With his all-action midfield displays making him a real fan-favourite at Old Trafford, the Brazilian has now added stunning goals to his list of attributes following a wonderful overhead kick against the Cherries.

With Christian Eriksen clipping the ball into the box, Casemiro oozed class as he acrobatically slammed home from close range to put United 1-0 up at the Vitality Stadium.

Speaking on talkSPORT 2 commentary, Nigel Adderley described the goal, saying: “Casemiro with an acrobatic volley and what a goal for Manchester United!

“Of all people, it’s Casemiro who comes up with the sort of finish made famous by Cristiano Ronaldo and United remain firmly on course for the Champions League.”

Former Arsenal star Perry Groves was on co-commentary duty and couldn’t hide his pleasure after seeing the quality of the goal.

He said: “What a finish from Casemiro. You think that’d be the other way around with Casemiro being a little bit deeper and Eriksen making the run into the box but Casemiro makes a blindside run from deep in the midfield.

The Brazilian was delighted after scoring his sixth goal of the season

“He got away from his marker and it’s a great little chipped ball from Eriksen.

“There’s no pressure on him whatsoever, he just takes a little touch off Senesi and as the ball goes into the air Casemiro acrobatically is there with his overhead kick.

“It’s fantastic athleticism and gives Neto no chance. What a finish!”
