Although the team has really improved defensively since the coming of interim manager Ralf Rangnick, Degea has been a key player to most of United's wins. In January, Degea appeared in five matches in January saving a total of 22 shots across all the games he played.
Among the other contenders, Degea majestically won the poll scooping 67% of the votes. Been his third win of the season, he is the top player to have the award followed by Cristiano Ronaldo who won the award in September and October.
Having a goalkeeper scoop such an award three times tells a lot about a club. For a team with great strikers and midfielders like Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes, it is weird that a goalkeeper comes out as the most important person of the team for three consecutive months.
