Cardiff City goalkeeper Neil Etheridge has been named on the final team of the week in the Premier League this season.

The Philippines shot stopper was rewarded with a spot on the list of the best players for Matchweek 38 after his heroics for Cardiff City in their phenomenal win at Manchester United.

The Red Devils lost 2-0 at home to the Welsh outfit courtesy a brace from Nathaniel Mendez-Laing either side of the halftime interval.

It was the first win for Cardiff City over Manchester United in the Premier League era.

Cardiff City achieved the feat despite the fact that their relegation from the Premier League had been confirmed long before the game.

Their relegation was officially confirmed in the penultimate league game of the season which ended in a 3-2 defeat at home to London club Crystal Palace.

Cardiff City Neil Etheridge was deservedly named on the Premier League Team of the Week list as compiled by popular media outlet Goal after he made ten saves to thwart the Manchester United attackers.

On their part, Manchester United ended the season on a disastrous note with the Cardiff City defeat.

The Red Devils recorded just one point from their final five games in the Premier League this season.
