Nigeria born England youth international Eberechi Eze starred as Crystal Palace defeated already relegated Sheffield United at the Bramall Lane.
Palace scored only 67 seconds after Eze’s driving run down the centre of the pitch from just inside the Blades’ half, saw him skip between the three defenders before rolling the ball to Benteke who was unmarked down the left side of the penalty area.
His shot was tamed and would have been a simple save for Ramsdale but a deflection off the studs of George Baldock left him stranded and with no chance as the shot looped over his despairing dive and sailed into the net.
The second and decisive goal came two minutes from time courtesy of another wonderful solo run by Eze, although it was another deflected goal.
The winger slipped away from John Lundstram midway inside his own half by the touchline and embarked on a driving run towards the Blades goal.
He had options to set up a team-mate but decided to shoot with his effort striking John Fleck and wrong-footing Sheffield United goalkeeper, Ramsdale once more. Like the first, it was a goal which summed up Palace season.
