(Video) Casemiro heads home to give United crucial early lead against Chelsea

Casemiro has provided an absolutely crucial goal for Manchester United to give them an early lead against Chelsea.

Champions League football is now in United’s sights after the stalwart Brazilian found the back of the net in the sixth minute, netting his second goal in two successive matches. The opener has the Reds sitting third-placed in the table.

Casemiro opened his goalscoring account against the Blues back in October with an emphatic injury-time equaliser, so Chelsea will certainly fear lining up against him next season.

He is now on six goals for the campaign so far in all competitions.
