Eric Bailly has been nominated for the April Premier League Player of the Month and Jose Mourinho is up for the Manager of the Month award.
April was a testing time for Manchester United but we came through it undefeated with three wins and two draws, including our performance of the season in a 2-0 win over Chelsea at Old Trafford.
For Bailly, it was a superb month which saw him re-find his early season form and the fact Man United kept four clean sheets in five games, only conceding one goal to a free-kick against Swansea, is a real testament to how good Bailly has been at the back alongside a variety of partners.

Mourinho deserves this nomination for helping steer United through a difficult month which became even more difficult thanks to a barrage of injuries including a double cruciate ligament injury to Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo in the same Europa League game which ruled them out for the season.
Overall, this Premier League campaign hasn’t lived up to expectations but having gone 25 games undefeated – one of our best ever runs in the league – it is hard to argue against Mourinho’s inclusion.
Be sure to vote for Bailly and Mourinho HERE but regardless of whether they win, their inclusion is a testament to the continued improvement United have been making across the course of the year under Mourinho.
