After scooping the club’s player of the month award earlier this week, was today named the Premiership’s player of the month too.

The Dutch striker was rewarded for a month that saw him hit 5 goals in 6 appearances helping United to 5 wins in 6 games including an away 3-2 win against Man City where he scored the deciding goal.

Upon receiving the award the 29 year old said:

“It was a big month for us.

“You have certain periods during a season when it goes your way and December was one of those periods.”
