Bamford has been voted the PFA Fans' Bristol Street Motors Premier League Player of the Month for September and October having scored six goals in United's first six games, including a hat-trick in a 3-0 romp at Aston Villa.

The Whites striker came out on top from a six-man shortlist that also featured Villa's rapidly rising England star plus Tottenham Hotspur duo Son and Harry Kane.
