There are often turning points, single moments in a match, when fans look back and think ‘that kickstarted his career’.
The Old Trafford faithful possibly witnessed that exact moment on Saturday when Victor Lindelof arrived – in more ways than one – with a crunching, but fair, challenge on Anthony Knockaert which seemed to help inspire the Reds to defeat Brighton.
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.
Setting the scene… For the first time in almost a month, United will be in action at Old Trafford this weekend for what is always an eagerly awaited fixture and especially since Spurs became bona fide title challengers.
This battle between the second and third-placed teams, who have the same tally of 20 points after nine games, seems an apt way to open the Premier League weekend. Both sides, who had contrasting results in the Carabao Cup in midweek, know that three crucial points are at stake in a bid to put pressure on leaders Manchester City, so we could be in for a fascinating encounter.
