Ramsdale suffered a second relegation in two years from the top-flight as United followed the route of Bournemouth back to the Championship, but the goalkeeper excelled individually to pick up a second player of the year award in as many seasons.

Ramsdale was serenaded with chants of ‘England’s No.1’ as he played his first senior game in front of Blades fans at Bramall Lane, and said: “The win was hugely important.

“We spoke about taking some momentum into next season and in the last five or six games, we’ve had wins and good performances.
