Manchester United’s strong finish to the 2019/20 Premier League season, has seen some of the club’s stars get recognition in some of the country’s major award categories.

Last month, we saw Bruno Fernandes clinch both the player of the month and goal of the month awards, despite competition from some of the league’s finest, and this month, Anthony Martial has been given an opportunity to repeat the feat.

Martial has been nominated for player of the month of July, after helping United finish in third on the Premier League table.

He’s nominated alongside notable names like, Harry Kane (Tottenham), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Michail Antonio (West Ham), Olivier Giroud (Chelsea), Christian Pulisic (Chelsea) and Nick Pope (Burnley).

Martial has also been nominated in the goal of the month category, for his stunning strike against Bournemouth.

It would be great to see the Frenchman pick up both or one of these awards, at least, as he’s worked hard this term, and it’s a fitting way to cap off what has been his best season since arriving at Old Trafford.
