Manchester United had a good month in November, given that they aren't playing at their best right now. They lost two, won two, and drew one of their five November games. Let's take a peek at their November schedule.
It was their fourth Champions League meeting against Atalanta on 2 November. In the end, the game concluded 2-2 thanks to two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, keeping Manchester United in the competition. They were beaten 2-0 by Manchester City on November 6th, when they played at the Etihad Stadium. Eric Bailly's own goal and a Bernardo Silva tap-in were enough to earn Pep Guardiola's team the win in this match.
Against Watford on November 20th, they were beaten 4-1. This victory was secured thanks to goals from Joshua King (Ismail Sarr), Joao Pedro, and Emmanuel Dennis.
Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho helped Manchester United beat Villarreal 2-0 on the 23rd of November. Manchester United's meeting against Thomas Tuchel's side finished in a 1-1 tie on November 28th. Jorginho equalized after Jadon Sancho's opener.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho, and David de Gea were all nominated for Manchester United's best player of the month at the end of the month. Even though David de Gea conceded several goals, he won the honor. This is why David de Gea didn't deserve the Player of the Month Award for September:
He was only able to keep a clean sheet in one of his five Champions League appearances, against Villarreal. For a goalkeeper of his caliber, that's not a good record at all. He preserved just one clean sheet and allowed nine goals in five appearances for Manchester United in the month of September.
However, Ronaldo has saved his teammates several times by scoring the crucial goals they needed. He scored three goals in five games, rescuing his side from the clutches of Villarreal and Atlanta respectively. During their game against Watford, he also provided an assist (to Van de Beek). David de Gea didn't deserve to be named FIFA's Player of the Month, according to Ronaldo.
