Four United stars named in WhoScored team of the month

Almost half of the outfield players WhoScored have named in their team of the month for February play for Manchester United.

United took seven points from a possible nine last month, and the fact we didn’t concede a goal in any of those three matches has played a major part in the selection.

Three players signed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and another who have been transformed under him made the cut.

Defensive dominance

Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s nine tackles, five interceptions and one assist earn him the right back slot in the side, with Luke Shaw in at left back.

RONALDO NEEDS TO STOP WHINING.

Shaw’s 12 clearances, eight interceptions and five tackles indicate he is now back to full fitness, and he showed his versatility by playing left back and left centre back last month.

Harry Maguire also featured, thanks largely to his goal and man of the match display in the 2-0 win at Chelsea which was so crucial in the race for the Champions League.

Bruno’s instant impact

Bruno Fernandes rounded off the United contingent in the side and he was the best player in the Premier League by WhoScored’s ratings last month.

In the 3-0 win over Watford, he put in the best performance of any United player all season, according to the stats.

The numbers are backing up what the Reds faithful can see with their own eyes and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will want to see more of the same this month.
