Four Manchester United players nominated for player of the month for September

It was a close-run thing, but we can confirm four nominees for September's Player-of-the Month award at Manchester United.

After a fabulous spell, it was too difficult to whittle the shortlist down to our usual three names so Marouane Fellaini, Romelu Lukaku, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford all make the cut.

Phil Jones, Nemanja Matic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan also picked up votes.

Marouane Fellaini - Appearances/Goals: 3 (1) / 3
The big Belgian missed the only game where United have dropped points this term, at Stoke City, due to injury, but came off the bench to good effect by scoring in the Champions League opener with Basel.

He performed well against his former club Everton and in the victory at Southampton, but his finest display of the month came last Saturday.

He not only scored twice against Crystal Palace but also picked up our Man-of-the-Match award.

Romelu Lukaku - Appearances/Goals: 6 / 7
The Reds' leading marksman just cannot stop finding the net.

He sat out the Carabao Cup triumph over Burton Albion but was on the scoresheet in all of the other matches.

A first-half brace at CSKA Moscow followed a strike on his Champions League group-stage bow versus Basel and his confidence is sky high at the moment.

It is remarkable to think, had Kasper Schmeichel not saved his penalty in the Leicester City clash, he would have scored in every single game so far this term.

Anthony Martial - Appearances/Goals: 3 (3) / 3
Currently in terrific form, the 21-year-old has been unplayable at times and he thrilled Old Trafford with his display against Burton.

Even when coming off the bench, he has instantly produced the goods and came up with another assist in the win over Palace.

He expertly converted penalties in the convincing victories against Everton and CSKA Moscow, playing a part in all four goals in the Russian capital, and has been leaving defenders trailing in his wake with a series of spellbinding dribbles.

Marcus Rashford - Appearances/Goals: 5 (2) / 4
The youngster has showed his class throughout September after being credited with a goal at Stoke when he deflected in Paul Pogba's header.

He came off the bench to net on his Champions League bow, against Basel, and ran Burton ragged in the Carabao Cup, netting twice and setting up Martial's strike.

The forward's defensive work drew praise at Southampton in a gritty 1-0 win and, of course, he claimed the assist for two of the goals in the victory over Palace.
