Two Manchester United players namely Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw are in contention for the Player Award for the month of January in the Premier League.

Both players have been named on the eight-man shortlist of players for the aforementioned Player of the Month Award.

Luke Shaw and Paul Pogba have both been instrumental to the Red Devils’ unbeaten league run since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was made the interim manager at the club.

Manchester United have maintained an unbeaten league run for almost three months since the former club striker took charge of the team in December.

During that time, French World Cup winner Pogba has scored eight goals in the league to propel his side to within one point of fourth-placed Arsenal in the keenly contested race for the top four.

Pogba and Manchester United are just five points off third spot with ten league games to go.

Luke Shaw has been in very good form since the start of the season.

Unlike Paul Pogba whose good form coincides with the appointment of Solskjaer, Luke Shaw was one of the best players under the sacked Jose Mourinho and he has continued that form into the Solskjaer era.

Teammate Romelu Lukaku believes that he is Manchester United’s best player this season.
