2 min read

Manchester United fans are split on their player of the season so far, with Luke Shaw narrowly beating Bruno Fernandes in MEN Sport’s poll.

Over 27,000 United fans responded to the poll, with two clear favourites as to who should be named player of the year.

Shaw gained 48 per cent of the vote with 13,455 votes, narrowly beating Fernandes into first place.

Attacking midfielder Fernandes earned 46 per cent of the vote, with a total number of 12,499 – just 956 votes behind Shaw.

The duo were clearly out in front of the rest of their teammates, with the next highest vote share being Scott McTominay at just three per cent.

McTominay came third with 898 fans voting for him after a strong season for the Scotland international.

Fourth in the vote was Marcus Rashford, who was over 300 votes behind McTominay, with 585 fans saying he should win the award.

In fifth was Paul Pogba, who had 453 fans voting for him.

It means United fans are clear in the fact that either Shaw or Fernandes deserve to win the award after standout seasons for the duo.

Shaw has enjoyed an excellent campaign, making 27 Premier League appearances and chipping in with a healthy five assists and one goal from left-back.

The 25-year-old has enjoyed a renaissance on the left side of defence after his United future seemed up in the air a few seasons ago.

Meanwhile, Fernandes picked up from where he left off last season and has continued to be a talismanic figure for United.

In his first full season at the Reds, Fernandes has scored 16 Premier League goals and contributed 11 assists in a fine campaign that has seen him become a leader in the Old Trafford dressing room.
