Marcus Rashford, David de Gea and Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag win Premier League February awards
Manchester United trio Marcus Rashford, David de Gea and Erik ten Hag have won three of the Premier League awards from the month of February, via ManUtd on Twitter.
The 25-year-old forward bagged the PL Player of the Month award for his performances. As for the Spanish shot-topper, he was awarded the Save of the month. The Dutch head coach was also Manager of the Month.
Last month, the Red Devils took on Crystal Palace first and won 2-1. Then, we faced Leeds United twice, getting a draw and a victory. Leicester City were also overwhelmed by the Old Trafford side in their 3-0 loss.
Rashford scored in every league game last month. He got a goal each in the first three fixtures and then scored a brace against the King Power Stadium side.
The 25-year-old has been United’s talisman in the current campaign. With other forwards not contributing considerably in the final third, the England international has shouldered the burden of our attack.
This season, the Red Devils’ academy graduate is having one of his best seasons. The winger has found the back of the net 26 times in 41 appearances in all competitions and has also provided nine assists.
De Gea has also been a key player for the Old Trafford side over the years. The 32-year-old has made some impressive saves over the years. The Spaniard managed to pull off a great one in the win over Leicester, stopping Kelechi Iheanacho’s header.
Ten Hag was appointed in the United dugout last summer. The former Ajax head coach has managed to steady the ship at the Old Trafford side. The gaffer has shown great astuteness with his tactics and substitutions on most occasions.
