Manchester United's January fixtures have concluded and it proved to be a successful month as the team went unbeaten in their seven matches. Sir Alex Ferguson's side picked up ten points out of a possible twelve in the Premier League and they will end the month seven-points clear of nearest title-contending rival Manchester City. In addition, they've advanced through two rounds of the FA Cup as well.
As one might imagine after a successful month like that, there were numerous players who contributed significantly. The likes of Robin van Persie (5 goals), Javier Hernandez (4 goals), and Wayne Rooney (4 goals) were prolific in attack, Michael Carrick continued to be United's heartbeat, Phil Jones thrived in whatever position Sir Alex asked him to play, Ryan Giggs (at 39-years-old) continued to be a boss, while the likes of Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra, and Rafael helped keep things tight in the back.
