United Briefing: Countdown to annual awards reveal

So who do the players think is most worthy of the individual prize? We spoke to six of them to get their thoughts on the subject…

Eric Bailly: “I don’t want to say but you know, we have many players who improved this season. Harry, Victor, Luke Shaw – I’m very happy for him. He’s improved a lot. And Bruno Fernandes, he’s changed a lot of things since he came.”

Victor Lindelof: “I think Luke Shaw has been brilliant. Obviously, Bruno has been brilliant as well. Rashy, as well, scoring and assisting some great goals for us. It is very difficult, I’m not sure, but it has to be one of those three, I think. If I have to go with one I will go with Bruno as I think he’s been absolutely brilliant, unbelievable, with his goals and assists. Even if I want to give it to a fellow defender, I can’t deny Bruno’s stats, goals and assists.”

Juan Mata: “We were speaking about it in the dressing room and joking with Bruno and Luke. Probably, for me, they both deserve it. Luke has been, especially over the last months, very, very consistent and given us a lot from his position, offensively and defensively. But Bruno, for me, has been the more consistent player in the team. Always, even when he is not having the brightest day, he is creating something for us. To be honest, I think he was Player of the Year as, since he came here, he’s been fantastic. He’s a great team-mate and a great guy and I’m very happy for him. He deserves it.”

Scott McTominay: “Who gets my vote? Probably I’d say Luke Shaw. He’s just been top; really, really good. Like really, really good. It’s no surprise to me that he’s been that good.”
