The Reds won four out of four in the Premier League in the first month of 2008, without conceding a single goal. Ronaldo provided a fine backheel that set up Carlos Tevez's winner against Birmingham, scored a hat-trick - his first ever in United colours - against Newcastle United, clinched the 2-0 win over Reading with a stoppage time solo effort then scored a quickfire a double against Pompey, the second, according to his boss, was the best free-kick ever scored in the Premier League.

It is a bit of a landmark for Fergie: he's landed his 20th managerial award. Ronaldo, after only four and a half years in England, has only three - but everyone would be surprised if this amount remained so low...
