitter (h/t MEN).
Fans can vote for Rashford on the EA SPORTS website until 12:00 BST on Monday, 26 September. The 24-year-old seems to have regained his confidence under Ten Hag.
This month, the Red Devils have played two fixtures. We visited the King Power Stadium and beat Leicester City 1-0. Rashford assisted the goal for Jadon Sancho.
United also faced Arsenal at Old Trafford in September. The Gunners were on top of the table, having won every game to that point. However, the Red Devils got the better of them and handed the North London side their first defeat of the 2022/23 campaign.
Rashford scored two goals against Arsenal and provided the assist for the first. Antony opened the scoring for United on his debut in the 35th minute.
Ten Hag’s decisions during this time have evidently been pivotal. After the Red Devils lost the opening two games, the Dutch manager made some big changes to the team. He dropped Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo to the bench. Since then, the Manchester-based club have won four games in a row in the PL.
