Paul Pogba beats out Luke Shaw to bag Manchester United award


United’s January

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Reds, save for a couple of blips along the way, enjoyed a solid opening month to the year.

United took to the pitch on 9 occasions across all competitions, securing 5 wins and 2 draws, a run which included the ousting of Liverpool from the FA Cup.
