Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard. Scholes picked up the early award after turning the clock back to some vintage Scholes performances, he ran circles around Newcastle United, scoring one and laying on two. Net time out he hit a wonderful goal for United at Fulham, fizzing in a shot from the edge of the area before the game finished 2-2. His goal was his 150th. Scholes rounded off the month by playing a key role in a 3-0 victory over West Ham.
