Speaking to EPL website, the Ecuador defender said, “I am delighted to receive this award for Carling Goal of the Month and I’d like to thank everyone who voted for me.

“It’s a goal that I am proud of, I just hit it into the back of the net and then heard the crowd erupt at Old Trafford.

“It was a great feeling and it gave us the start we needed against Everton; we came away with three points which ended the day perfectly.”
