Stevens and his United teammates have taken the Premier League by storm this season and were seventh, with a game in hand on fifth-placed Manchester United, when the season was suspended indefinitely.

Stevens has been a revelation at left-back since joining the Blades, shortly after winning League Two with Portsmouth.

And in an Instagram live video with his former teammate back in Ireland, Alan Cawley, Stevens was asked about his teammates, Ollie Norwood and John Fleck.

"Flecky is different gravy," Stevens admitted.

"He'd be my favourite player. Him and David McGoldrick, maybe.

"Ollie can run a game... his technique, I've never seen technique like it.

"It's scary how he can ping a ball. That's the balance we have.

"We have Ollie sitting and Flecky and Lunny [John Lundstram] running with the ball, which they're brilliant at.

"Lunny didn't play a lot for us in the Championship but he's kicked on in the Premier League, and I'd put that down to the manager [Chris Wilder] again."

As well as continuing United's push for Europe, Stevens was also braced for his country's key Euro 2020 qualifier against Slovakia last month. But that game, like the rest of professional football, was postponed, and the Euros were later pushed back until the summer of 2021.

"It was a bit disappointing to see that game postponed," Stevens added. "One of the biggest highlights of my career has been representing my country."
