Manchester United are on the verge of making the top-four list as Casemiro’s ninth minute acrobatic strike gave the Red Devils all the three points against AFC Bournemouth in their final Premier League away game on Saturday May 20, 2023.

Casemiro has now scored five goals in all competitions this season for the Red Devils.

BBC reports that the Brazilian midfielder picked up a beautifully weighted pass from Christian Eriksen and turned away from Marcos Senesi to acrobatically hammer home.
Without their top goal scorer this season, Marcus Rashford, who was absent from the squad with illness and missed the opportunity to equal his best tally of 17 goals in a single campaign, United struggled to mount regular goal threats.
