Bruno Fernandes has been voted Manchester United Player of the Month, for the month of March, beating Odion Ighalo, Fred Rodriguez and Harry Maguire to the award.

The Portuguese midfielder, who has been sensational for the Red Devils since his arrival in January, picked up the prize for the second consecutive month.

Fernandes scored once and assisted two more goals in four games for United in the month under review and was voted as the top performer by the club fans.

The ex-Sporting Lisbon man won the award in his first month and was also voted as the PFA and Premier League player of the month.

Nigerian forward, Ighalo, Brazilian midfielder, Fred, and England defender, Harry Maguire, were the other nominees for the prize.

Ighalo scored three times for the Reds in March, including a brace against Derby County in the FA Cup before following it up with a goal and an assist in their 4-0 defeat of LASK in the Europa League round of 16.

For Fred, his rise to becoming the heart of the United midfield has been steady. The man from Belo Horizonte has also improved, with his end product going forward. Fred assisted two goals in his team's last game before football action was suspended.

Harry Maguire earned his place on the nominations due to his dominant displays in United defence, helping the side keep two clean sheets in the three games he played in March. He also made a remarkable 15 headed clearance in the game against Everton.
