Luke Shaw has won Manchester United's Player of the Year award.

The defender succeeds David De Gea, who won the award - also known as the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award - last season.

Thursday night's annual awards ceremony took place at Old Trafford, where Shaw was also named Players' Player of the Year, as voted for by his team-mates.

Mason Greenwood meanwhile won the Young Player of the Year award, Tahith Chong was named Reserve team Player of the Year and Andreas Pereira won the goal of the season award with his effort against Southampton.

Katie Zelem won the Women's Player of the Year award.

All of the Manchester United players were in attendance, dressed to the nines and joined by their significant others.

The mood wasn't as light as it has been in previous years though, given United's disappointing campaign.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had hoped to secure Champions League football for next season with a top four finish this season.

But the Norwegian was unable to get a win against relegated Huddersfield at the John Smith's Stadium last time out.

As a result Manchester United cannot finish in the top four this campaign, even ahead of their final match of the season.
