United have won another double – after Sir Alex Ferguson and Dimitar Berbatov were named Barclays Manager and Player of the Month respectively.
The Reds are renowned for moving up a gear at the turn of the New Year and this season has proved to be no exception. Sir Alex’s side won 13 points from a possible 15 in January to maintain an unbeaten league run in 2010/11. The only draw they faced was at Spurs which was a very close game indeed.

While the boss has now won the monthly award an unprecedented 25 times, Berbatov picks up the gong for the first time on his own after sharing it with former Tottenham team-mate Robbie Keane in 2007 during his Spurs days.
The Bulgarian marksman struck five goals in January to take his tally to 19 this season, including two in the Reds' sensational come-from-behind victory over Blackpool, a result that could well prove crucial come the end of the campaign.
United are cruising along well, but there are some big games lined up ahead which include Chelsea (both home and away, thanks to snow?), Arsenal and Liverpool (both games away) and Man City (Home).
