Manchester United midfielder Casemiro put in an excellent performance as the Red Devils eased to a 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night.
The Brazilian not only provided the assist for Fred‘s goal, he also made three key passes and five tackles, as he was deservedly handed the man of the match award.
Supporters on Twitter have been praising Casemiro, with many believing the decision to shell out £70m on the 30-year-old is already paying off:

There were a few doubters when the Brazilian first arrived at Old Trafford. He did look off the pace in his first few matches for United and there were concerns that the club may have signed a player who was over the hill.
However, since then, Casemiro has been consistently superb and he has clearly demonstrated why he has won an incredible five Champions League trophies, as well as numerous other titles, during his illustrious career.
