Vote for Manchester United's Player of the Month for November - Official Manchester United Website
It was a tough task selecting the three-man shortlist for Manchester United's November Player of the Month, with nine different Reds receiving nominations from our panel.
Ultimately, Michael Carrick, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Antonio Valencia were selected with fans invited to choose the monthly star man via our online poll or on Twitter.
Michael Carrick - 4 apps
The experienced midfielder has provided balance and security in a key position, featuring in three victories and the draw with Arsenal. Jose Mourinho has explained why he has had to treat the 35-year-old carefully but there has been no doubting his calming influence and ability to thread passes through to his attacking colleagues.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic - 4 (1) apps / 5 goals, 2 assists
Although he missed the clash with the Gunners due to suspension, the Swede still racked up five goals in November and almost claimed another when his effort was helped into his own net by Feyenoord goalkeeper Brad Jones. Two strikes at Swansea City got him back on the goal trail and, after nodding home Paul Pogba's pass against West Ham in the league, he breached the Hammers' defence twice more in the EFL Cup quarter-final.
Antonio Valencia - 4 apps / 2 assists
The Ecuador international is in the frame for the second successive month after returning from an arm injury with a bang. He appears capable of virtually playing dual roles of right-back and right-winger, defending with strength and aggression and powering forward to create chances. Two assists were notched - for Jesse Lingard against Feyenoord and Anthony Martial's second goal in the cup tie against West Ham.
