Manchester United are continuing their march into next season’s Champions League and have now taken the lead against Bournemouth in their 36th Premier League game.
United need six points from three games to secure a top-four finish and with less than 10 minutes on the clock, midfield general Casemiro has given his side the lead with a sumptuous finish.
Last summer’s major midfield signing made a run past Bournemouth’s backline and after a failed clearance from the Cherries, Casemiro made no mistake as he swiveled and slammed the ball in with an overhead kick, as seen below.

Three points in this fixture would keep Liverpool at bay, with United enjoying at least a four-point advantage over their rivals going into the final week of domestic action.
