The previous Real Madrid star began his first league game for United against Everton over the weekend, being awarded Man of the Match for his dominant display within the centre of the park. Casemiro was at fault for Everton’s opener but bounced back, assisting Cristiano Ronaldo’s winner within the forty fourth minute after Antony had equalised.
Speaking in regards to the performance, Ten Hag said: “He’s experienced. Even after a small mistake, he [remained] composed, he’s doing the fitting things. He has a big impact on the sport by winning so many balls and all the time in good positions to receive balls, to link up, to pass around, and he was really essential with the goal. An excellent ball in, a superb pass to Cristiano and a superb finish.”
