United had a great October, 3/3 wins in the Premier League and 2/2 wins in the Champions set them up in great positions for both competitions.
United had several players stand out during these wins. Javier Hernandez was voted the Fans POTM on the official website, and that was richly deserved.
However, I like to choose my winner a little differently and base it on the beautiful GIF moments that have occurred over the month as well as the goals scored.
There were 4 players that stood out from Octobers posts – David de Gea, Javier Hernandez, Robin van Persie and Rafael (Great read on his form HERE), all of whom gave us some amazing little highlights to enjoy over an over again on here.
After much deliberation, I have named Robin van Persie the Beautifully Red Player of the Month. Here are 5 of his best GIF moments from October…
1. Goal v FC Cluj
Van Persie scored 4 goals during October, this, the 2nd of a match winning double in the Champions League was the pick of them.
2. Pass v Stoke City
After this 2 goals v FC Cluj, Van Persie said he wanted more assists as he looks to improve on his brilliant start in a red shirt. Passes like this show that he is more than capable of hitting his own high targets.
3. Assist v Stoke City
Its said that Strikers know how to cross a ball because they know exactly where they would love the ball to passed to if they were recieving it (Saw this lots with Solskjaer). This cross for Wayne Rooney is stunning. Pace, whip and begging for Rooney to finish it.
4. Skill v Braga
As well as his goals and assists, Robin van Persie is beautiful player to watch. This moment displays this with a beautiful piece of skill to get past 2 defenders.
5. Turn and Pass v Chelsea
In a moment that helped change the game in the huge league win at Stamford Bridge, Van Persies brilliant turn and pass to release Ashley Young saw the winger fouled and Chelsea down to 10 men.
So Congratulations Robin, the Beautifully Red Player of the Month for October.
