It was a good month for Manchester United Women as two members of the team earned awards for their work in January.

Manchester United winger Leah Galton has been named Barclays WSL player o the month, while manager Marc Skinner collected the manager of the month award.

This is the second month on the bounce which United have won both individual WSL awards, with Skinner also being crowned manager of the month in December — when the player of the month award went to Ella Toone.

However, after drawing with WSL leaders Arsenal at the weekend, United are back in action on Sunday to face rivals Manchester City, who are currently five points behind the Reds.

Arsenal take on Chelsea in a huge match-up on Friday night.

The dream for this United side may be to win the WSL – but right now the biggest objective is qualifying for the Champions League.

Skinner has given the side something to build on with plenty of games left to play.
