Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov has been included in the poll for Manchester United's Player of the Month award for December 2011.
"The Bulgarian played just 193 minutes of football in December, yet netted six times (a ratio of a goal every 32 minutes)," Manchester United's official website has pointed out.
"Three of those came against Wigan Athletic on Boxing Day, two hauled United back into contention against Blackburn Rovers and one was a cheeky backheeled finish at Fulham to notch his 50th strike for the club," it has added.
Michael Carrick, Phil Jones, Nani, Wayne Rooney and Antonio Valencia are also included in the poll.
Earlier this week, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson officially confirmed that the Bulgarian forward's contract will be extended by 12 months in March 2012.
